Biography

Louisville, Kentucky, United States (1995 – 2004, 2006 – present)

Flaw is a rock band which formed in Louisville, Kentucky, United States in 1995.

The band formed when vocalist Chris Volz answered an ad in a local paper placed by guitarist Jason Daunt, looking for a singer for an alternative/industrial band. The band’s rhythm section progressed through several line-ups but solidified with the addition of bassist Ryan Jurhs in 1996. That same year the band recorded their first independent record American Arrogance.

Because they were low on money, the band ordered everything they needed to record from the Musician’s Friend catalog, then returned it using the 30-day return policy. Their album gave them the opportunity to open for acts including Fear Factory and Econoline Crush. A local radio station, The Fox, broadcast the songs from Flaw’s indie disc, giving them further notoriety.

Two more independent records, 1998’s self titled album Flaw and 2000’s Drama were later produced.

Flaw signed to Universal/Republic Records in 2000, and proceeded to release their debut album, Through the Eyes in 2001. The album eventually topped the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, due to moderate rotation of their music videos “Payback” and “Whole” on MTV2 and rock radio stations. In 2002, the band played at Ozzfest.

In 2004, after three years without releasing a new album, Flaw returned to the studio to begin recording their second studio album, Endangered Species. The band had parted ways with guitarist Jason Daunt and drummer Chris Ballinger and added Micah Havertape as their new drummer.

    meh. first album was fantastic but I think that was because they had an awesome producer that knew how to bring out certain elements in the band (like that uh-MAZING bassist). So much potential but I don't think it will ever reach any kind of peak.

    I love Endangered Species album... it has a great vibe, which you can't find in other bands... still Through The Eyes is awesome piece of music too ;)

    Home Grown Sessions were pretty low quality, yeah. By Lance writing good stuff effortlessly are you referring to Saturate? I just found them recently, seemed fantastic. If we're discussing good old tracks, I want to see another track like Human merchandise minus the pointless rap parts in the bridge. I am just glad Chris Volz kept finding ways of having strong output.

    Well the positives this time around are that they are going to record new material in a STUDIO with a PRODUCER, Lance writes amazing stuff seemingly effortlessly. What will Volz do? We'll see... but we're getting some new songs and the band is now open to touring with other bands and not having to headline so the 'lifespan' this time could be significant or it won't work at all but I'm trying to think positively, listening to live recordings, I have great-quality Endangered Specices outtakes (than what are out there on the net), even a song like "Fall into This" off The Paper CD I love. Volz was a BADASS SINGER & we'll see where his heads at this time around.

    They've been back multiple times, let's hope this one lasts a decent lifespan.
