Just thought I'd post a small update so you know what we've been doing with ourselves. At the moment we're locked away in our little studio writing songs for our next album. It's going very well and we have 5 completed songs (2 of which you can hear on our myspace www.myspace.com/thefalltherise) plus 1 more on the verge of completion. They are sounding amazing if I do say so :-) Very different to the songs on Interlopers in places as well.
We're aiming to get another 6 or 7 songs done before we go and record them so we'll keep you posted with progress.
In other news, we're playing at The Public in West Bromwich on 2nd October so come down and say hello if you're in the area. You'll get to hear most of these new songs as well!

We were lucky enough to share the stage with our old 'gig buddies' The Killerest Expression. It was great to see them play again and I'm hoping we get to do many more shows with them. Top band.
Thanks to all those who came down and made the night a success and we'll hopefully do another around Christmas time. In the meantime, we're booking all the gigs we can at the moment so keep an eye on our Myspace page for updates. If you're a promoter and can help us out, get in touch.
We should have some photos online from the evenings fun so keep an eye out for those too!
See you soon!

- As Close to an Apology as You'll Get
- Little Victories
Both sound stunning so massive thanks to Gavin and Gary for all their hard work yesterday. You'll be able to hear these songs on our MySpace next week but for now, I'm off on my hols!

We've been kind of stuck under all of the unwanted 'business' crap surrounding our 1st album Interlopers, and while it is still a really fine debut album and we're still really proud, it was nearly 4 years ago when we first started recording the music that would later become Interlopers. 4 damn years!!! The really is no point dwelling on why this has taken so long...the point is - We're ready for something new now and by jove, we've got a nice batch of new songs that are really, really good. :-)
Its also worth noting that this will be the first recording with our new bass player Rich which is pretty special. We're not gonna record all the new songs straight away but we've picked 3 (or maybe 2) for when we go into the studio this 1st time. Gavin Monaghan (who has recently worked with the like of Editors, The Twang and many many more) will be producing us which is gonna be pretty damn good. Keep your eyes out for updates on here and no doubt those new songs up on our MySpace very soon.
Speak soon! - Simon

We're in the studio to record a couple of songs on 4th July with Gavin Monaghan, we hope you like them when we get around to streaming them.
Night night, don't let the bed bugs bite.

Anyway, as previously mentioned we are playing what the young 'uns like to call a "gig" on Weds night at Academy 3 (see also, Bar Academy) with the band Failsafe. I'm very much looking forward to further damaging my eardrums, in the hope of one day owning an ear trumpet. Those are tha bomb, yo!
We're expected to be there at ridiculous o'clock though to load our equipment in. This isn't a new phenomenon by any means, but it still baffles me why some venues want bands there hours before the gig is due to start since it will mean either:
a) We're waiting around for the sound engineer to turn up or;
b) We do a soundcheck early and still have to wait around, this time for the show to start.
Unfortunately we won't be able to get there at the requested time due to work but I've got to be honest, I'd rather just have a 5 minute line check before we go on than wait around - hopefully that won't annoy the sound man too much! A pissed off sound man is a band's worst enemy!
Anyway, if you do make it down we'll be playing a few new songs and it'd be nice to see a few friendly faces (unfriendly faces aren't so desirable but we can't afford to be picky).
In summary, COME ROCK WITH US.

We've also booked a gig at the Sunflower Lounge which we're going to be setting up and promoting. It's going to be with the rather bloody excellent Killerest Expression who we haven't gigged with in many a year so it's going to be a pretty special night I think. More details on this one as we get them....

Since new bass player Rich has come on board, we've been writing songs like there's no tomorrow and we're already spoilt for choice in terms of what to record. They're all sounding pretty damn cool. As soon as we record, we'll get em up on myspace for everyone to hear. It's about bloody time we moved on from Interlopers!
