Friday, June 9: Faux Fiction

fauxfiction_pridefestmilwaukeeFaux Fiction plays at the Wom!nz Spot Lounge on Friday, June 9.

Born in a cool basement during the hot summer months of 2014, Faux Fiction is an alternative/powerpop band based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The band consists of guitarist/vocalist Gabby Kartz, guitarist Jason Kartz, bassist/vocalist Peter Hair, and drummer Paul Tyree.  The four-piece outfit is heavily influenced by 90s alternative, shoegaze, and garage rock, which they blend with pop sensibilities to form their own brand of “pop fuzz.”

Since the release of their self-recorded, self-titled EP in the summer of 2015, the group has been added to the bills of several large Milwaukee-area festivals, including Riverwest FemFest, Arte Para Todos, Tasty Fest, Pridefest, and MKE Punk Fest.

Several tracks from the Faux Fiction EP were also picked up by a number of radio stations and music-centric podcasts. In addition, the foursome has opened for national acts such as Summer Cannibals (Kill Rock Stars), And The Kids (Signature Sounds Recordings), and Dressy Bessy (Yep Roc Records).

Faux Fiction released their first full-length album, Staring at the Sun, in June of 2016. The album has been described as “full of energy and fun” (Breaking and Entering), “bursting with color, wonderful dynamic[s] (Ertrok Radio Hour), and “one of the best local albums” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).

The band is currently working on material for their next release, due out in late 2017.
