Richmond VA’s Faultline brings their brand of unapologetic rock without any frills or gimmicks, just confident vocals, actual melodic guitar playing and a steady back beat. The band’s sophomore release, THE SECOND COMING, is a no-frills sustained slow-burn combination of new millennium rock delivered in explosive 4-minute bites with snarling lyrics and a high-energy, blazing audio presence and the band’s trademarks: catchy hooks, fast rhythms and aggressive lead guitar.
The band began 2012 supporting Orgy’s “Bad Blood Tour”, a perfect fit. The band’s live show channels the loud and ballsy vibe of many of the artists they have been fortunate enough to support on tour – Sevendust, All That Remains, Halestorm, Lacuna Coil, Bobaflex, and Nonpoint for example.
Faultline shows off their musicality and diversity on THE SECOND COMING, from the deliberate and sustained howls of “Contention” to the mid-tempo anthem “The Beast”, to the more sensitive “Blink”, they have crafted a unique and cool rock sound that carries the record from start to finish. “Hindsight” is the lead single from THE SECOND COMING, and El Jay proclaims that he has “…waited far too long for a moment just like this.” Faultline is primed for a massive 2013, which could lead this proclamation to be a prophetic one.
