At their concert at The Republic, Failure played their often forgotten hits as well as well as songs from their newest album, The Heart Of A Monster. The Los Angeles band sounds like they were based in the grunge scene in Seattle during the same time as Nirvana, Soundgarden, and fellow bands of the sort. Over the years, Failure, formed in 1992, has made a hybrid grunge style that adds a flavor to the genre. They played "Stuck On You," their biggest radio hit which brought the fans into a craze.
The "American-alternative" band has four albums and covered all the bases on Saturday. They played some of their singles from their 2015 album,"Come Crashing," "The Focus," "Hot Traveler", and then went into their classics such as "The Nurse Who Loved Me," "Smoking Umbrellas," "Sargent Politeness," and many more. I may have been the youngest person in the crowd but that didn't stop me from having a blast. When they played "Saturday Savior" from their 1996 hit album, Fantastic Planet prior to their hiatus, the second half of the concert started into a continuum of head banging nostalgia lasting to the end of the encore.
