The Downtown Fiction is excited to unveil the details for their second studio album and Fearless Records debut, Losers & Kings, set for release on June 17th.
“Dear friends — We’re honored to announce our brand-new album, Losers & Kings, will be available on June 17th. This record celebrates the chaotic beauty and loneliness of life, our dreams and journeys, confusion and euphoria. It’s about acceptance of yourself and others. Creating this music was a colorful and inspiring period and we can’t wait for everyone to finally hear it. We’ll be playing a string of shows with You Me At Six beginning April 21st at The Troubador in Los Angeles, which will surely be an awesome time. Thank you to our TDF family for their continued support – this was all for you. Thank you! With love, Cameron.” – Cameron Leahy, lead singer of The Downtown Fiction.

THE DOWNTOWN FICTION – Composed of Cameron Leahy (Lead Vocals), Wes Dimond (Guitar), David Pavluk (Bass), and Kyle Rodgers (Drums), The Downtown Fiction has risen with their unique brand of transcendent rock, staking their place in the pop-rock genre. That energy, a product of the band’s rock focus and sharp-edged lyrics, has defined The Downtown Fiction from its start in 2008. Since then, the band has played the Bamboozle Road Show, Glamour Kills Tour and Warped Tour, touring internationally with bands including All Time Low, The Ready Set, Mayday Parade, We the Kings and The Summer Set. The band has released three EPs and one full-length, 2011’s Let’s Be Animals.
That effort spawned the hit “I Just Wanna Run,” which sold over 350,000 copies and boasts a video that’s racked up more than 5.3 million views. With music as addictive as the lyrical themes are irresistible, the band is gearing up for the release of their second studio album Losers & Kings.
