Epitaph Records is thrilled to announce that Save Face has signed to the label. The New Jersey-based rock band features vocalist/guitarist Tyler Povanda, guitarist Phil McGarry, bassist Chris Aveta, and drummer Chris Flannery.
“Epitaph put out a lot of the records that made us want to play music,” says Povanda. “There’s few other places we could go that would allow us to push the boundaries of our creative potential, and to say that we’re excited about that would be an understatement.”
Today, Save Face makes their Epitaph debut with the video for new single “Bad.” An instantly catchy track built on heavy guitar riffs and throat-shredding vocals, “Bad” embodies the raw yet melodic sensibilities of Save Face. In the video, the band offers a glimpse at the passionate live performance that’s earned them a dedicated following in recent years.
In 2016, Save Face released Folly, a six-track EP that showcased their hook-driven but viscerally charged sound. Last November, the band delivered Folly: On The Rocks—a stripped-down, partly acoustic, more intimate rendition of the EP. The band has also taken on a relentless touring schedule over the past few years. With the band’s ambition and constant need to be on tour, Save Face was on the road for 9 months in 2017 including a run with label mates The Menzingers. Continuing the grind in 2018, Save Face will tour this spring as support for Boston Manor. Tickets are on sale now.
