Mesa, AZ — A high-rising band from down under, The Faim, is a prime example of confidence, enthusiasm, and love of the art of music and performance. Supporting headliner Andy Black on his “The Ghost Of North America” tour, alongside fellow opener KULICK, they treated fans to a performance far beyond even the most optimistic of fans’ expectations.

A young crowd, anxious and eager to see their music idols, lined the sidewalk into the alleyway entrance of The Nile Theater. Colored hair, ripped jeans, leather jackets, name-brand shoes, and fancy accessories dotted the scene, much like an amalgam of hipster and classic punk, creating a unique fashion style that may eventually define this generation, like big hair and shoulder pads defined the 80’s. This fusion of fashion is likely in part a byproduct of the union of fans of a variety of artists that were involved in this night and everything leading up to it.

Two days prior to the show, Black Veil Brides’ frontman Andy Biersack released The Ghost of Ohio — the sophomore album from his solo music project under the moniker Andy Black. A concept record, The Ghost of Ohio is meant to serve as the soundtrack for his comic book by the same name, according to Alternative Press. Andy Black and The Faim share megaproducer John Feldman (lead singer of Goldfinger), who has a massive arsenal of rock and pop artist veterans that he’s worked with, and has been able to mix them into a cocktail of contribution to recordings for these two acts. By bringing top music industry talent together, Feldman is taking the best parts of early 2000s rock and infusing it into a new generation of sound that will richly benefit from their prowess and the vitality of these artists’ spirits.

Jacob Kulick, also known as KULICK, came out to a screaming crowd of fans that did not know what they were in for. KULICK set the bar high for what was about to follow: clear vocals and clean-sounding instruments, akin to a Bad Religion show, accompanied by contagious energy, great stage presence, and command of the crowd — a polished performance and band dynamic that makes you want to see them again. KULICK performed 8 songs: “Crawling”, “Hole in My Head”, “City”, “Hydroplane”, “Scatterbrain”, “Colors”, and “Ghost”; closing his set with humor and natural crowd engagement. This was only his second time touring, but with a performance like this, it would appear that many more will follow and he will continue to enrich audiences with his energy and sound.

The Faim’s explosive energy became evident within a few seconds of their opening song, “Saints Of The Sinners”. With the never-ending energy and stage presence you’d normally see from a ska band or Mick Jagger, The Faim dominated the stage and slowly began to command a crowd that once again did not know what hit them. They played “My Heart Needs to Breathe”, as if they have been performing for many years.

Sam Tye (guitar) and Stephen Beerkens (bass, keyboard) played on each other’s moves, and Raven engaged each member, including drummer and percussionist Linden Marissen, like Bruce Dickinson does with Nicko McBrain. Marissen himself exudes a type of energy and control of the drums that demonstrates his dedication to his craft; breaking a drumstick mid-song, and grabbing a new one so quickly that most people did not even notice. A fan later came to the merchandise table to have the broken stick autographed, which Marissen gratefully obliged.

The third song was a special gift to the audience: the still unreleased song “Beautiful Drama”. Lead singer Josh Raven’s enthusiasm was evident, not merely singing the words, but performing the song from his heart and leaving it all on the stage, like this was his own Live Aid performance.

Setlist:

“Saints Of The Sinners”
“My Heart Needs To Breathe”
“Beautiful Drama” (Unreleased)
“When It Comes”
“Infamous”
“Midland Line”
“Fire”
“A Million Stars”
“I Can Feel You”
“Make Believe”
“Summer Is A Curse”
“Amelie”

This wasn’t just a concert, it was a musical experience, as made evident once Raven decided to join the crowd while continuing to sing, engaging everyone on the floor either by high fives, hugs, or just direct eye contact. The energy never ceased or diminished, even as he helped a crowd surfer back to safety without breaking performance. He made sure to thank the crowd for making them all feel so welcomed on their first visit to this city, and the crowd went crazy. Raven’s closing words were, “look out for yourself, look out for each other, and have a wonderful evening!

When the lights went down once again, Andy Black began to sing to a sea of screaming fans that, to his obvious and evident delight, could sing along every word of each song he played. It was a night of endless energy and flawless performances that lifted the caliber of the show above and beyond.

Rapidly rising pop-rock group The Faim is currently supporting Black Veil Brides’ frontman, Andy Black, on his solo headline run through North America. They recently shared a brand new song,Amelie,” in anticipation of their forthcoming debut album, which is due in September. On The Faim’s first ever headline tour of Europe and Australia earlier this year, the majority of shows sold out completely or were upgraded due to popular demand. 

Burning Hot Events reviewed The Faim’s concert at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix last December, and to say that we were impressed is an understatement. We popped into their performance in Seattle last Tuesday (photos below), and the band seemed to exude even higher energy and cohesive connection with the crowd than before — promising a killer experience at The Nile Theater in Mesa next Sunday!

Los Angeles, CA – Emerging Australian pop-rock quartet, The Faim, is excited to kick off 2019 with their new single, “Fire.” Forbes premieres the track today HERE, describing it as, “a driving, indie-pop earworm…with potential to take hold of an arena-sized crowd.” Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Linus (blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, Palaye Royale), the song is saturated with addictive pop-beats and dazzling guitar riffs, with the spotlight on frontman Josh Raven’s soaring vocals. Overall, “Fire” captures the band’s infectious, magnetic sound that has been building momentum and resonating with fans across the globe.

According to Josh, “The concept behind ‘Fire’ is about how dedicating yourself to achieve your dream can affect your relationships with those closest to you, be it family, friends, or loved ones. When you fully believe in something that you’re working towards, it can become an addiction. You become so focused on what you plan to achieve that you lose sight of what’s happening around you. This is what ‘fire’ refers to in the song: that burning passion to create, express ourselves, and grow as musicians that we can’t put out even if we tried.”

