‘Hubris’ is the second of a two-song cycle following the band’s brilliant seven-minute epic ‘Empath’. Watch the video for ‘Empath’ below – and stay tuned on news of the ‘Hubris’ video shortly.
Fayne, from Montreal, deliver heavy-driven drums, crushing guitar riffs and bass lines, crowned with powerful clean and screaming vocals. Elements of The Contortionist, Car Bomb, and Misery Signals all crash and collide in glorious splendour, heard to full effect on ‘Empath’.
Fayne’s progressive metalcore experience causes physical and emotional responses you never knew existed. Introspection, the process of understanding and the hunt to discover what’s behind the veil of everyday life, are some of Fayne’s state-altering musical themes.
The band began to make waves in the mid -00s, performing alongside Alexisonfire, Underoath, and Hopesfall. After pursuing other musical interests, the band reunited with 2014’s The Queen Of Kings, leading to a self-booked 9-day tour through Quebec and Ontario, as well as supporting slots for The Contortionist and Vanna.
Fayne then recruited Justin Furtado (formerly of Red Skies and Feels Like Home) on vocals, before releasing their debut LP Journals in 2017. Released in 2018, the band’s single ‘Grimspeak’ saw success with strong streaming figures, holding the #4 spot on CJLO’s LOUD! Chart, and placing them at #67 on CJLO’s Best Metal Band of 2019 list.
