So for anyone unfamiliar with yourself, tell us a little bit about your backstory and how you ended up here –
We were formed in 2016 after Josh and Gareth created a project with ex drummer Chris after their previous band split. We released our first EP (self titled) in late 2016. Matt was then recruited to play bass for us in time to write and record our second EP ‘Prey’ in 2018 with an early 2019 release. Chris decided to part ways with us in the summer of 2019 and in November we held a number of auditions in which we decided to invite Jordan into the Fatality family, completing our current lineup.
Tell us about what you are currently up to –
We released ‘Juggernaut’ in August to a great reception and we have just released our newest single ‘The Lesson’ on October 5th on all streaming platforms. We’re aiming to release a new single every one or two months until we’re allowed to play live shows again. We want to keep our audiences happy so while we cannot physically play for them we hope a few new releases will suffice.
‘The Lesson’ by Fatality is now available to stream on all platforms.
Josh (vocals) says “We wanted to go for a more laid back style of music with this track but still with a strong message and a nice heavy breakdown to go along with it. The Lesson is one of my favourite Fatality tracks to date. It’s about the human race, where we came from, what we were supposed to do and be and how we can change and be better to one another.”
What is next for you?
As mentioned we will be releasing a number of singles throughout the rest of the year and most likely into 2021. ‘Eight’, ‘Indemnify’ and ‘Saviour’ will be our next tracks to come out. Once we’re able to book and play live shows again we’re going to incorporate some of those tracks and some new material into an album so we can tour all our new material and bring it directly to the crowds.
What are you influences // Inspiration?
Josh: Jacoby from Papa Roach is the person that’s inspired me. His stage presence, energy and vocals are second to none. He’s someone that can always get a crowd going and has such an addictive personality that you can’t help but be mesmerised by his craft. One of my favourite of their tracks is Blood Brothers from their Infest album!
If you can supply us with a YouTube link for the track so I can post the video in the feature, and give me a quote as to why this particular artist captured your imagination and influenced or inspired you to want to follow suit.
