Fools’ Brew
FOOLS’ BREW is on a mission to tear up every stage they play with straightforward, beer-soaked, Midwest-bred metal. The Chicago four-pack of fury cut their teeth playing bars and clubs all around Chicago. In the early months of 2012 they rocked The Rave in Milwaukee while opening for Korn. 2013 saw the FOOLS win the Chicago Battle of the Bands at Reggie’s Rock Club, play the main stage at Congress Theater, and headline shows around the city. Their EP “THIS SIDE OF SANITY” served as a coming out party as they showcased their raucous live set across the Midwest playing venues in Detroit, Indianapolis, Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, and Bloomington; opened for Kyng, Kill Devil Hill, Soulfly, Butcher Babies, Crobot, and Upon A Burning Body; and packed shows back home at some of the Chicago area’s premier rock venues. Recently the FOOLS have partnered up with BlankTV and joined the family of Coldcock Whiskey sponsored artists. For their new EP, they enlisted the help of veteran producer Chris Steinmetz of Stonecutter Studios, creating the fiery six tracks that are “The Reckoning, which saw radio play on over 90 stations nationwide. Building on that success, they’ve spent early 2017 playing shows across five states as part of their “Run for the Border Tour” and releasing their new single “The Parade”. The FOOLS show no signs of slowing as the Brew Crew keeps growing.
