You know a band is worth checking out when RZA from Wu-Tang Clan decides to produce their upcoming EP. That band this time is LA's FAULKNER. The four-piece pop rockers create a variety of addicting tracks that pull from pop and rock, as well as hip-hop and dance. Their music is insanely hard to ignore—especially if you're a sports fan. The band's single "NY Anthem" was the Yankees home song last year, and tonight they'll be performing at the SF 49ers Opening Game at Levi's Stadium.
Thanks to the sports venue in San Francisco, some of the industry's coolest emerging artists are invited to perform about an hour and 45 minutes before kickoff at every 49ers home game. It's called the #FaithfulMile Concert Series which takes place on the Pepsi Stage, located just inside the west entry gates and is free if you've got tickets to check out some pigskin. Other artists who have performed for the series include Geographer, Iration, and The Stone Foxes.
If you were near the "Halo Me" group's hometown last night, you might have caught them crushing it over at The Grove in Anaheim, and we've got an exclusive diary from the evening. The best part? It's just a taste of their two-part tour diary, which will include tonight's NFL show (sweet). Check out the first part below, then Track FAULKNER to see when they're coming to play a show in your town.
Every piece of gear has it's own little story its own energy. It's important to tap into that and use it for the performance.
The quiet before the storm is always a magical moment. Trying to find that center within you, the balance, the strength and energy no matter what and hit the stage as hard as you can to put on a great show for the fans. We love what we do.
The best rhythm section out there. Enough said.
We found this in a Willy Wonka chocolate bar.
The lonely times of sound checking but one of the most important bonding times. Trying new sounds, changing song parts and even writing new material on the fly.
There is no better feeling on stage than playing with a great drummer. You can always tell that when band members turn to the drummer for cues and to rock out with him. Purple haze anyone?
