In spite of their limited lifespan and discography, the FAITH were a seminal influence on the early emocore movement in Washington, D.C. For starters, nearly all of their membership moved on to either EMBRACE or RITES OF SPRING, by most accounts the first true emo bands. But even during their existence, the FAITH's music hinted at what was to come, softening the standard-issue hardcore approach somewhat with better-developed melodies and a more inward-looking perspective. To be sure, it was high-energy, high-velocity punk, but its subtle deviations from the norm opened up new vistas for the D.C. scene.The FAITH was formed in the summer of 1981, and was initially a quartet featuring vocalist Alec MacKaye (ex-UNTOUCHABLES and brother of MINOR THREAT's Ian), guitarist Michael Hampton (formerly of HENRY ROLLINS' first band, STATE OF ALERT), bassist Chris Bald, and drummer Ivor Hanson.
