New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for The Faim.
With only one full-length album to their name, The Faim have accomplished what many bands only dream of: performance slots at major festivals like Reading & Leeds, sold-out headline shows around the world, certified Gold singles, radio hits and over 130 million streams across their catalog, to name a few.
The Faim (French for “the hunger”) have been building to their success since they performed their first show at Stephen’s 18th birthday party, then known as Small Town Heroes. Josh and Stephen grew up together in Perth, Western Australia, playing together on various sports team, and began writing music together after an assignment in Stephen’s music class. Soon the musicians were penning their own songs, inspired by bands like The Wombats, The Killers, and The 1975, and each brought in an array of musical influences, from indie rock to pop-punk. Sam and Linden, who met working at The Hen House Rehearsal Studios in Perth, rounded out the band’s lineup after they changed their name to The Faim.
After working with the likes of Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots), and Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds of Summer) on their debut EP and early singles, they released their first full-length album, State Of Mind, in 2019. The album showed the group expanding their range and getting out of their comfort zones. They worked with numerous songwriters and producers to craft a collection of songs that showcase a vast range of styles and tones. Now, The Faim are back with their latest single, “Ease My Mind.”
“’Ease My Mind’ was written last year, during a very unpredictable period of my life,” Stephen shares about the writing process. “Unable to do the things that meant most to me, I found myself dealing with stress and emotions I'd never experienced. During this time, I was constantly looking for someone or something to lean on, and wrote Ease My Mind about processing and dealing with these emotions.”
“Easy My Mind” is the first taste of more new music to come very soon. The Faim have also been announced to play at a number of Festivals in 2022, including; Rock am Ring in Germany, Download Festival in England and Rock for People in the Czech Republic.
The Faim have built up a strong following around the world, from Australia to Europe to the States. They’ve performed at Download Festival, Slam Dunk, and Reading & Leeds, and toured with PVRIS, Against the Current, Sleeping With Sirens, and Andy Black. In 2018, The Faim performed 100 shows across three continents and 13 countries, while in 2019 the band embarked on their first headlining tour, selling out shows in cities like London, Sydney, Amsterdam and Hamburg. “Summer Is A Curse” has become a bona fide hit in Germany, hitting No. 12 on the airplay charts after being played 24,000 times on German radio in 2018. The track, which appears in a Jeep commercial in France, went on to be one of the most played songs on French radio in 2019 and 2020, being played a remarkable 150,000 times.
The band then expanded its reashing hitting No. 2 at radio in the Czech Republic. The band also scored the soundtrack to Coca-Cola's global advertising campaign for Coke Zero, which was shown in 18 countries worldwide. Overall, The Faim have racked up over 130 million streams globally – and that’s just the beginning.
The Faim have proven themselves as a group of musicians who are all about making genuine songs that bring people together and create a community.
“You’ll never get anything fake from us,” Stephen says. “Our hearts and souls are on our sleeves 100 percent of the time. We want to keep things true to how we started. We do this because we love music and we want to play music and that’s it. There are no ulterior motives. The goal is to play music and that will be the goal for our entire career.”
