Failure Announce First New Album Since 1996 + Share ‘In-Studio’ Video
Failure have decided the time is right to strike again, announcing their first new album in nearly 20 years. Signed to Slash Records in 1992, the Los Angeles-based band released three albums over the next four years. Following the release of 'Fantastic Planet' in 1996, the band vanished.
Last year, the band (Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards and Kellii Scott) regrouped and played a few shows including stops at the Fun Fun Fun Fest and Riot Fest. That stint has led the band to get back in the studio to record their first album in close to 20 years, and they have taken to PledgeMusic to see the project through. "Obviously we are not the first band to do this sort of thing," explained guitarist/vocalist Ken Andrews on their Facebook page. "But I do think our fans are uniquely qualified to make this a very satisfying experience for all who participate.”
A video diary shows the band at work on the new, as yet unnamed album, which will see the light of day in a variety of formats including digital, CD, vinyl and USB drives. "To say that we are enjoying the process, would be a huge understatement," Andrews continues, "The band is truly in full creative swing with all pistons firing."
