“CONVICTION” is the unapologetic, in your FACE single from alt-punk four piece Family Man off of their upcoming album Iconoclast. Bombastic bass and non-stop guitar start off right off the bat and only fade for a brief interlude, but pick up to bring home the last 1:20 of the track. Family Man has a feel somewhere between newer, angular indie rock and a touch of old school, falling somewhere between Parquet Courts, Fontaines D.C., and Black Flag. Front man Conner Root says regarding “CONVICTION:”

“There have always been members of Family Man who openly identify as being LGBTQ+, but the band adopts an ‘I am who I am, and if you don’t like that, I couldn’t care less’ mentality. ‘CONVICTION’’ is the first time we touch on that publicly.”

You can hear “CONVICTION” and their prior tracks over on Spotify and Apple Music. Be sure to let us know how you feel about Family Man in our comments over on our social meedz!
