Fury play Preserving HC June 16. Their new highly acclaimed album ‘Failed Entertainment’ came out this month on Run For Cover — it’s hands down one of the most compelling, sharp & dynamic rock records of the year.
Fury have established themselves quickly. They built on the melodic legacy of Orange County by way of heavy, rhythmic, start-stop guitars and frontman Jeremy Stith’s wordy, referential and poetic lyrics. Their 2016 debut LP on Triple B Records, ‘Paramount’, was met with much respect from the hardcore and punk communities along with praise from outsider critics.
‘Failed Entertainment’ is Fury’s take on the human experience, an attempt to describe every person’s life and how it interacts with others through unmatched highs, desperate lows and mundane middles. Recorded at Paradise Records in Anaheim, the band sought new surroundings and outside expertise, including collaborations with Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden) and Parquet Courts’ Andrew Savage.
Fury complements their past without complicating their understanding of their present, keeping their feet firmly planted in hardcore while bringing in complementary influences, from literature to film to myriad bands and visual artists.
HEAR FAILED ENTERTAINMENT IN FULL VIA THE FADER
“Failed Entertainment threads that needle between a classic youth-crew sound and the elasticity of early-’90s Sub Pop releases – all without diminishing the band’s attack.” THE FADER
“shows just how much its creative ambitions have grown…While Fury’s foundation remains, the band brings in chunkier, groove-oriented riffs, the kind that bring to mind the likes of Refused” AV CLUB
“Fury have cemented themselves as some of the smartest songwriters in their lane” REVOLVER
“gritty, torrential…Fury play a style of hardcore that’s spare, raw, and unvarnished, but is built of uniformly gripping performances, via which the music takes truly unexpected turns into vast melodic expanses” STEREOGUM
“a clear step forward for Fury, and the most accessible thing they’ve done yet” BROOKLYN VEGAN
“The band’s fiery, existential new song grapples with free will and the inevitable passage of time as frontman Jeremy Stith’s seething musings hinge on both the depressing and witty” PASTE
“has an old-school Black Flag-like vibe” CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Fury have an honesty to their sound that lots of hardcore bands dream of… the band channels acts like Lard and Rollins Band, providing an old-school vibe that most bands repping ‘old-school hardcore’ don’t quite get.” KERRANG!
