Sorry it has been so long without any real news to report or any shows on the calendar! It has been a crazy year full of marriages, job changes, band member changes, and drawn out recording sessions and mixing strategies, and we are very pleased to announce that we are now finishing up the mix of the first half of our new, yet-to-be-titled, double album that will see a release this coming late spring/early summer. We have written and recorded over 90 minutes of new material and have decided to split it up into two halves of one full record and will both come out in 2008.
We are planning on posting a new song or two by the end of this month, so make sure to check back for updates.
We thank you all for your patience and we know you will not be disappointed.
Casey, Cory, and Mike
3 days ago our van, trailer, and all of our gear was stolen from right out front of our house. Someone broke into our van, hotwired it, and made off with everything we own. We lost about $30,000 worth or gear and merch, not including our van and trailer. We are pretty bummed, but we arent letting it get us down. We do need your help though. If any of you can donate in any way to us, it would greatly help us out. We have a paypal account that you can "send money" to. The paypal name is: fightingmike. Anything helps! If you want to contact us, please do. We need your support and prayer.

Fighting Jacks are a group of musicians that started in August of 2000; Casey Linstrum(Vocals/Guitar), Cory Linstrum(Bass/Vocals), Mike Wright(Guitars), David Provenzano(Drums/Percussion), set out to write passionate and creative music within the rock and roll spectrum. Through working with a number of great drummers, playing hundreds of West Coast shows and touring the country relentlessly throughout 2003 through the winter of 2004, the band has gained a very loyal following through their powerful live shows, hard work ethic and personal interaction with their fans. Once Fighting Jacks hooked up with David Provenzano as a permanent addition on the kit in April 04, they were able to spend the rest of 2004 on the road as well. The gained experience under their belts has initiated them into writing music for their next album much more true to their influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Radiohead and Smashing Pumpkins. With this new momentum, Fighting Jacks have challenged themselves to push aside their boundaries to create new music full of true passion, intensity, and worldwide appeal.
