Fight the Frequency is the fourth studio album by American pop punk band American Hi-Fi, released on August 17, 2010.[3] Work on the album began in May 2007, when the band first entered the studio to record a follow-up to Hearts on Parade. But due to label issues and band members Stacy Jones and Jamie Arentzen touring as part of Miley Cyrus' backing band, the record's planned release for May 2009 was delayed until 2010. This is the first album to feature original drummer Brian Nolan since their 2003 album The Art of Losing. The album has been produced by the band themselves through their self-made label "Hi-Fi Killers".[4]
