Still working on that hot first release.



Faith in the Fallen create inspired, original music that ROCKS HARD.  Period.

We are 5 individuals with over 100 years of experience playing music live in Chicago and across the country.   Based in Chicago / Chicago's Southland FITF we have access to the entire Chicagoland / Northwest Indiana region and are working to expose audiences to our unique / catchy brand of hard rock music.   

As Faith in the Fallen we have been playing and writing since 2010.  We released our first EP "Fallen" in December of 2010.  However, we experienced an extended hiatus searching for a new drummer and lead guitar player throughout most of 2012.  Our current lineup has only been playing as a full unit since January 2013.  In that time, FITF has recorded / released two EPs, which include a live stripped down version of many of our songs called, "The Wetness" and our most recent EP, "Miracle" which includes the title track, Diabolical, Creature of Habit and Miles Away.

FITF has been interviewed, played and featured on multiple occasions as part of the show Homegrown Tones on the Southland's Rock Animal, 105.5 The Kat based in Kankakee, IL. We've also been on regular rotation on internet based radio shows including AudioKult and The Forge. 

Faith in the Fallen's single, "Fallen" is the featured theme song for the Web Movie Series, the Adventures of Buck Rydell, an MMA based comedy series.  

About the Members:

Guy Schingoethe: Your chunky MC for the evening.  A trained professional actor and Second City improviser that knows how to connect with an audienceor at least piss off a few boyfriends.   And youll be pleasantly surprised to hear that he can sing too.  Melodically ballsy with some hooks on the side.

James Pape, Lead Guitar  / Back Up Vocals: Prepare for a space launch, because you have never seen a guy shred like this unless you paid for a ticket at All State Arena.  With his playing style is inspired by Van Halen, Dream Theater, Steve Vai, among others, Jim's lead guitar adds its own voice into the mix.

Dan Dobbertin, Rhythm Guitar: One of the Founding Members of Faith in the Fallen responsible for bringing the current line up together.  Dan lays a solid rhythm and takes a lot of inspiration from bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Coheed and C ambria,  Creed,and Alter Bridge. 

Scott Guzik, Bass / Back Up Vocals:  The other founding member bringing broad shouldered bass lines that provides the backbones.  Scott brings a country sensibility to his playing style and introduces the low-end to your soul.

Charles Bacani, Drums: Rounding out FITF's lineup is Charles.  A punk / metal inspired drummer that blazes the trail for all of the band's original music.   His foundation gets hearts thumping with an intense backbeat and death defying fills.

When you are looking for an experienced, professional, polished band with original music that gets feet tapping, heads banging, panties dropping, and bar crowds rocking add Faith in the Fallen to the bill.     20 to 75 minute sets of original songs at their fingertips and cover songs available if you want em to mix it up a bit.
