Hi, everyone!

Quick show announcement... spend Thanksgiving weekend with us... at a comic convention!

We will be performing at the Chicago Pop Culture Convention next weekend!

We're playing a full set on Sunday on the stage, and we'll be around the convention on Saturday with some mini performances in the lobby throughout the day. We're playing a brand-new song that we've never played live before. It's about waking up in another world and it was partly inspired by Gwenpool, so, how fitting is it that we're going to debut it at a comic convention? We also have some new covers planned as well. Gobble, gobble, hey!

10.18.18 - "Under the blood red stars..."

Last-minute booking! We're performing this Saturday (10/20) at the Wheaton Haunted Flea Market!

Face Time Police @ The Wheaton Haunted Flea Market
Building # 5 @ 8:15 pm

As you can tell, we're ready for Halloween all year long, so, we can't wait to take the stage at this event!

For more information about the Wheaton Haunted Flea Market, visit:

10.01.18 - "Another day on a different road..."

Today, not only do we have a new video to debut, but a brand new song as well!

"Who Am I?" is very personal (as are all of our songs). The song (and the video) is about finding yourself. Figuring out where and how you fit in this silly world, finding your own identity... that's what this song is about. We'll leave it at that for now.

Oh, the video includes some references (some would call them "Easter Eggs") to... stuff. How many can you find?

The new song will eventually go up on Spotify, iTunes, and other streaming services. For now, we hope that you like the video!

Please help us by sharing this video with your friends. It would mean a lot to us. :)

08.19.18 - "Here we are now... entertain us..."

We're happy to announce that we will perform 2 sets at Wizard World Chicago next week!

08.03.18 - "Just remember, the choice was always yours..."

"This song's about Hellsing. It's called 'Of Man And Monster.'"

I suppose that's the only introduction that this song needs, but we'll give you a little more insight...

Our original song "Of Man and Monster" was inspired by the anime Hellsing (the series is currently on Crunchyroll and Funimation). Of course, it's not solely about Hellsing. It's a deeply personal song that happens to use some scenarios and situations from the series as similes for stuff in real life. I don't really like revealing too much about a song, so, I'll stop there.

This performance is from Anime Expo 2018.

You can find the original version of the song on iTunes, Spotify, and just about every streaming service out there. As for the acoustic version, we haven't released an acoustic version of the song yet, but we love playing it live! Let us know if the acoustic version is something that you would like us to record and release. We thought that it would be cool to leave the acoustic version unrecorded/unreleased and just save it for our live performances, so, convince us otherwise! :)

Please like, comment, and share it with your friends!

Have a great weekend!

-Brian "Just remember, the choice was always yours" Serra

07.27.18 - "When There's Trouble, You Know Who To Call..."

You have no idea how much my heart jumps for joy when people recognize this song and shout "TEEN TITANS!!!" after that line.

In celebration of Teen Titans GO to the Movies (we already have tickets; we'll be watching it this weekend!), here's our performance of the "Teen Titans Theme" from Anime Expo a few weeks ago.

In case you didn't know, we wrote an original song inspired by Beast Boy and Terra called "Dance At Your Own Risk." It's a track from our album, Don't Believe In The Moon. You can find it on iTunes, Spotify, and just about every streaming service out there.

More performance videos to come! :)


07.23.18 - Darling, you've got to let me know...

Anime Expo was AMAZING!

Our first video from our performance is our cover of "Should I Stay Or Should I Go?" by The Clash! The original was prominently featured in Stranger Things, which, like us, is partly inspired by anime. :)

We hope to upload more performance videos from our time at Anime Expo (and hopefully, a special recap video of the entire weekend as well), so, please keep an eye out for them!

06.11.18 - When There's Trouble, You Know Who To Call...

Here are 2 clips from our appearance at Wizard World Des Moines a few weeks ago!

The first clip is of the Teen Titans' theme song. It's one of our favorite covers to perform live. The second is of the song "Runnin' Home To You" from the musical episode of the Flash. :)

Our next show is at ANIME EXPO in Los Angeles! We'll have more details as we receive them. In the meantime, here's our announcement video: https://youtu.be/US1Gv5wSt24

05.27.18 - Before I Forget This...

