Federale is a seven-piece ensemble based in Portland, OR. Spearheaded by longtime Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Collin Hegna, the band was conceived as an outlet to channel inspiration from ‘60s & ‘70s European soundtracks, particularly those from Italy made famous by the Spaghetti Western & Giallo genres.
Coming off the re-release of Federale’s debut record on vinyl in April 2018, the band now has its focus on the future and the upcoming release of its fifth studio record later this year. The working title of Album #5 is “No Justice” and it explores further the narrative story telling style of artists such as Lee Hazlewood, Serge Gainsbourg, and Waylon Jennings. While maintaining the 60’s inspired string and horn arrangements of film composers such as Ennio Morricone and John Barry.
