About Fear The Concept:
Without a doubt, someone has chided you with an old adage: "The only thing there is to fear is fear itself". This might have been true until 2011, where the saying became the only thing to fear is fear itself--and Fear the Concept, of course.
Fear the Concept are a furious five-piece from the depths of the sweltering Floridian heat, hell-bent on delivering creative, catchy and crushing metalcore, fueled by passion and a penchant for the punishing with no strings attached. Founded by percussionist Anthony LaMotta and guitarist Jonah Hess, Fear the Concept went through numerous line-up arrangements and member changes before arriving to their current lineup. Local success didn't satiate the band's thirst for delivering their unique blend of raunchy, energetic metalcore to the masses, however, as the summer of 2014 saw Fear the Concept traveling north, escaping the Floridian heat and recording their sophomore EP, Identity at Michigan's 37 Studios, to be produced by Joey Sturgis.
Old-fashioned fear is nothing compared to Fear the Concept, a band sure to take over a town near you in no time.
