FALL HAS COME is a very interesting band that came my way. So much so that I had to interview them. Anders Ekdahl ©2017

Was it hard to come up with a name? What does the name mean to you? How important is it to have the right name?
-To find the right name is very hard and maybe the most important thing for a band. Our purpose was to enclose in a name the concept of rebirth and calm, because we believe that autumn is not just a season, but also a mood.

Who would say have laid the foundation for the kind of sound you have? Who are your heroes musically and what have they meant to you personally and to the sound of your band?
-Our sound come from everything we’ve listened from the 80’s ’till today. We love that old aggressive sound with distortion, but we also like the new kind of rock sound. Our heroes are of course thirty seconds to mars, nickelback, foo fighters, skid row, jimmy eat world.

When you play slow do you have to think differently arranging the music than if you play faster and vice versa?
-The album was conceived to be like a movie soundrack, so there’s no difference between slow songs or fast songs. There’s the same emphasis in all our songs.

Will your music work in a live environment? What kind of stage environment would best suit your music; a big stage or a small club?
-From our past experience in Russia with Yellowcard and in Romania with Evanescence we’ve got a new vision for composition. We’ve learned a lot and every song from our upcoming album fits perfectly in a live environment. To play in front of a thousand people will always be amazing, but the warmth of a small club is amazing too.

It is very hard to be 100% satisfied. Everybody seems to be disappointed with something they have released. Is there something that you in hindsight would have done differently on this your latest recording?
-We’re very satisfied with our new recordings, because we’ve done alot of sound research before starting the production of Nowhere.

Promotion can be a bitch. Even today with all different platforms it can be hard to reach out to all those that might be interested in your music? What alleys have you used to get people familiarized with your band?
-Yes, promotion could be very hard, but we trust the work of our label Sliptrick Records.

‘To me art work can be the difference between bust or success. What to you is a great front cover? What should a cover have to make it great? ‎
-Good artwork should be attractive and catch the eye of people to make them listen the album.

Do you feel that you are part of a national scene? Is a local/national scene important for the development of new bands?
-Now we feel part of the national scene, but our next achievement is to be part of international scene. Of course the national scene is very important to let a band grow and get more fans to emerge.

I could just be me but I got the feeling that the live scene is not what it used to be. Could be that more and more people use the net to discover bands instead of going out and supporting new bands live. What is you experience with the live scene?
-Actually live scene is not the same as the past. We’ve been lucky to play in great venues as headliner or as support and we’ve always seen people happy to discover and see a new band.

What does the future hold?
-We hope the future will hold great things for us and we will do our best and work hard with our Sliptrick Records family to do great things together.
