The HOL, or House of Love, serves as one of the most intimate house show settings in Reno. Traveling bands and hometown bands alike have been cramming into the small living room space and playing straight into folks faces since, well, a while ago. Along with other surrounding properties including the Record St. Bibo, the HOL will likely be torn down and replaced by parking structures or boutique/vintage clothing stores in the coming months.
Anyway, we will be playing there this Friday with Spiteful Mourning – a band made up of some of Spencer’s music students from Innovations High. It will be their first show ever. Bring $5 because all the proceeds go to Sandy Hook Promise.
This Thursday in Reno ft. Joan and the Rivers. Git to the show!
Go on, git!
New Year’s Eve was fun!
We just woke up and we’re at The Purple Bean on 7th St. If you happen to have a saline injection kit, donuts, or maybe even some spare high fives, please drop by.
No saline. Sad.
Also, Gremfest is nearly upon us. No doy. Come to this or we’ll stop texting you at one in the morning on weekdays asking for a ride to Jack In The Box.

Happy New Year!
As you all already know, we’re playing at home here in sweet, sweet Reno very soon. On Novemeber 4th as a matter of fact, thank you. You’ll find us hangin’ tuff with all our best friends in California based music collective SNAFU Family. You can find the poster below so don’t be lazy… keep on a scrollin’ and then move those buns back up here to keep reading through to the FAQ! We’ve been honing our chops and keeping it fresh on the DL lately. Chill, and PLEASE check out our friends, old and new: DLC Gallery in Elko, NV The Brewing Lair in Blairsden, CA. On to the the FAQ.
Q: What happened?
A: Haha ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Q: Why haven’t you been returning my emails/messages/calls?
A: Ummmmmm probably don’t care. This answer might hurt a little, but you come to failuremachine.com for the truth, not fake news.
Q: Where’s the rest of your band?
A: Zac is in Las Vegas. Harry’s married. We love them, we miss them. We couldn’t be happier for the two of them, and also we hope Zac gets fired and Harry gets divorced.
Q: Why are you playing Off Beat Music Festival? Shit sucks.
Q: What’s up with Gremfest 2018 ©™?
A: All we’re able to disclose without receiving severe corporal punishment from Gremfest 2018 ©™: The desert. A fleet of big ass vans. No cops/no hospital.
So, you think you’re ready? Unlikely. Sorry.
Love you. See you on the 4th (or else).
We listen to Drake and FIDLAR. We don’t do much else. And we think that really comes through in this mixtape we recorded at Ballast Recordings in Reno.

How are your New Year’s Resolutions holding up?
Old friends and members of FM will be joining in on this Family Reunion. Old songs, brand new songs, and songs you’re completely fed up with. We’re going to play them all, whether you like it or not, cause it’s not really up to you! Joining us are very, very good friends in Joan and the Rivers, BandMaster Ruckus, and Van Goat. Producer Robbie Lynn and guest vocalist Dañiela DM will be coming out all the way from sunny, smoggy L.A. to play with us… so you know it’s good! See you soon!
Congrats to everybody who made it through the entire month of July without blowing any of their fingers up. The rest of you, cut it out.
Real news in the making.
Let’s hang out. We’re lucky to have our Veggo, NV friends in Rusty Maples along with us for some of these dates. Come meat and greet. Right?
Don’t miss this one. 8pm in Reno at the one and only Chapel Tavern.
