The Faim came into existence as naturally as their music. The Australian group met while in high school in Perth, Australia. In the summer of 2016, the four-piece noticed that producer John Feldmann had posted a call on Instagram for unsigned bands with touring experience. Although the group had never toured before, they messaged him anyway, sending a long message about their deep dedication to music. Feldmann wrote back a few weeks later and everything instantly went from zero to a hundred.

The Faim unveiled their debut EP, Summer Is a Curse, last year via BMG, along with four stellar singles, “Saints of the Sinners,” “Midland Line,” “Summer Is a Curse,” and “A Million Stars.” Since then, the outfit has seen massive growth across their digital platforms, racking up over 20 million total global streams and clocking over 13 million on “SIAC.” They’ve also toured exhaustively worldwide, supporting PVRIS, Sleeping With Sirens, Against The Current, Lower Than Atlantis, The Dangerous Summer, Hands Like Houses, and PVMNTS, and playing European festival staples including Reading & Leeds, Slam Dunk, and more. Each evening onstage, they aim to connect with every single person in the room to build a deeply personal fanbase.
The Faim’s early success is evidence of the importance of belief and hard work, and what it means when you’re willing to make sacrifices for your art. The band is currently working on their debut album, which is slated for release later this year.
