Award Winning Clip by Legendary Director Nigel Dick

“…The trio of Tony Scalzo, Miles Zuniga and Joey Shuffield remains Austin’s best rock band. Their first record in eight years features a dozen songs that range from Zuniga’s Beatles-esque acoustic gem “Behind the Sun” to Scalzo’s instantly memorable pop tune “I Will Never Let You Down.” — Austin American Statesman
 
“Step Into Light is a diverse, engaging record from one of pop’s most tenacious bands. …Fastball’s commitment to craft and feeling, without sacrificing fun or humor make Step Into Light another welcome entry into the unjustly overlooked catalog of this enduring, charismatic group.” — Paste Magazine
 
FASTBALL released their 6th album, Step Into Light, earlier this summer and immediately set out on an extensive North American tour with Everclear. The new album is available through the band’s own 33 1/3 label and is the first FASTBALLcollection to get a vinyl LP release. The band is now launching their own headlining tour beginning  July 20th in Atlanta with multiple stops across the country through October.
Just prior to the tour announcement, FASTBALL premiered the video for their third single,  Behind the Sun, with Guitar World. The award winning video clip was directed by legendary director & producer, Nigel Dick, whose credits include videos for: Def Leppard, Oasis, Guns N’ Roses, Britney Spears, Cheap Trick, and many more.
It’s been a busy start to the season for FASTBALL.  Before Step Into Light, was officially released the band shared the entire album via billboard.com.  Appropriately, Fastball then appeared on MLB.com and on Sirius XM for an interview and performance on the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show where they discussed the unexpected reincarnation of their hit “Out of My Head” on Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello’s #1 smash Hit “Bad Things.” The band also performed one of Howard’s favorite Beatles songs “The Two Of Us.”  Highlights can be found here.
With nearly 20 years of musical explorations and milestones under its belt, FASTBALL remains one of the most consistent and continuously celebrated rock bands on the road today.  The  group recorded the new album Step Into Light in their hometown of Austin, Texas, with the three bandmates co-producing with longtime friend Chris “Frenchie” Smith.
The resulting collection extends FASTBALL’s widely-loved body of work, which encompasses such acclaimed albums as their 1996 debut Make Your Mama Proud, their 1998 platinum breakthrough All the Pain Money Can Buy (which spawned the Grammy-nominated Top Five hit “The Way”), 2000’s The Harsh Light of Day, 2004’s Keep Your Wig On and 2009’s Little White Lies.
