"When we broke up, we always said that we'd play music together again if it ever made sense,” says The Felix Culpa’s Marky Hladish. “We all still have this need to create, and none of us wanted to start over. We had the chance, but we all felt like this band was home. Even though we're physically separated by half a country, the songwriting has never come easier."
It’s been well worth the wait too. After three years on hiatus The Felix Culpa has returned reinvigorated to their three-piece roots with two new raw and honest songs with Foreign Tongues contributing an additional set of songs for the upcoming split as well.
The Felix Culpa was founded in Rockford, IL in 2003 and went on to release a string of EPs, Ancoro Imparo EP (2002), THOUGHTCONTROLEP/DVD (2005) and SoSo Remission EP (2009) and two full-length albums, Commitment (2004) and Sever Your Roots (2010). While active the band performed alongside bands like Balance and Composure, O’Brother and The Dear Hunter among others.
The band will also make their return to the stage this summer at the Wicker Park Fest in Chicago on July 26th, followed by select tour dates this fall.
