Hardcore alt-rockers Cage Fight, have 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. You can watch it below.
Rachel explains, “Respect Ends” 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 but also online.
“It’s also a message of solidarity to those who have been victims of such behavior. 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.”
Cage Fight will release their debut self-titled album on May 13 via the Candlelight label. One of the most furious hardcore records to emerge from the UK in years, the anger and frustration of Cage Fight’s self-titled debut album is the perfect catharsis for our times.
Meanwhile, Cage Fight, alongside Raging Speedhorn, have been announced as support to Sepultura across three UK shows. The band will be busy throughout spring & summer ‘22, playing various festivals; supporting the likes of Cro-Mags, Napalm Death, Svalbard and Shai Hulud as well as playing a free album their release party at Blondies, London, on May 26.
