Band stick first track in a year online

Fightstar are set to return with the first single in almost a year.

The band will release the track ’99’ as a free download from May 11 via Fightstar99.com.

“The inspiration behind ’99’ was based on the fact that you should cherish the seconds you have with the people you love when they are there, and not take them for granted,” explained frontman Charlie Simpson of the track. “Because when they are gone, you won’t have the chance to, and you will be left with the haunting thought that you could have.”

The band, meanwhile, are currently recording their second album in Los Angeles with Faith No More producer Matt Wallace, though they will return to the UK to play the Give It A Name festival next weekend (April 27-29).
