The hype for Title Fight‘s new album “Hyperview” has been steadily increasing, as the Kingston punk rockers signed with Anti- Records, received coverage from major outlets like Vogue and Pitchfork, released film-quality music videos for “Chlorine” and “Rose of Sharon” that revealed a more shoegazey sound, and announced a world tour that includes dates across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Before all that begins, though, they’ll be playing an intimate, stripped-down concert right in their hometown area. The Gallery of Sound (186 Mundy St., Wilkes-Barre) will host a free all-ages show on Tuesday, Feb. 3, the day “Hyperview” will be released. By pre-ordering the CD ($9.99) or vinyl ($17.99, black) through the Gallery of Sound in-store or online, attendees will receive a wristband for guaranteed entry to the show. Space is limited, so pre-orders are encouraged. Items will be available for pickup all day at the Mundy Street store.

For more information, visit the Gallery of Sound’s website or Facebook event page.
