Modern Short Stories has signed Chicago's Farraday. The band is currently in the studio with...
FARRADAY is a female led pop punk band from the suburbs of Chicago. Founded in the fall of 2010, this 6 piece outfit has developed into one of Chicago’s biggest up and coming acts. With powerhouse vocals and an exhilarating live stage show, Farraday has brought its unique blend of pop-punk to every corner of the midwest and looks to storm to the coasts with ultra-charged drums, soaring guitars and infectious synths.
FARRADAY released their first EP in the Spring of 2010 to rave reviews and sold out shows in the Chicagoland area. Neck Deep Media described Farraday as, “…one of the MUST SEE musical acts to come out Chicago… Their energy and stamina is impeccable while on stage and they know how to get a crowd moving…” The record, “The Fear Of Missing Out” was featured on NBC, WGN, local Chicago radio stations, and netted them major spots on shows headlined by the likes of the Plain White Tees, Cobra Starship and Anberlin.
In the winter of 2012, Farraday joined up with Modern Short Stories (Founded by members of Punchline and Blue of Colors) to create a two song single. Produced by Marc McClusky (Weezer, Hit The Lights, Ludo) the singles, “Lockdown” and “Find Me” were the impetus for the bands first midwest tour. Both songs were featured on national television in shows such as on CBS and the CW.
Back from tour, Farraday began working on what would become their first full length record, entitled “Where I Belong”, ecorded with Nick Scalise (Best Friends / October Fall) and TJ Martin in Chicago. To help get the record made, Farraday partnered with their fans, and Kickstarter, to raise an entirely crowd funded $10,000 to bring this album to life. With their winter release, this sextet will be embarking on a nationwide tour to spread the Chicago pop-punk sound they’ve become known for.
