“Off the Record” by The Fades – A Blazing Blast of Alternative Grunge

The Fades, the London-based alternative garage rock band formed in 2002, is ready to hit the music scene with a bang with their upcoming single, “Off the Record.” due out June 02nd. This grungy hardcore punk sound is a breath of fresh air in today’s rock landscape, capturing the essence of the genre with heavy sharp guitars and astute drumming.


Right from the opening notes, the fully fuzzed-up distorted guitar sound grabs your attention and pulls you into the song. It’s in your face and unapologetic, delivering massive guitar chugs that will make your head bang along. Fans of Nirvana’s Bleach album will feel right at home with this track, reminiscent of classics like “Love Buzz” and “School.”
