Dear Face The King Army,

For those who have yet to hear the news, we are proud to announce that we have been chosen as one of the Top 4 finalists for the Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands out of over 20,000 competitors nationwide. On JANUARY 17th, 2014 Face The King will be rocking the HOUSE OF BLUES Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California to compete for the grand prize to perform on the entire Warped Tour next summer (and much more). We'll be playing alongside 3 other phenomenal bands with a special guest headliner, We Came As Romans. This is a very special night for us not only because it will be our first time playing a public show on the west coast, but it is a tremendous opportunity for Face The King that can take us to new heights and beyond. To have our fans be there and show support, to bring everyone they know, and be the loudest cheering section during this time would truly mean the world to us.

Face The King's Anti Bullying Movement - We want YOUR story.

Why do people waste their time bullying others? Why can't life be like a concert? Everybody, no matter what you like - singing together.

Face The King is working on partnering with a major anti-bullying movement. This would be a national endeavor and will hopefully start a real change. If you've ever been bullied or know someone who has - we want to hear your story.

A great quote we wanted to share:

"Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, musicians and singers face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they’ll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every role, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience’s soul. Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life’s nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another’s heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes." — David Ackert, LA Rock Times

Face The King plays WARPED TOUR '12!

Greetings to the BEST FANS IN THE WHOLE WORLD!! Thanks to you FACE THE KING is playing Warped Tour 2012 on July 21st at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. We could not be more thankful. Okay maybe we could. Maybe we could send Joey to each person's house to give a thank you hug. But come on - that is just not financially feasible. However, if you come to Warped Tour - he will be giving free hugs all day. One lucky person might even get the high five of a lifetime (courtesy of Randy Palumbo). We go on pretty early - SO DON'T BE LATE!!! For those of you who can't make it - we will be posting videos. I am not going to even post a link for tickets. Just go to Ticketmaster and type in WAPRED TOUR. It is that huge of a show. There will be somewhere between 1 and a lot of people there. We have worked sooooooooooooooooooooooooo hard for such a long time and it is moments like these that make everything worth while. On a scale of 1 - 10, Dan said he was excited. When Eric found out he responded with "Great - I just bought tickets for Warped Tour - now what do I do?" On a side note we are picking two lucky fans to come to the show to help - courtesy of FACE THE KING. Thank you all very very very very very very very much. Nassau Coliseum get ready to FACE THE KING!! Was that over the top? - I can never tell.

Love, Eric, Dan, Joey, & Randy
