Recording Tomorrow!

One day to go until we record. Exciting times!
We now have 11 songs by the way. Last Saturday's rehearsal produced a final "heavy" number which is sounding really promising. We'll finalise that one later on tonight I think!

Keep an eye on the blog for updates as we record!

The Fall, The Rise are 4 friends from Birmingham. They also play rock music. Together they have been peddling their tuneful, hard-edged wares for over 5 years, during which time they have released the well reviewed Interlopers:

"This is a pretty damn killer rock album with hints of At the Drive-In and Biffy Clyro" - Lights Go Out Zine

"…the Midlands quartet have managed to filter the history of post-hardcore into their own individual and impressive sound" - Sandman Magazine

"this band actually aren’t afraid to mix up old and current sounds, trendy and not trendy, cheap haircuts and ridiculously overpriced ones." -

"The Fall, The Rise are a frighteningly good proposition" - Kerrang! Magazine

This is shortly to be followed by new album Standing On The Precipice.

The band’s goal is a simple one: Write music they enjoy playing. This invariably leads to songs dealing in quiet/loud dynamics, powerhouse drumming, fluid basslines, intricate guitar work and lyrics dealing with the fucked up human condition. The Fall, The Rise enjoy playing these songs so much, that they play them live in the hope others will like them too. Usually to half empty rooms. Those who are in attendance will find, however, that the band provide a high energy, intense live performance – These four friends care about the music they are crafting.

The Fall, The Rise hope you can take a little time out to listen to their music, enjoy it as much as they do and then come see them and make that room a little less empty. Thank you.
