Fixation’s unique blend of electronic elements, stadium rock, and post-metal, combined with their emotionally charged and thought-provoking lyrics creates a rollercoaster of melancholic aggression that leaves audiences wanting more.

Fixation have released their new single while they are on road supporting Devin Townsend on 32 tour dates all over Europe. To add to the already impressive year, they will also appear at festivals such as DownloadPrognosis, and Rock Imperium – and supporting Imminence in Norway and Denmark.

Fixation’s ability to seamlessly blend various musical elements and touch on relatable topics makes them a standout. Their music speaks to a broad audience, and they create a sound that resonates with a whole generation – not just fans of a specific genre. With a exciting year ahead and with rising popularity, there is no doubt that Fixation is claiming their positions as a rising force in the music scene.

Norwegian metalcore act Fixation first appeared in 2020 and quickly made a name for themselves with the release of their debut EP “Global Suicide”. The EP received high praise from media, and Metal Hammer Norway stated: “Sounds like a million dollars. There is so much talent here that it is almost touching, and what an amazing vocalist this band has in Jonas Hansen! It is simply a revelation. Wow!!”

Their next single “Stay Awake” was released in 2021 and it managed to capture the attention of notable international media outlets such as Metal Hammer (DE), Kerrang! Magazine (UK), Kaaoszine (FI) and BBC (UK).

In 2022, they continued to build their reputation with the release of “More Alive” and “Claustrophobic” and performances at notable festivals like Tons of Rock (NO) The Great Escape (UK), Summer Breeze (DE), as well as tour dates with well-established acts like Leprous, Smash Into Pieces and Djerv, continuing to receive praise from media.
