Failure are currently seeking 1990s live footage for a new documentary. If fans have any clips they wish to contribute, they can send them to email@example.com. The band commented:
“As most of you know we are hard a work on our next album while simultaneously there is a documentary being made about the band. Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot of vintage 90’s footage of the band, LA scene, bars, the city, etc.. basically anything 90’s and Los Angeles, so we have an ask for you guys. If anyone has any footage that fits this description could you please send a copy to us. It is important to document our surroundings back then in this film. Thank you in advance and thank you for all of your support for the band. (send it to firstname.lastname@example.org)”
Failure have premiered a new video for their new song “Dark Speed.” This track is from their new EP “In The Future,” which was released today (March 30). That effort is the first in a series of three new EPs. A new full-length album will follow the series in the fall. The video was directed by the band’s own Ken Andrews and it stars David Dastmalchian.

Failure have announced that they will release a new EP titled “In The Future” on March 30. That effort will be the first in a series of three new EPs. A new full-length album will follow the series in the fall.
“In The Future” Track Listing:
01. “Dark Speed”
02. “Paralytic Flow”
04. “Segue 10“
Bassist Greg Edwards commented:
“Living inside a screen seems like absolute freedom sometimes, but It’s more like a kind of psychic decapitation. We have made aliens of our bodies. We exist in an era where the most primitive structures in our brains are being rewarded and controlled, almost constantly, by extremely sophisticated, interconnected, and self-perpetuating technologies.
There seems to be no imaginable way, or real desire, to moderate this. Artificial Intelligence may be creating itself right beneath our noses and using our bodies as unaware hosts. Everything is talking to everything else but there’s no communication anymore. Only divisions and their promotion.
The surrogate reality of the internet sucks us out of our own bodies and puts us in a space where we can imagine we have less and less resemblance to the creatures we actually are. The forthcoming three eps and full-length album, explore the ambivalence inspired by this dislocation.”
Failure have hit the studio to start the recording process for their new album. The band shared the below photo:
