“Reggae Punk Rock Outfit Fayuca Signs With Phoenix-Based Fervor Records”

“Not only did Fayuca return from their SxSW tour in one piece - they brought back High Times magazine's 2012 Doobie Award for Best New/Underground Artist. This year marked the publication's 10th anniversary of celebrating marijuana and music.”


“Whether by the increased exposure of bands on the Internet, or people’s disillusionment with the state of mainstream music, the borders between genres are continually blurring as the years tick by. Never has that ideal been more evident than with the various strains of hardcore music that seem to gain prominence each year. Continuing that tradition is a three-piece outfit from Phoenix, Arizona known as Fayuca. (http://www.fayucamusic.com/) Melding rock, reggae and salsa-core, Fayuca has drawn many comparisons to Sublime; however, Fayuca sets itself apart by embracing upbeat tempos and metal. Thanks in part to Raf, their skilled drummer, they’re capable of attaining an edge that isn’t just a smug attempt to look tough, but actually complements their rich Latin melodies. Like Pennywise and various giants within the ska-punk ethos, Fayuca exhibits a wealth of talent—not only in executing their songs, but also in their understanding of musical structure.”
