Bay Faction

Thursday, July 25
Doors: 7:30pm | Show: 8pm


Borne out of an online message board, Bay Faction emerged in the Boston DIY scene in 2015 with the debut of their self-titled record. It was the first release on Counter Intuitive Records with the band’s album pressed on vinyl. Following its release, Bay Faction spent 2 years rigorously touring nationwide, developing a cult-like following.

After graduation, the band relocated to New York, and camped out in a suburban New Jersey basement to write and record their sophomore record Florida Guilt. The record marked a departure from their earlier style, trading in a conventional rock setup for sampled drums, synths, and vocal processing, embodying the ethos they had long sought to define.

Highsnobiety named Bay Faction as “your favorite band you haven’t heard of yet,” and national touring ensued to promote their album. On the heels of the pandemic, Bay Faction bid farewell with the release of Swan Dive, their final song before entering hiatus. With much early fan speculation and buzz, 2024 indeed marks the awaited return of Bay Faction.
