“Every now and then, a band jumps and out grabs you, demands your attention and you forget about the genre, or what the singer looks like, or how good the drummer is. You get swept along, taken in and are left exhilarated. This is FALLSTATE...Even at this early stage they could take any stage anywhere in the world and hold their own.”
ABOUT THE BAND:
A high octane blend of aggressive riffs and catchy pop hooks defines Fallstate’s new release ‘Disorder & Symmetry’, a 7 track EP that deftly manoeuvres from thundering grooves and breakneck punk beats to pensive ballads and epic singalong choruses. With their middle fingers raised high and tongues firmly in their cheeks, Auckland’s most mischievous musical quintet are back!
Fallstate was formed in 2015 by 5 heavy metal fans looking for a positive outlet. This journey has led them to share the stage with renown international and local acts such as Mayday Parade, Written By Wolves, False Start, and Armed In Advance. They have accumulated over 10,000 Spotify streams from their last few singles alone, and have received excellent public and media response to the songs and accompanying videos.
The band has earned a reputation as an energetic and engaging live band, having toured extensively throughout New Zealand and even briefly in Australia supporting Purity on the NSW/Canberra leg of their farewell tour. Their shows have garnered highly positive reviews, especially as the band have worked to refine their performance to develop an engaging and professional live show.
