"Fahrenheit 43 are married to the music, for better or for worse, but that's what makes it so perfect! That kind of passion is intoxicating, and it's something we could all use a little more of. These guys are doing big
things, mark my words" - Laura Christovich (LOUDER)

Fahrenheit 43 are an Australian Pop Rock band formed in 2008 by lead vocalist Richard James & drummer, Alwin “Elmo” Laysico. The band was originally intended to be a way to have some fun & form solid, real relationships with each other & those around them. In 2009, bassist Grant Young & guitarist Sparty Lagumay
completed the lineup.

The name Fahrenheit 43 itself is a play on words as 43 degrees Fahrenheit, when converted to degrees Celsius becomes 6 degrees. And although slightly scientific in its delivery, F43 are a proven representation of the ?six degrees of seperation' theory. As each member have a connection to each other whether it be thru family, mutual friends & other musical projects. The band recorded their very first EP – The Six Degrees EP in 2009 with single ?Angels Lullaby' being featured on Fox FM's Radar Radio segment as well as the band winning the public vote on Nova 100's ?I Am With The Band' competition, earning the band a $2000 cash prize & a showcase for the who's who of Melbourne's Music Industry.

The bands big break came in 2010 when they were invited to join iconic US band ?The Gin Blossoms' on their arena tour of the Philippines. The band played 12 shows, including a memorable performance at the sold out 18,000 seat, Araneta Colisseum, an achievement the band are particularly proud of. From complete unknowns to multiple radio appearances, TV appearances & an entertaining showcase at the Philippine Big Brother house, which showed a lighter, funnier side to the band.

Underneath The Overturned' is Fahrenheit 43's first LP, produced engineered & mixed by US producer Paul Leavitt from Valencia Recording studios & mastered by Michael Fossenkemper at TurtleTone Studios in New York.
After their tour of the Philippines, the band wanted to quickly
capitalise on their newfound popularity & record a full-length
album. Interest was starting to come from far & wide with renown Canadian Producer, Jeff Dawson; responsible for Daniel Powter's #1 smash hit – ?Bad Day' & and also Jim Wirt who has produced popular US acts such as, Jack's Mannequin & The Rocket Summer. Expressed their interest in producing the bands debut album. Locally, the band were close to securing a deal with Melbourne producer Dave Carr, but chose to settle with Paul as he had-in the past, produced some of F43's favourite bands (The Dangerous Summer / All Time Low / Senses Fail). The band were particularly buoyed by the interest shown in them by Paul & in June 2011, flew him to Melbourne to record the band in state-of-the-art facility, Oaklands Record Studios.

The band chose to release ?Freedom For The Fallen' as the lead single for the album. One can't help but notice quite a considerable jump from ?Angels Lullaby' & The Six Degrees EP'. “We wanted to make an album that was easy to listen to, but something that was thought provoking & deep. We wanted to be uplifting both musically & lyrically. Music should help you shake off the black cloud that follows us around, not help us brood in self hate”, says Lead vocalist Richard James when asked about the
making of the album.

The album is set for a release in late 2012.

Fahrenheit 43 are also keen supporters of various political andsocial organisations. They are official ambassadors of Destiny Rescue & have also performed at the 2010 Make Poverty History forum.
In August 2010, their song ?The Reason' was featured on the
worldwide UNICEF website to coincide with World Humanitarian Day.
