New Faces were a Britpop-influenced band, formed in Port Townsend, Washington in 2006 as Captain Incognito.[citation needed] The band was received well, and won Seattle's local under-21 music competition, Sound Off!.[1] The band is also the youngest band to be signed by Seattle-based Loveless Records.[2][3] The band released two singles off their first album, Two Years, on July 22, 2008, before releasing the full album on August 26 of the same year.[2]

The band has played with acts such as Blue Scholars and Schoolyard Heroes, and has been aired on Seattle music station KEXP-FM[4] and on KNDD (locally known as 107.7 The End).[5]

The band's music has appeared on television, with appearances on NBC, including Mercy and The Philanthropist. More recently, the band's music has been licensed for use in a television commercial, airing in Mexico, for Converse (shoe company).
