All Else Fails Crowd Funding New Album

Canadian group All Else Fails today announces forthcoming album "The Forever Lie." Vocalist Barrett Klesko comments:

"Almost 4 years ago we released a little EP called 'Fucktropolis' that exceeded all our expectations. It’s been a long time following up with a new album, but we finally have the new songs ready to go, and we are about to unleash 'The Forever Lie.' We’re extremely excited about it and can’t wait to let you all in on it!"

After completing the tracking of the album, with mixing to begin soon along and artwork pending, All Else Fails ran into a snag. In order to give fans the best album possible, AEF needs some additional funding. The pre-release date is set for December 2016, with full album release set for late winter / early spring 2017.

In order to complete the production, AEF has started an IndieGoGo campaign here, and in return is offering some great exclusive perks such as an alternate personal CD artwork, along many others. More...

All Else Fails Posts "AntiMartyr"

All Else Fails just released a new political message with a video for "AntiMartyr," which can be seen below. Vocalist / guitarist Barrett Klesko comments:

"It's been a long road since we released 'Fucktropolis' almost 4 years ago, and since then we have been in almost constant member changeover hell. Some of it was good, like bringing back original drummer Ryan Biggs, but some, like losing our long time bassist Seedy Mitchell was much harder.

"We have a new bass player, the new album written and in pre-production and it is sounding fresh and awesome, but it was important to us to release 'Antimartyr' as a full single first. With that, it wouldn't have felt right with Mitch's voice coming out of the new guy’s mouth in the video, so we talked him into coming back for one last project, and I'm really happy with the turnout, it seems like a great way to send off an album that treated us so well, and move on to the next grand adventure. Hopefully one that won't take us another 4 years to follow up."

All Else Fails Announces Bassist Farewell Show

All Else Fails, the loud 'n heavy, lyrically conscious metal band from Edmonton, AB, today announces the departure of long time bassist Seedy Mitchell.

He will be performing his last show with the band on December 5th in Edmonton at the Rendez Vous Pub. With his departure, the band will be moving forward and is currently searching for a new bassist to work with on an upcoming release. Seedy Mitchell has issued the following statement on his departure:

"A Eulogy, to whoever gives a shit,

"This message is to set the record straight and quell speculation surrounding my departure from All Else Fails. First and foremost, I love this band. I love my band brothers, I love the management and I love the fans. You will always be my family and I hope there are no hard feelings, aside from my causing disappointment, between us. There has never been anything but honesty and heart within the band, within the band's music and in the decision making so with respect, I'm going to lay it all out there.

"For a long time I've been at war in my mind because the people involved in this project mean so much to me, but the fact is, I've lost my passion and desire to pursue music in this capacity, and I'm retiring from the idea. A negative and soulless outlook from anyone in a band reverberates throughout the entire project and will inevitably bring it down. For a long time I've felt like a boxed artist, a painter making prints, and I feel like I've been too busy being in a band to do what's right for me, and that's simply writing and recording. Expel the demons and move on. To me, the rest seems trivial and just slows that process down. Having said that, an artist never quits, so keep your ears open. You can expect music from two sources now, and in the meantime, I'll be standing next to you in the crowd, as an AEF fan. More...
