"Failure has been a huge inspiration to me. They say amateurs borrow and professionals steal. Well over the years this pro has robbed these poor saps blind. Biting their style has become second nature. But please don't tell them that." - Maynard James Keenan
Often compared to seminal bands of the '90s like Nirvana and Soundgarden, Failure were definitely an important gem of the alternative rock movement. The Los Angeles-based band signed with the now iconic independent label, Slash Records, in 1992. They went on to release three full-length albums on Slash before disdanding in 1997. Despite contributing a cover of "Enjoy the Silence" for a Depeche Mode tribute album in '97 and releasing two compilations post-breakup, Failure has never reunited. Until now.
Failure is back and set to play its first show in over 15 years! It's all going down in Los Angeles at the El Rey on February 13, 2014.
