New Jersey thrash n' rollers HAMMER FIGHT recently completed work on 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. On April 4th, Hammer Fight will kick off their Spring 2013 Tour, which will take the band out their native New Jersey and across the Midwest for a string of dates before hooking up with California skate thrash legends PSYCHOSOMATIC for one of the most liver-damaging and ear-splitting packages of 2013.
