How did ‘Fall Against Fate’ begin?
Fall Against Fate began as a vision. We wanted to create music we wanted to hear and would enjoy playing. A few friends got together and started jamming cover songs and that’s how it all started, since then we have had various line up changes but we now feel we have the best line up we could possibly have.
How long have you been together?
This current line up of the band has been together for just over a month but altogether Fall Against Fate is just over 2 years old.
If you could, how would you want to change the world?
Grant everyone access to basic human rights that they should already have
What other bands are you influenced by?
Fall Against Fate has a wide range of influences which we try and combine together in order to portray our sound. These include bands such as August Burns Red, Architects, Structures, Volumes, Parkway Drive etc… We all listen to a wide range of music, we love acoustic bands, RnB bands, we pretty much listen to everything.
If you could only get one song heard by the whole world, what would it be?
Our forthcoming single would be an awesome song for the whole world to hear. We feel we have progressed a lot as band since our EP and that it is our best work to date so it would be the perfect track to show off to the world! It’s out in November.
Apart from other bands what influences you?
Our surrounding often influence us a band, whatever is going on around us or personal things that have happened or are happening to us often influence us to write the music that we write. We also gain influence from a lot of fiction too, it’s good to create cool stories through lyrics.
Could you sum yourselves up in 3 words?
Energetic, Heavy, Honest
Where is your favourite place to play?
We’ve done some crazy shows but so far our favourite place to play has to be venues in London, because it’s local to us and there are always a lot of familiar faces at the shows, they’ve had to put up with us the longest, so it’s always nice to come back to a welcoming crowd.
Do you get a lot of female attention?
Some of us have girlfriend’s, but some of us do get female attention which is always pretty cool for them!
What’s the craziest gig you’ve ever done?
It has to be the shows we played in the summer in Barnet, London. The stage was big and the crowd was nuts, plenty of stuff to hang off of and jump off of. The crowds were pretty large and were up for a party which is always fun!
If you could play with anyone who would it be?
It would be a dream to play with all the bands that influence us, August Burns Red would be a huge highlight for me. But playing with any band no matter how “big” they are is always a huge honour, it’s always amazing to hear some great new music that you’ve never heard before and meet some great people along the way.
What’s the best thing about your band?
I’d say the best thing about our band is how we all get along. It’s nice to just be able to sit with 4 of your best friends and talk then get up on stage a few hours later. Also, we love keeping in touch with our fans which I think is a good thing!
Are any of your songs based on personal experiences?
I think almost every single song is about a personal event that has happened to at least one of us. The usual things such as break ups are often vented through lyrics and the aggressive side of our music.
What’s the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
“Turn your guitar down and hit it as hard as you can” Paul got that when recording with Ed Sokolowski (The Eyes Of A Traitor, Lecarla etc…)
What’s next for ‘Fall Against Fate’?
We head into the studio on November 1st to track the debut single off of our debut full length CD, then we are shooting a music video for that. We have also just signed a lovely new management and booking deal with The Alexia Agency so we will be touring like mad men for the rest of the year and beyond! Then some time in 2012 we will be releasing our first full length album along with a few other treats. Keep in touch!
