Fastball is a Texas-based alternative rock trio best known for their 1998 hit single “The Way”. Formed in Austin, Texas in 1995, Fastball features Miles Zuniga (guitar/vocals), Tony Scalzo (bass/guitar/keyboards/vocals) and Joey Shuffield (drums). The band released their debut album, Make Your Mama Proud, in 1996 on Hollywood Records. Two years later, they released their breakthrough album All the Pain Money Can Buy. The platinum-selling album contained the singles “The Way”, “Fire Escape”, and “Out of My Head”. All the Pain Money Can Buy hit the Number 29 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The band was nominated for two Grammy Awards for “The Way” : Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group and Best Long Form Video. The band followed that album in 2000 with The Harsh Light of Day, which hit Number 97 on the Billboard 200. In 2002, Hollywood Records released the compilation album Painting the Corners: The Best of Fastball, their final release for the label. The trio released the limited edition Live from Jupiter Records in 2003. Fastball then signed with Rykodisk for their 2004 release Keep Your Wig On. It took another five years before they issued their fifth album, Little White Lies, on MRI Records. After an eight year break, the trio returned with Step into Light in 2017. They followed that up two years later with The Help Machine (2019).
