Give em hell, turn their heads, gonna live life till we’re dead – give me scars, give me pain, then just save me – there goes a fighter
Gym Class Heroes released their fifth studio album The Papercut Chronicles II on November 15th of last year. Singles “Stereo Hearts” & “Ass Back Home” featuring Neon Hitch have both done well on radio around the world and I’m also excited about the newest single from the project: a song called “The Fighter” featuring Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). A mid-tempo well produced radio track, “Fighter” stands out for me in terms of all the singles released so far and has great Top 40 radio potential. Initially released as a promo single, the song is starting to generate some buzz online and I am hoping to hear confirmation soon that a music video in the works.
I find it hard to read that The Papercut Chronicles II has only sold 40 000 copies to date but these guys very unfortunately also fall under the title of “singles artist” (like with so many radio engineered artists likeFlo Rida). I’m hoping that sales will start to pick up a little in coming months and I would recommend that you buy this album if you like what you have heard from the three singles. While reviews have been mixed the featured collaborations are great and it will be worth adding this one to your collection.
