    Fist To The Sky

    Alternative Metal

    Windy City metallers FIST TO THE SKY are a four piece melodic metal band. They pride themselves on their energetic and cohesive stage presence. What makes them unique is their brothership as a band and passion to put on a great show night after night. While their records sound well recorded and produced, you havn't truly experienced this band unless you have seen them live. Their musical ability to fuse melodic melodies into their heavy and in your face, but radio friendly sound is staggering. Not to mention their lead vocalist is also the bass player, which is rarely seen and heard of for a metal band. Mickey Murder is the vocalist and bass player. Flipp handles the lead guitar work, along with most backing vocals. Brothers Tom and Ted Munyer joined FTTS in September 2014. Tom takes care of rhythm guitar duties and Ted hits the skins. The band was founded by brothers Mickey Murder and Flipp, along with their cousin Hollywood. Hollywood exited the band in August 2014. 

    “Nothing to lose, something to prove, it’s the fuel to the fire that is this band.” says Flipp.

    After their initial formation in late 2008, the band focused the next year on writing for their first demo release. In May of 2010, FIST TO THE SKY’s first nine song self-recorded and self-produced demo album called "Light the World Up” was released. The release would later prove to be a success for FTTS, going on to independently sell over one thousand copies and counting.
      
    “Best Original Band of 2011” voted on by Suburban NiteLife Magazine.”

    FIST TO THE SKY has become known to play at some of the best venues in and around their hometown of Chicago, IL. The band has independently toured through Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan and are looking to keep hitting the pavement in 2014. During this time on the road, they have shared the stage with national acts such as Bullet For My Valentine, Halestorm, 12 Stones, Cavo, The Veer Union, Hell or Highwater, Rains, Janus, Madina Lake, and other well known bands such as Like A Storm, Blameshift, Underride and 3 Pill Morning.  

    “One of the hardest working bands I've seen and noticed” – Vision Entertainment

    Talent, dedication, desire and a well-rounded image have this band creating a buzz. They currently hold endorsements with Beaver Bottom Cabinets and Steve Clayton Guitar Picks. The band has also caught the attention of Chicago’s Rock Magazine editor Mario Salazar.

    “FTTS is a young group of rockers with fire in their eyes. They are a heavy rock band with somewhat of an alternative twist to their sound.” – Mario Salazar, www.ChicagosRock.com

    On December 6, 2011 the band released a two song single disc titled "Down Into Hell – Single." The disc and mp3 downloads can be purchased at a FTTS show, on iTunes, AmazonMP3, CD Baby, and all other major digital retailers. The "Down Into Hell - Single" was recorded at Mercenary Digital Studios in Zion, IL with engineer Scott Creekmore (Dirge Within, I Killed Everyone).

    Voted “Independent Band of the Year” for 2012 by Happyheadbanger.blogspot.com.

    With a very positive and overwhelming response from fans from the “Down Into Hell- Single” disc, the band decided to give back to the fans. On September 8th 2012, the band released a live music video for “Another Lesson Learned” which captured multiple shows the band did after their release. The music video features the band’s energetic and high octane live show, while showing that special connection that they have with their fan base and a “behind the scene” feel of what goes on with the band before and after shows.

     Currently, the band is heavily promoting their EP "Forever We Will Stand" that was mixed by Daniel Castleman (
    Trivium, As I Lay Dying) and mastered by Grammy award winner Brad Blackwood (All That Remains, Nonpoint, Shinedown). "Forever We Will Stand" made its worldwide debut on 10/29/2013.

    You can find the band on their website, right here at www.fisttothesky.com, or on the many social networking sites they update daily.
