About Fighting The Influence

Fall River, MA

Fighting the Influence is a name that was inevitable for the four members that make up the rock band out of Fall River, Massachusetts. The name comes from the bands Christian beliefs and their goals to reach a hopeless world with the truth found in their music. The band consists of Josh Pereira (vocals/guitar), Sandro Braga (drums), Pedro Braga (vocals/keys), and Andrew Cabral (bass). As a band, FTI has been playing together for over two years, putting hard work and dedication into writing songs and playing shows. Among their many accomplishments, the band released their self titled EP in 2008, along with a music video (which has generated over 11,000 hits on YouTube). Fighting the Influence has been featured on WBRU’s Home “BRU’d” radio show, as well as interviews on college radio stations all over MA and RI.

Like a driving force, FTI is becoming increasingly popular on the local scene, drawing generous crowds to popular locations around the area, including Jerky’s, The Living Room, and Lupos, as well as outside of New England. The band has toured MA, RI, NH, CT, NJ, NY, PA, and are planning to go out even farther in the upcoming months, expanding their fan base throughout the East Coast.

What makes Fighting the Influence so unique is the passion felt in every song. When this young band goes up on stage you can expect them to give their best performance. The audience is captivated and moved by each song, thriving for more of the energy and the signature sound that has kept their attention throughout the night. FTI not only entertains with their music, they use it to relate to people on a deeper level. Songs such as "Zombies" and "Truth behind a Smile" deal with the questions and struggles that many people face in their lives on a daily basis, and spark hope for a better tomorrow.

In essence, Fighting the Influence is a band with a bright future. They have come so far and will continue to do what it takes to reach every person with their music...So here's your chance, will you join them in Fighting the Influence?
