“The 1-2 Punch” – See what BIG announcements Above The Fall has to make, and how YOU, and your friends can ALL be a part of it!
Hey guys, thanks for visiting our new website. We’d like to welcome you to our new weekly blog. This week we have some really exciting news to announce! Our debut E.P. is finally done, and it’s slated for an end of March release with plans for a big celebration weekend at 3 different venues in North, South, and Central New Jersey. This will be the official launch of our new cd.
It was a complete honor to work with Dove and Grammy nominated producer, Billy Smiley, along with a number of professional studio musicians, and to be able to record this long anticipated album at the world renowned, Dark Horse Recording Studio in Franklin, TN.
We had written a number of songs over the course of the summer and narrowed them down to the ones that we believed would best define our sound. Being original is something that is important to us as a band, and we want to encourage you to always be true to who YOU are as well. It’s a phrase we hear a lot in society. “Always be true to yourself.” So whether you are an aspiring musician, artist, athlete, or actor, or maybe you are still trying to figure out who you want to be, find your niche. Find your purpose, and don’t let anyone change who you are!
Speaking of standing out from the crowd, we pride ourselves in trying to come up with the most original and entertaining live show we can put together. We incorporate things like rapping, guitar solos, dueling drum battles, and lots of other cool things that you’ll have to experience for yourself, which brings us to our final announcement. Have you ever wanted to be in a professional music video? Well here’s your chance! At the end of March, we are planning to shoot a performance video for our new single, “Hands In The Air” at a location right here in our home state of New Jersey.
So don’t miss out on all of the new and exciting things we have in store. There is a lot to look forward to and it’s right around the corner, so we need your help with 3 things: #1) We need you to SAVE THE DATE for the music video shoot AND the release weekend concerts, and make sure you come on out for what is sure to be a great time. The dates are Friday, March 13th – Crosspoint Church, Farmingdale (Concert), Friday, March 20th – Kull Youth Center, Ocean City (Concert and Video Shoot), Saturday, March 21st – The Strand Theater, Lakewood (Concert and Video Shoot). #2) Help us spread the word by telling EVERYONE you know about the video and the release weekend, because there are awesome incentives for bringing as many people as you can! And lastly, #3) Be sure to LIKE us on Facebook to help show your support, and stay informed about all the BIG things that are still to come for Above The Fall.
We recognize that NONE of this will be possible, (or as fun) without YOU, the fans, so please, JOIN US on this incredible journey, and help us to make 2015 a year to remember!
