Hometown: Victorville, CA (USA)

About:

It's impossible to talk about Face To Face without mentioning the rich legacy the band has left on the punk scene since frontman Trever Keith formed the band in Victorville, CA, over two decades ago. As the band has grown and developed, their fans have done so along with them. Now returning to their roots by playing the music from their first three records, including some songs that have never been performed live, the band has come full circle with their fans, back to where everything started.

Keith had this to say about revisiting the band's earliest material, "I think now is a great time to take a step back and enjoy the early music that has brought us here almost 25 years later. It's also a great way for some of our younger fans to familiarize themselves with our roots. As we begin writing on material for our ninth studio album, I think playing these songs again will inspire us to create a more 'old school' punk rock record. Sometimes taking a look back is the only way to move forward."

All of the pieces are falling into place and Face To Face has returned to the spotlight. When asked about his expectations for the next chapter of Face To Face's already incomparable career, Keith comments: "As long as people are still enjoying our music and it's still meaningful to them like it is to us, we're going to continue and never look back."
