"We Are The Fury Better Off This Way"

Unhinged vocals and rampaging distortion run amok on this scorcher, a stand-out from Ohio's We Are the Fury. Think Guns N' Roses meets Bowie meets reckless abandon. - Entertainment Weekly


Glam rockers We Are The Fury are kicking off their tour this month with their new album Venus. The boys are going to be on the road with the legendary group The New York Dolls. Venus is their second record release and was finished in May of 2007.

This is by far their best album from the group. Each track on the record is catchy and the lyrics are amazingly clever. Everything that was done with the record was exactly what the band wanted in terms of the music style and their own creativity. Their sound is so awesome. This band has defiantly brought something unique to our listening pleasure.

We Are The Fury has come a long way from their hometown of Toledo, Ohio. They are fortunate to tour with well-known groups such as The Bravery and Silver Chair and are very honored to tour with such an influential band like the New York Dolls.

We Are The Fury don’t classify themselves to a particular genre. They do call themselves just a rock band, with major music influences, such as Iggy Pop, David Bowie, and Motley Crue. They all grew up listening to early ‘70s glam and punk music. It really inspired the band to create a sound that people just want to sing along to. “People rely too much on genre when it comes to music,” lead vocalist Jeremy Lublin says. “We continue to evolve, change and make music.” | RDW - Real Detroit

"'70s Glam plus indie rock equals big sexy time."

4 Stars
It's tempting to use lots of fancy words that start with "A" to describe We Are The Fury- amalgam, alloy, ambimusical (okay, we made those ones up)- but whatever words you use, there's no denying that WATF have seduced the postured kink of the late-'70s glam scene into a heavy petting session with modern, Casey Crescenzo-flavored indie rock. The result, WATF deliver a ha-uge album in Venus that's full of rock bigness. There's plenty of variety, all in the key of hipster fashionista sleaze- "Still Don't Know Your Name" boogies with baroom piano and sax, while "Close Your Eyes" is a bonafide power ballad. The big plus about WATF is they avoid drifting into overindulgent glam fanboyism by keeping one foot anchored in the 21st century at all times, making them at once a retro and modern rock act, which is a feat in and of itself. -Casey Lynch - Alternative Press

"Wham bam neo-glam, straight from the heart of Toledo. Free mp3!"

In concert and on record, Toledo’s We Are The Fury summon up a saucy slice of rock’s glitter-strewn past. Combining Ziggy-era Bowie, T. Rex, and the New York Dolls with contemporary sounds from the likes of Hot Hot Heat and Head Automatica, the band bridges the gap between ’70s glam rock and ’00s pop punk with their debut full-length, Venus (OneBigSpark/EastWest). The Fury’s style isn’t some fashionable forced fusion, however. “It’s just natural,” singer Jeremy Lublin explains. “I mean we're all in our early twenties and have grown up listening to a lot of popular music too, so we're kind of a hybrid in that sense—But ’70s glam is our main influence that we'll stand behind.” And they certainly have the sonic sass to back it up. The riffs are radio-ready, the beats are tight and dance-worthy, and Lublin’s vocals deftly combine the sweet and the sleazy with a fey yet powerful dose of hiccupy bravado. “Venus" opens the album with a bouncy, piano-driven invitation to the band’s hotel room, followed by the first single, “Now You Know,” which will effortlessly strut its way onto your playlists with its catchy hooks and over-the-top delivery heavy on the “Oh yeahs!”
In keeping with the ethos of glam rock, killer come-ons, backseat antics, and lovesick moaning inform most of the lyrical content on Venus. This, of course, leads inevitably to questions of backstage and bedside behavior. While the guys in the band do have their fun, Lublin is quick to confirm that rock ‘n’ roll comes first in the tried and true trio of sex, drugs, and rnr. “We’re here to make songs,” he says, “but we do drugs to make the songs better, and we have sex because we had too much fun at the rock ’n’ roll show and we need something else to do afterwards.” (Note that Lublin’s T. Rex song of choice for such an occasion would be “Telegram Sam,” because, despite the unsexy lyrics, “the groove is right!”).
But seriously, with instantly catchy songs like “Still Don’t Know Your Name,” “Camera Tricks,” and “Blue Coat, Black Hair,” this band is undoubtedly going places, and accessibility across genre lines is a big part of what’s going to get them there. From the Warped Tour to gigs alongside Jack’s Mannequin and Silverchair, The Fury’s diverse fan base is growing. “There’s not a band I think doing what we’re doing right now,” Lublin says. “But that’s fine for us, because we set out to make ourselves a little bit different and we’re fine playing in front of people who don’t totally get it, so we can bring them into our world.” On the whole, though, the reaction to the band has been notably positive. “We have fans who are 50 years old who are bringing their 15-year-old daughters to come see us,” Lublin boasts, “and both of them absolutely love it.”

