Fake Problems sign to Side One Dummy

Set to release It's Great to Be Alive on February 17, 2009

Fake Problems are a four piece eclectic, operatic, independent band of nomads that originate from Naples, FL. They will periodically return home to write new songs, sleep, fix their van and say hello to their friends. The rest of their time is spent on the road bringing their fiercely unique sound to young and old. Since the inception of the band in 2005 these guys have logged an impressive 200+ shows a year, released an EP and a Full Length album on Sabot Records. They are now set to release their next Full Length album, It's Great To Be Alive on Feb.17, 2009 (SideOneDummy Records).

Chris Farren (Guitar/Vocals) stands on stage left and delivers a vocal that has a maturity that is unexpected from such a young musician. The guitar playing of Casey Lee is equally as unique and brings a color and mood to the music that is very rare and exciting. Bass player Derek Perry and drummer Sean Stevenson provide a solid, creative rhythm section that seals the signature of the Fake Problems sound. The band also features a wonderful collection of horn parts throughout their records and occasionally tour with horn players.

The lead off track, "1234" sets the tone for the album and leads perfectly into the stand out track, "The Dream Team." Other highlights include, "The Heaven & Hell Cotillion" which chants the straight forward chorus of "I'm going to Heaven and you're going to Hell." The somber "Too Cold Too Hold" & "Tabernacle Song" keep the album interesting around every turn.

SideOneDummy is proud to be releasing Fake Problems - It's Great To Be Alive in stores on Feb.17, 2009.
