Falling Red – “Empire Of The Damned” (www.facebook.com/fallingredofficial)
Bursting outta the bleak border town of Carlisle come Falling Red, a band who in just 3 years have gone from playing every flea pit in northern England to supporting Steel Panther in London! Leaving towns and cities afire in their wake, such was the band’s popularity that they Pledged this debut which hit its 100% target funding, pulling in the likes of Peter Maher (U2, Rolling Stones, Linkin Park) to produce it. Despite having a glam / sleaze look I’d say these guys play a modern high energy rock more in vein of Skid Row and Hanoi Rocks with hard chugging riffs and a smacking rhythm to boot. Layered across the top come Rozey’s pure rock dawg vox backed by plenty of air punching choruses demanding crowd shout outs and Jayde Starr’s dagger thru my heart soloing on sweat drenched, adrenaline fueled songs like ‘We Are Reckless’, ‘Lonely Way To Die’ and ‘Change For No One’. No wonder Falling Red have rock n roll glory tattooed into their skins and proof that dreams can come true after all…..
