Below is our complete Final Fight news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Final Fight have cancelled the majority of their summer tour. According to the band, "We are VERY sorry to announce that we are forced to cancel the majority of our summer tour for reasons out of our control. We may have a more official statement posted within the next few days. Touring and playing shows and meeting people are why we are a band, but there are some things in life that are more important. We will most likely be playing most of the California dates with ruiner." Most of the summer tour included plans to tour the country with Set It Straight, from July 8th through August 4th. Instead, Set It Straight will carry on without Final Fight.

CA hardcore band Life Long Tragedy has signed to Deathwish Inc.

Los Angeles hardcore band Final Fight have also inked a deal with Deathwish Inc. Final Fight's previous full-length from was "Under Attack," released via Straight On Records in 2005.
