Agonizing Quiet Space
Failsafe Nation is not the typical heavy alt-rock band, screaming vague, convoluted lyrics over churning, undefined guitar riffs. What they are is a group of musicians who play hard and play smart, without the inflated egos and incessant mediocrity of the current hard rock scene. Their energy is addictive, their compositions are intriguing, and their performance is airtight. Blending elements of hard progressive rock, jazz fusion, punk and metal with a fresh and unique approach, Failsafe Nation transcend the confines of everyday hard rock. In the tradition of groups such as Tool, Soundgarden, and Rush, their songs weave complex patterns and uncommon time signatures around concise, brutal hooks and dynamic vocals. And whether the lyrics address social disintegration, addiction, or diseased relationships, they always compliment the intensity of the music behind them. The members of Failsafe Nation approach heavy music as their art form, with discipline, honesty, and persistence. They are currently playing club dates throughout the New York, Philadelphia and Asbury Park, NJ areas. They have recently opened for Geffen recording artists, theSTART and have just self-released a five song EP entitled 'An Agonizing Quiet Space'.
