Former Champions are an electro rock band based out of Richmond, Virginia. Their music showcases vocal lead compositions intermixed with an array of instrumentally driven electronic pieces. A sonic blend of synthesized keys mixed with sub-bass, distorted guitar, harmonized vocals, samples, and a multitude of drums, cymbals and percussion combine to create what the band describes as “street music.”
2011 has been an exciting year for Former Champions as they released their self titled debut album and made appearances at several festivals including Camp Bisco, FloydFest, and Camp Barefoot. They have shared the stage with artists including The New Deal, Perpetual Groove, Conspirator, EOTO, Zappa plays Zappa, Papadosio, Brothers Past, Hackensaw Boys, Tea Leaf Green, and many others. FC is now gearing up for an extensive touring schedule for 2012 and are currently working on their second studio album targeted for a mid-year release.
