Who is afraid of a little pop? Well, at least not this band from Stockholm and definitely not the international audience that quickly took the band to their hearts. But the fact that the band was first picked up by the stoner scene came as a surprise, says singer and guitarist Nik Serén who, together with Johan Bergqvist (bass), Daniel Israelsson (drums) and Björn Billgren (guitar), forms Hong Faux.

Our ambition is to combine the guitar riffs from the 70’s and the grunge scene’s more melodic parts from the 90’s. We have always enjoyed pop choruses and were convinced that the stoner crew would think we were wimpsy. But we were wrong…

This appreciation from an unexpected quarter might be explained by the retro flavored sound of their first recording, an EP that got its follow-up in 2011 with the album The Crown That Wears the Head. The band has since then refined the concept and the big melodic choruses take up bigger space now. With Razzia Notes by their side the band has the possibility to fulfill their musical vision, to take it all the way. Anders Fridén, record company boss and In Flames singer, has for a long time had his eyes on the band that has been praised by magazines like Classic Rock and Metal Hammer and even done a television broadcast concert at Rockpalast in Germany.

Now it is finally time for more people to discover Hong Faux and their unique mix of heavy riffs and memorable melodies. The EP Hello Neptune was released in April and 2015 sees the release of a record that Anders Fridén already refers to as a “monster album”. But until then the members continue doing what they have always done: touring. The four-piece will be doing shows all over Europe in 2014, sharing stages with such diverse bands as D-A-D, Helmet and Babyshambles. You can count on Hong Faux delivering both weight and melody. Just like they always do.

We are a do-it-yourself-band who have toured a lot and done everything on our own. We like what we do and our ambition is to combine these two components in a new and exciting way.

Are you neither afraid of some heavy guitars nor a little pop? Welcome to Hong Faux.