After a short holiday break following the group’s inaugural U.S. tour last year, The Faim wasted no time getting back on the road. The four-piece recently wrapped the Australian leg of their first ever headline run, resulting in sold-out shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and their hometown of Perth. Their European headline trek also commenced last week, with dates in London, Southampton, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Cologne, and Hamburg already completely selling out. A full routing is included below, with tickets available HERE.

Due for a commercial breakthrough” – Idolator

The Faim unveiled their debut EP, Summer Is a Curse, last year (Sept. via BMG), along with four stellar singles, “Saints of the Sinners,” “Midland Line,” “Summer Is a Curse,” and “A Million Stars.” Since then, the outfit has seen massive growth across their digital platforms, racking up over 16 million total global streams and clocking over 11 million on “SIAC.” They’ve also toured exhaustively worldwide, supporting PVRIS, Sleeping With Sirens, Against The Current, Lower Than Atlantis, The Dangerous Summer, Hands Like Houses, and PVMNTS, and playing European festival staples including Reading & Leeds, Slam Dunk, and more.

The Faim’s debut marked the first chapter in what is bound to be a grand story of one of alternative rock’s greatest bands.” – Live Nation’s Ones To Watch

The Perth natives originally got their start with renowned producer, John Feldmann, who was so impressed with their early demos that he invited them out to Los Angeles to record with him. There they enlisted the help of several notable co-writers, including Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, Mark Hoppus of blink-182, Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots, and Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer. They also recently collaborated with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, Dave Bassett (Vance Joy, Bishop Briggs), and Neal Avron (Linkin Park, Weezer).

There’s something so honest, so earnest about The Faim’s sound, you can’t help but feel it.” – idobi

The Faim is currently working on their debut album, which is slated for release later this year. Stay tuned for more news to come!

PHOENIX — Hailing from Perth, Australia, The Faim dropped into Crescent Ballroom on headliner Hands Like Houses’ “U.S. Tour 2018”. With a whopping 5-band line-up (including Arlington, The Faim, Devour the Day, Emarosa, and Hands Like Houses), Phoenix was treated to an explosive set of just 30 minutes, which left the crowd hungry for more! On the dimly-lit stage, the band brought an unanticipated level of energy and a performance undoubtably worthy of headlining at an even bigger venue.
 

Burning Hot Events has had The Faim on our radar since they dropped their debut single and total earworm “Saints Of The Sinners” in February of this year. We had the pleasure of interviewing lead vocalist Josh Raven in March: INTERVIEW: Next Big Aussie Band The Faim Talks About Their Rapid Rise & Inspiring Musical Journey

With a big sound and big backing, it was entirely evident that The Faim will be going far, and doing it fast. At the time of our interview, it was still unknown when the band would grace Arizona with their presence. Since then, The Faim has released multiple songs and music videos, their Summer is a Curse EP (released September 7th), toured the states, and are embarking on a world tour in 2019. Current tour dates can be found on their website.

Following the performance, I met with Raven to praise him for his unreal, 200% stage presence, to which he humbly and graciously replied that he’s just happy to be doing what he loves.

Los Angeles, CA – Today, The Faim have teamed up with Ones To Watch to premiere the official video for their latest single, “A Million Stars.” Watch it exclusively HERE. The video was filmed in Berlin, Germany and follows frontman Josh Raven as he reminisces over a past love interest. “A Million Stars” also appears on the band’s debut EP, Summer Is a Curse, which serves as a prelude to their hotly-anticipated first full-length album, slated for release in 2019.

More The Faim Videos:

“ ‘A Million Stars’ isn’t only about appreciating the person you’re with or the location you’re in, it’s about being free of the world’s distractions and valuing the little details that make a memory unique. I believe we’re defined by our reactions to these moments,” says Josh. “This video represents the double-edged sword of sharing perfect memories, but being thrust into a situation where cherishing them might not ever be possible. It’s a reality anyone faces when you’re away from loved ones, friends or even a familiar place.”

Confirmed to Support HANDS LIKE HOUSES on Fall U.S. Tour

In other news, The Faim is excited to announce their first ever U.S. tour, supporting fellow Aussie natives, Hands Like Houses, in November and December.

The trek begins and ends in California, kicking off in San Francisco on Saturday, November 10th and wrapping in Los Angeles on Sunday, December 9th.

Since the release of their new EP, The Faim have clocked an impressive 8+ million total global streams, as well as over 5.5 million globally on their smash single, “Summer Is a Curse.” The band’s music has also landed on notable Spotify playlists including New Music Friday, Rock This, The New Alt, Top of the Morning, The Scene, and New Noise.

Los Angeles, CA – Today, The Faim have partnered with Billboard to premiere the official video for “Summer Is A Curse,” the third single from their forthcoming debut album. Watch it exclusively HERE.

The highly-anticipated new video follows frontman Josh Raven and his love interest on the run from the law, eventually escaping before it all goes up in flames. It also showcases the band delivering a stellar live performance with the Welsh countryside as a fitting backdrop.

The song was co-written with Ashton Irwin of 5 Seconds of Summer, and according to Josh, “ ‘Summer is a Curse’ is a reflection of our journey as a band. Being placed out of Australia and in LA for the first time as a band, we got thrown into this whole new world of exciting experiences and pressures. As frightening as it was, and no matter our feelings at home, it became this tunnel vision of realizing that we had this chance to make our dreams a reality. Our music video reflecting that exact same feeling of freedom was so important for us.”

Fans can stream and purchase “Summer Is A Curse” HERE.
