N8NOFACE was the vocalist for underground synth-punk legends CRIMEKILLZ. He is the younger brother of Tucson-bred modern boogie rocket man Zackey Force Funk, both now residing in Long Beach, CA. In 2017, HIT+RUN released N8's visceral debut album "STORIES OF THOSE' [HNR69], as well as "DEMOS AND DEMONS VOL. 1" [HNR81], a ten-track collection of home demos recorded between 2015-2016. On Dia de los Muertos 2017, NOFACE also unleashed the first single from his forthcoming new album 'TRUE STORY' [HNR90], the haunting double A-side lathe cut "IDGAF / Say Goodbye" [HNR79]. 'TRUE STORY", the 14-track LP due on August 8th, 2018 (N8.08.18), reads like a collection of compelling mini-narratives, brief yet honest tales of personal struggles, anti-establishment rants, dead end loves, and real-life tragedies. N8's minimal wave sound is not about nostalgic lo-fi nor home-recorder formulas, but his own instinctive style that defies categorization and comparisons. The result is a distinct sound of rapid-fire hardcore punk moshing with awkward pop music. Standout tracks on the dense 18-minute album include "Not Like You", "Bad Day", "Men Who Dress Well" and "Glasgow Smile".

Tales of sordid street escapades, drugs and fast women have been long running themes for Tucson's ZACKEY FORCE FUNK. Though these are themes that have been explored to excess in music over the years, his psychedelic, acid-trip style has been what places him in another realm. Three quarters singing and one quarter rapping, the Force Funk sound has been well-established in the world of underground electronic music over the last decade. With the arrival of his MoFunk debut album, BODYROCK SHOTGUN, ZFF is set to advance yet another level with melodic modern funk production that challenges him to expand his one-of-a-kind vocal style to new territory.
