New Single "Stray"

THE FATAL FLAW proudly present our latest triumph ... the smash hit single "Stray."

Stray Cover

It's an up-tempo number about fidelity, and about accepting that fidelity can never be coerced or obtained through duress. You know, typical uplifting lyrical content from yours truly!

You can now stream or download this bad boy to your heart's content, and FREE OF CHARGE to boot:
thefatalflaw.bandcamp.com

Our new track is also available as part of the Keep Safe Boston 2014 Compilation put together by Anngelle Wood of Boston Emissions: a pay-what-you-can digital compilation, with proceeds benefiting the Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts.

Boston Does Boston Benefit!

Hello, True Believers!

Boston_Does_Boston

I imagine that things have seemed a tad quiet on the ol' Fatal Flaw front recently, but rest assured that we've been plenty busy behind the scenes -- since our last update, we've had two childbirths (bringing the grand total of band offspring to a robust three) and an engagement to celebrate. Hooray!

While all of that is nice enough, I'm pleased to announce the existence of the only thing we can all agree is truly important in this crazy, mixed-up world: at long last, another local rock show.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17th
BOSTON DOES BOSTON BENEFIT SERIES
@ TT the Bear's
(10 Brookline St, Cambridge, MA)
  • w/ Cask Mouse
  • The Rationales
  • Muy Cansado
  • The Daily Pravda
  • (The Fatal Flaw will play at 9:30 pm)
Local Boston artists covering one another's music, all to benefit the Animal Rescue League.
8pm Doors | 18+ | $10 | TICKETS | FACEBOOK EVENT

Check out that stellar line-up, you guys! We're very proud to be taking part, especially with proceeds going to such a worthy cause. We'll be performing a set of our own songs, plus debuting our take on the Spirit Kid classic "Slow It Down." We can't wait!

On a more personal note, this is my first performance with The Fatal Flaw since undergoing major lung surgery in late 2013, so I'm especially excited to be back in action. Hope to see you there!

Best,

MIX TAPE 1991

mixtape I was alive and I waited, waited. I was alive and I waited for this. MIXTAPE is back.

Picture it. 1991. Your 80s-flavored cassingles (Color Me Badd! Bryan Adams! Paula Abdul! C+C Music Factory! Boyz II Men!) sat side by side with CD longboxes (longboxes!) of everything 90s (Nirvana! Soundgarden! Pumpkins! Teenage Fanclub!). Stalwarts like U2, REM, and Metallica put out seminal albums, Lollapalooza was launched, Donnie Wahlberg set his hotel room on fire, and everyone was doing the Bartman. It was kind of a quietly – and weirdly – brilliant year for music.

Featuring the aforementioned music and so much more, as performed by:

  • The Field Effect
  • The Fatal Flaw
  • Joe Turner and the Seven Levels
  • and opening mini-sets from The Friends of Mixtape

Saturday, May 11th at Radio
$10, 21+, doors at 8pm, Music at 9pm

Spoiler: No one is doing “More Than Words.” You’re welcome.
