We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Fixation’s new song “Hollow” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming Marked 7″, which is scheduled to be released on August 10, 2018 through WAR Records. You can pre-order the album here: WAR Records | iTunes | Bandcamp
Matthew Green of Fixation commented on the song:
I wrote this song about our tendency as people to talk rather than listen. Something damaging happens when we care more to be noticed than educated. It’s an instinct worth fighting.

About the band:
With an emphasis on lyrical potency and fast, aggressive songwriting, Fixation have pulled no punches since their formation in late 2017. Comprised of current and former members of Drowse, The Dividing Line, New Heart and Time’s Up, the Philadelphia hardcore outfit deliver combative, pointed hardcore for fans of Rival Mob, Nerve Agents, Arms Race, Youth of Today, No Tolerance, and Infest.
After releasing a demo in late 2017 as well as a 4 song promo earlier this year, Fixation hit the road touring the East Coast and Midwest sharing the stage with bands like Leeway, Miracle Drug, Chokehold and more.
Recorded and mixed by Wyatt Oberholtzer (Year of The Knife, The New Harmony), Marked features 8 tracks of no holds barred punk influenced hardcore that clocks in at just over 8 minutes with layout and design by Linas Garsys who has handled the art for such bands as American Nightmare, Ceremony, World Be Free, and more.
