Fake Problems streaming new 7-inch “Strange Emotions”

Florida folk band Fake Problems has been in a weird state of limbo recently, as the band took some time apart to work on solo projects, but I am happy to announce that their new 7-inch, Strange Emotions, is finally available for streaming!  It is their first release as a band since their  2013 split 7″ with You Blew It!. Check it out here!

We recently sat down with frontman Chris Farren and talked with him about the new album and so much more. If you want, and trust me… you want, to see the interview you can watch it here.



DS Interview: Chris Farren (Fake Problems/ Antarctigo Vespucci) on new Fake Problems material, DIY recording, and being a punk celeb

Chris Farren is….well where to begin? The Fake Problems frontman has stepped out from behind the full band setting, such as many punk musicians have before him, and created quite a name for himself as a solo-artist by doing so. Farren’s latest EP “Where U Are” is a dreamy, synth-pop masterpiece that pulls from his more punk background. I had the chance to chat with him about a new Fake Problems record, DIY recording, and the hardships of being a punk rock celebrity at the Philadelphia stop of his tour alongside Dave Hause and Rocky Votolato. You can read the full interview below.
