Fury – Failed Entertainment LP (Purple


SKU: SKU200001370 Category: Tag:


Forming in 2014, Fury established themselves quickly, releasing both a demo on Washington, D.C.s Mosher Delight Records and the Kingdom Comeinch EP on Bostons Triple B Records in the same calendar year. They built on the melodic legacy of Orange County by way of heavy, rhythmic, start-stop guitars and Stiths wordy and referential lyrics. Then, in 2016, came their debut LP on Triple B Records, Paramount,inch which was met with respect from the hardcore community and praise from outsider critics. Now, two New Years Eves later, Fury releases Failed Entertainment,inch their sophomore LP and debut with Boston-based Run For Cover Records. As with their previous records, Failed Entertainmentinch was recorded by Colin Knight and their own guitarist Madison Woodward at Paradise Records, in Anaheim. This time, though, the band also sought new surroundings and outside expertise, collaborating with engineer Andrew Oswald at Secret Bathroom Studios, as well as mixing engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Seaweed). 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 Berlininch to the tambourine on Crazy Horses Run Free Failed Entertainmentinch documents the work, both personal and creative, undertaken since the release of Paramount,inch a period of time marked by as many difficulties as successes. Stith said, Ive 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.inch 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 lifes 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. What finally emerges is nothing less than Furys take on the human experience, an attempt to describe every persons life and how it interacts with others through unmatched highs, desperate lows, and mundane middles. 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 thats where the success and failure of this entertainment lies. Ill never be able to communicate every single thought and feeling,inch says Stith , a Failed Entertainment.inch Listen to the record https://furyhc.bandcamp.com/album/failed-entertainment
