FiXT is proud to announce the signing of Alternative, Metalcore, Metal, Rock trio Coping Method and debuting their first original single with FiXT “Hypomania.”
Brutal from the start “Hypomania” wastes no time setting the stage. Hard core industrial guitar riffs clash with turbulent rhythms for a fierce onslaught that doesn’t stop. Add in distorted synthesizers and a brutal vocal performance and Coping Method sets their foundation with an epic firestorm. Strap in, the ride starts now. “I want it. I need it.”
Also re-releasing with the debut single are two previous singles from the band, “Trauma” and “Vice Grip” each following the idea of bringing awareness for mental health issues, social issues, and other causes they band believes in.
“I’m super excited to be working with Coping Method on their upcoming album. They have an extremely unique sound that I feel is really pushing the boundaries of modern metal/electronic music. This is what FiXT is all about! They aren’t just a metal band with a few synths laid subtly under their guitars. These guys are really infusing electronics into their songs in a way that not many bands are doing. Couple that with extremely aggressive vocals, and catchy melodies like they have – and you’ve got something insanely special. I also genuinely appreciate their passion and storytelling in regards to mental health!” – Dave Hansen, FiXT A&R
FiXT previously re-released SURVIVE: Unit 01 EP, the groups’ four track EP originally released in 2022 and featuring four Rock singles, each a piece of their self described Unit 01.
Amidst the distorted undertones of low-tuned guitars, mangled synths, bludgeoning percussion, and ambient soundscapes, Lead Instructors Tyler Simpson (vocals) communicates each exercise to our trainees with both sonorous and restrained timbres. Fellow instructors Jed Stark (Guitar) and Chad Wunderle (Drums) help provide the sonic foundation for each trainee to integrate themselves into.
MISSION: Being a responsible citizen in our community is paramount to us as an organization. Future campaigns include raising money for mental health awareness, social issues and other causes we believe in.
Starting with heavy and thrashing “The Creed” declaring ‘death is not the creed that will define you,’ and continuing through the equally aggressive “Goner,” taking a moment to breathe in the ethereal “Ghosts,” and finally culminating in the combative “Like A Slave,” Coping Method explores the human experience through a heavy metal lens. Each single goes on the offensive and the EP as a whole is a defiant push against the status quo, a refusal to accept that this is where it ends, that this is where you stop and give up. Even the softer “Ghosts” pushes listeners to ‘relinquish the fear inside.’ The SURVIVE: Unit 01 EP is only a taste of things to come and already shows off the trio’s tremendous scope and talent. Strap in, the ride starts now.
