FAKE NAMES is a new punk rock group consisting of members Brian Baker (MINOR THREAT, DAG NASTY, BAD RELIGION), Michael Hampton (S.O.A., EMBRACE, ONE LAST WISH), Dennis Lyxzén (REFUSED, INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY, INVSN), och Johnny Temple (GIRLS AGAINST BOYS, SOULSIDE). The band will release their debut album on May 8th.
FAKE NAMES began to take shape as early as 2016 when Brian Baker and Michael Hampton met in Hampton's home in Brooklyn to play music together. Then there were no intentions of forming a band, but more might create a song or two. It ended with the two friends and guitarists writing a handful of songs that day and ended it all by spontaneously deciding to start a band.
Johnny Temple was then recruited as a bass player. He is also an old classmate of the two. Later that year, during Chicago's Riot Fest, they got the idea to bring in Dennis Lyxzén as a singer.
Their upcoming album is 28 minutes long, co-produced by Hampton and Geoff Sanoff and recorded in Renegade Studios (owned by Little Steven Van Zandt). The album should be filled with bare-bones breed of punk and a large dose of power-pop.
