Working for The Weekend, but Not Loverboy's Way.

I don't what compelled that title......but ....Next Weekend....Fear The State is playing the Frog Pond in Stratford, CT with our good friends in Chaos Theory. Totally looking forward to this, as it's also the first time the band will embrace more covers than originals. Don't get us wrong. We love playing original material, but love the songs we choose to cover just as much. It's what fueled us to play in the first place. We found we have chosen covers for our sets for so long now, we are actually only learning one new song. Tonight we meet to rehearse that song we have never done before. Looking forward to it.

This is one we will definately do on March 9. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqzHcKEdT8U&list=UUboIL4maqjImg3DgfF80fCw So there's a sample.

Now...If you need to check out the original material that fuels Fear The State please goto www.youtube.com/fearthestate to get a dose and purchase it at iTunes.

August 24&25 Weekend Performances & Last weekend recap!

It's Thursday, August 23, 3012. Tomorrow we head to Pawtucket Rhode Island and play at The MET! It's an All Ages Event and we play with our boys in TESTER! this show was originally supposed to be at BALLS, but they had to close. So we go to the MET! It's also Brett's 23rd Birthday Party!! YEAH! Rockin'!

Line-up for Friday is Tester, Fear The State, Thurkills Vision and Sleeping Gadsby. Such an amazing lineup. Pawtucket Rhode Island might be closed on Saturday due to the destruction.

On Saturday We pull into the Worcestor, MA Raven! This place is a little slice of Worcestor Rock N Roll! Such a great stage at this place and a big rock room. The line-up is Tester, Fear The State, Awakening Biota & Javier and Los Dishdogs. This show is 21+ and will rip your face off! So prepare to be faceless for Sunday's events. Sorry. It's just the way it has to be.

Much love to the crew of people who came out last weekend at the Elm Bar! So amazingly fun it was out of control! I love rock n roll with my friends! it's so great! Elm Bar is small, yet lovely. Almost like old Rudy's. Wait! it is!! Thanks to everyone who came out, especially that last minute jam with Bobby Aces with Jim Dizm of Fear The State. Very cool stuff happens at shows.

Next Thursday...POD & Fear The State in Hartford CT at the Great Hall! Get your tickets at ticketfly.com and don't forget to come early. I have zero details on the show times right now, but I heard there is another band on the bill. So 3 bands for $15...that's a no brainer! ROCK N ROLL!

Don't forget to check out our songs in the Player at www.fearthestate.com and pass along & support if you can by purchasing them on iTunes and Amazon. Thanks for listening. They'll be more.

Thanks for reading! See you soon! - Marc

p,s, try the question box on the right side...let's see what we can make happen with that.

This Is The First.

Like The old G-Soul Song Title, this is the first Blog on the New Fear The State Revebnation page.

Right now, the finishing touches of the FTS Music Video Worth is underway, and it's coming along timely! Amazing! That never happens. (all you iPhone users, refer to the Murphy's Law Application for this)

The New CD "Against The Ropes" is now being distributed online to the usually suspected retailers...iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster and more. Go check your favorite out and if we aren't there, we'll tell our people to tell their people to make it right. We want to be at your fingertips.

Thank You for spreading the word about the NEW Music! We are really proud of "Against The Ropes" and want to see it go to the masses. We need all the help we can get on this, so Thank You for helping and reading and writing and listening.

C-You soon!!!!!!!!! Marc
