Jonah Matranga of Far, etc. fame guests on the new Fake Figures track, “We Are The Dead“. Matranga also co-wrote that track, which is taken from Fake Figures‘ impending new EP, “We Are The Dead“. That outing is slated for a release this Friday, November 15th, via War Against Records. Fake Figures frontman Rus Martin (ex-Hotwire) said of this track:

“This song is our theme for the EP and I wanted to put it in someone else’s hands, someone else’s voice and heart. Jonah was the absolute perfect choice and we were all so thrilled he signed on for it. I took the quote “We are the dead” from the book 1984, it’s the last thing Winston says to Julia before he was finally caught by the Thought Police.

That’s all I told Jonah, besides… just roll with that concept and make it your own. And he did just that. In fact, he took it to a place that was thoughtful and so impactful lyrically.. I was like.. ok, all my stuff just got ghosted. Haha!! But it’s exactly what I hoped would happen because music, to me at this stage, is more about the people I connect with and how they interpret ideas into a collaboration I would have never thought of. It’s another step on the ladder of the musical journey.”

Matranga added:

“I fuckin loved being a part of this. The track is massive. I’m just into working with people across all sorts of music, and I appreciated the band giving me room to run on this one. I think we made something exciting & real, which is what it’s all about for me.”

Matranga and Fake Figures will be playing a one-off show together at The Hi Hat in Los Angeles, CA on December 13th. The date is part of a West Coast tour Matranga has booked that also includes the following dates:

12/13 San Diego, CA – Brick By Brick
12/15 Phoenix, AZ – Rebel Lounge
12/16 Las Vegas, NV – The Bunkhouse Saloon
