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. Today they release their latest single, “Mono No Aware” which came to fruition after a conversation Stith had about Japanese Cherry Blossoms. He explains, “the idea Mono No Aware is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence, something that I’ve thought about every day since in some way or another and has helped guide me where I need to go.”
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. The band’s Run For Cover debut 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 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.
FURY have also announced a North American tour in June. Highlights include Chicago, Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, Toronto, Texas and a record release show in Santa Ana with Sheer Mag and Ceremony just before LA’s Sound & Fury Fest in July. Full dates listed below.
