While Failures’ Union have been kicking around for a bit longer than some of their contemporaries, they share many of the same traits. All three members grew up on the aforementioned wave of indie rock while maintaining strong ties to the do-it-yourself ethic and independent attitude engineered by the hardcore pioneers of the early 80’s. As a result, they stand in small company as one of the mellower bands currently traversing the underground highways. While the cleaner tones, fuzzed-out leads, and touches of piano and glockenspiel may alienate their label’s black shirt and Converse-sporting fans, listeners with more eclectic tastes will find themselves surprised by the eloquent melodies and nostalgic atmosphere that surrounds the songs found within.
Eventually they found a home at Paper & Plastick and put out the album “In What Way.” Shortly after it’s release Eric moved to second guitar and his child prodigy brother Blake took over the drumming position. They are currently recording a new full length with Jay Zubricky at GCR.
