Full Name: Matthew Jeffries
Favourite Bands: Of Mice & Men, Ice Nine Kills, Bullet For My Valentine
Inspirations: Alex Sears, Spencer Charnas, Vic Fuentes, Andrew Valesquez
Band Role: Clean Vocalist
Bio: At seventeen Matt intended to start out a cover band with a few friends so they could do what the loved and play music. Later, that band progressed into Failure Is An Option and they have since developed a wide and diverse style of music. Matt loved music from a young age and through his fathers old school metal roots he developed a taste for heavier music. Matt’s Grandparents paid for his first ever guitar lessons when he was younger and this sparked his musical development and encouraged him to push his musical ambition forward. Matt’s mother is a vocalist herself and has given Matt support and guidance in his musical career from the start. Matt’s Parentage is one of the reasons we can consider him the musician he is today.

Louis was the perfect candidate to help the band progress and carry on writing their original music, using unique kick and cymbal work to separate the bands music from the common metal play style.
