FACS Shares “North America Endless”

Chicago’s FACS is set to release the new single which features an exclusive, original A-side, “North America Endless,” and a cover of The Eurythmics’ “Take Me to Your Heart”(Sub Pop) on the B-side, on April 12, 2024. It is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide, and it comes on white vinyl. The band has just released the video for “North America Endless”, directed by Joshua Ford.

FACS has been perfecting its brand of intense, cathartic art rock over the course of four ever-evolving albums. Beginning with 2018’s Negative Houses through 2021’s landmark Present Tense, the trio digs deep into the gaping maw of a black hole and pulls back whatever debris they can grasp onto. Their 2023 LP Still Life iDecay came as an addendum to their last album— a “post-event review,” if you will. The band is made up of Brian Case (90 Day Men, The Ponys, Disappears), Jonathan Van Herik (Disappears), and Noah Leger (Milemarker).
Of “North America Endless” Brian Case offers, “We had been talking a lot about how to incorporate melody in a new way with the material we were starting to write after Still Life in Decay, and this was one of the first experiments with that. I had this inverted Polvo thing I had been playing around with that Jonathan married to a really nice Frippy sustained lead, and it kind of just wrote itself. Lyrically, it’s about the dissociation needed to live in this country and the powerlessness that can bring. Noah’s beat at the end of the song is one of my favorites from him.”
