The first US signing for Shield Recordings is called The Fake Boys and the dudes in the band like to call Massachusetts home. After spending years in a variety of hardcore bands, they wanted to go back to writing songs with a little more melody to them. And so The Fake Boys were born. Their album is called “This Is Where Our Songs Live” and comes with artwork that is so overtly non-punk that it becomes punk again. Ya dig?
Anyway, imagine a mix of Jawbreaker and The Queers and you’re pretty much there. Pretty songs with not so pretty lyrics. Ya dig?
