Former Champions are an electro rock band based out of Richmond whose music showcases vocal-led compositions intermixed with an array of instrumentally driven electronic pieces. A sonic blend of synthesized keys mixed with sub-bass, distorted guitar, harmonized vocals, samples, and a multitude of drums, cymbals and percussion combine to create what the band describes as “street music.”
2013 looks to be an exciting year for Former Champions as they release their second studio album, Special FX Machine, and continue hitting the road with a heavy tour schedule including appearances at several festivals across the country. FC have shared the stage with artists including Lotus, The New Deal, Conspirator, EOTO, Perpetual Groove, Papadosio, Dopapod, and many others. Join the fun and games with Former Champions as they keep the pedal to the metal in 2013 at Martin's Downtown!
