“We have been working on this album for a little over two years and are beyond excited to share it with the world,” said Tomar and the FCs.
Tomar and the FCs first exploded onto the Austin music scene in 2015 with the release of their EP, “Day by Day,” and by the time they released their debut album “Heart Attack” in late 2016, they had already received critical acclaim and become a local powerhouse. In 2018, Tomar and the FCs signed to Houston-based, independent record label Splice Records. Now with the upcoming release of their new record, “Rise Above,” the band is delving further into their roots, creating a soul album with elements of blues, rock and funk all influenced by the diverse musical landscape of Austin.
The tracking for “Rise Above” was done by David Earl at the Dywer House, with overdubs and mixing done by Sam Patlove at Bud's Recording Services and with vocal tracks recorded at Carnival Beats Soul Studios with Salih and Ishaq Williams.View Map
