FAIT ACCOMPLI BIO ///
Fait Accompli are an independent Soul Punk band from Sydney, Australia. Their music is a combination of Politics! People Power! sharing stories about empowerment through a message of love presented by set of manic riffs vs radiant guitar which are then compounded by a cyclone of drums and driving bass. Live Fait Accompli are a last gig of earth kind of affair and their one goal is to bring people together and unite everyone through the joy of music!
Fait Accompli have payed their dues opening for legends; Dead Kennedys, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Sebadoh, New York Dolls. They also toured with Sage Francis. FAIT have also shared the stage with The Smith Street Band, Wolfmother, Sticky Fingers, Violent Soho, Goons of Doom, The Bennies, Born Lion & many more.
Following a 2 year hiatus, Fait Accompli return with new single HIGHWAYS, a catchy but explosive tune for the summer. HIGHWAYS was recorded and Produced by Wade Keighrän (Steve Smyth / Wolf & Cub / The Scare).
HIGHWAYS is an anthem about the great escape and the journey through life. A song about the depths of where love and friendships have taken us all over the years and where we end up. But also about where we still need to go.
Fait Accompli are currently in pre-production for their next album which they are working on for a 2019 release.
In the mean time you can catch FAIT at a show out there somewhere!

REVIEW QUOTES ///
“blistering and intense”
“Noisy, melancholy post-punk power trio Fait Accompli opened up the night at The Hi-Fi.
While the crowd at this point was fairly thin on the ground, this didn’t stop the band from delivering a heavy and soulful set to all those who made it out early, leaving the stage
an amp-ringing mess.”
“Riding just below the Triple J Radar, Fait Accompli mirrored early At The Drive-In”
“This band continues to be AMAZING”
“The full force of what good music should be: transcendental and able to take the listener away to somewhere altogether better”
“A hard act to follow if any…”
“Sheer raw punk from Sydney has not offered so much for a while”
“Fait Accompli’s debut single Ride. Uplifting and heartbreaking, sentimental and irresistible”
“Ride shimmers with jangling indie guitars and a driving bassline that recalls a more motorik-influenced Maximo Park… – tasty”
“Ride lopes along, swept along in the wake of all that came before it”
“Fait Accompli are probably one of the most promising bands to emerge from Sydney in a long time”
Jane Gazzo, Channel V
“…straight away you can see this band is something special”