"Artist to Watch: We Are the Fury"

There are plenty of "garage" bands on the scene, but few take the label as literally as the young men of Toledo, Ohio pop-punk out fit We Are The Fury. "We still live at home -- we make the rounds practicing in our parents' garages," confesses lead singer Jeremy Lublin, 24. Camping out at their ancestral homes has it perks, especially when the boys come home from being on tour for months at a time. "I still love coming home to my mom's cooking," says guitarist Chris Hatfield, 24. "But even though we're not in high school anymore, I still feel like I need to sneak inside at night when I've been out drinking." Thanks to five-plus years playing high schools and local clubs, WATF has secured a devoted following back home, and with release of their infectious debut album Venus, (out May 22), they're making a bid to kick certain high-charting emo bands out of the limelight. "There's still a lot of emotion in our songs," Lublin says. "But we're coming from a more fun approach. When you go to an emo show there's so much whining -- I can't guess why they're writing such depressing songs when backstage, they seem to be having more fun than we are."

SOUND A mix of late-80s cock rock bravado (shag haircuts and neck scarves included) and Freddie Mercury's fey-strut, capped off by Chris Hatfield's wily guitar riffs and Stephan Lublin's frenetic drumming (especially noteworthy, considering the younger Lublin, 21, was born with genetic condition that shortened his left arm and deprived him of a thumb).

DON'T MISS THE BUS: While in Austin for music fest South by Southwest this year, Hatfield ended up ditched by his band mates at 3am, drunk and without a clue of where they were staying. "We have a rule," says Lublin. "If you're 20 minutes late, we leave you." The hapless guitarist ran up a $180 taxi bill trying to find a hotel with an available room. Finally, his friendly cabbie took pity on him. "He dropped me off at his house so I could sleep," says Hatfield. "Then he only charged me for half the fare."


The first single off Venus is a stomping, piano-tinkling glam fest that simultaneously preens and thrashes.

WHERE TO HEAR IT: Hit up the band's MySpace page or their official website to hear more tracks. You can also catch WATF opening for Men, Women and Children now, or get a glimpse of their set when they join the Warped Tour this summer.

"The young, cute lead singer, Jeremy Lublin, answers 5 stupid gay questions."

The winsome, young Jeremy Lublin was kind enough to field our inaugural round of “5 Stupid Gay Questions For…”—which is soon to become a regular (and surely much-loved, highly anticipated) feature of The Feed. Jeremy’s the lead singer of We Are the Fury, a Toledo, OH–bred indie-rock quintet that we totally wanted to hate—you know, cuz they’re really young, totally cute, annoyingly witty and they wear lots of makeup—but, as it turns out, they’re really, really good. And Jeremy came through with flying gay colors—he even throws in a blowjob reference. Well done!

What’s the last thing you’d want someone to say about your music?
That it’s okay. I would rather people love it to death or hate it. Luckily, it seems that most of the people who’ve heard us love us or hate us. I just don’t want anyone on the fence. I just don’t want to bore people. I would rather incite people one way or another than have someone pass us off.

What’s the best song on the album to have sex to?
“You’re My Halo.” I wrote it while getting head, literally. True, it’s a bit softer, but I think that’s okay sometimes.

What are your gayest musical influences? Your straightest?
Gayest would have to be Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals. I grew up with a lot of that. Also, I think a lot of ’70s and ’80s pop like Elton John and Billy Joel. I think people would expect me to say Bowie, Marc Bolan, Queen and maybe The Rocky Horror Picture Show. To be honest, I think Freddie Mercury and Dr. Frank-N-Furter would be some of my straightest influences. Bowie might be mostly straight, but Freddie definitely has way more machismo; so does Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Even though he was in total drag, he still managed to be ultra-macho.

Who is your ultimate personal style icon?
My mother.

How far do you take this whole ’70s glam androgyny thing? You look the part, but will it really be complete until you end up in bed with Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz (à la Jagger and Bowie)?
So, Pete Wentz is akin to Mick Jagger, is he? I don’t know about that, but I will take this as far as it needs to go! Maybe “I fucked Pete Wentz” would look all right on T-shirt.

We Are The Fury is rock n' roll the way it should be done; loud, flamboyant and in your face. In a music world where most bands are trying to fit in, WATF makes a conscious effort to stand out. Influenced by mainly early 70's glam, british rock, and the early punk days, WATF continues to provide a different variety of what pop music is today. Since the bands inception, they have toured extensively with such acts as Silverchair, Head Automatica, Electric Six, Men Women and Children, Warped Tour, Action Action, and the legendary New York Dolls. They have also played numerous music festivals including SXSW, CMJ, and Bamboozle to name a few. The band is currently in the studio recording a follow up for their critically acclaimed debut record "Venus." Their new album (still untitled) is expected to be finished early fall 2008.
