Flight Club is a 5 piece rock band hailing from Richmond, Virginia that wears their influences on their sleeve. In the best way possible, the band combines all of their favorite influences — bands like Foo Fighters, The Story So Far, Every Time I Die — and do it seemingly effortlessly. The end result is a ferocious rock and roll band that’s gritty, loud, and catchy.
They’re not afraid to get loud and make dirty sounding rock songs — not lyrically, but musically. Their soulful and full of heart sound comes across as passionate, raw, and honest. Flight Club is now gearing up to release their new EP, Recreational Love, on November 15th via Open Your Ears Records, showing off all of their growth and talents as a band.
Substream is excited to be teaming up with the band to debut their brand new single, “Discount Drugs,” which was produced by Alan Day of Four Year Strong and mixed/mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater. Describing the song, Flight Club said “We wanted a song to sound like [how] Tarantino films make us feel.” Mission accomplished. The song is a straight-forward rock song, lead by lo-fi guitars and soaring vocals, making it one you need to listen to if you like aggressive rock and roll.
“‘Discount Drugs’ was actually the last song we wrote for the release. After disagreeing which song we’d track from the almost 30 demos we had, we decided to try to write a new song altogether,” Flight Club tells Substream. “Playing with some lofi guitar tones and electric piano, ‘Discount Drugs’ was the resulting track and we all loved it.”