We're playing a show in Iowa next week?! We might just bring out this cover... ;)

05.21.18 - California Love...

We still can't believe that this is happening, but... we're performing... at... ANIME EXPO this year!!!

It takes place in L.A. from July 5-8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. We'll have more details as we get closer to the convention. We grew up in Southern California (Baldwin Park, specifically), so, this is one heck of a homecoming!

Follow us on social media for any updates:


Alright, Cali. Let's do this. :)

04.03.18 - "runnersmile" outta nowhere!

"runnersmile" (acoustic): https://youtu.be/69fl1eynGqk

4/3 marks our bandiversary! It's the day on which we uploaded our first four songs: "She Sells," "Seashells," "By The Sea," "Shore." Get it? It's like... A Lesson In Articulation... or something. ;)

Here's our brand new video for the acoustic version of "runnersmile!" If you're familiar with the original "full band" version, you know that there are several interweaving melodies throughout the song. Part of the challenge was to re-arrange, re-work, and re-adjust all of that for just one instrument while trying to keep the original sound and vibe intact. For the video, we wanted to film and edit it to look similar to the original video for "runnersmile," but we threw in some other visual elements to keep things interesting. I've always thought that the original "runnersmile" video would've been eight-hundred-eighty-eight times cooler if we wore our masks for that video.

We hope that you enjoy the video and the acoustic version of "runnersmile!" Please share the video with your friends. Any help spreading it around would be greatly appreciated. :)

What's next? Hmm... is it time to bring out some new material?

01.01.18 - These are a few of our favorite things...

Happy New Year! We thought that we would film a quick video in which we named some of our favorites in t.v., movies, video games, comics, and anime from 2017. We actually filmed about 60 minutes worth of footage and whittled it down to 60 seconds, so, obviously, this isn't meant to be an extensive "best of 2017" list; it's a fun, little video. Who knows? You might have missed some of the gems that we mentioned.

Thank you for making 2017 such a memorable one for us. Here's to 2018!

If you'd like to see us perform at a venue or convention near you, please either tell them about us or let us know of them, and we'll do our best to get the ball rolling.

Simply contact us through our social media pages:


In the meantime, we're working on new music! Stay tuned...

10.20.17 - Stranger Than Fiction...

Hi, everyone! Our new Halloween video is up now! We've been just a tad bit obsessed with Stranger Things* lately... :)

It's a cover of "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" by The Clash, and sort of a mashup with "Destroy The World Around Me" by Mushroomhead.

This was so much fun to plan, shoot, and edit. Any help in sharing the video would be greatly appreciated. Every bit helps!

* Update: Check out this awesome write-up from Wizard World. Thanks, Luke!

07.21.17 - Do You Know What Would Be "Metal?"

Hi, everyone! Today, we bring you a rather special FaceCast episode, "Disney Is Metal." It focuses on a highlight from our performance at Anime Midwest 2 weeks ago. It was nice to find a way to integrate more of our personalities and interests into our set. Our performance at Anime Midwest was a great opportunity to test out a few things that will most likely make it into our regular shows as well. After all, as we've always said... there is no art without deviation. :)

We hope that you enjoy the clip! Please share it with your friends. Any help with spreading it around would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to Anime Midwest for an amazing weekend, and an extra special THANK YOU to everyone who checked out our set. It means the world to us.

05.30.17 - Delete! Delete! Delete!

It's not every day that you get to simultaneously make a reference to both anime and pro wrestling. ;)

05.16.17 - Anime Midwest Announcement

Today, we have a special announcement... we're performing at Anime Midwest this year!!! Watch our announcement video above for a quick cover of an anime theme song. (Hint: "I'm one hell of a butler." Okay... that may have been too much of a hint...)
More videos and info to come. Stay tuned!

03.31.17 - Max Power

We've always wanted to work pro wrestling into one of our music videos. It's only fitting that we use match footage from AAW, as they featured our music in some of their trailers a few years ago. They're honestly one of the best indie wrestling organizations around, and they happen to be from RIGHT HERE... IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS! *cheap pop* :)

"Maximum" is about giving everything you've got. The wrestling match in the video conveys that notion to a T. It features clips from an encounter between 2 of the best luchadors in the industry today, Pentagon Jr. and Fenix. James and I were actually in attendance for this event!

