MAKING MAGIC AT SPIN RECORDING STUDIOS!

IMG_5052.JPG

Right after our special summer NYC show at the Gramercy Theatre, we entered Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City to capture the energy. We tracked the basics for five new songs with Nik Chinboukas (Metal Allegiance, Testament, Alex Skolnick Trio, Acrassicauda) for our next release. The vibe was fantastic and it came through in the performances as we look to release a single early next year. Look out for regular studio updates in the coming weeks! #NEWMUSIC #NEWFTAALBUM2019 #RECLAIMROCKMUSIC

SUMMER SHOW, NEW MUSIC AND AUSTRALIAN LOVE!

 FTA FAMILY!  Though it may seem quiet on the FTA front, we've actually been working hard in the lab, putting the finishing touches on new music!  The songs are vibrant and energetic, filled with dynamic arrangements and passion, all with our signature sound.  We are very excited about what we've been writing and arranging, so much so that we are heading into our home-away-from-home, Spin Studios in Long Island City, earlier than expected--early August to be precise--to capture the magic we've concocted.  Be on the lookout for studio updates in the coming weeks as well as song snippets along the way.  Did someone say new single this fall?  We were honored to be a featured artist in the Australian rock website and blog, May the Rock Be With You's Best Things You Never Heard, International! Special thanks to Troy Culpan and everyone at  May The Rock Be With You . Read the cool feature and interview here:   http://maytherockbewithyou.com/mtrbwy/2018/07/four-trips-ahead/   Moreover, we are super excited to announce our summer show at the legendary Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd street) in NYC on Wednesday, August 15th at 9:00pm! We'll be debuting new songs and playing your faves from "...And The Fire Within." To purchase specially-priced $12 tickets, contact us at  ftafanmail@gmail.com . It will definitely be a hot night, so don't miss it.  See you on the stage!

RECLAIMING ROCK MUSIC IN 2018!

 Happy New Year FTA Family!  Yes, we know we're a few weeks in--but we have been busy working on new material.  2017 was a momentous year for FTA--our full length album, "...And The Fire Within" spent 8 consecutive weeks on Metal Contraband's National Top 50 Radio Chart while we received great reviews from local and national music press, debuting our video for "Bring Me Down" on AXS.  If you haven't already, check it out here-- "Bring Me Down" official video .  More importantly, we played great shows on the East Coast and received wonderful feedback from fans and new followers. Your support has been phenomenal!  Those of you who came out to our red hot, end-of-the-year show at The Gramercy Theatre in NYC heard two new songs.  Judging by the response, you are all as excited about our new tracks as we are! For those of you who missed the show, check out fan-shot footage:   FTA "Step Into My World" live at The Gramercy Theatre 12.8.17    FTA "Bring Me Down" live at The Gramercy Theatre 12.8.17   Keep your eyes peeled for a new live video of "December" from the Spin Sessions last summer, debuting at the end of February 2018 and updates from our rehearsal space with clips from new songs in various stages of completion.  New spring shows will be announced shortly and new FTA merchandise will be available for you soon as well.  RECLAIM ROCK MUSIC IN 2018.

FTA Family!

We have been following our muse and doing lots of writing over the past two months, some of which you will get to hear at our upcoming shows.  To say we are excited about the direction of the new music would be an understatement.  We plan to enter the studio early next year.  Stay tuned on how you can be a part of our creative process!

Make sure to watch our live clip for "Step Into My World" from the live Spin Recording Studio session in June.  And keep your eyes peeled for another live video from those sessions for "December" in the coming weeks.  Thanks to all of you who have been keeping FTA on the ReverbNation Top 30 for the past three months.  You RULE.

FTA Summer 2017 Updates!

FTA Family!  

We are very excited about the great response our new album, "...And The Fire Within," has been receiving from press and radio. The album charted in the top 50 on the national Metal Contraband charts in the late spring for over two months, peaking at #34! 

Kudos to all of the stations who have been flying the FTA flag and sharing our music all over the United States.  A special shout out to DMX Austin who are leading the charge, keeping "...And The Fire Within" in ultra heavy rotation.  

A BIG THANK YOU to our fans who came to our special in-studio session at Spin Recording Studios on June 2nd 2017 and all of you who listened via our live stream. The evening was captured professionally on video by To The Bitter End Productions and recorded for future official release.  We began mixing the live tracks at Spin this month and will be sharing songs in the coming weeks.

See you on the stage!
