Facing Fears Talks of Creativity, Music, and More!

Modern hard rockers FACING FEARS have a handful of content out, with even all new content underway! The band just wants to plan out the growth of their audience and just see where all of this leads them next. The band says so much more about themselves and their music creativeness.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Facing Fears stands for Modern Hard Rock. This may sound contradictory in many ears at first, but Facing Fears embodies exactly this balancing act, which combines the "good old days" with modern sound. Without serving the classic clichés of long-haired frock wearers, the musicians around frontman Deniz Dogru deliver in the vibe of the 80s and 90s with hard and groovy guitar riffs. But the band's hard rock is modern because Facing Fears does not limit itself to the old virtues, but integrates influences of hard metal and melodic pop music into their songwriting. This way every song creates a familiar feeling in the listener's mind without missing tension and variety. The art is to present the listener with music that does not yet exist in its own right, but which immediately catches the listener's ear and gives him the feeling that he has never heard anything else. The first EP "Chapter One" was produced and distributed independently in early 2016. After almost 40 shows in two and a half years, the production of the first longplayer was finally started. With Aljoscha Sieg (Pitchback Studios) the right producer was found for the realisation of the record and with "Horizons" the next coup of Facing Fears was released for the first time under record contract. In 2020 Facing Fears opens the next chapter of the band's history with the single "Forever Ends", including new musicians on drums and bass. Again the top sound is influenced by the Pitchback Studios and knows how to inspire: You will understand!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The origin of the name is simply our inner convenience and attitude to succeed in life. Difficult situations make you grow the most, so face your fears!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

The band is based in Ulm (southern Germany). There is kind of a music scene for self-made music, but still on a lower level. Local bands we recommend would be: Insanity Inc. , Voltkid, Big Daddy X and München West

4. How would you describe your style?

Modern Hard Rock.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we have a lot of new material. Two more songs will be recorded this year and launched in the beginning of next year.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We had (laughing bitterly). But due to the pandemic everything is cancelled. When the situation stabilizes we aim to be out and playing shows and maybe also a tour.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

The major plan is to grow our audience and to reach many people with our music. And in concrete it would be to release more material (probably also a new album) and to play shows and tours as much as possible. As this is the reason we are doing this.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

It is available on every streaming application (Spotify, Apple, YouTube etc.). We are currently working on a merch shop, which will be launched shortly. All information will be communicated through our Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as on our Homepage: http://facingfears.de/live. In the meantime our EP and album can be ordered via direct mail to info@facingfears.de.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

It is like you listen to something familiar in a completely new way, as the old school classic rock is wrapped in a strong melodic Metalcore atmosphere.
