Streamlining Title Fight’s early releases, The Last Thing You Forget brings together three separate EP’s to celebrate the humble beginnings of these Pennsylvanian phenoms. Framing the growth of the young band and positing the creative progression that inevitably led to 2011’s stunning full length, this record is a necessity for any fan of Title Fight.
