Norwegian metalcore act Fixation made their first appearance in 2020, and has since then positioned themselves as one of the most promising new international acts.
Garnering high praise from notable media outlets and earning a reputation for their dynamic live performances, raw talent, and impactful music, the band is now gearing up for their debut album with the release of a brand new single “Ignore the Disarray” set to drop March 30th!
About the new track the band states:”This song is about those with a desire to control other people. It’s not about religion itself, but about those who use religion or their perception of reality to justify oppression, hate and control.
Fixation’s unique blend of electronic elements, stadium rock, and post-metal, combined with their emotionally charged and thought-provoking lyrics creates a rollercoaster of melancholic aggression that leaves audiences wanting more.
Fixation is releasing their new single while they are on road supporting Devin Townsend on 32 tour dates all over Europe. To add to the already impressive year, they will also appear at festivals such as Download, Prognosis, and Rock Imperium – and supporting Imminence in Norway and Denmark.
Fixation’s ability to seamlessly blend various musical elements and touch on relatable topics makes them a standout. Their music speaks to a broad audience, and they create a sound that resonates with a whole generation – not just fans of a specific genre. With a exciting year ahead and with rising popularity, there is no doubt that Fixation is claiming their positions as a rising force in the music scene.

“It’s super-hooky well-crafted modern rock that pulls in metalcore, post-hardcore and stadium rock, and will tick all the right boxes that fans of Bring Me The Horizon, Thrice and Thirty Seconds To Mars will connect with immediately”– Kerrang! Magazine
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.
