This Friday, the only lining up and shopping you should be doing would definitely have to be for tickets to The Faim concert in Boston.

Australian band The Faim will be sharing the spotlight with bands Emarosa, Hands Like Houses and Devour The Day at Brighton Music Hall on their scheduled tour stop.

Made up of four members; lead vocalist Josh Raven, guitarist Sam Tye, bassist and keyboardist Stephen Beerkens and drums and percussionist Sean Tighe. The four-piece band released their anticipated Summer is a Curse EP earlier this year featuring singles such as “Midland Lane” and a cover of “One Way or Another.” They found an explosion of success following the popularity of their John Feldmann-produced and Pete Wentz, of Fall Out Boy fame, co-written track “Saints of the Sinners.” 

Coming all the way from Perth, Western Australia, The Faim are excited to be touring around the U.S. Already the band has gotten good vibes and love from their American fans. Tye said it has always been a dream of theirs to do a road trip around the US and they are happy to be here. He said people are very passionate about songs and their live shows after previously only playing a few acoustic shows in the U.S.

“When you’re together on the road for a while, you start to really appreciate life and what you’re doing,” Tye said. “Our shows and the fans keep us motivated.”

Achieving a wider audience is what The Faim aspires to do while in the United States. Success for them is being able to do what they love all the time and being on the road. No amount of money or no amount of that materialistic or artificial things could determine their success. Tye said the future for The Faim is continuing to talk, to reach a lot of audiences and to be diverse.

“Just doing what you love and being with friends is the definition of success,” he said.

Music today isn’t limited to an age or gender. People have the ability to listen to anything from any time period. Especially in a time where more music outlets and forms of media exist. Be it music from the 80’s or 90’s, it will always be accessible in some form. Tye said their goal in music to last the years.

“We really want our music to be timeless and to translate all generations” 

Having that Austrailian accent in America is one of the benefits to the hearts and ears of many fans out there, and The Faim has got it all in the bag. The band makes their stop in Boston this Friday at 7 p.m. They’re itching to get out there and start playing so be sure to get your tickets. Doors open at 6 p.m. !
