In the one year since Fall Against Fate’s first CD “Signals” was released, the band has undergone some internal changes that could have destroyed any other band on the rise. This was not the case for the Hertfordshire 5 piece who discovered that a little malfunction is not enough to stop a band this driven for good.
Formed in 2008 by a group of friends who wanted nothing more but to write music and enjoy doing it, Fall Against Fate was fixed on making their post-hardcore/tech potion a different breed that people would remember. After several gigs in their local town, a lot more than just the local citizens began to notice. Later in 2009 they released an 8 track CD ‘Signals’ which attracted the interest of people far and wide, and then began reworking their line-up to finally realise the vision original band members Tom Saunders and Lewis Ryder had from the band’s outset.
Since then Fall Against Fate have shared the stage with a vast array of respected bands and played in some impressive venues.
Fall Against Fate constantly leave fans more than satisfied with their creative, visually alluring live show, and addictive song structure. They have combined emotional lead melodies, with brutal, technical, heavy and catchy riffs. The results are proving to be sensational, and are being recognised by all listeners willing to give them a chance. “Fall Against Fate does what every other band in the Technical Metal genre tries to do... just much better, this stuff is so heavy, it sounds great" says Matt Greiner of August Burns Red.
Now, armed with a superior new record and a solid new line-up, Fall Against Fate have returned to the scene a stronger force than ever before. “If Not For Ourselves” the band’s sophomore EP is to be self released on December 3rd and looks to make a serious mark in the UK music scene. The band have finally come into their own as a technically gifted and committed 5-piece group, a group who cannot be missed.
If Not For Ourselves is a forward-thinking record that displays bigger choruses, heavier guitars and Fall Against Fate’s soon-to-be-signature approach to looking past the tired conventions set by far too many bands within today’s heavy music genres.
Great things are in store for Fall Against Fate and the many who follow them do so positively. Join them? Your choice. Love them or hate them, Fall Against Fate are here to stay.
