About The Futures League

The Futures League is a four piece band hailing from Southern California that consists of Jon Arman (vocals/guitar), John Fontana (drums), Jack Rose (guitar), and Scott Ruth (bass). The band formed in early 2012 just a few months after a chance meeting during a typical sunny surf day in San Onofre. 

After their first jam together, the guys realized they had a unique sound that brought together each member’s particular musical taste and influences. The mixture of punk, blues, psychedelic, funk and a variety of other sounds allows you to come to the conclusion that it's Rock n' Roll. It's hard to pinpoint The Futures League in comparison with other bands or genres, but one thing is for sure – it’s an entirely unique sound of familiarity. 

The band released their self-recorded, self-titled debut demo/EP in late 2012 which led the way for a busy 2013. The year was spent playing lots of live shows including SXSW, Echo Park Rising Festival, The Troubadour, KCRW's School Night, and a residency at Orange County venue The Observatory. The mentality of being a live band first has heavily influenced the way the band writes and records new songs. 

The Futures League has since linked up with musician/producer Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Beck, Michael Kiwanuka). The first release from the TFL/Seyffert combo is called the "Don't Be A Drag" EP and will be released in June 2014 as the work away at a yet-to-be announced full length. All songs are recorded live, in-studio using almost entirely all analog gear in between epic games of ping-pong. 

The band is currently planning a tour to support the release of "Don't Be A Drag" and working away at the debut full-length.
