Some of you have expressed confusion over why Fightstar would rerelease an album less than a year after its release. Charlie from the band has clarified for you.
Charlie UpdateWe're absolutely thrilled with the finished project. Whilst recording Be Human we were still writing and we still had numerous ideas and songs in various stages of completition. Unfortunately they were never finished before the official confirmation and tracklisting was announced.

We went back into the studio after our UK tour with mixed intentions, we decided that it'd be too early to record another record and as we've said previously, we didn't like the idea of releasing an EP so we came back to our unfinished...

Fightstar announced in their AP.net chat last night that they will release an iPhone application specially for their upcoming Be Human. From the band, "Anyone who plays can compete to win some SWEET guitars and you'll also get to hear some new album tracks in the game too. Its been a dirty sweaty beavering task to make it, but its almost ready." Speaking of beavering task, one of our users was nice enough to compile the chat and condense all of the band members' responses, which you can read here.
