Good Fight Music has just inked a deal with DOWN IN IT, featured on IDIOTEQ in the recent exclusive feature on NO RESTRAINT. From Wilmington, North Carolina, DOWN IN IT takes a fresh new stab at the chugging assault of the heaviest ’90s hardcore, a sound purveyed back in the day by bands like EARTH CRISIS, ANOTHER VICTIM and ADAMANTIUM. The young band, founded in 2014, has honed its pit anthems touring with the likes of OLD WOUNDS and RENOUNCED. An upcoming spring tour will see them tour the US with Savannah crew VATICAN. DOWN IN IT will record its debut album for Good Fight this year!

The band’s most recent release is a 2015 split with No Restraint, recorded by Andreas Magnusson (The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon). Stream it here and view the video for lead track “Heresy,” here.
Down In It fits right in amongst Good Fight’s expanding ranks – the label’s roster now boasts Old Wounds, Axis, Hollow Earth, Exalt, and Of Feather and Bone, among others.
Good Fight’s Rick Barnhart says, “We are really excited about Down In It. The band has come a long way in the year we have been aware of them. The progression from their demos to the songs on the No Restraint split is like night and day, and we are looking forward to hearing this next round of songs. Down In it is a band that would have been right at home in Ferret’s early days, among Disembodied, For The Love Of, and Torn Apart, but fits perfectly with Good Fight and our family in 2016.”
