Hammer Fight Streaming New Song

New Jersey-based thrash n' roll heathens Hammer Fight have recently completed their full-length debut entitled "Chug of War." The album, which follows the band's 2011 self-titled EP, was recorded by Bobby Torres at The Machine Shop in Belleville, NJ. Chug of War features new guitarist Ryan Blackman, who stepped in to replace Rob Guidotti after his departure last fall. Artwork for Chug of War came from a collaboration between Hammer Fight bassist/vocalist Drew Murphy and Buz Hasson,
tattoo artist and co-creator of the comic book "The Living Corpse." Label and release date information for Chug of War will be announced in the coming months.

Hammer Fight has just posted its cover of Iron Maiden's "Be Quick or Be Dead" on its official StereoKiller page and will start posting new material from "Chug of War" on Monday, February 11th. Visit Stereokiller to check out the tunes.
