David "Gus" Griesinger of BackstageAxxess.com recently conducted an interview with FIGHT OR FLIGHT. You can now watch the chat below.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT is the new band featuring DISTURBED guitarist Dan Donegan and drummer Mike Wengren, along with EVANS BLUE singer Dan Chandler, Sean Corcoran of RA on bass and Jeremy Jayson on guitar.
FIGHT OR FLIGHT's debut album, "A Life By Design?", failed to take off in its first week of release, selling just 4,200 copies to enter the Billboard album chart at No. 87. By contrast, the self-titled debut from DEVICE, the project led by DISTURBED frontman David Draiman, sold around 35,000 copies in its first week to enter the chart at No. 11.
Donegan began writing songs on his own last year and approached Chandler about a possible collaboration. The two began emailing music to each other and getting together to write whenever Chandler was in Chicago, where Donegan lives, until they had enough material to record a full album.
Donegan said in a statement about the FIGHT OR FLIGHT album, "This is more hard rock. It's got edgy moments, but there's more melody across the board. We had the chance to experiment as well. There are acoustic guitars and some electronics even. It's different all around."
Dan Chandler has been the vocalist for EVANS BLUE since 2009, when he replaced original singer Kevin Matisyn. The band's most recent offering was 2012's "Graveyard Of Empires".
