EP: Now or Never
Released: July 14 2011
Label: Baltar Records

"Brilliantly crafted songs that deserve to be heard. Not to be missed. Awesome." - Guy Davies, Reuben / Freeze The Atlantic 

Some UK bands consistently slip under the radar, eking out sold out show after sold out show and playing to rapturous audiences, but for whatever reason never garnering quite the deserved praise for their output to give them a bigger reach. Fear No Fish were one of those bands. Having been together for almost a decade, the London trio (completed by twin brothers, guitarist Chris and bassist Mike Ransome, and drummer Rob Walker) last year released a single called Stay which helped them win a place at the In The City Songwriting Collective’s songwriting session. In the same year they won the Liberty Radio UK Battle of the Bands and reached the final of JAR Music’s 2010 International Breakout Music Festival Final at the Islington 02 Academy. The track also reached number 1 in the unsigned chart and held this position for 3 weeks, hanging around in the top 40 for 11 weeks! Things were beginning to look up...

Happy to admit that Now Or Never came to fruition in the light of many ups and downs, the resulting EP is one of tremendous ambition and flecked with the influence of modern day alternative rock behemoths Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters, as well as scene heroes Reuben.

Singer and guitarist Chris Ransome says: “We’ve recorded loads of tracks over the years in a number of studios at different stages of maturity as a band, and we feel we hit the nail on the head with this release. The whole process just turned out to be a lot of fun. It feels good to be able to put something out there that we’re really excited about. This is the culmination of a lot of ups and downs for us as a band over the last year and we can’t wait to start this new one on a high!" 

The EP’s very title encapsulates just the sentiment that Fear No Fish feel after almost a decade on the sidelines. It’s Now Or Never.
