The FTW

FTW? What the hell is FTW?

The F.T.W.

FTW – It’s an acronym that can be seen all across our great nation; it sits proudly next to 1% patches on filthy, greasy leather jackets and flies arrogantly on the backs of Harley Davidson motorcycles.

What does it mean? Fuck The World: A credo shared by bikers, punks and freak flag flyers worldwide.

The FTW is also the name of Michael Dolan’s new band. Dolan earned his own stripes touring the world with the surf punk outfit, The Turbo A.C.’s. But now he has his sights set on heavier horizons. He joined forces with underground guitar legend, The Major Nelson, and percussion powerhouse J.J. Meraz.

The FTW plays a brand of heavy NWOBHM rock and roll citing influences with bands like Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy and Motorhead. The Major’s thrashing, bluesy crank riffs meld brutally with Dolan’s Disciples of Lemmy Rickenbacker Bass and his Marshall stack cranked up to ‘Eleven!’

With the band’s latest LP Vendetta Kind Of Mood, The FTW are currently crushing skulls in clubs all around New York City and the world is next. The FTW keeps the torch burning, and burning brightly, for straight ahead high-octane metal and balls-to-the-wall rock and roll.
