Real, guitar driven, and soul-laced rock n roll still exists.
Not in the intentionally under-performed tones of trendy shoe-gaze, or in the overproduced depressing drudge of modern hard-rock, but in an exciting little chasm in Nashville where the band FOUST resides. FOUST, formed in 2019 out of the ashes of the moderately successful Blackwater James, is a true rock n’ roll band that is commonly compared to the likes of Velvet Revolver, SpaceHog, Foo Fighters, and The Cult. Both on record and in concert, FOUST is high energy, exciting, unpredictable, and a bit ludicrous…everything a rock band should be. The band takes themselves seriously, but not too seriously.
Baring the bands name, lead singer, guitarist and primary songwriter, Chris Foust recruited longtime confidant and drummer Todd Schlosser (Blackwater James, Majestjc Swayzee, ATG) and bassist/producer Chris Utley to form the primary elements of the group. In the winter of 2019, demo recordings of the band were published online and circulated, generating additional interest in the group and their sound. Then in the spring of 2020, the tracks were remastered and released as a single (The Fountain) and then later in June, the debut EP, REVIVAL.
