Fighting Instinct are a three-piece American rock band hailing from North Carolina. They consist of T.J. Harris (Vocals, guitar), Dallas Farmer (drums) and Jason Weekly. The band combines Southern-falvoured, soulful rock with intricate melodies, all with a modern rock edge. The band say their influences comes from classic rockers Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix; Southern rockers such as Lynyrd Skynyrd; and modern bands like Soundgarden and Foo Fighters. The band scored a publishing deal with EMI and released their debut album - the self-titled 'Fighting Instinct' - in early 2006.
