We have received a ton of calls, emails and questions on who will be opening for Theory Of A Deadman on January 18th at the Toyota Arena...well, the first band is now confirmed. Comin' straight outta Spokompton, 'The Fail Safe Project'.

TFSP is no stranger to the Tri-Cities, the 97 Rock airwaves, Rays Golden Lion in the Uptown Richland, or Rock Reactor in Downtown Kennewick. Earlier this year they opened for Puddle of Mudd and My Darkest Days at the Knitting Factory in Spokane and they also won the opening slot on the Ernie Ball Stage at the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Tour in Spokane this summer.

Take a listen to 'Chasing Time' from TFSP below and keep 97 Rock cranked up for chances to score free tickes to see The Fail Safe Project with Theory of a Deadman on Wednesday January 18th at the Toyota Arena.

The Fail Safe Project

Fail Safe: A system that has been structured such that it cannot fail (or that the probability of such failure is extremely low) to accomplish its assigned mission, regardless of environmental factors.

The Fail Safe Project is a rock and roll band from the beautiful city of Spokane, WA.
Started in the fall of 2010 by George Silva, Jimmy Arguello, Lenny Fuson & Steve Ellis.

TFSP began as a project never meant to see the light of day, nothing more than a side project of very close friends but shortly after rehearsal began it became clear that what was coming out was so inspired and fueled by passion and love for real, honest, original rock music that it was destined for big things. Just four short weeks after the bands inception, the four friends went in to Rainbow Trout Studios to record their first 4 song. That would soon become the EP that the band has been touring relentlessly in support of since its release in February 2011.

Having played more than 80 shows in the first 8 months of the bands touring career, TFSP has already shared the stage w/ Nationally acclaimed artists like Avenged Sevenfold, Three Days Grace, Sevendust, Seether, Anchored, Bullet For My Valentine, Blacktide, Escape The Fate, Royal Bliss, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, My Darkest Days, 10 Years, Art Of Dying, Madlife, Hell Or High Water, Candlelight Red, Static Cycle, Adler's Appetite and more. The band recently finished up recording their new 7 song EP and are hoping for a release later this winter.
TFSP decided on adding guitarist and close friend Tony Ari to complete the bands sound and now feel complete but even more of a force to be reconed with. Between tours and studio time, TFSP also secured a spot on the 2011 Rock Star Uproar Festival when it stopped at The Spokane Arena.

The band prides themselves on putting on a high energy live show and pours it's heart into every performance. "Making the fans stoked and making new friends at every tour stop is what this band is all about" says guitarist George Silva.

TFSP has already sealed endorsement deals with Basson Cabinets, Maxline Custom Road Cases, Monster Energy Drink, Bleeding Star Clothing, SW plugs and are always looking for more endorsement opportunities. The band is also seeking professional Street Team persons, Management, Booking and a Label to call home. The Fail Safe Project is destined for greatness and the sky is the limit.
