Full of young excitement, angst and debauchery and with confidence in spades, Modern Faces are a true Rock 'n' Roll band in the making. Growing up in their Scottish hometown of Dunfermline, the five friends; Monty (vocals and guitar), Gary (drums and backing vocals), Jamie (bass), Mike (lead guitar) and Shields (keys), formed in early 2010 with the goal of merging their Rock n Roll, Britpop and Motown influences to make great music.
The debut double A-side single release of "Pravda Scrolls" and "Cynical Brother", released on their own label Dirty Love Recordings, gives a perfect taste of what is to come from Modern Faces. "Pravda Scrolls" is a politically driven indie anthem full of dark guitars and brooding, intense vocals while "Cynical Brother" has a punchy, heavy guitar riff throughout with thumping drums and epic vocals. Modern Faces wear their musical influences on their sleeves and musical inspirations such as Oasis, The Verve, The Music, The Stone Roses and Kasabian are all evident in their strong indie rock sound.
Modern Faces have supported the likes of Kasabian, The Charlatans and Shed Seven along with playing their own headline shows and will be going out on the road for further shows and festival performances this year.
The band are currently in the studio working on their debut album which will be released later this year. Modern Faces are geared up to resurrect good old fashioned British Rock 'n' Roll, so get ready for them.
