Last night, at Harlows in midtown Sacramento, Fair Struggle launched their CD/album: Limerence, It's been worth waiting for: the opening song is the blistering single, Say My Name, and it continues with nine more songs, the sort of gritty, hard, American rock that is evocative of road trips and roadhouses where the band plays in a cage to be safe from the barfights.

So what, exactly, is "Limerence"? According to dictionary.com, it's a noun used in the realm of psychology, meaning "a state of mind resulting from romantic attraction, characterized by feelings of euphoria, the desire to have one's feelings reciprocated, etc." The title track of the album is moody, heavy, interesting. Take a listen.
Vince Keegan, vocals, Fair Struggle
After seeing Fair Struggle in several versions--different vocalists--I think we can safely say that today's Fair Struggle has found the magic with Vince Keegan on vocals. Great fit.
Fair Struggle are Vince Keegan (vocals), Wayne Burkett (guitar), Ivan Parra (lead guitar), Scott Garrett (drums) and Miles Daniels (bass). Find more info on the Fair Struggle website, or on their Facebook.
