With their fast paced riffs and even harder breakdowns, Blessthefall is anything but just another hardcore rock band. Shorty after forming and dozens of sold out shows, the Arizona based band was signed and recorded their first album His Last Walk.
Following the album’s huge success, the guys of Blessthefall decided to part ways with their lead vocalist Craig Mabbit. With a position available and very large shoes to fill, the rest of the band went on to find the perfect fit to fill the void.
Adding Beau Bokan as their new voice, Blessthefall were more eager than ever to prove to their loyal fans that they were back in the game, and they were not going anywhere anytime soon. After Beau’s addition to the lineup, the five guys were signed to fearless Records and released their sophomore album Witness. With a handful of trips overseas and nonstop touring this past year, Blessthefall has risen up and are ready to win over the hearts of music fans all over the world, one show at a time.
Because it has now been over a year since the release of Witness, many fans have been eager in anticipating some new material from the quintet. But fans don’t fret; a new album is in the works. “We’re working on songs. We have one completely done as a band. I have a lot of material up my sleeve, and Beau’s working on lyrics and melodies,” says guitarist Eric Lambert. “I think we’re all looking forward to writing.”
As for their finished song, both Eric and Beau believe the fans will be thoroughly stoked. Lambert couldn’t be happier with their new child. “The one song we have now is awesome.” “It shreds probably ten times harder than anything on our old record.” added Bokan.
With the holiday season in full effect and tour winding down, the guys of Blessthefall will finally have a lull in their schedule. After the wrap up of the Congregation of the Damned tour, everyone will be able to enjoy a couple months before they are back on the road. Beginning at the end of February, Blessthefall will be on a short stint performing at Soundwave Festival in Australia. Following Soundwave, the five will hit the studio and record their thirds album which has been featured by Alternative Press as one of 2011’s most anticipated albums. Witness is out now on Fearless Records.
