Falling Red was born in 2007 in Carlisle, UK. Influenced by stadium rock bands such as Kiss and Metallica, they soon developed their own style and started writing their own material, giging relentlessly before being signed to Rocksector Records in 2009. They released their debut album ‘Shake The Faith’ in March 2010. One unexpected fan of the band was Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) who particularly liked the track ‘Out Of Control’, giving it ample airtime on his BBC 6 Rock Show.
In April 2011, after gigging non-stop for a full year, Falling Red released a 4 track E.P entitled ‘Hasta La Victoria Siempre’ through Rocksector Records. Each of the E.P’s 4 tracks have become live favourites, including the ballad ‘The Last Kiss Goodbye’, and the sing-along anthem ‘If You Aint’ Down With The Rock’. Off the back of this release, they secured a performance at Hard Rock Hell VI, as well as tour dates in support of Sebastian Bach, Magnum and GUN.
The beginning of 2012 saw the addition of two new members – Rhythm guitarist Jayde Starr & bass player Dann Marx. This resulted in influencing the musical direction of the band, building upon the massive amount of groundwork put in by vocalist Rozey and drummer Dave Sanders.
The band were the main support to Steel Panther for the duration of their November UK tour. A brand new single, ‘We are Reckless’, was released on November 5th 2012.
Falling Red did their own headline UK ‘Rock Revolution Tour’ in March 2013, before returning to write new material. A PledgeMusic campaign was launched in April to raise funds towards the recording of the album, ‘Empire Of The Damned’, due for release in January 2014. The band smashed their target and hit 100% within 5 days of launching the project.
