The FAKELIFE name came from an unused band name, Fake-Life Romance. It was meant as a commentary about the current ideology of many Americans today who believe the lies being told to them that if you buy the right thing, drive the right thing, or wear the right thing, your life will be better. It's about the romance we have with creating the illusion that we have it all together, when in fact, we don't. No one does. We hide behind masks to conceal our real selves out of fear of rejection. The reality is, we are all desperate to share our brokenness with each other and find some peace in that understanding.
