The Faux are a 4-piece alternative rock band formed in Perth, Western Australia. The group consists of Alex Agnew (vocals, rhythm guitar), Samuel Tye (lead guitar), Jonathan Dimascio (bass guitar) & Brad Forbes (drums).
Inspired by the likes of The Wombats, The 1975 and INXS; The Faux combine the different sounds they each grew up on & those of their favourite bands now to create songs that anyone can listen to & enjoy. Their live show is highly energetic, showcasing the passion & the vulnerability that goes into the vast array of songs in their set.
The group's first single “9:14” was released on May 31st 2016 & launched them into the Perth scene, where they are now a regular fixture. Their reputation for their live show has landed them several support shows, including 'As It Is' on their Australian tour.
The combination of playing shows and the release of 9:14 then gave them a platform to release their highly anticipated EP “Are You Awake?” which was released on June 20, 2017. This effort debuted at number 6 on the Alternative iTunes charts and number 21 on the overall charts. They followed it up by selling out their first ever headline show at The Garage, which was another overwhelming success.
The Faux are currently writing their second EP, with a 2018 national tour in the works.
