Faulkner is an alternative band based in Venice, California with members from New York City, consisting of Lucas Asher (vocals/guitar/Songwriter), Eric Scullin (vocals/multi-instrumentalist/Producer), Dimitri Farougias (bass), and Christian Hogan (drums). [1]

After posting an online demo, the band attracted the attention of Mark Needham (The Killers), RZA (Wu-Tang Clan), and JP Bowersock (The Strokes) and began work on their debut album. [2]

Wu-Tang Clan member and producer "RZA" co-wrote and produced the mixtape single "NY Anthem", which premiered on ESPN's "Draft Academy." [3] (Asher wrote "NY Anthem" while spending years living on the street in New York City) [4] [5]

The band has also been featured on L.A. radio station KROQ, and their single “Revolutionary” has over two million plays on YouTube. [6]

The band's debut EP, “REVANCHIST", was released in March 2018. [7]
