FACS Released New Single “Slogan”

On their forthcoming album Still Life in Decay, Chicago’s FACS have never been more solidified as a unit.  The trio has been perfecting its brand of intense, cathartic art rock over the course of four ever-evolving albums, and Still Life in Decay is their most focused effort.  The apocalyptic chaos that once defined them is waved away in favor of an examination of events with cumbrous clarity. 

On display is today’s premiere of the album’s second single, “Slogan“; the song’s meditative guitar and ruminating rhythm section show the band at the peak of their powers. Bassist Alianna Kalaba, who stepped in for founding member Jonathan Van Herik in 2018, makes her amicable last stand on this album. Alongside drummer Noah Leger, they dance and twist around each other like a double helix, forming the DNA of what makes FACS so special.

Recorded by Sanford Parker at Chicago’s esteemed Electrical Audio, Still Life In Decay will be available April 7, 2023 from Trouble In Mind Records.
