‘Style and substance with a passion for performance’
If nothing else these words roar out what The Fallen State is all about.
The Fallen State was raised in the Autumn of 2013... when five young men with a mutual love for powerful, anthemic and beautifully executed rock, found themselves in a room together. For these guys togetherness isn't just a dream but a reality… they have that extra, indescribable ‘musical magic’ tattooed across their songs… the artistic ink of five individuals harmonised into something greater than the parts.
Fresh from successful tours with Black Stone Cherry, US Grammy winners Halestorm, 3 Doors Down and fellow UK rockers Young Guns and Heavens Basement... they live for the live show, with their stylish take on the musical legends of both sides of the Atlantic from the Hammersmith Apollo through Rock City and Manchester Academy, to Download Festival and Ramblin’ Man Fair and to the club in your town...
Musically, The Fallen State combine the exuberant and soulful voice of singer Ben Stenning, the artful emotive phrasing of lead six-stringer Jon Price and a Dan Oke inspired harmonic wall of warm, contemporary rock guitars. Mix this beautiful meld with grooving and ruthless rhythms courtesy of drummer Rich Walker and bassist Greg Butler… there can only be one outcome… infectious, body-rocking songs that'll leave crowds hungry for more.
In only three years, they have developed a stunning reputation by selling out shows with their modern, incisive and inspiring performances allied to their prolific output of five lovingly crafted EPs (I,II,III, Crown Your Shadows and The View from Ruin) in the same brief period of time. This reputation further grew this year with a succesful headline tour in the Spring and a14 date UK summer tour with Puddle of Mudd and Trapt backed up by heavy single airplay including the critically acclaimed video for iTunes #4 charting track 'Nova' on Kerrang TV, Scuzz! and BBC Radio.
Wherever you are right now, The Fallen State is rising… and this year we’ll be delivering our hi-octane, groove-ridden, rock n' roll triumph to a venue near you. We will see you on the road!
