Band Begins Work In The Studio For 2014 Release
Flaw has re-formed, the original line-up back in place. After a decade of being dormant, Chris Volz (Vocals), Jason Daunt (Guitar), Lance Arny (Guitar), Ryan Jurhs (Bass / Backing Vocals) and Chris Ballinger (Drums) are once again a band.
On the reformation, Daunt offers, “After several years apart to work out personal issues we have reunited. The time apart has given us clear heads and a new appreciation for the music we are capable of creating together. We are currently writing new material which is a modern throwback to our original Flaw material. We are stoked about our renewed musical relationship and can’t wait to share it with the world.” Volz adds, “I am extremely excited and recharged to have the original lineup back in Flaw. I’ve conquered many demons and am ready to share my strength and hard fought battles with the world. We’re back!!”
Flaw will return to the stage as headliners for WTFX 93.1 The Fox’s annual Gobblestock on November 28 in Louisville, KY. The station has a long history with the band offering support during their early days. This support had a significant impact in the band emerging from their hometown market to a national stage.
Flaw formed in 1995 with a core of Chris Volz (vocals) and Jason Daunt (guitar). The line-up was solidified in 1996 with the additions of Ryan Jurhs (bass), Lance Arny (guitar) and Chris Ballinger (drums). They released the independent albums American Arrogance (1996), Flaw (1998) and Drama (2000). At the turn of the millennium, Flaw signed with Universal Republic Records, and released Through The Eyes in 2001. The offering topped the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart, largely fueled by the singles “Payback” and “Whole.” Links to view these clips are placed below. The band released Endangered Species via Republic in 2004, but soon thereafter the band went through personnel changes and ended their relationship with the label. Years have passed, with various incarnations, rumors, and misinformation permeating the band’s legacy, but in late-October, the band’s official web site went live once again after eight years of inactivity.
