Faith of the Damned was conceived in late 2000 in Gauley Bridge West Virginia. The band immediately started performing at venues around West Virginia, Oh, Penn., N.C., and Myrtle Beach,SC. From the very beginning, the group was filling venues with crowds that, often, were over capacity. At the very first show, fans packed themselves in to see the band's unique and energized stage performance and continued to do so.
In 2001, Faith of the Damned
was signed to an independent record label from central Oh, and cut their first album, titled On the Plane Between Heaven and Hell. The album received radio play across the country as well as in Europe. Unfortunately, tragedy struck when front man, John Harvey
was involved in a near fatal automobile accident. As a result, it was unclear for some time whether Harvey
would ever recover enough to play or perform live.
After 18 months of physical theropy and years of reconditioning, Harvey's determination and unwillingness to succumb paid off. In early 2009, Faith of the Damned
was reformed when Harvey reconnected with long time friend and fellow musician, Bunky Moore. Together, they were joined by mutual friend and drummer, Chris Gill . As a result of the three's reunited chemistry, both as friends and as band mates,Faith of the Damned
was reborn. In August of 2009, the group entered into negotiations with a promotional company that had showed interest in their potential. In early September 2009, Faith of the Damned
was signed to PalinDrome Records L.L.C.. The band is currently working on their second album, Serenity In Damnation, which is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2011 released under the label, Palindrome Records L.L.C.. Show and tour dates will be scheduled leading up to and following the album's release.
Faith of the Damned's
music has a dark, underlying tone while speaking of situations and problems that many people want to hide from, or do not wish to speak of. To understand what this band is about, you have to examine what the name means. Anyone who has ever been shunned, abused, exploited, judged, deemed unwanted or unworthy and cast aside by the so-called "righteous" or "upstanding" members of society as a result of hypocritical standards for the way people should be, find themselves dubbed the "damned". They do not fit the standards set forth and dictated by the prominant "righteous". These people of the "damned", however, are the ones that show and inspire true faith in the human condition. They are the ones that show true compassion for the suffering, they give of themselves without question or promise, andthey are the ones who reach a helping hand to those too weak or scared to reach out for themselves. They do this without condition or regard for appearance, background, name, or status. It is written that "this" is what the faithful and righteous should TRULY be, thus the name, Faith of the Damned
