“All in A Day”
“The recording quality is there, the professionalism is there,these guys are well on their way! For this reviewer a copy of their album is a must! They are ready for the big time, my suggestion to the rest of the listening world,Prepare to be assimilated!” CLINT GAIGE Music reviewer/ & Radio Station Consultant

“Our words are our wounds and our music transcends the conscience state of memory or you could just say we are the John Cusack’s of rock’n roll.”

Beginning as a little less than hardcore, but more than pop-punk attitude in 1996 FAiLSAFE stepped up to the next level with the help of producer Ryan Greene (Nerf Herder) with a crushing yet accessible 4 song demo. Since 1999 FAiLSAFE has shared the stage with regional and national band / RiddlinĠ Kids (Aware Records)The Ataris (Columbia Records) Recover/ Fastball and EVE 6.

Failsafe is part of the incestuous Austin TX rock family.They have a full length CD and EP just completed Aug. 2003
