On their forthcoming album ‘Still Life in Decay,’ Chicago’s FACS have never been more solid. The trio has been perfecting their brand of intense, cathartic art rock over their four ever-evolving albums, and ‘Still Life in Decay’ is their most focused effort. The apocalyptic chaos that once defined them is waved away in favour of an examination of events with cumbrous clarity. 

They have shared the album’s second single, Slogan; the song’s meditative guitar and ruminating rhythm section show the band at their peak. Bassist Alianna Kalaba, who stepped in for founding member Jonathan Van Herik in 2018, makes her amicable last stand on this album. Alongside drummer Noah Leger, they dance and twist around each other like a double helix, forming the DNA of what makes FACS so special. Watch the lyric video for Slogan via YouTube below.

Recorded by Sanford Parker at Chicago’s esteemed Electrical Audio, ‘Still Life In Decay’ will be available April 7, 2023 via Trouble In Mind Records.
