Fight Or Flight @ The Altar Bar

Wednesday August 7th 2013 Fight Or Flight hit The Altar Bar with tour mates Mindset Evolution on their first US tour supporting the release of their first album ” A Life By Design”. Fight or Flight is made up Dan Donegan (guitar) Mike Wengren (drums) both formerly of Disturbed, and Dan Chandler (vocals) from Evans Blue. After Disturbed announced in 2012 they would be taking a break, it left everyone wondering what will the band members do now? After being on stage for so long and constantly touring and recording one would think it would be pretty hard to just stop.  That was exactly the case with Dan Donegan. Boredom set in and he starting to miss recording and touring so he reached out to Evans Blue member Dan Chandler. Having no plan with the direction of a band they just sat down and starting writing and things just clicked. Their first single “First of The Last” was an instant success and really set the tone for things to come for this group. Their performance was energy packed and had something special about it. Seeing groups being formed from other successful bands really adds something different to live performances. It could be just how everything just seems so natural to everyone no matter what style or genre they came from before. Fight Or Flight surprised everyone when they busted out a cover Sober by Tool and later in the set the classic “Man In The Box” by Alice In Chains. They also mixed it up a bit by adding some acoustic songs throughout which was pretty different. Overall the whole night was solid with amazing sets from each band.
