Puppet Show is the much anticipated follow up to Fitness' critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP released on Wiener Records in the Summer of 2015. The band carries the torch forward with a slightly more refined and slightly more mature sound. Don't Panic Records & Distro is pressing a run of 300 7"s with 100 on violet vinyl and 200 on traditional black.
"Puppet Show is a great EP from a band poised to do a lot more in the future. They’re exciting, there’s a sense of urgency to their music that’s infectious, enough aggression to sell the venom in the lyrics. Each song is an experience, with busy leads that bounce off each other like billiard balls on break, full throated singalongs begging to be shouted back; songs that come out swinging, gloves in the air and a pep in their step, hungry for connection." Carson Winter, Dying Scene
“The band burns through a meaty, forward-charging rock melody with the help of two guitars shooting off bottle-rocket riffs and some seriously gnarly, melodic scream-singing that occasionally gives way to some uplifting vocal harmonies.” Leor Galil, Chicago Reader
“Energetic, boisterous and outright fun, Fitness is a band that doesn't exactly fit in with the rest of the city but still thrives by sticking to its guns... It's refreshing to see a band whose members have such a clear understanding of who they are and what they want to do.” Britt Julious, Chicago Tribune (Print; March, 2016)
