FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review

FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review

FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review would have to start with a major thank you to our friends and families for their support in 2016.    That’s everybody involved who help make it happen for Faith in the Fallen on stage and off.  Of course, a thank you to our wives (or soon to be…??) and children for their unwavering support.  And our pre-band friends who love to support livFITF 2016 Annual Rocking Review,, Faith in the Fallen, Group Rocke rock music as well as supporting their homies on stage.  And all of the many new friends we got to know at shows and online this year.     Also a big thank you to the venues and promoters who have welcomed FITF to their stage in 2016.    And it goes without saying, the bands we’ve had the pleasure to rock with.    

As we enter 2017, we found it heartening to document the FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review in order to remind ourselves of the many cool accomplishments this past year.    

So let’s start with…the bands and the shows:

Find links below to the groups, check them out and show them some support in 2017.   

Since forming our current line up about 4+ years ago we’ve tried to perform at least once a month.  So despite a couple of haywire cancellations in 2016, we just about made it there.    Be on the lookout for more performances in 2017 at a club near you!   

What else happened in 2016?…  

…Recording, mixing, and mastering the Gravity EP.   Although, we had recorded a couple of demo eps in home and professional studios in the past, we were FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review, Faith in the Fallen Gravitynever fully satisfied with the final product.  Our goal entering the studio in 2016 was to partner with a studio / producer who would be able to put themselves in the bands shoes and become a partner in the process.  We got that and more by connecting with Chuck Macak at Electrowerks Studio.     And with that we spent most of the winter and spring working on the EP.    We finished the mixing and mastering in June and began hustling to finish our cover art and CD production. 

Pick it up at the next show or Gravity is available on all of your favorite online music stores

New Logo anyone?FITF 2016 Rocking Annual Review, Logo, Faith in the Fallen

We worked with Rob Salem–rocker and rock advocate–among other things, from Indiana.    Thanks to his design work, FITF has a new band logo and type set that allowed us to put the finishing touches on the Gravity EP.

Rock for Brandon…well…ROCKED!FITF 2016 Annual Rocking Review, Scott Guzik, Faith in the Fallen

Late to the party, but what a great time Rock for Brandon was on December 3rd.  Really powerful night featuring some great music for a great cause.  We want to thank Patti Vinezeano w/ Bad Ass Entertainment and the Hale family for including us in the event.  Thanks to the Brauerhouse Lombard for hosting.   Also thanks to Terry Murphy who was on hand taking high quality shots of all of the bands live.    

FITF aside from members making personal donations during the evening donated 50% of its merch sales to the cause, which ultimately ended up being an extra $50.

Rock For Brandon December 3

Rock for Brandon December 3 at Brauerhouse Lombard

Rock for Brandon December 3, FITF, Faith in the Fallen

Rock for Brandon December 3 is a chance for you to do something good.   I think we can all agree that as the holidays approach, besides being a time to celebrate with family and friends, it’s a reminder of our responsibility to give back to others in their time of need.    When FITF joins an incredible lineup of bands December 3rd you’ll have the opportunity to put that responsibility into action.  The event will be raising money for the Hale family–valuable support that they need while Brandon Hale battles brain cancer.    Money raised will go a long way towards helping the family deal with the many medical expenses associated with their fight.  

Faith in the Fallen are honored to be a part of this event and are joined by some of the area’s top local and national rock talent, including:

The event is sponsored by Bad Ass Entertainment and Patti Vinezeano and Brauerhouse Lombard. 

Door tickets are only $10 and there will be raffles and other prize opportunities at the event.  Music starts at 9 pm and goes all night.    Rock for Brandon December 3 is an event you will not want to miss. 

Come out and help us make this night a success for the Hale family.    If you can’t make it, you can donate to the cause through this GoFundMe link.   Please donate to it and share it with your friends. 

For up to date information and full event details visit the Facebook event!

See you there!

Addressing November 5th Cancellation

We apologize again to our friends and fans for having to cancel our show on November 5th w/ Valora, The Nearly Deads, and Deadman’s Hand.   There’s nothing to say here except that the show was cancelled at 12 pm the day of because Chicago Star Bar in Chicago Ridge had double booked that evening and we were outright cancelled.  

We were extremely disappointed that Chicago Star Bar would do that to us and the rest of the bill at the last minute especially after playing there on so many occassions.   Sorry Star Bar–that was not cool.
