We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Faking’s new song “You Got Bored” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Goddamn Cowards, which is being released on May 27th through Reptilian Records.
Guitarist/vocalist Jeff Bowne comments: “The prevailing lyrical theme in our songs is shitty people doing shitty things. I don’t really like writing ‘I this’ or ‘I that’ type of lyrics. I’d rather create characters and a small chunk of plot and try to express it in as little words as possible.”
Faking is a three piece noise-rock outfit from Philadelphia. Featuring former members of the now legendary Midiron Blast Shaft and Gunna Vahm, Faking is Jeff Bowne (guitar/vocals), Phil Schorn (drums) and Mark Diehl (bass). Their music blends the aggressive direct-drive chokehold of American hardcore, the angular, insistent rhythms of Shellac and a general sense of unease.
