Fresh Faces is the sixth album released by Foolish Creeper and the first with new lead singer Victor Morgan.

Production

After being signed to Tonal Records, the band started work on their newest album. After a few months of writing, production was halted when rhythm guitarist Joe Simmons was accidentally murdered in a drive-by shooting in downtown Chicago. The band mourned the loss of their fellow member, and after a few weeks, they started looking for a replacement guitarist. Simmons had co-written two songs prior to his death and both are present on the final album.

Lauren Jensen had taken over lead writing duties on the album (a task former lead singer Denis Porter held). Unlike Porter on the previous album, Jensen worked with every member of the band on the songs, wanting to maintain a strong working relationship with everyone. New lead singer Victor Morgan wrote one song on the album by himself, a request made by Jensen. Another request was longtime producer Dave Shevil contributing to the song The Little Things, a song that eventually became of the band's most well-known songs.
