Backstage Session: I Fight Dragons

Posted by: Jack Appleby (04/03/12)
When you're a hybrid Pop-Rock/Chiptune band like I Fight Dragons, there's a certain fun to be had in performing "acoustic" renditions. The band was up to the challenge, showing off their infinite coolness with a (mostly) acoustic version of "cRaZie$" in our latest Backstage Session. It'll likely be the first acoustic sesh you've seen featuring Guitar Hero controllers, a Rock Band drum kit, and a Power Pad. Catch the band on Warped Tour this summer, and check the video in the replies. The band's got more in common with Motion City Soundtrack or The Starting Line than Game Boys.

Wait...is he actually playing the synth parts with a modded Rock Band controller? That's the coolest thing I've ever seen!

excellent band is excellent! although i love groups like anamanaguchi and fighter x, these guys are the most successful at incorporating chiptunes into their sound along with HORSE the band.
