Good Fight Music to release free fall compilation
Good Fight Music announces Choice Cuts, a free Fall 2015 sampler that serves as a document of all the latest, greatest noise from the Good Fight camp, in what has been the label’s most action-packed year to date, and hints at things to come in the near future.
Represented among the twenty songs on Choice Cuts are the latest tracks by label pillars like Old Wounds, The Banner, and Extinction A.D., and by more recent signings like Axis, Of Feather and Bone, Exalt, Great American Ghost, Nasty, and Nathan Gray of Boysetsfire.
Of special note:
“No Equilibrium,” the first new music by Hollow Earth to be revealed since Good Fight signed the Detroit doomsday crew this year. “No Equilibrium” will appear on the band’s Parting Remains EP, coming up this winter.
“Gone,” a classic Disembodied track, remixed and remastered by Will Putney (The Acacia Strain, Body Count), appearing on Transfiguration, a massive upcoming box set which spans the metallic hardcore pioneers’ entire career.
“You’re Welcome,” a brand new track by new signing Bottomfeeder, a New Jersey post-hardcore band featuring members of The Gaslight Anthem, Gates, and more, whose new EP, II, is on the way.
“Expire,” a song off The Contortionist’s 2010 debut album, Exoplanet, which has been remixed and remastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me) and will be reissued in January.
“The Acid Reign I/II,” a medley of two shelved songs recorded by metalcore favorite Scarlet during the session for its seminal album, Cult Classic.
And also included on Choice Cuts are tracks by friends from outside the Good Fight family — up-and-comers like Down In It, Vein, and Head Creeps.

Good Fight’s Rick Barnhart explains that the title is a nod to a 1999 Ferret Music/Trustkill Records comp of the same name that included bands such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Harvest, Disembodied, For The Love Of, Turmoil, and Nora. Barnhart, who was part of the Ferret team in the label’s heyday, gave this statement: “The original Choice Cuts was fucking great and I think this stands up to that and even exceeds it. Good Fight is the strongest it has ever been and I am really excited for all that’s in store for 2016.”
