The best kept secret in music


"Future 86 Review"

Excessive, catchy, straight out of the gates…wails like Bif Naked with an education in raunchy glam metal, and the band’s back up vocals give the songs a bit of fist in the air punch. Taking equal inspiration from L.A. Guns and Led Zeppelin, this band has a clear knowledge of classic rock n’ roll, and play thusly. - Long Island Entertainment

"Future 86 Review"

A knock-you-out blast of hard hitting, pop-slanted rock and roll… Courtney belts out these made for arena numbers with sexy and sultry sass supreme… an achingly perfect rhythm section and hellishly slick guitar riffs, each tune is laden with enough hooks and power to lock you in for the long ride. A stadium sized dose of pop punch. - Candy for Bad Children

"Future 86 Review"

(Future 86) is a four piece power pop unit out of Queens, who mix hard rock chords with smart riffs and hooks that offer you no choice but to bang your head and grind against the closest warm body… While so many bands are waxing morbidly in the darkness, these rockers from the forgotten borough have rediscovered that lost art and potential of straight ahead rock n’ roll. - Good Times Magazine

"Future 86 Review"

If they were given a major label budget to record a follow-up I guarantee that there would be talk of Gwen Stefani part two. - Smother.net

"Future 86 Review"

Hard rock is usually dismissed as a passing fancy, yet Pretty Suicide's infectious melodies and sultry baby girl delivery make the four-song sampler a sought after commodity. - Aural Fix

"Future 86 Review"

The radiant vocalist wailed on covers of ACDC’s “TNT” and especially on Pat Benetar’s “Heartbreaker”; the latter being a very difficult song if you don’t have the right range. But Courtney certainly pulls it off impressively, and her voice soars on the band’s originals as well…Nothing will stop these talented guys and gal from reaching a growing legion of fans. - Long Island Entertainment

"Future 86 Review"

Seven tracks of gutter style hard rock, with a female fronted vocal and a badass guitar leading the charge. - 3:16 Productions

"Radical Record's New York City Rock N' Roll Compilation Disc"

The catchiest song is (Future 86’s) "Should’ve Said Goodbye," a perky kiss-off that rocks like Letters to Cleo on a Mötley Crüe kick. - Boston Phoenix

"Future 86 Review"

“Should’ve Said Goodbye” by (Future 86) is another song not to be missed. The guitar-work is phenomenal. - Crusher Magazine


Future 86's current disc is titled "Afterparty". MP3s can be found either on www.future86music.com or www.myspace.com/future86


Feeling a bit camera shy


While most bands play songs about their misfortune and life's miseries, Future 86 has come to party. This rock band is about youth and their music carries a fresh and unpredictable pop sensibility that has serious mass appeal. They aren't complicated and they don't whine. The Future 86 vision is clear: just create music that keeps you up all night with infectiously memorable tunes and a rebellious spirit. They are the perfect party band with a sound that doesn't ask, but demands, that you get up and rock.

Courtney fronts the band, while Vache, Larry and Armand anchor a sound in which distinctive hard guitar driven melodies and Courtney's classically high powered vocals effortlessly compete for your attention. There's a certain ostentatious and perpetually adolescent appeal of a band that sings about the tour buses, private jets, motorcycles and celebrity girlfriends they don't have. Barebones rock and roll was never meant to concern itself with much more anyway. With songs titled, "I Want it All" and "Give it To Me", they know what they want, how to get it and how to give it.

Maybe it was playing sold-out shows at CBGB's in their hometown of NYC, or maybe it was playing a packed show at the Whisky a Go-Go in West Hollywood that contributed to the band's good humored arrogance, but make no mistake, they earn it. Today's trend of pop-punk often lacks that "give it to me" rock and roll spirit leaving audiences wanting more..... and Future 86 delivers.

They wear their jeans a little tight. They play their music a little loud. They get a little crazy, and they have fun doing it. They are four very driven, very unpredictable, very different personalities with an arsenal of juvenile delinquent fist pumping rock, looking for a party wherever they go. If a party can't be found, they'll start one, and make sure it isn't over until someone's passed out in the bathtub. Their recently completed album, appropriately titled "After Party", with crunchy power cords, bold choruses, and unforgettable melodies topped off with a layer of commercial sheen, combines all the essential elements of Rock, Pop, and Punk, and makes it clear that Future 86 has an Appetite to Party which rivals Guns 'n Roses Appetite for Destruction.

The band is currently taking steps to target the college music scene and is also seeking the right label to partner with to provide promotional support and distribution of their recently completed title.
