Fiction and the Fear

Fiction and the Fear formed at the start of 2009 when two years of pent-up creativity finally gave way and pulled the ex-band mates (Ten Seconds of Chaos) back together. A fresh approach and attitude to the craft has resulted in the employment of sampled drums, synths, strings and walls of vocal harmony to accompany the solid drum, bass and guitar base. Expect anything from reflective electronic ballads to limb-flailing riffs from Fiction and the Fear as they embark on a new musical adventure.
