Fight Like Sin is an American hard rock band from scenic Lafayette, Indiana. The group was formed in early 2012 by lead vocalist and guitarist Cody Hughes (formerly of Chemcoma) and drummer Tim Stepp (formerly of Suncruiser). Later in the year, guitarist and backup vocalist Matt Holmes (formerly of Mainstay Profile) joined the two. Early 2013 brought bassist Blake Balensiefer (formerly of Hindsight) into the mix, to round out the band's current line-up.
Each member's paths had crossed before the band was assembled in 2012. Cody, Matt, and Tim have all shared a love for music since they first met in high school. Many hours were spent in various music projects together, including the marching band and guitar club. Blake was unable to participate in any of these reindeer games, since he didn't attend the same school. However, he did play in a few bands with both Cody and Tim prior to joining the Fight. Personal influences for each member vary in comfort and style, from Sevendust to Boston and from Taco Bell to Charmin Ultra Soft.
Fight Like Sin brings you a new, crisp, heavy rock sound that blends an unconventional lower tuning with an occasional harmonized melody. Similar sounding artist would include: Chevelle, Breaking Benjamin, and Evans Blue. The band is currently working on writing and recording their first EP, which is projected to be available by Summer 2013.
