Based around frontman and band mastermind Giancarlo Floridia, Faithsedge was born in Huntington Beach, California in 2009. Faithsedge is currently wrapping up the recording for its fourth album due 1st quarter of 2019. The as yet untitled album will be the follow-up to 2016’s Restoration.
Our fourth album encompasses 10 songs with sounds ranging from fast hard-hitting double bass to acoustic power ballads. I tried to take the best elements from our previous albums that I felt people liked and put them into one package. I also felt it was better to tune the guitars up higher, which we did, so I can sing higher and more melodic and to give it a more throwback feel to how music used to be . I think it was a good choice to do so with so many bands trying to tune lower and lower.”
Floridia’s vocals were tracked by Jeff Pogan at Costa Mesa recording studios.
The new album also marks the return of former Stryper bassist Tim Gaines holding up the rhythm section with Mr. Big / Ace Frehley drummer Matt Starr. Bass tracking was done in Arizona and drum tracking in Los Angeles.
Former Dokken guitarist Alex De Rosso will be doing all the guitar work for the album along with producing mixing and mastering of the album at The New Cube studios in Italy.
The album is promised to be a return to the melodic sounds of 80’s arena rock but also with a mix of progressive and metal .
