The Combat Sports
album title came about after guitarist Freddie Cowan and vocalist Justin Young had a big fight in the studio. Cowan explained to HMV.com
"It's a nod to internal battles, how you manage relationships. We'd lost Pete (Robertson, drums), that threw everything into turmoil, we didn't know what the future was if the band going to survive. But we stuck it out and turned the corner. To me, it's an album about resilience, conquering what life throws at you."
