It's a lengthy, hypnotic piece from the Chicago group...

Chicago as a city has always wrestled with possibilities.

The city's underground scene is a dense array of freak sounds, moving from post-hardcore to post-rock, forever embracing new ideas.

Chicago trio FACS are key aspects of this, featuring former members of crucial group Disappears.

New album 'Lifelike' lands on March 29th, a work that utilises a minimalist framework while moving head-long into fresh pastures.

We're able to share mighty new composition 'Total History' and it's a colossal eight minute workout that veers into post-rock territory.

The shuddering rhythmic framework acts as an anchor, while the ruptured electronics careen from speaker to speaker.

Building to a dramatic finish, you can check out 'Total History' below.
