Take one part high-energy pop punk, one part head-bangin' hardcore, season liberally with catchy, compelling vocals, a dash of party, and a love of cut-off band shirts and beer - that's the recipe for FALLSTATE, a band of young up-and-comers hailing from Auckland, New Zealand.
Formed in 2016, the band has quickly drawn attention thanks to their high-octane, fiery brand of pop-punk and their reputation for explosive live shows, with their music being described as "f*****g relentless" (Channel1) and "a momentous cacophony of harmonics and noise that gloriously spills its guts out without pretentiousness" (Muzic.net.nz).
No strangers to hard work, the band has toured extensively throughout New Zealand and Australia, playing alongside names such as Flirting With Disaster, Coridian, MISHAP, Purity, Silence The City, Dead Favours, and False Start. They have recently released two singles 'Live Forever Or Die Trying' and 'Epilogue' from their upcoming sophomore EP, which is being mixed by NZ punk legend Chazz Rabble.
