Jonathan Davis and the SFA went on their first tour in the United States in November 2007, and a European tour in May 2008. Their debut album was planned for a release sometime in 2011 and a North American tour was expected to follow. Jonathan Davis and the SFA have a CD/DVD combo available at Invisible Arts. Jonathan's bodyguard and assistant Loc came up with the name of the band. The band has recently used their official website and a Ustream webcast to preview several demos from their upcoming album. Working titles include "Basic Needs", "Medicate", "Happiness", " Final Days", "Russia", "August 12", and "Gender", which was previously said to have been inspired by Buffalo Bill and Silence of the Lambs. The band has also recorded 3 other untitled demos.
A cover of Lil Wayne's "Got Money" featuring Slipknot and Stone Sour guitarist James Root was recently made available for download on the band's official website, accompanied by a message from Davis to ". . . download the track I've been remixing the past few days. It's not representative of the album I'm working on but it was just something fun I wanted to try . . ."
Percussionist Mike Dillon is expected to appear on the album, as he was seen in the studio tracking.
According to MTV News, select songs on Jonathan Davis and the SFA's solo debut are being co-written by acclaimed songwriting team, The Matrix, better known for their production on Korn's 2005 album, See You on the Other Side.
In January 2011, Jonathan uploaded 3 full-length songs from the album on SoundCloud titled 'Medicate', 'Happiness' and 'Final Days'.
Jonathan Davis has stated on his webcast that the SFA is an ever changing lineup of musicians. Some musicians are listed as "on break", as they never officially "quit" the SFA, but are not currently working with the band. Michael Jochum was relieved of his duties after Michael relocated to Denver, Colorado to be closer to his family.
