Epitaph Records is thrilled to announce that Save Face has signed to the label. The New Jersey-based rock band features vocalist/guitarist Tyler Povanda, guitarist Phil McGarry, bassist Chris Aveta, and drummer Chris Flannery.

Last November, the band delivered Folly: On The Rocks—a stripped-down, partly acoustic, more intimate rendition of the EP. The band has also taken on a relentless touring schedule over the past few years. With the band’s ambition and constant need to be on tour, Save Face was on the road for 9 months in 2017 including a run with label mates The Menzingers. Continuing the grind in 2018, Save Face will tour this spring as support for Boston Manor. Tickets are on sale now.
