Falling Through April Debut New Song And Video, “Desperate Measures”





Falling Through April Release New Song And Video, “Desperate Measures”


Charlotte, NC alt-rockers Falling Through April are premiering their dramatic new video for the song, "Desperate Measures."

"'Desperate Measures' is a song about not letting someone else bring you down or control you," says lead singer Mikaela Salazar, "that real 'charmer' that sneaks their way in and then you can’t get them out. It is an anthem for empowerment and just leaving those that try to drag you down behind."

The single is the newest material from Falling Through April, following their independent releases Take Flight (2012) and Risk and Reward EP (2015). In the last two years, they have toured with bands such as the Pretty Reckless and Flyleaf, and have performed at festivals, including Warped Tour and SXSW.

"We traveled to a little town called Newnan in Georgia to shoot the music video for “Desperate Measures” — it’s in the same area they film The Walking Dead," Salazar explains. "The set was on the grounds of this big textile manufacturing warehouse campus that seemed to never end. We actually needed an off-roading vehicle to move around. Filming was incredibly fun; the 18 hour days were not! There was even a point where people were literally falling asleep sitting in camping chairs in between takes.

"The hardest part about the whole process was making sure we caught the shots with the perfect lighting," she continues. "Because we were outdoors for the story line part of the shoot, we were dealing with elements outside of our control, and if you miss that small window for ‘The perfect shot,’ you either wait until the next day or you don’t get it. We shot the video late spring, and even then Georgia is very humid. We were drenched with sweat throughout the entire process. That actually helped with getting into character a bit – we didn’t shower for like three days to really ‘look the part’ for the post-apocalypse, shanty town storyline scenes. Director Jon King and our entire crew were unbelievable. Everyone worked so hard around the clock to make this happen, and we couldn’t ask for a better team."

“Desperate Measures” is the first single from the band’s new album “Zodiac”, which will be released in January 2018. FTA are currently in the process of booking their tour and more dates will be announced soon. In the meantime, be sure to catch them in Charlotte at one of the dates below.

Band-Maid MCM Comic Con Live Review/Feature - Fringe Festival 29/5/16

J-Rockers Band-Maid make first European performance at huge MCM Comic Con

Band-Maid, one of Japan’s up-and-coming all-girl rock acts, made their live debut to UK/Europe at MCM London Comic Con, which took place from 27-29th May 2016 at ExCel London, hosting the UK's biggest Modern Pop Culture Event.


The Tokyo quintet who formed in 2013, consisting of Miku (guitar/vocals), Saiki (vocals), Kanami (guitar), Akane (drums) and bassist Misa – have been building quite a reputation and fan-base all over with their blend of cute yet deadly rock music and stand out imagery (appropriately dressing as maids) whilst they unleash and deliver their seriously skilled and striking sounds. The concept of the maid outfit aesthetic stems from founder Miku’s experiences in the maid cafes of Akihabara – the Tokyo district known for otaku (‘geek’) culture and passion for rock music.


Through their music videos they have been reaping success and gaining well deserved attention, especially for the videos f…

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…
