Faith In Jane
From: Thurmont, MD
Sounds like: Doom Metal


1. How did the band come together and form? Who thought of the name “Faith In Jane” and is there any meaning behind it?

We’ve all been best friends since high school and the 3 of us have always had a passion for music. We used to play more punk rock type stuff but we’ve drifted far from that now. We’ve had the name Faith In Jane since the beginning and anyone can take the name however they want it haha.

2. What do you want listeners to take away from the "The Words Of Evil Men" album? How has reception to it been thus far? How's the new music coming along?

We want people to hear the album and then come see us live because that’s what we’re all about. We’ve gotten a lot of positive response from "The Words Of Evil Men" and we’ve gained more fans since we released it. The new music is coming along great we’re recording at Antithesis Studios with our boy Ashley Maccabee. We did all the instrumentation live, 6 tracks all in almost 1 take each. We’re doing the vocals soon. The next album will be self-titled and will be finished around the end of May.

3. How would you describe your music to the average listener?

Low grooving evil trippy fusion metal.

4. What can people expect from your live show? What are your favorite songs to play live?

They can expect a musical adventure. We improvise a lot of parts in our songs and strive to make it different every time we play. We love playing "Smaug". "Samurai Psalm". "Whale Riders", "The Occultist" and all our new songs. We try to mix up sets a lot too.

5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

High On Fire, Iron Maiden haha, and Hank 3.

6. Any crazy show stories?

Hahaha none we’d wanna talk about.

7. What’s your take on the current state of metal?

Too many clich├ęs nowadays with no soul and that includes most current music not just metal. There’s too many good bands not getting recognition.

8. What’s the current music scene like there in Maryland both locally and state wide?

There really isn’t much of a scene where we’re from but we’ve played a wide variety of bands around Maryland and a lot of good ones. There’s a lot of awesome musicians around the area.

9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

Do what you gotta do. The bible is the most stolen book in the world.

10. What’s next for Faith In Jane?

A new album and a lot more shows. And merch!

11. Any shoutouts?

Kurt Hasselhoff for all our artwork. Thom Mize for everything. Ashley Maccabee for recording us. John Coltrane and all our fans and everyone who supports or hates us.
