Lyrically on 'Vacation', frontman Jeremy Stith references Harry Dean Stanton's discussion of "predestination and each humans' capabilities and their place in the world" Stith explains. "It's about how we will do what we do, and the outcomes will be what they will, and as much choice as we might have in the big scheme of things, the fact is just like earth, humans weren't here at one point, then we were, and soon we won't be anymore. Vacation is about grief and what comes along with it -- the denial, anger and the bargaining in situations where you come up short. We can only hope for acceptance that we are nothing, and Love is everything."
Failed Entertainment is FURY's take on the human experience, an attempt to describe every person's life and how it interacts with others through unmatched highs, desperate lows and mundane middles. As with their previous records, Failed Entertainment was recorded by Colin Knight and their own guitarist Madison Woodward at Paradise Records, in Anaheim, CA. This time, the band sought new surroundings and outside expertise, collaborating with engineerAndrew Oswald at Secret Bathroom Studios, mixing engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden) and Parquet Courts' Andrew Savage. The new batch of songs shows growth in all directions: the slow parts more brooding, the melodies catchier, the lyrics out even further on the limb.
Forming in 2014, FURY have established themselves quickly. They built on the melodic legacy of Orange County by way of heavy, rhythmic, start-stop guitars and frontman Jeremy Stith's wordy, referential and poetic lyrics. In 2015, FURY released a demo on D.C.'s Mosher Delight Records and the Kingdom Come EP on Boston's Triple B Records in the same calendar year. Then, in 2016, came their debut LP on Triple B Records, Paramount. The debut full-length was met with respect from the hardcore community and praise from outsider critics, earning them support slots on tours with the likes of Power Trip, Sheer Mag, Turnstile and tours around the world including two in the UK in just a quick couple of years.
FURY kick off a short US tour with Gorilla Biscuits this week. See below for a list of dates and for more details on Failed Entertainment or to pre-order, go here.
