The Almost Faithful is a Seattle-based alt-rock trio featuring guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist John Feodorov, bass guitarist Hal Deranek, and drummer James Lord.
John Feodorov formed The Almost Faithful in 2015. A musician and songwriter long before establishing himself as a multi-media artist, Feodorov wanted to put together a band that could address themes similar to his visual art practice.
With songs informed by Art Rock, Post-Punk, Progressive and Psychedelic Rock, The Almost Faithful weaves together thought-provoking and mordant lyrics with staccato guitar riffs, intense bass lines, and dynamic drumming to create a sound that is as raw and gritty as it is intentional and well-crafted.
Drawing inspiration from artists such as The Kinks, Blonde Redhead, Gang of Four, and King Crimson, The Almost Faithful’s songs are simultaneously introspective and intense, while their lyrics maneuver between pensive reflection and biting social critique.
In 2016 the NW Music Scene blog wrote that The Almost Faithful’s debut EP “…takes you on a journey that is at times progressive, often alluring, into a dreamscape of sounds that is touched by the grit of grunge.” Stephen Graham at KNDD radio described the band’s first single, “My Soul Is Saving Me”, as sounding, “straight out of a Quentin Tarantino film.”
The band has just finished recording ten songs for their upcoming album titled “Human | Nature” and is scheduled for release in October 2018. The songs address themes such as consumerism, spiritual conflict, insomnia, and doubt in the age of alternative facts.
