About failsafekc

Kansas City, MO

Failsafe is a mainstream rock band from Kansas City that was formed in late 2007 by vocalist/guitarist Dylan Westlake. The band, originally a trio consisting of Westlake and long-time friends Nick Faulconer (drums) and Chris Ellis (bass), soon added guitarist Brett Johnson to the team in search of a fuller sound. After playing various shows to gain recognition around the KC area, Failsafe released a demo in early 2008 that spun the band into motion. Following the release of the demo, Westlake made the decision to focus solely on his vocal performance and guitarist Ben Grace was recruited to complete the band. With a strong new lineup, Failsafe began rapidly gaining popularity not only in the Kansas City area, but also online where their song "Losing Your Grace" made its way toward the top of numerous internet rock charts. After a summer featuring many Failsafe performances, drummer Nick Faulconer announced he would be temporarily leaving the band to pursue other opportunities. Nathan Ellis, brother of Chris Ellis, was brought in to fill the missing position until summer '09, which will mark the return of original Failsafe drummer Nick Faulconer. In late 2008 Failsafe entered the studio to begin work on their debut EP, "Blood Runs Cold," which is due in late April. With a strong new lineup, energetic live performances, and catchy, hard-hitting songs, Failsafe is proving to be a band to watch for in the future. Check out Failsafe on MySpace at
