Own a Piece of Facedown History

Facedown Records is holding a seven-day auction to help benefit Know.Think.Act.through our More Than Sound program. Up for auction are the three stage backdrops from our 2009 Facedown Fest. Each backdrop is being auctioned separately for three chances to own a piece of Facedown history. Every penny from the auctions will be given to help ongoing needs and projects with Know.Think.Act.

Facedown Fest is a Southern California institution, with nearly 15 years of fests held at venues around SoCal. In 2009, the label commissioned Dave Quiggle to make custom backdrops for the 10th anniversary of the Fest at Pomona’s Glasshouse venue which featured such bands as For Today, War Of Ages, Impending Doom, Sleeping Giant, xDeathstarx, A Plea For Purging along with many others. Now, you can own a ten-foot-tall piece of hardcore memorabilia by bidding on one of these three backdrops.

The 2013 Facedown Fest will be held at The Stronghold Venue in Chino, CA April 12-13, and feature bands from the Facedown roster including Gideon, War of Ages, Dynasty, xLooking Forwardx, Overcome, Saving Grace (all the way from New Zealand!), newcomers Those Who Fear and Fallstar, and many more! Tickets available here.

Pantokrator 2021

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
