“It’s about the greed that exists within corporations, specifically venture capitalists, and it has deep personal meaning,” says Bossfight guitarist David Settimi of the band’s new single “Green.” Settimi spent nearly 20 years working for Guitar Center, first as a front line accessory salesperson before rising to vice president of sales; then the company was bought out in 2007 by Bain Capital for 1.9 billion.
Bossfight—Daze of Gray
There’s something to be said for gathering up your best songs, going into a studio and capturing them well. That’s what Bossfight has done on Daze of Gray, an 11-track collection of melodic punk rock that’s immaculately recorded. (P.O.D.’s Marcos Curiel produced it, by the way.) The guitars chug, the drums rat-tat-tat and the melodies consistently stand apart from the din. Listening to Bossfight is like going a few rounds in the pit, just with fewer bruises the next morning.
