Wind the clock back several decades and imagine a California summer of a much simpler time. Even if you weren’t around in those years, it probably isn’t all that tough to picture. In fact, you’ve probably seen it before on television or in the movies—whether it’s Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello injecting a dose of fun in the sun as part of their “Beach Party” collection of films, or perhaps on television in the ‘60s surfer girl comedic hit series “Gidget.” San Diego based party punk rockers Fight Fair look to bring that care free beach aesthetic back on their debut LP, California Kicks, on June 29th through Triple Crown Records. The album came to life in San Diego with Mike Green (Paramore, Yellowcard) on pre-production and mixing. Brian Grider, who also produced the band’s 2008 Settle The Score EP, produced the record. On their 11-track LP Fight Fair fuses their current punk influences with records and lifestyle of the ‘60s surf community.

“We wanted to take music back to its roots and do something that’s classic but original for the modern times right now. And also mix it with a kind of aggressive early punk style—it’s like mixing the Ramones with like The Beach Boys. We just wanted to do our own style and really make something cool that people could relate to and have fun over the summer, go to the beach,” says Alex Bigman, Fight Fair’s vocalist.

Fight Fair is currently on tour alongside Kill Paradise and Honor Bright. They will join the 2010 Van’s Warped Tour on June 25th at Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. Confirmed tour dates are listed below.
