Following the demise from the Knoxville, TN, alt-country band the V-Roys, group member Mic Harrison shifted to front the Faults. Following the demise from the V-Roys, with a couple of songs he previously created for his previous band readily available, Harrison come up with the Faults. The newer task symbolized a departure through the trademark twangy rock and roll from the V-Roys, rather providing crunch-heavy power pop. Signing up for the middle-30ish Harrison within the Faults for the group’s self-titled debut record in 2001 was several younger music artists, including bassist Paxton Retailers (also once a V-Roy), guitarist Robbie Trosper, and drummer Jason Peters. The record, made by Superdrag’s Don Coffey Jr., premiered on Lynn Stage Information, a label that Harrison and V-Roys drummer Jeff Expenses originally formed to get exposure for past due ’80s and early ’90s produces by Knoxville rings.
