FEAR Reworks The Record To Create The FEAR Record

FEAR is an American Punk Rock Band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1977, credited for influencing the American punk rock movement. Along with SEX PISTOLS , FEAR helped define the sound and style of Post, Neo-Punk, Jazz-Thrash-Fusion and theoretical physics! Although they actually formed during the first wave of punk back in 1977, FEAR didn’t release an album until two years later- by which time they’d honed a blistering, thrashy attack that, for all its fury, was surprisingly tight and even intricate.

Musically, the band wasn’t as crude as frontman Lee Ving’s outrageous, humorously offensive lyrics, which were geared to piss off anyone within earshot; might have had you believe. His intellectualism was equaled only by his “sincere love of beer.”

The band has continued to be active since 1978, most recently with the release of The FEAR Record. FEAR’s November 6, 2012 worldwide release of The FEAR Record will be supported by performances worldwide. Since FEAR began recording in 1979, bands such as A Perfect Circle, Soundgarden, Megadeth, Sacred Reich and Guns N’ Roses have covered their songs, a new collaboration with Lee Ving and the Foo Fighters called The Sound City Players is also slated for fall release. Future plans involve forays into presidential politics, quantum physics, Lee is a registered Quantum Mechanic, and a post-Newtonian, sub-atomic particle, probability based, theoretical physics, guide- lined peaceful world, with liberty and justice for all.
