05.23.15 - SCANDALOUS!
Last weekend, I attended Anime Central. ACEN was a stop on Scandal's "Hello World" world tour. I've been a fan of theirs for a few years now, so it was awesome to finally see them live... and get a CD signed... and take a photo with them... yeah, I was freaking out!!!
On the topic of anime conventions... we have been confirmed for the "mini-stage" at this year's Anime Midwest! We will be playing on Friday, July 3, at 3 pm. It's our first anime convention gig, so I'm quite anxious to play at Anime Midwest. James and I will be unveiling a special acoustic set that we've been working on for the past couple of months!!! More details to come... :)
04.05.15 - Happy Easter!!!
02.17.15 - "And it beats too fast for her pace..."
We'd like to bring you into our world a bit more by giving you a glimpse of what interests us in addition to our music. This Sunday, on 2/22, we're going to live tweet the WWE event, Fastlane. Feel free to tweet along with us. Are you going to boo Daniel Bryan? Rally behind Roman Reigns? Let us know!
Also, I've been pretty active on my Twitch channel, so please check it out. Last week, I streamed the new game "Evolve." It's really unconventional and interesting. The concept is simple... each match consists of 4 hunters vs. 1 monster. You can either select to be one of the hunters or be the monster! How awesome is that?! If you're even the slightest bit familiar with FTP, you know which side I'm picking. Hint: "bold enough to be the..." ;)

Happy Valentine's Day! If you like us, then we love you!
01.25.15 - Let's Get Ready to Rumblllllllllllle!
We love pro wrestling and video games, so in honor of the Royal Rumble, James and I will be live streaming a WWE 2K15 Royal Rumble match today at 3 pm (Central Standard Time).
I will be using our custom wrestler, undead luchador “Murphy You Are A Elf” (it’s an obscure reference from The Simpsons) and James will be using Sami Zayn. If our characters get eliminated, we’ll continue to play as the other random Rumble contestants until the match ends.
Watch it live at: http://www.twitch.tv/Brian_FTP
I plan to stream more games, so please keep an eye out for updates and new content on my Twitch channel. I streamed the new Final Fantasy XIV updates all week, and I can't wait to get into Final Fantasy Type-0 (and hopefully the Final Fantasy XV demo) in March. In case you couldn't tell, I love Final Fantasy. :) -Brian
01.01.15 - Happy Something or Other!
2014 was quite an eventful year full of ups and downs for us! During the first half of the year, it felt like nothing was going our way. I started off the year with a severely sprained wrist which left me out of commission for a few months. James' mystery vocal ailment also reared its ugly head once again. There's nothing scarier and more frustrating than these stupid, random occurrences that threaten our art and our music. Whatever. We fight. We adapt. We do what we have to do in order to keep moving forward. It's going to take much more than a weak wrist and hoarseness to stop us. :)
In 2014, we finished our music video double feature for "Runnersmile" and "Of Man and Monster!" Each song and video focuses on a different aspect of our art. "Of Man and Monster" captures the energy of our live show and our rock/punk/metal influences while "Runnersmile" showcases our more adventurous pop or alternative hip-hop side. We also managed to find time to arrange and film an acoustic cover medley of Knotfest bands which caught the attention of Revolver magazine! Variety and diversity. That's what it's all about.
Outside of our band, I also got back into concert photography! Please check out this gallery specifically since it's the first that James and I shot together. Anyway, here's to 2015! We have quite the list of what we want to accomplish this year, so stay tuned. Thank you so much for giving a damn about this little band of brothers. Cheers! -Brian
12.15.14 - 'Tis The Season...
We call this cover medley "(Burning) Under The Mistletoe." It features our take on Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas is You" and Irving Berlin's "White Christmas." Please share it with anyone who isn't a Grinch. :)
10.XIII.14 - Bare Bones Exposed...
This year, we're making the metal pilgrimage to Knotfest. In celebration of the trip (and this year's line-up), we've prepared this special acoustic cover medley which features interpretations of songs from various artists on the bill. How many artists/songs can you identify?
9.19.14 - Duality
Today is the big day! Watch our music videos for "Runnersmile" and "Of Man and Monster" below! Please help us spread the word about this double feature. Each song and video shows a different side of Face Time Police. "Runnersmile" showcases our pop/hip-hop side while "Of Man and Monster" is more rock/punk/metal. Enjoy!
