June News, Upcoming Shows, & More

Hello friends,

 First off, we wanted to say thanks to everyone that came out and rocked with us in May. We had the pleasure of playing at the Bouquet (Boise) and the Knitting Factory (Boise) with a bunch of great bands including Royal Bliss, Like A Storm, Fly2Void, Wayland, Dying Famous, Fort Harrison, and Fires In France. Special thanks to everyone at 100.3 the X and the Knitting Factory for making us feel right at home on the 29th. We had the chance to meet a lot of really cool people at the shows and we appreciate the support! We've been gearing up for two shows in June. The first is Saturday, June 14th at McCleary's State St. Pub in Boise. We'll be sharing the stage with our brothers from another mother, Slow Ricky, for a backyard throwdown on McCleary's new patio. No Cover, 21 & up, Full Bar. Music from 7 to 10pm. We're especially excited about this show because we will be playing a full 90 min set. So if anyone is wondering who or what Faded Leroy is, this is a great chance to find out! The set will feature tracks from our album, Days Between Stations, as well as new songs and some surprise covers. On Sunday June 29th, we'll be performing at the Shredder in Boise. This show is all ages and starts at 4pm. It is a battle of the bands and Faded Leroy will be featured along with Camas, Leverson, the Headcases, Fetish 37, Deathstalker, Hollowpoint, and the Brian Ward Band. You can get tickets directly from us by messaging us here.

Last month, in addition to the live performances "Days Between Stations" received some press in both the Idaho Statesman and the Boise Weekly Mixtape. Thanks to Michael Deeds at the Statesman for giving the album a listen. He writes, "What can be declared definitively is that fairly new Boise band Faded Leroy uncorks the post-hardcore singing/shrieking vocal contrast like clockwork. If you're a fan of Hawthorne Heights, Pierce the Veil, Silverstein, etcetera - therefore not wincing during Faded Leroy's harsh laryngitis bouts - standout tracks such as album opener "Memes" and the dreamlike hidden track "Imaginarium" might feel well-conceived and powerful. Production flourishes give these songs polish. This isn't metal. It's midpaced, dynamic rock with enough inviting guitar hooks to keep things interesting. You'll even hear musical hints of old-school bands such as AFI and At the Drive-In scattered throughout typical life-challenging lyrical themes." You can read the entire review here. Amy Atkins at the Boise Weekly writes, "If you like your music borne of the realm between melodic hard rock and metal, high production values and hooky melodies and delivered via wrenching screams (and some singing), Days Between Stations, the debut full-length from local rock band Faded Leroy belongs in your library." Thanks to Amy for giving us some love. 

As always, feel free to say "hi" or hit us up with your comments, questions and feedback here at fadedleroy.com, facebook, reverbnation, or soundcloud. Keep your ears peeled for a new single soon!
