If this isn’t big news, then we don’t know what is.

Fightstar took to social media this morning to drop an absolute bombshell – a brand new album and UK headline tour are coming. The four-piece are set to release Behind The Devil’s Back on the 16th October. 

In an interview with Kerrang!, frontman Charlie Simpson says: “We were so blown away with the fans response to our 10 year anniversary shows earlier this year, that we wanted to get into the studio and work on the new material we had stockpiled during the hiatus,” explains frontman Charlie Simpson. “This album is fresh and modern but still uniquely identifiable as Fightstar. We hope the fans will love it as much as we do, as we had a lot of fun making it. Since we had been away so long, once we were in the studio the ideas flew thick and fast, and the album took shape very organically. It’s a true collaborative effort between all four of us, and it shows that our chemistry is still as sharp as ever. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”.

To celebrate their follow up to 2009’s Be Human, the band will be touring around the UK from the 17th. Be sure to check out all the dates below.
