This has certainly been the case for Louisville, KY-based metal band FLAW. The band has seen multiple line-up changes over the years, however the core of Chris Volz (vocals) and Jason Daunt (guitar) remain as the creative driving force of poised to re-emerge on the strength of their finest set of recordings to date. The band has signed a deal with Pavement Entertainment, and is set to release Divided We Fall on August 19, 2016.
FLAW’s story began with the independent release of home-grown albums American Arrogance (1996), Flaw (1998) and Drama (2000). It was the songs on these recordings that garnered the attention of Universal Republic Records, who signed the band and released the break-through Through The Eyes in 2001. The offering topped the Billboard "Heatseekers" chart, largely fueled by the singles "Payback" and "Whole." The band then followed-up with an album entitled Endangered Species via Republic in 2004, but soon thereafter the band went through personnel changes and ended their relationship with the label. The band’s tumultuous relationship with themselves, and their label, were reflected in their songs. It was the life and energy captured in these songs that propelled the band forward. It was always FLAW fans’ connection to their songs that carried the band on. “We would not be where we are today without our hardcore fans,” says Volz. “The Flaw Family is the backbone of everything we do, and we cannot wait to get out and tour in support of this new record”.
FLAW a band that is re-emerging on the strength of renewed focus and energy, and that energy is captured on the lead single from “Divided We Fall”, a song called “Live and Breathe” that is a vessel of raw human experience and emotion. The band has waited 12 years to release a proper album, to rally and come together. They trust that together, FLAW can accomplish great things, and their fans are poised and ready to answer the call.
Curtis and Johnny opted to go in a new direction and started a new band called Lips of Velvet, bringing in Curtis's brother Kary as the drummer. Kary's drum skills brought a whole new sound to the band opening up a lot of new ideas. Curtis loves being the front man and he gives the audience the performance any good lead singer should. With Curtis picking up the lead vocal role, the bass duties went to Johnny, as well as the background vocals.
Curtis, Johnny, and Kary were eager to have their good friend Colton Bishop join the band and eventually Colton joined them as the lead guitarist and provided additional back ground vocals. Colton is a extremely skilled guitar player who builds his own guitars in his spare time, and plays the same guitars on stage.
With Colton on board, the line up was complete and VAGRANT was formed. They are a close knit band with heart felt dedication to each other and the band. Even though Curtis and Kary are brothers by birth, the four of them are true brothers at heart.
As of February 2012 the band added Brandon Wall as their rhythm guitarist. Brandon is a long time friend that not only was a big fan of the band, but was a great supporter as well. Brandons guitar skills have brought a new fuller sound to the band, which in turn also allows Colton more time to play some lead riffs in the songs. Brandon has been a part of the DFW music scene for quite somitetime, and fits in with the bands attitude and personality perfectly.
After a 2 year hiatus to deal with personal issues, the band decided it was time to evolve into a heavier more modern sound. They decided to put their old school rock sound aside to pursue a heavier genre leaving behind the name Vagrant and the old songs. Reinventing themselves as The Drop Deadlys
The band is just as close knit now as they ever were. If you have not been able to make it out to see the show you are in for a full set of awesome original metal.
Come join the ever growing crowd of Dead Beats!
