Hailing from basically the middle-of-nowhere West Virginia, fallfiftyfeet
are bringing a structured chaos to the metalcore genre. On their new EP, Lonely If You Go
, out August 26th, the band emphasize complex rhythms with major choruses and reality-driven lyrics.
Operating outside-the-box, fallfiftyfeet self-recorded guitars and vocals while Adam Cichocki at Timber Studios (Kaonashi, Soul Blind) recorded drums (contributed by Signs of the Swarm drummer Bobby Crow) and mixed and mastered the EP. While written at different times, the songs on Lonely If You Go form a cohesive element with much of the lyrics dealing with love and aquatic imagery. Following the band’s 2021 album Twisted World Perspective, everything about the EP is larger, showcasing what to expect as the band progresses. Influences like Every Time I Die and Alexisonfire clearly show through, but the band also took inspiration from the sugary songwriting of acts like Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. Those catchy moments shine just as much as the feverish ones in the three songs across the EP, making fallfiftyfeet a complex act worth paying attention to.
fallfiftyfeet is David Wallace – Vocals, James Becca – Vocals/Guitar, and Zac Clevenger – Vocals/Bass.
