We Come Back Fighting the Villian
Coming together as friends to make music has made a monster of a band! In 2007 the band came together forming from what is now Fighting the Villain, climbing the ladder to in turn release their first awesome debut EP, Turn to the Ruins. Anywhere in Cali from small gigs at shows to coffee shop gigs this band has crawled before they have walked and you can really hear it in their music. After performing for many gigs and getting their fan base up FTV signed with Popsmear recording First Impression. Their latest single Last Goodbye mastered by Andrew Wade 😀 is now on Amazon!
Keep a lookout for a Southern Cali Tour from Fighting the Villian this year. Fighting the Villian really brings out the music of a Pop/Rock band with the beautiful voice of the lead singer Caitlyn Mae, backed up from her musical counterparts forming one of the most awesome bands that SikDailyMags has wrote about!
