FACS - "North America Endless"

There's been a killer post punk revival lately, and FACS have been on the forefront of it. As soon as their latest single, "North America Endless," starts, you just know it's FACS. The Chicago trio just has such a distinctive sound all to their own. This new single is everything we love about them. It's a dark and moody post punk song that's a slow burn, but is just dripping with intensity right from the start. "North America Endless" is a song dripping with catharsis. Even just listening to the song could change you, even if it's just a little bit.

Vocalist/guitarist Brian Case says of the new single:

“We had been talking a lot about how to incorporate melody in a new way with the material we were starting to write after Still Life in Decay, and this was one of the first experiments with that. I had this inverted Polvo thing I had been playing around with that Jonathan married to a really nice Frippy sustained lead, and it kind of just wrote itself. Lyrically, it's about the dissociation needed to live in this country and the powerlessness that can bring. Noah's beat at the end of the song is one of my favorites from him.”

You can watch the video for "North America Endless" below. The single is due out April 12 via Sub Pop Records. It will be limited to one thousand copies worldwide, and will come on white vinyl with a cover of the Eurythmics' "Take Me to Your Heart" as a b-side. You can pre-order your copy here.
