FUE “GRAY MATTERS” RELEASES JUNE 24TH!!

GrayMattersFinalDeKalb, IL-FUE (pronounced “few”) is an Alternative Christian Rock band that has been dazzling audiences throughout the country with their modern alternative rock and a hint of 80’s synth-pop sound.  The Chicago-based band are releasing their brand new album, “Gray Matters” to online retailers, which features ten new original songs that are hook-laiden and present an emotional-soundscape ready for movie and television soundtracks.  Lead singer Joanna Rutzky describes the new project, “it’s a collection of songs that were written out of personal events in the band’s lives over the past few years, making this our most intimate lyrical album yet. In life it seems that we would like things to have clear black and white answers, but many times there are situations that fall into the “gray” areas. It’s in these gray areas that we have to navigate through to find out who we are and what we believe in the midst of that.”  The concept of “Gray Matters” really resonates with the idea that we all have questions that need answering and feelings of hopelessness at times in life when things just don’t make sense.  Our hope is that whoever hears these songs will be able to relate with them because we all go through hardships in our lives and it’s comforting to know that we are not alone.  Not everything has clear cut answers, life is full of pain and tension, but, hope and love are weaved throughout it all and worth fighting for.”  The band consists of the intense emotional vocals of lead singer, Joanna Rutzky, Isaac Flex on Bass Guitar, Abi May on Synths/BGV’s, and brothers Tim and Aaron playing guitar and drums, respectively.  The band has been busy on the road playing at Cornerstone Festival, Alive Festival, as well as schools, churches, bars, and music venues throughout the United States sharing the positive message and energy of their music with a larger audience.
