the theatrical rock band
from Nashville, TN
...wants you to have a good time. They know that life is perilous and hard, but believe that you can be the (anti-) hero in your own story, blowing kisses at death, and flirting your way through turmoil. If you want a rock band with influences in cabaret, metal, horror, pop, and swing, then why didn’t you say so?

Their story began in 2010 when Zach Ferrin became determined to take his love of storytelling through music, theater, film, and art, and wrap it up into one bundle of entertainment. He and his sister, former member Kirstie Ferrin, had half of what would become their first album written before they would have a title by which to call themselves. The songs were all rambunctious, melodic, and wrapped in themes of loss, love, hate, and triumph playfully told through tales of legend and myth. "Fable Cry" was born, and in 2011 they self released their self-titled debut album. Between the two of them they played guitar, violin, accordion, drums, bells, kazoo, ukelele, banjo, and cello, and they tried their best to include as much of it as possible in their live shows, along with humorous intros, crowd participation, and twistedly playful "Story Time" between songs.
