Viva Death

While its earlier incarnation included Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters), drummer Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo, A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer) and Trever Keith (Face to Face), the current lineup has been parred down to Viva Death founder Scott Shiflett and producer extraordinaire Chad Blinman (Face To Face, Jarboe, Faith and The Muse).

You may already know Scott Shiflett as bassist of Southern California pop-punk titans Face to Face or, alternatively, as brother to Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters). Viva Death’s music is a departure from the music they otherwise are best known for.

 Viva Death is a recording project with an evolving cast of collaborators and an audacious vision of 21st century rock music. Having started as a baritone-guitar driven project spearheaded by Scott Shiflett and Trever Keith of Face to Face, the lineup came to also include Scott’s brother Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters), omnipresent drummer Josh Freese (The Vandals, Devo, A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer), and producer extraordinaire Chad Blinman (Face To Face, Jarboe, Faith and The Muse, Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids).

As the bassist of Southern California pop-punk titans Face to Face for over twenty years, and frequent touring guitarist for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Scott Shiflett is a player of exceptional skill and energy. Since 2001, Shiflett has been channeling his more adventurous inclinations into Viva Death.
