Phoenix based Reggae/Punk/Latin band, Fayuca, is gearing up for their highly anticipated sophomore studio album. After three years of touring and promoting their latest release, The Assassination,, Fayuca is now ready for some down time in the studio. With the return of Cisco, Fayuca’s original bass player, and Rafael’s health up to par, The band is excited to give fans their most accomplished release up to date.
Gathering inspiration from role-models and road buddies: Authority Zero, BadFish, Ballyhoo!, 311 and Iration, Fayuca will join forces with producer, Ricardo Lozano (Cosmic Soup Recording) and manager, Matt Epp (Silver Surfer Vaporizers) to compose a face-melting compilation of heart, soul and rock & roll. With line up changes, label break-ups and battling with their drummers health, The band is grateful to have all three original members back on board and in flawless physical condition.
Drummer, Rafael Ruiz was forced to sit out for Fayuca’s summer tour with Ballyhoo! due to an emergency surgery which possibly saved his drumming career. After years of hernia belts and icing down after shows, Raf was emitted into a local-Phoenix hospital in early July and is currently recovering from a hernia surgery.
The band will spend most of their time writing and recording their newest material, while limiting their tours to the Southwest and Southern California regions. Who knows what direction the band may lead now that the Raf is at his full health and potential, all original member are back in the band and Gabriel chopped off his curly little locks; the possibilities are endless!
You can find Fayuca inside The Pier store featured on the Sense Boardwear’s 4th Volume Compilation Diamonds In The Ruff with an early recorded version of the song Dirty Girl. You can view this compilation by clicking HERE
