AXIS + Good Fight




Good Fight Music welcomes Axis to its family. 

The label will release debut full-length, Show Your Greed, on September 4th.

Right at home on the Good Fight roster amongst bands like Old Wounds and Hollow Earth, Orlando, Florida's Axis is another young band that's been absolutely killing it in the DIY hardcore scene.

Founded in 2010, Axis has toured hard with the likes of Bane, Blistered, and Eternal Sleep, and has released an EP and two splits – the latter with Self Defense Family, on Harm Reduction Records, the label co-owned by SDF frontman Patrick Kindlon and Code Orange drummer Jami Morgan.

Debut full-length Show Your Greed, set for a September 4th release on Good Fight, was recorded by the band, mixed by producer Taylor Young (of Nails and Twitching Tongues), and mastered by Brad Boatright (Noisem, Full of Hell).

On Show Your Greed, Axis takes the full-throttle beating of Turmoil and Buried Alive and laces it with the gloom of Kiss It Goodbye or All Else Failed. It is a shockingly powerful debut album, relentless and machine-like from start to finish, showing a young band hone its reverence of the past into a new, deadly thing.

Check out "Transgression," a track off Show Your Greed, and get the vibe, here.

Stay tuned for further details about this beast of an album.

Axis hits the road this summer with Old Wounds and Of Feather and Bone.
