"Rock doesn't get much better than this." - Brendan Russo's Black Coffee Hour, WSVA Radio.

"Favors for Favors- Throw in the Towel"

"On their own tiny budget, this band from Brooklyn records their EP Throw in the Towel which features a musical range from drug-induced one minute punk rock songs to melodic and experimental ballads.

Feeling a bit camera shy


In a generation of undefinable music, Favors For Favors stands to make a definitive mark for the first decade of the 21st century. With a mixture of progressive rock and raw punk, Favors For Favors spans many influences. From the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Blonde Redhead to Blur and My Bloody Valentine, Favors For Favors blends its retro alternative influences with the modern style of groups like Bloc Party, and Metric. The band feels that there are no limits to where they can go. Guitarist Keith Madden stated that, "While we hate hearing what we should do, we love hearing what people think we can't do. Nothing has driven us more than that."

Favors For Favors began as a project in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. The band started with just two members, Madden, and lead singer/guitarist Mike Multari. While writing songs with Keith, Mike was also beginning a project with drummer Andrew Vanette. In late 2004 the three of them decided to get together. They spent that entire winter writing and recording on a Lo-Fi 8-track recorder. By that time they had outgrown their basement residency and had enlisted Andrew's high school friend, Matt Walczak, to play bass. With the line-up complete, Favors For Favors did nothing but write and play shows in New York City and throughout the Tri-state area. They played at least once a week at venues including Don Hills, the Knitting Factory and the legendary CBGBs.

In the summer of 2005, Favors For Favors' desire to make records brought them off the New York City live scene and into the studio. The four independently produced their first EP, "Throw in the Towel," At the completion of the record, Favors For Favors quickly returned to performing live to promote the EP.

Now in 2006, Favors For Favors is going back into the studio to work on their second EP - it will undoubtly reflect the excitement of the last year and show how they have refined their sound since the band's conception.
