Faith In Violence Q&A

Your name:  

Where are you from?  
Leeds, UK.

Name of band:
Faith In Violence.

Who else is in your band?
My brother Danny (Lead Vox/Bass), and Mark (Guitar). I play drums.

How would you describe yourselves?
Modern rock. We're aiming for a unique take on the three-piece rock band. Our music is straight down the middle - mainstream enough to appeal to mass audiences, but with enough balls to appeal to those who are into their heavier stuff. Big riffs, catchy hooks.

Who are your main influences musically?
So many, because we all listen to very different things. Major influences include Theory Of A Deadman, Nickelback, and Bullet For My Valentine.

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Absolute maximum exposure and success in the industry. We're aiming for the very highest level. The three of us share a desire, a desperation in fact, to make a career out of what we love to do. And that is make music which we love to play, and hopefully that people love to hear.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Playing the O2 Academy in Leeds early this year, to a 1000 strong crowd, many of them wearing Faith In Violence t-shirts. What an experience that was. That's the feeling we're chasing.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
You know what? We love every second of being in this band and everything that comes along with it. Sometimes things don't go your way, people and circumstances get in the way and things can get frustrating to say the least. But the tough times are just viewed as shared experience. The only things we might want to forget are arguments during the writing process!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Our latest single, 'Hell For You', which is available for free download right now on Reverb Nation. The track is a good representation of our style, how we write songs and what we sound like.

Where can we listen to it?
You can check out both of our current singles at that link.

Where can we find out more about your music?
You can check us out on Facebook & Twitter for updates, show dates, pics and videos.  We're also on Youtube.
Check out
Our Twitter is @FaithInViolence and there's also our fan page @FIVArmy where you can see all sorts of fan art, merch and other cool stuff thanks to some of our most loyal fans!

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
Yeah, come check us out at a show! We're playing across the UK all year and we'd love to see you all there! Our show is a little different and worth seeing, and we'll be playing some new songs as we're constantly writing at the moment. We're also back in the studio in April so there'll be some new music released shortly after. Also keep your eyes peeled for a video in the near future! And many thanks for having us in your Q&A!
