1. If could introduce yourselves for us, who are you?
We are alt rock trio Faded Shades! A bubbling kentish stew full of all things jangle pop rock. 1. How did you all meet?
Joe & Charlie were introduced by their parents since they are brothers, and Liam was a bloke Joe met on the internet many moons ago, a website called Join My Band to be precise. They joined another band which eventually went on to split up but remained friends and jam buddies until the formation of Faded Shades a few years later.
2. How long have you been playing?
The band has been established since our debut album was recorded and released in 2018! It Gets Heavy was a defning time for the band and is available to stream via all major platforms. Its a full spectrum of the bands sound and I believe still demonstrates a lot of song crafting prowess.
3. What three words would you use to describe the music you play?
God like tunes
4. What are your musical infuences?
Our musical tastes range from Australian blues slide guitarists, through to mod era british invasion and all the way to 90’s heavy rock. We really just love the quintessential guitar band vibes. A jukebox loaded with Oasis, Small Faces, The Who, Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys and Rolling Stones is our idea of heaven, especially if theres a pool table and beer involved.
5. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen during a show?
A tequila fuelled mosh pit led by an air guitarist.
6. Being away from the stages in the last few years, where was the frst place you visited when the restrictions were lifted?
Went to see Gerry Cinnamon in Brighton which was amazing. Other than that just the pub at any given opportunity, we shall never take it for granted again by lord.
7. What’s the one record you own but wouldn’t ever admit to owning?
I have a soft spot for Avril Lavigne that never seems to leave. Let Go was the frst album I ever bought also, I wear it like a badge of honour to be honest
8. What have you been listening in the last few weeks?
Liam Gallagher new album and saw him at Knebworth, Dropout Boogie from the Black Keys, Kula Shakers Love In Separation is a beautiful new song also. Plus a healthy dose of Eagles since saw them in Liverpool recently! A whole array of old skool and new skool.
9. Are there any releases you have planned in the near future?
Yes! We have recently released our song Waiting on Tomorrow and its available to stream everywhere, also on 8th of July our next single “Heartache Calling” is dropping! Cant wait. Be sure to follow us on our social media channels to keep up to date with the action via the handle @fadedshadeband.
