the failsafe device

what's crazier than a new-gind band with 3 singers? honestly, not much.

they started after as the sun sets (in sept 2001) and you can hear it in their sound. Chris (the drummer now with bury your dead) even sets up his snare like the old atss's drummer. They mix constantly changing time signatures and hard-grinding screams.

They were great to see live, always going all out with guitars and basses flailing around into the crowds.

and people in the crowd going crazy, taring down things and screaming along in high pitched voices.

after 1 year, they came out with a 10-song, hand packaged cd that was very excellent.
made their WUNH debut on nov 19 2002, driving 4 hours to play.

One problem with a band with 7 memebers seems to be keeping everyone together. And they have slowly filtered off to other projects (BYD/WWBW/ and other things like electronica).
Currently, they are on hiatus. Plans are to get back and do one final show or release before they are through, but I guess we'll see.
They have become a semi-institution in CT music.

failsafe will be getting back together in in next couple weeks to do more rehearsing. we al have new equipment so it should sound much better and the songs will have much more jazz elements we might have jazz sax player and trumpet player intrested in becoming member but will see how the new songs progress. I heard chris is done with bury your dead but i can't confirm it. if so expect to hear much more from the device... :0 cuase i feel we haven't released a good debut yet with good production..

i got the cd when what weapons bring war played at some polish hall in i.o. the bassest from wich goes into how his girlfriend loves it in the ass in fact she only takes it in the ass. as me and a couple friends stood stuned he offerd us cds.

the failsafe device is one of the sickest bands around, never got a chance to go out and see them but i could imagine it would be a fun time. thanks for the cd and the mental pictures =)

the failsafe device rules, the drummer is awesome, 3 singers is insane, it gives me a musical boner.

What Weapons Bring War owns it too. Ross and Roll

one of the singers left, and then when tehy played a whopping 2 minute set two fridays ago when my band was butt raped they only had dennis on vocals. wtf, i gotta see more of this! milford's only! ct needs some more tech or grind, or good bands at that.
