Stress Kills: Weekend Playlist By Faux Ferocious

by | Apr 19, 2019 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag drops an absolutely amazing playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This time around we’re getting sounds from Faux Ferocious, a Nashville-based rock n’ roll group with a bit of that good ol’ postpunk tension thrown in there as well as plenty of rip-roaring yet catchy tunes. They just released their latest album, Pretty Groovy, on Burger Records, and will be hitting town next Thursday, the 25th, to rock Shockoe Bottom at Wonderland.

To tide you over til then, we’ve got an excellent playlist assembled just for you by the Faux Ferocious boys to launch you into your weekend! If you dig the endless groove, they’ve got plenty of that in store for you, as well as a killer live Miles Davis recording to kick things off, and a bonus tune from legendary “blue-collar golfer” John Daly. This one is gonna be a blast.

Press play, Virginia.
