Chicago trio FACS have announced their second release, Lifelike, is set for release March 29 via Trouble in Mind Records. Comprised of former Disappears members Brian Case & Noah Leger alongside longtime friend Alianna Kalaba (Cat Power, We Ragazzi), FACS occupy a liminal space bordering the realms of art-rock, shoegaze, industrial music, and post-rock, applying minimalism and spaciousness in service of stark, foreboding compositions.

Lifelike adds a melodic sensibility to the greyscale post-punk aesthetic established on their 2018 debut album Negative Houses without sacrificing any of their punishing sonic heft characteristic of their live shows (accurately captured by recording engineer Jeremy Lemos at Electrical Audio and brought to visceral life via John Congleton’s muscular mix).
