Finnish six-piece rock outfit Blind Channel have revealed the video for their new single, Don’t Fix Me








Finnish post-hardcore, violent pop collective BLIND CHANNEL have released the video for their new single, DON’T FIX ME, taken from their forthcoming album LIFESTYLES OF THE SICK & DANGEROUS, out on 8 July via Century Media Records. The album is available to pre-order here

Don’t Fix Me is a huge rock anthem where mighty riffs and pummelling drums meet synths, harmonies, and a frenzied rap from vocalist Niko Moilanen. The accompanying video captures the band on the road during their recent tour across the US and Europe.

Regarding the single, BLIND CHANNEL say, “Don’t Fix Me continues the themes of brokenness that feature on the upcoming album. This time, however, we decided to be empowering and uplifting and wrote something people will scream while having the craziest time of their lives. This song is the soundtrack for the wildest parties and the cure for the following day’s hangover.”



Don’t Fix Me is the latest song to be taken from the band’s fourth album, which also features the previously released award-winning and multi-million streamed singles ‘Bad Idea’, ‘Dark Side’, ‘Balboa’ and ‘We Are No Saints’

BLIND CHANNEL were the most successful artist at the recent Finnish Grammy Awards where they received six awards including two for Dark Side (Song Of The Year and Most Streamed Song) and were also awarded Band Of The Year, Artist Of The Year (by public vote), Rock Band Of The Year and the Export Award – the latter testament to their rapidly rising international profile having spent almost the entirety of this year on the road throughout the US, the UK and Europe.

The band has spent 2022 carving an unstoppable path with their astounding live shows and new music. Following a US run with From Ashes To New earlier this year, they are now touring with Electric Callboy across Europe and have been announced for a number of high-profile festivals in their homeland this summer before returning to the UK in September for a headline tour.

“Rohkea rokan syö” or, to loosely translate this Finnish saying, “fortune favours the brave”, the band have focussed intently on their aim to take their infectiously ferocious nu-metal outside of Finland’s linguistic restrictions and this bravery is engrained within.

Furiously fighting their way into the worldwide mainstream, the six-piece have always embraced their influences, from nu-metal iconoclasts to pop and hip-hop behemoths. That’s the key to their draw; they’re only interested in staying true to themselves while studiously searching for the keys to unlock the doors of success.

BLIND CHANNEL knew that they had something to process into their music. Not only the “modern-day misery” plaguing the world, as singer Joel puts it, but also proving that they could deliver more than the crowd-pleasing anthem of Dark Side. Lifestyles Of The Sick & Dangerous is a lashing, brutal, bravado, sincere and swagger-filled depiction of their lives, backed by their trademark and unforgiving “violent pop music”. As well as a nodding homage to the Good Charlotte track Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous, it’s – most importantly – a statement of intent: that this is only the beginning.
