Known for their fierce live performances and relentless touring, Phoenix-based Latin-Reggae-Rock band, Fayuca blends their cultural roots and mother tongue with the ethos of Reggae and the passion of Progressive Punk. The end result is an intimate explosion of heady, sultry stoner rock with a Cumbia-Reggae twist. Fronted by lead vocalist/guitarist, Gabo and drummer, Rafael, Fayuca has released 4 studio albums since their launch in 2005 and continues to write and record new music regularly.
In May of 2013, Fayuca released their Fervor Records debut, Barrio Sideshow, made with platinum producer, Ralph Patlan (Megadeth, Jaime Foxx).
Not only was their album called one of the ’Most Anticipated Releases of by ThePier.Org, but Fayuca also won the High Times Magazine Doobie award for Best New/Underground Artist in Austin at SXSW.
Since the launch of Barrio Sideshow, Fervor Records has released three music videos, one of which is currently airing on MTVU. The all-Spanish video “Por Que Seguir”, Fayuca’s anthem to the oppressed, highlights their eclectic influences and bilingual, multi-cultural palette.
