Fate Under Fire is an alternative rock band that formed in the summer of 2008 by singer/songwriter David James. Music had always been a huge part of David's life, but after a significant loss, he turned to music as a release and began to pursue his life long dream.
Fate Under Fire had spent the first few months writing new material and playing shows around their home town of Sacramento. They released their first 4 song EP 'The Simple Things' in the spring of 2009, which they self produced and recorded at James' home studio. They signed with Right Brain Management just prior to the release of their CD and with the help of Right Brain, they embarked on their first west coast tour.
Upon returning home, they were offered a spot to compete in the Sacramento State University Battle of the Bands. One requirement was to play at least one cover song. Being fans of hip-hop and dance music in general, the guys decided to cover a song by Soulja Boy Tell Em called 'Kiss Me Thru the Phone". The song has been pretty popular and has started a buzz around Fate Under Fire.
During this time James met fellow musician, John Gillis. James and Gillis instantly clicked, and have been the heartbeat of the band ever since. Since this partnership the band has grown their presence online and in person. More recently, after finding a breath of fresh air in their music journey, they released a music video for their latest song, On The Water.
More recently the band has taken a stand against cancer, sickness, and other injustice. Fate Under Fire doesn't want to be about merely playing music. The band wants to be actively involved in non-profits, like People Against Cancer, Juice for the Cure, Compassion Int'l, Lifewater Int'l, and others. FUF is specifically passionate about alternative medicine. Illness is at an all time high in the United States, and a lot of that is due to the our culture. FUF wants to actively help people, not just on an emotional level, but on a physical level too. Please contact us for more info on fighting sickness with common sense, and other great causes.
They are currently planning collaborations and choosing producers for their next EP. More recently Fate Under Fire has begun working with a new manager from Upline Entertainment, with previous work at Warner Brothers/Chappell Records and Atlantic Records. The growing team are in the process of planning summer tours for 2012.
