The Faim release new video for “Humans” and announce tour

In anticipation of their long-awaited debut album, State of Mind, The Faim, comprised of Josh Raven (lead vocals), Sam Tye (guitar), Stephen Beerkens (bass/keys) and Linden Marissen (drums/percussion), have unveiled the official music video for lead single “Humans” today.  The cinematic offering dives into the world of science fiction while also highlighting a visually stunning band performance.  The video follows the four-piece as they’re taken captive by a government organization and subjected to tests to determine if they are human or android.  To escape, they’ll need the help of someone who’s more than human.  “Creating the music video for our latest single, “Humans”, was our favorite shoot to date,” says Beerkens.  “We worked with an amazing team in Los Angeles, who helped capture the entire video in just one day.  The concept represents us searching for both our differences and the things we have in common, which also encapsulates the essence of the song: what it means to be human,” he explains.

 

Following the release of last year’s debut EP, Summer Is a Curse, The Faim wasted no time creating music for their first full-length effort, State of Mind, due on September 13th via BMG. The album includes eight brand new tracks in addition to the previously-released singles “Summer Is a Curse” and “Amelie.”  If you were able to catch The Faim on tour in the U.S. earlier this year, you may have also heard them play “Beautiful Drama” and “Infamous,” two additional fan favorites on the record. The Faim will also be unveiling more new music soon in advance of the album release.
The Faim will be returning to the U.S. this fall for a massive co-headline tour with fellow Aussie group, Stand Atlantic.  Live Nation’s Ones To Watch and The Noise will present the entire run of dates (25 cities nationwide), which launches on September 17th in Houston, TX.  The trek continues to build on the quartet’s global touring momentum, where they’ve sold out their own headline shows, played major European festival staples and supported the likes of PVRIS, Andy Black, Sleeping With Sirens and more. Tickets are on-sale now and can be purchased HERE.  You can follow the band and stay up-to-date with all band, album and tour news via the following links.  Photo credit: Michelle Grace Hunder.
