Cage Fight releases emotional single ahead of summer festival appearance

British/French crossover aggressors Cage Fight have released a video for "My Dreams", a single version of the thrilling track from the band's self-titled debut album, released by Candlelight Records.

Directed by Alexandre Stark, check out the video:

Commenting on the track, guitarist James Monteith said: "The original version of 'My Dreams' is a slow, progressive track that closes our debut album and was never intended as a single. However, it was very well received live, so we reworked it into a more immediate and catchy song, and thought it worked so well that it was worth releasing to the world. It also serves as a transition to our new music, which has taken a darker turn."

Lead singer Rachel Aspe commented on the video: "Filmed at BTS Audiovisuel - Lycée Suge in Paris, director Alex Stark (who is also the guitarist for our good friends Gravity) perfectly captured the misery and struggle of the song. Visually, it represents feelings of isolation, internal battles in moving forward and understanding meaning and purpose. Persisting in the face of life's challenges and defeating inner demons."

The single is released ahead of a series of festival appearances in 2024, as well as the band's first club gig in Belgium.

Dates announced so far:

  • March 27: Inferno Fest (Norway)
  • June 6: Mystic Festival (Poland)
  • June 20: Fontaine-l'Évêque, MCP Apache (Belgium) - main show
  • June 21-23: Full Force (Germany)
  • June 28: Funeral Fest (UK) - main show

About the new material, James concludes: "Our second album is about 70% written and we're very excited to get into the studio and record it later this year. We wrote the first album within 6 months of meeting each other and it was born out of pure chemistry, but now we've had a few years to really discover our sound, which is deeper, darker and more aggressive. We can't wait to release it to the world!"

Cage Fight, whose line-up includes TesseracT guitarist James Monteith and former Eths singer Rachel Aspe, will enter the studio this summer to record their second album.

Since their formation in 2021, Cage Fight's visceral brutality has made a huge impact on the metal world with the release of their highly acclaimed self-titled debut album, as well as tours with Sepultura, Raging Speedhorn, Cro-Mags and Nekrogoblikon, and appearances at many festivals, including Bloodstock, 2000 Trees, Radar and Summer Breeze.
