FIST TO THE SKY
ROCK - Hard Rock/Metal
Windy City rockers FIST TO THE SKY are a four piece melodic metal band. They pride themselves on their ability to fuse great melodies into their heavy sound. The young quartet formed in the fall of 2008. Lead vocals are fronted by Mickey Murder on bass and Flipp on lead guitar. Rhythm guitarist Hollywood and drummer JD handle the backing vocals. The band was founded by brothers Flipp, Mick and cousin Hollywood.
“Nothing to lose, something to prove, it’s the fuel to the fire that is this band.” says Flipp.
Back in 2009 the band was focused on writing material for their nine song self-recorded album "Light the World Up.” It was released in May of 2010 and was recorded with a previous drummer. The release would later prove to be a success for FTTS, going on to independently sell over one thousand copies and counting.
FIST TO THE SKY have become known to play at some of the best venues in and around the Chicago-land area including The House of Blues – Chicago, Bottom Loun
