A little over three years since our interview for IDIOTEQ, FAIM are back with new singles, “Uninhabitable”, and “Hide Behind Your Badge”, a re-recorded version of their contribution to Wide Eyed Noise’s “Ending Silence” benefit for the Trevor Project, released back in 2017. Remaining ferocious until the last drop, FAIM are doing what they do better than ever. Do yourself a favour and check out their new sharp offering below!
FAIM will be releasing a new full length on Safe Inside Records in the coming months and will be touring Europe sometime next year for the release of this new album. Stay tuned for more details on that.
For Denver’s FAIM, hardcore is the spark that lights the way to bigger things in this life – personal catharsis, critique and political engagement.
To that end, FAIM seeks to bring those ideas to the forefront of their music with lyrical content focusing on political apathy, abusers with the hardcore scene, class anxiety, and the ever-present daily injustice.
Their brand of fast, aggressive hardcore is a vessel for hope and change set against the background of youthful angst. Since starting in late 2016, FAIM has worked tirelessly to dig itself into the Denver hardcore scene and beyond – touring the west coast twice, the east coast, the midwest, Canada, and Europe.
FAIM has shared the stage with bands such as Have Heart, Ceremony, Judge, Modern Life is War, Defeater, and Sick of it All.
