Fear is the Driving Force is a side project from Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan and Jeff Hickey, ex-Living Sacrifice percussionist and Lovedrug drummer Matt Putman, Phillip Farris and Jeremy Joplin. The band was started in 2009, though with everyone busy with their main projects, families and real jobs, they haven’t been able to spend much time on it. Now, they’re ready to put their songs down for a full-length release. From the band:
We decided to post this demo to Bandcamp in order to raise funds to finish the full length … So buy this if you dig it and help us deliver the goods.
Instead of using a crowdfunding site, the band put up this 2009 demo on Bandcamp to help raise proceeds to record their first full-length that would include new versions of the demo songs, along with six or seven brand new songs. You can listen below, and by all means, please purchase the record so this can happen.
