FURY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM FAILED ENTERTAINMENT

FURY announce their anxiously awaited sophomore album, Failed Entertainment, coming May 3 on Run For Cover Records — their first release since signing to the label last year. 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. The album’s lead single, “Angels Over Berlin“, “sums up what love and being a human means to me,” Stith explains. “The give and take, the power to let go of control, the faith and trust it takes to be vulnerable and open to another person’s view as well as open to the inevitable part of love which is grief. Not just romantic relationships, but all relationships; even the one you have with yourself.”

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 byColin 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 engineer Andrew 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. From the hammer-ons at the beginning of “Angels Over Berlin” to the tambourine on “Crazy Horses Run Free”.

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 TripSheer MagTurnstile and tours around the world in just a quick couple of years.

On Failed Entertainment, the band document the work, both personal and creative, undertaken since the release of Paramount, a period of time marked by as many difficulties as successes. Stith said, “I’ve asked myself ‘Why have I done this?’ and ‘Why do I continue to do this?’ more times in the last two years than the rest of my life combined.” Those eternal, existential questions form the thematic foundation of the new songs, which look past the superficial concerns about status and popularity that preoccupy so many musicians, focusing instead on life’s inevitable, inescapable problems and the ways in which they can be compounded by the banal realities of art-making – the isolation of being on tour, the pressure of being expected to somehow transform that universal angst into nice, catchy songs that provide simple lessons.

Though the idea that the human experience is something that can be understood and labeled is either right on the nose or too grandiose. But to Stith, the goal was to fit every last drop of humanity in between the grooves of the record, and that’s where the success and failure of this entertainment lies. “I’ll never be able to communicate every single thought and feeling,” says Stith “, a Failed Entertainment.”

FURY have confirmed SXSW and a short West Coast tour with Gorilla Biscuits next month. See below for a list of dates and for more details on Failed Entertainment or to pre-order, go here.
