Faktion was an American rock band from Denton, Texas.

History[edit]

Faktion formed in 2005 as a four-piece group after the band members met at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. Originally, guitarist Marshal Dutton was the band's vocalist, but a frontman was recruited and the band became a five-piece group.

In 2004, the band independently recorded and released an EP titled Make a Dent. In October 2006, the band signed a record deal with Roadrunner Records.[1] Their self titled debut album Faktion was produced by Brett Hestla (Dark New Day) & Justin Thomas, and was recorded at Gridlock Studios in Orlando, Florida. Shortly thereafter the group embarked upon The Girls Gone Wild Rocks America tour with Hinder and Revelation Theory. The album was released on March 21, 2006. That following summer, after the release, the band gained a spot opening for Mercy Fall and Seether on Seether's Karma and Effect tour. Other notable tours included 10 years and Theory of a Deadman with countless other one-off dates with various national acts.

A short time after their album was released, the band announced they had parted ways with Roadrunner.[2]

The band independently released a five track b-side EP on March 20, 2007. On May 3, 2007, the band announced Gibbs' departure to pursue other opportunities.

In February 2008 the band released a new EP "Ignite What's Inside" featuring the new lineup and new material. Tracks "Feel Your Fire" "Burn" and "Be Here Lately" were produced by Chris Hawkes and recorded at One Road Studio in Austin, Texas with "Be Here Lately" co-written by Hawkes. "Save The World" was recorded at "Reel Time Audio" in Denton, Texas

As of 2008-2011 Faktion has disbanded, with previous members doing their own individual projects.
