Fiction City was founded in a small town of Kill Devil Hills in North Carolina in 2007.
It's pretty much the project of one man, Michael Wayne, who was born in Russia in 1986 and moved to U.S. in 2006. Wayne is the author of all music and lyrics, sometimes he cooperates with other musicians and singers. Michael Wayne participated in several other projects before Fiction City, but soon he separated from his friends and started his new project just by himself. Further on appeared one more member of the project, Ptyza (as a second vocalist and designer).
In 2008 Fiction City finished their first album "Further Degradation is Possible" in the Empty Studio built by Wayne in the basement of his house.
During the first 2 weeks their track When I'm Alone gained 6th place in Russia's top 400 of the underground music.
Fiction City define their music as Industrial Rock. The main themes of their lyrics are loneliness, emptiness, multiple personality, anger, and suicide.
