Fiction Plane premieres 'Don't Give Up the Fight'

Rockers Fiction Plane, led by Sting's son Joe Sumner, premieres 'Don't Give Up the Fight' and gives us all reason to believe

It’s been a long week, but we’re in the homestretch, and we’ve got an anthemic new rocker to pick you up through Thursday. The band is Fiction Plane, and the track is the fist-raising “Don’t Give Up the Fight,” from their forthcoming fourth studio album Mondo Lumina.

We’re really feeling the song’s atmospheric acoustics and timely tambourine taps. Frontman Joe Sumner has an impressive set of pipes, too, which is no surprise considering his father is none other than Sting himself. 

"After three years without making an album we were stuck writing songs in a New York apartment with all of our kids so we had to keep the noise down,” Sumner tells Billboard. “Playing a hand drum, a ukulele and a battery-powered keyboard, we came up with this riff that sounded like something from the Spy Hunter video game from 1983. It was a little weird cause we're a rock band no matter where we are. The song could have died there but we didn't give up and when we got a chance to play it loud, Seton (Daunt)’s guitar just took us straight to the desert.”

Mondo Lumina is due Nov. 13 on Rhyme & Reason Records. It’s available for pre-order here.

Mondo Lumina US album launch show

Fiction Plane playing the Wonder Bar

Fiction Plane's Asbury Park return is a long time coming.

The transcontinental power trio last visited the city by the sea way back in 2003, when they were touring behind their debut LP "Everything Will Never Be OK." Since then, there was the terrific 2007 single "Two Sisters" off the "Left Side of the Brain" album and then, as far as American fans could tell, a long silence.

According to singer and bassist Joe Sumner, the lack of new material “is not from so much lack of doing new music, it’s just that management and business stuff is not what we do. If there’s a book to be written about bad management, I think we could provide most of the source material, nearly all of it."

That changes this fall as "Mondo Lumina," the band's first American-released album in eight years, drops on Nov. 13 through Rhyme and Reason Records. To support the new album, the band is hitting the road, and they'll be at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park on Wednesday, Oct. 14.

"It feels fantastic to actually have label that really loves the record, we’ve got some people behind us that really believe in us and we obviously believe in the record a lot,” said Sumner.

Sumner — son of rock legend Sting — and his Fiction Plane bandmates partnered with producer and engineer Tom Syrowski for "Mondo Lumina," which expands the classic power trio template to the band's sound into a lush, pop-rock landscape.

"We (previously) defined ourselves by saying, ‘If we can play this in a room and it works with a three-piece band, then great,’ that was kind of the rule," Sumner said. "And with this record, we threw that rule away and just said, ‘We’re going to trust working with Tom and make it sound beautiful and just put whatever works on and make it nice,’ and I feel really good about that.”


WHEN: 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14

WHERE: The Wonder Bar, Fifth and Ocean Avenues, Asbury Park

Would you buy Fiction Plane live shows ?

A question to Fiction Plane fans.
What about your favorite band sharing their concerts on ?
This website allows fans to download shows recorded from the soundboard, for a few dollars only.
Their catalog already contains many bands, such as Bruce Springsteen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Van Halen. Snarky Puppy has just joined the list.

If you attended the show, you can live it again.
If not, you won't miss it.

Its' also a great way to promote a band as good on stage as Fiction Plane can be.
The shows could be available in various formats, from mp3 to flac, with different prices (from 10$ to 18$ for exemple).
I suggested this project to the band. I'd like to know if you fans, would be up to buy some shows.

Let's all tell FP to try ! :-)
