Fixation announce new single “Random Acts Of Violence” 

Author Benedetta Baldin - 14.6.2024

Fixation is back with a new song and announces an EP before taking the stage at several European festivals this summer! The band, originally from Norway, has quickly established themselves as one of the major new rising stars in metalcore. Their debut album was released in 2023, and that same year, Fixation performed over 60 international concerts. It was such an impressive year that they won the “Breakthrough of the Year” category at the Norwegian Publishing Awards earlier this year, as the first metal band ever.

On June 14th, Fixation returns with a new single titled “Random Acts of Violence”! The track will offer a preview of what fans can expect from the upcoming EP, which is set to be released this fall.

With the new song, Fixation continues to challenge and fascinate, presenting a harder sound compared to the band’s previous tracks. But it’s not just hard metalcore we’re introduced to. “Random Acts of Violence” features grand synths, heavy guitars, exceptional vocal performances, and seamlessly incorporates electronic elements, stadium rock, and metal into the mix. Fixation stays true to their signature style, delivering a track that is both catchy, melodic, hard-hitting, and impactful!

‘Random Acts of Violence’ is a conceptual journey that takes the listener into a story about a protagonist who feels ostracized from society and seeks meaning and belonging, but ends up finding solace in a cult. The story unfolds throughout our upcoming EP, and this single is where the story begins. Fixation

This summer, Fixation will play at major festivals in Europe, including Tuska in Finland, Summer Breeze Open Air and Full Force in Germany, and Masters of Rock in the Czech Republic. But this is nothing new for the young band, which in 2023 completed two extensive European tours with Devin Townsend and Annisokay, in addition to playing at prestigious festivals such as Download UK, Prognosis NL, Eurosonic NL, and Rock Imperium ES.

Fixation has quickly cemented its position on the international scene, and the response from both the press, fans, and the industry has been overwhelming. Renowned media houses like the BBC and genre-leading bands like Bring Me The Horizon have also taken notice of the young stars. 
“Jordan from Bring Me The Horizon texted me and was like what band was that, what was that song called? Says a lot!” – Daniel P. Carter, BBC Radio 1 Rock Show
