Faber Drive

Bursting out of Mission, British Columbia in 2004, Canadian pop punk quartet Faber Drive first got their big break as signees of Nickelback member Chad Kroeger’s label, 604 Records. Borrowing their stage name from their frontman, Dave Faber, the group were initially known by the mononym Faber, under which they released a self-titled debut EP in 2005 before modifying their moniker for legal reasons. Their first album, Seven Second Surgery, landed in 2007. It spawned three national chart hits including “Tongue Tied” and “When I’m With You”, both of which reached the Canadian top 20, and led the band to receive a nomination for a coveted Juno Award for Best New Group of the Year 2008. Following various changes to the four-piece’s lineup, they returned in 2009 with a second LP entitled Can’t Keep a Secret, which yielded two platinum-certified singles in Canada in the form of “G-Get Up and Dance” and “Give Him Up” and another minor success in “You and I Tonight”. By the time that the group’s third album, Lost in Paradise, arrived in 2012, they faced dwindling chart prospects, with none of the album’s four singles reaching the Canadian top 40. After parting ways with 604, they began to independently release new singles through a new label of their own, Tongue Tied Records. These have included multiple collaborations with Dave’s son, rapper/producer Isaiah “Powfu” Faber, who scored an international smash of his own in 2020 with the beabadoobee-sampling “death bed (coffee for your head)”.
