Because we're not super cool, we're actually 4 dysfunctional dudes who love writing killer tunage.
With the release of Thick as Thieves, Face Value brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with progressive guitar work, addicting and powerful choruses, and an alt-rock attitude, the record boasts the aesthetic of pop-punk anthems. Although the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them all together much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the EP never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.
Originally formed by Alec Myers (front man/guitarist) and Jeremiah Douglas (drums/electric triangle), Face Value witnessed a departure of initial members Kyle Ritter and Garrett Heydt. Soon after, brothers Parker Ross and Grayson Ross joined the band, meshing their unique pop-rock and effect-driven sound with the fundamental raw punk tendencies Alec and Jeremiah gravitated towards.
Invited to play the 2015 Driven Music Conference and 17th Annual Texas Rock Fest (both in Austin, TX), along with the 2016 Launch Music Conference, and Celebrate Fairfax! Festival 2016, the band is certainly not new to performing on bigger stages, and are always working on new material as they hone in their live performance.
