Members Scott Lawlor and Adam Schalke from Los Angeles based grunge/psychedelic/pop rock band The Future Exes believe music is best when it comes from the heart.

The guys saw Dave Grohl’s documentary Sound City and couldn’t agree more with the message. Rock has been crippled in the last decade by auto-tune and excessive editing, resulting in a watered down product that appeals to the lowest common denominator to maximize profits.

As a response, they decided to jam and record the 1st ideas that came to mind. After the first pass of drums and guitar were laid down, they would then layer bass and additional instruments on top. A few hours later, a song was born.

The Future Exes debut EP ‘First Thought’ will feature 5 of the songs written and recorded in this raw and spontaneous manner. If you like Alice In Chains, Clutch, and Pink Floyd, do yourself and check out the band that has been dubbed “A ‘must check out’ for any TRUE fan of rock and roll”.
