Anti- Records, a sister label of Epitaph Records, announced today that they have signed Kingston’s Title Fight.

The label’s roster includes Tom Waits, The Antlers, Neko Case, Dr. Dog, Glen Hansard, and Wilco, according to a press release. The band was previously signed to SideOneDummy Records.

“Our ability to choose our own path regardless of current or past status quos is a defining characteristic of Title Fight. We are humbled to be a part of the Anti- roster, where we feel these qualities will be strengthened and supported,” the band stated in the release.

Title Fight are currently in the studio recording a new LP with producer Will Yip, who they worked with on their last full-length record, 2012’s “Floral Green.” They announced signing to Anti- on Facebook by changing their profile and cover photos (one is seen above) and releasing this short video on YouTube and Instagram:

The local punk rockers will play the This Is Hardcore Festival in Philadelphia this Saturday, July 26 and Riot Fest in Toronto and Chicago in September.
