Just got back from the Youth Of Today / Mouthpiece West Coast trip and although I don't have enough time to post a complete wrap up of the trip tonight, I wanted to at least post this video. It's Fraud from their first show at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA on 6/6/2011.
I shot this video of their last song in their set on my iPhone and thought it came out cool enough to use here on DCXX. In case you haven't heard, Fraud is a brand new band consisting of Alex Barreto (Chain Of Strength, Statue) on vocals, Paul "Frosty" Hertz (Chain Of Strength, Man Will Surrender) on guitar, Andy Alvarez (Pushed Aside, Against The Wall) on guitar, Shaun Ross (Excel) on bass and Derrick Hostetter (Rough Breaks) on drums.
Considering the fact that I hadn't even heard of the band until a week before the shows, I really had no idea what to expect. Once I started asking around a little bit and hearing little bits and pieces of who was in the band and what they sounded like, I can honestly say that I gotta pretty damn excited to check them out. Of course once I finally got to see them, there was absolutely no let down and I was completely impressed to say the least. Always great to come across a brand new band that blows you away like these guys did for me.
So keep your eyes and ears open for future shows and recordings and see if you can't party with this one. -Tim DCXX
