The Fray posts "The Fighter," another track from the new album

Update (2/7/12): Isaac Slade and Joe King give a track-by-track breakdown of Scars & Stories, the Fray's new album.

Just before the holidays, the Fray offered another peek at its upcoming album, Scars & Stories, the followup to the act's eponymous sophomore release from 2009. While the record's first single, "Heartbeat," debuted this past October and has already charted, the Denver-based quartet recently posted "The Fighter," another cut from the new album, which was produced by Brendan O'Brien and is due out in less than a month.

As the band gears up for the release of Scars, it's playing a one-off in Ontario next week followed by a Super Bowl party in Indianapolis before embarking on a series of West Coast dates just shortly after the record drops. Page down to give a listen to the new track and get a glimpse of the band's life for the past few months while promoting the new record.
