Like many young outfits, Stourbridge’s Fans of Faye has been through many name changes, covering the not-so-sublime to the entirely ridiculous. But in the winter of 2004, a dear friend and inspiration to the band, Faye, tragically lost her life in a car crash. She was the catalyst for their youthful passion for writing and performing their own music, so her premature death sealed the band’s moniker as a lasting testimony.
Shunning the usual hasty rush to play on the national scene, FoF instead focussed on the Midlands gig circuit. This local live focus has been rewarded with a strong and loyal fan-base, who in return have seen them support the likes of Versa Emerge, Francesqa, Not Advised/Natives and The Casting Out (ex-Boy Sets Fire).
Their impressive live pedigree has now been channelled into a debut album, Designed To Be, due for release in autumn 2012. It will firmly cement the band’s growing reputation as an exciting and hugely promising new act, energetically supported by an extensive tour of the UK.
The first single to be taken from the debut will be released on September 3rd, 2012 entitled ‘Paint The Sun’. The accompanying video is to be produced by the brilliant Wide Awake Films.
