Jon Skinner and Alex Gabor are Raleigh, NC rock band Faster on Fire. With deep roots in the North Carolina pop punk scene, Jon and Alex began their musical careers together in Raleigh-based band, The Oh Whales.
After several tours, festivals, and the release of an EP and a single, The Oh Whales went on permanent hiatus. With a catalog of unreleased songs, Jon and Alex began to tailor a new sound, with strong influences from classic pop punk bands like blink-182, Taking Back Sunday, and Yellowcard, while still taking strong notes from newer groups such as Moose Blood, The Menzingers, and Real Friends. The result was an EP full of emotion, honesty, and a sound that leaves listeners with a sense of nostalgia yet excited for more to come.