By the way, in case you're not familiar with pro wrestling and think that it's just a bunch of fake punches, prepare to have your mind blown...


03.10.17 - Brian Through The Motions...

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Buffy The Vampire Slayer! To celebrate, we've decided to put up a rendition of "Going Through The Motions" from the musical episode, "Once More, With Feeling."

Buffy The Vampire Slayer was quite an inspiration to us. The show's creators weren't afraid to dabble in different genres; we've applied that same sense of bravado to our music.

We've been waiting for just the right moment to cover a song from the Buffy musical; today seems like a good day. We threw in a few references to the scene in the musical episode which features this song, so, please share this video with any fellow Buffy fans.

01.01.17 - Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!! Thank you for making 2016 an awesome year. It means the world to us. :)

Our first show of the year will be at The Oasis in Grayslake, IL on February 4. We actually played an impromptu acoustic set the first time that we played there. There's a funny little story behind that which we explained on Facebook (here).

Event Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/365107893867427/

If you'd like us to play a show in your area, please let us know on any of our social media accounts and let's make that happen!

I dig the production VERY MUCH. It has a video game/comic book movie feel to it. The track "Of Man & Monster" sounds more crisp than the original (I marked out for it). The track "Runnersmile" sounds like the sequel to "Minute Made" [from the EP, The Definition of Deviation]. I'm proud to be a fan of Face Time Police. -Mike Bradley (Chicago, IL)

As one of Face Time Police's biggest fans, I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for this album to come out. This album DESERVES attention, especially the title track "Don't Believe In The Moon." Between the new material and the re-imagining of some of their older stuff, it's such solid work and really shows why Face Time Police is in its own category. I'm star-struck. -Justin Mane (Detroit, MI)

Once again we are treated to a flawless Face Time Police release! True to form, each song on the album is a completely different genre, yet it still has that classic FTP quality to it. From the pumping bass line in "Runnersmile" to the gentleness of the brilliantly re-worked "Until Infinity" and the title track "Don't Believe In The Moon" that just makes you want to hold a loved one and dance, to the aggressively melodic "Wired As A Weapon" and "Maximum," there is absolutely nothing to dislike! Face Time Police are a rare occurrence; a band that is consistently spectacular and always fresh! Long may their reign continue!" -Grant Hay (Scotland, UK)

The new album is amazing! I've been listening to Face Time Police since around 2006 when A Lesson In Articulation [demo EP] came out. You can really tell how much Brian and James have grown as songwriters and artists between then and now with Don't Believe In The Moon. "Runnersmile" and "Den Of Sharks" are probably my two favorite songs on the album and my week old son also loves "Den Of Sharks" and "Until Infinity." Excellent job gentlemen, and hopefully some day I can take a father/son road trip to one of your concerts. Thank you for the years of amazing music and keep up the good work. -Matt Wesemann (Omaha, NE)

I really liked everything I heard on this CD. Face Time Police is extremely talented and versatile. They can play tons of instruments and they hit a lot of genres. There's definitely something for everyone on this CD. My personal favorites are "Runnersmile," "Den of Sharks," and "Don't Believe in the Moon." "Until Infinity" has a really cool sound. It reminds me of the "Enchantment Under The Sea" dance in Back to The Future. Since buying the pre-order special, I haven't been able to stop listening to it. It's professionally done and the quality is top notch. I'm surprised these guys are still considered local and the fact that they did everything themselves is extremely impressive. Their beats are bumping in my head right now and I have no plans of drowning it out with anything else for a while. Great buy! -Jace Rhea (Libertyville, IL)

Face Time Police really knows what the Hell they're doing. "Den of Sharks" and "Dance at Your Own Risk" are my absolute favorites, but "Runnersmile" really impressed me! THAT should have been the song of the Summer, screw Robin Thicke. So much music on the radio is empty. Don't Believe in the Moon [album] is catchy AND clever. This is the type of album that inspires other artists. This is the type of album that can save music. This is the type of album that people continue to talk about for generations to come. -Tami Benson (Jacksonville, TX)
