Rock trio Failure team up with Swervedriver for a big night at 9:30 Club on Thursday, March 28.
In 2018, Failure took a clever route to releasing the group’s latest album, In the Future Your Body Will Be the Furthest Thing from Your Mind. The band released three EPs over the course of the year — In the Future, in March; Your Body Will Be, in May; The Furthest Thing, in September. Failure then published the final album in November via PIAS.

Since forming in 1990, the influential Los Angeles trio – Ken Andrews (vocals, guitar, bass, programming), Greg Edwards (vocals, guitar, bass, keys), and Kellii Scott (drums) have released five studio albums. After publishing the first three, the band broke up in 1997 but then reunited in 2013.
“The unexpected thing about releasing the record in quadrants and writing as we went was that it actually inspired me to be more cohesive lyrically,” Greg said. “In the beginning of the process, I mentioned a theme of spiritual decapitation through technology without giving too much thought to remaining faithful to it. I found by the time the final four songs were written and complete, the downtime between writing and recording had allowed me to really flesh out this initial controlling idea from a number of perspectives.”
