We Are The Fallen Announces Circus Themed Show

We Are The Fallen guitarist Ben Moody has posted the following update online, announcing the band's forthcoming "Cirque Des Damnés" event:

"In about 10 days, on January 22 at the Avalon Theater in Hollywood, California at 7:00 p.m., I'm producing a circus called Cirque Des Damnés, which translates into 'Circus Of The Damned,' and it's just that. It's going to be a carnival-style event thrown into the unpredictability of a rock and roll show — bigger than we've ever done before. There are going to be aerial acts and old-school freakshow freaks, there's going to be a burlesque show and a woman is going to swallow a very big balloon and then bring it back up.

"I can't promise this is a family-friendly show, but what I can promise you is that you will never see anything quite like tonight. So, please, if there was ever a time you were going to travel for a show, we need people here to experience this night, this would be the one — this is the one that will make your drive worth it. Carpool, bring some friends, we're gonna be giving stuff away, it's gonna be amazing."

"For any of you that were not already aware, the next single we are releasing to radio will be the title-track from our debut album, 'Tear The World Down.' We are very excited to start this next chapter as 'Tear The World Down' starts getting added at radio stations in October. We are proud to unveil this cover-artwork for the single, as well as announce the winner of our latest contest.

"Recently we asked fans to guess which song would be our next single by submitting their own cover-artwork for that song. The winner is: Kelly Tobias, from Cincinnati, Ohio. Not only did Kelly guess the correct song, but she also submitted this great cover-art. A huge 'Thank You' to everyone else who submitted entries. There were a lot of amazing art submissions, and we were all so impressed. Our debut album 'Tear the World Down' is also now available on 12-inch vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. This collectible vinyl version is only available in limited numbers, so try to grab a copy while you can."

We Are The Fallen Readies First Single and Tour

Universal Republic Records' We Are The Fallen will unleash their first single, "Bury Me Alive," exclusively via the digital domain on February 2nd. The fivesome is comprised of the original members of multiplatinum band Evanescence, guitarists Ben Moody and John LeCompt along with drummer Rocky Gray, joined by American Idol finalist Carly Smithson on vocals. Acclaimed bassist Marty O’Brien (Disturbed and Static-X, among others) rounds out We Are The Fallen.

The group is already preparing to give fans a live taste of the reportoire fueling their upcoming Universal Republic debut album, due out later in the year - hitting the road in support of Finnish rock stalwarts H.I.M.

Guitarist Ben Moody has been publicly crediting the group's unique chemistry as the driving force behind We Are The Fallen, describing Carly Smithson's role as a "true partner," and a key component to We Are The Fallen's overall sound. Moody left the platinum-plus breakthrough rock act Evanesence in 2003, and has since co-written major hits for Chris Daughtry and Kelly Clarkson among others. Evanescence’s groundbreaking 2003 album, "Fallen," spent 43 weeks on the Billboard Top Ten Albums Chart, selling 15 million copies worldwide, and 7 million + albums in the U.S. alone.

For Smithson, We Are The Fallen completes her dream - after exiting American Idol - of becoming a creative force in a "vital" band environment. Carly Smithson was a sixth place finisher during Season 7 of the television series American Idol.

Ex-Evanescence's Members Form We Are The Fallen

Billboard.com reports: Ben Moody predicts that his just-unveiled new band, We Are The Fallen, will enjoy a peaceful co-existence rather than mortal combat with his old group, Evanescence.

"We wish them the best," Moody, who co-founded Evanescence with singer Amy Lee in 1995 and left the band 2003 after co-writing its multi-platinum debut, "Fallen," tells Billboard.com. He formed We Are The Fallen earlier this year with original Evanescence members John LeCompt on guitar and Rocky Gray on drums, adding bassist Marty O'Brien and "American Idol" Season 7 finalist Carly Smithson on vocals.

We Are The Fallen has released its first song, "Bury Me Alive," on its official web site, WeAreTheFallen.com. Rather than bring out an album, Moody says the group plans to release new material sporadically via the Internet; another track is due out in September before the quintet hits the road and then the band will release two songs every eight weeks. Moody says We Are The Fallen is considering a terrestrial CD for 2010 that may contain extended versions of the songs as well as orchestral interludes and perhaps even live recordings and footage from the tour.

Besides its new material, We Are The Fallen does plan to play songs from "Fallen" on tour; the group even played that album's "Going Under" at a press conference on Monday in Los Angeles.

You can also hear the band's new song on their MySpace player here.
