The Noise & Ones To Watch Present Stand Atlantic & The Faim
September 18 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
About Stand Atlantic:
The only way to float, STAND ATLANTIC have learned, is to shed the secrets weighing them down. On SKINNY DIPPING, their debut full-length for Hopeless Records, the Sydney, Australia-based pop-rock trio strip down to their souls and hide nothing.
Due out October 26, 2018, the album follows Sidewinder, Stand Atlantic’s 2017 EP that launched singer/guitarist Bonnie Fraser, guitarist David Potter and drummer Jonno Panichi from Aussie locals to one of the most exciting bands in the underground.
The group’s blend of hard-charged rock and soaring pop melodies has earned them a home on international tours with the likes of New Found Glory, Neck Deep and State Champs – and critical accolades like a “Best International Breakthrough Band” nomination at the 2018 Heavy Music Awards and inclusion in Kerrang’s highly coveted Hottest Bands of 2018.
Now, Skinny Dipping is poised to build on that success and take them even further. The unfiltered honesty of the album’s 10 tracks showcases an emotional maturity beyond Stand Atlantic’s collective years, a keen sense of self-awareness and desire to be unconditionally authentic even when – and perhaps especially when – it breaks their hearts.
About The Faim:
THE FAIM came into existence as naturally as their music. The Australian group met while in high school in Perth, and the friends soon began penning their own songs, inspired by an array of musical influences. In the summer of 2016, THE FAIM (French for “the hunger”), noticed that producer John Feldmann had posted a call on Instagram for unsigned bands with touring experience. Although the group had no touring experience, they messaged him anyway, sending a long missive about their deep dedication to music. Feldmann wrote back a few weeks later and everything instantly went from zero to a hundred. The band began writing new songs and ended up with 30 half-written ideas to bring to the studio in Los Angeles in the spring of 2017. There they also enlisted the help of industry staples, including Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Mark Hoppus (blink-182), Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots) and Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds of Summer). The band has already accumulated over 8M+ total streams globally, and by the end of 2018, THE FAIM will have toured extensively, performing at festivals like Download, Slam Dunk, and Reading & Leeds, and sharing the stage with the likes of PVRIS, Against The Current, Sleeping With Sirens, Hands Like Houses and Lower Than Atlantis.
