Hardcore/thrash/crossover band Cage Fight, has released a new single titled, “Respect Ends.” The accompanying video – satisfyingly played out by Cage Fight vocalist, Rachel Aspe – arrives as a warning to those that attempt to prey on others.

Discussing the meaning behind the track, Rachel explains:

“This song is dedicated to men (or in fact anyone) who thinks it’s ok to harass, abuse, make inappropriate comments or not take no for an answer, both in the real world and also online. It’s also a message of solidarity to those who have been victims of such behaviour. The video is symbolic of the frustration and damage this can cause, and it’s something we, as a society, should not and will not accept. The final message is clear. If this is how you behave, stay the f**k away. Otherwise, you will regret it.”

The track is taken from their upcoming debut album, due on May 13th and available for pre-order now through Candlelight Records. The band has also announced an extensive run of tour dates including shows with Sepultura and festival appearances across the Summer.

Artwork for “Cage Fight” by Cage Fight

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
