Fingerprints Music

If credibility were currency, FAKE NAMES wealth would be off thecharts. Composed of Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty), Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace), Dennis Lyxzn (Refused, INVSN,The [International] Noise Conspiracy), Johnny Temple (Girls AgainstBoys, Soulside) and the newest member Brendan Canty (Fugazi, Rites ofSpring), the band is a veritable post-hardcore dream team.

However instead of rehashing the past, Expendables is a reinventionthat sees the band dialing back the distortion and leaning into themelodies. The result pairs their unparalleled pedigree with a popsensibility thats slightly unexpected and wholly satisfying. For our
last record [2019s FAKE NAMES]the general influences were 70s U.K.punk and power-pop; but it wound up with a little classic rock vibe aswell, like the Vibrators meets Aerosmith. We never saw that coming! ,Baker explains.

For Expendables the band enlisted producer Adam Atom Greenspan (IDLES, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Baker explains, The pop influences are alittle more out front on this one and the production really helps it shine. It sounds more direct, more urgent.Expendables is the latest exchange in a musical conversation that spans four decades. Baker aptly refers to the lineup of FAKE NAMESas a mutual admiration society and says that once the five members got in the same room together, it felt as if they had already been inthe band together for years.
