Latest Dead To Fall News
Below is our complete Dead To Fall news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
A new eCard is online to spread the word about Prosthetic Records label-mates Himsa and The Acacia Strain hitting the road for Darkest Hour's "Undoing Ruin 2006 Tour" alongside A Life Once Lost and Dead To Fall. Spanning 38 dates across the United States, the tour will begin February 17.
Himsa will embark on several headlining shows along the way to support the Feb. 7 release of Hail Horror before meeting up with the "Undoing Ruin" lineup in Latham, NY to kick the tour off. Hail Horror, the follow up to the critically-acclaimed Courting Tragedy And Disaster, has already been labeled as one of 2006's most anticipated releases by Decibel magazine, and sees the band heading in a thrashier direction while maintaining a commitment to tirelessly touring behind this album, maintaining their reputation as seasoned road warriors. The band will later head back to Europe to follow up its successful run of the continent with 3 Inches of Blood in December 2005.
Massachusetts' The Acacia Strain will be a part of the tour fresh out of recording tracks with veteran producer Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage) for the upcoming album The Dead Walk. A release date for the record has not been determined, but The Acacia Strain will nonetheless head out on the road with a handful of new live-worthy tracks, hand in hand with the same win-them-one-by-one mentality the band has built its base upon.

Springfield, Massachusetts' THE ACACIA STRAIN are set to play a one-off show supporting Shadows Fall on Friday, Dec. 30. Meanwhile, The Acacia Strain finished recording the tracks that will become The Dead Walk with producer Adam Dutkiewicz earlier in December. The album will be released through Prosthetic Records in late March, and will be the follow-up to 3750, the band's Prosthetic debut.
Come February, the band will hit the road with Darkest Hour, Himsa, A Life Once Lost, and Dead To Fall for a string of US dates through March.

Just off their highly successful tour with It Dies Today, Still Remains, Scars Of Tomorrow and Bullet For My Valentine, Jacknife has secured some January dates with Dead to Fall and Ion Dissonance. Here are the details of the upcoming run:
Jan. 19th Winchester Pavillion Lubbock, TX
Jan. 20th The Brick House Wichita Falls, TX
Jan. 21st Gypsy Tea Room Dallas, TX (also with Dryline)
Jan. 22nd Walter's on Washington Houston, TX
More Jacknife tour dates are expected to be announced soon.
HIMSA and THE ACACIA STRAIN will be teaming out to tear through the United States this February and March. The Prosthetic label-mates will help round out the melting pot of sounds along a string of North American dates that also features Dead To Fall, A Life Once Lost, and headliners Darkest Hour. Running the gamut from hardcore-infused metal to melodic death metal and back, Seattle’s HIMSA will offer direct support on the bill, while THE ACACIA STRAIN will supply crowds with the chest-crushing heaviness they have all but trademarked.
HIMSA will be on the road supporting their latest melodic-thrash tour de force, Hail Horror, which will see a Feb. 7 release through Prosthetic. No strangers to the road, HIMSA was most recently a part of Danzig’s Blackest of the Black 2005 tour, and is currently gearing up for a December run through Europe alongside 3 Inches of Blood, showcasing tunes from the band’s new album.
Meanwhile, Massachusetts’ THE ACACIA STRAIN will be touring in support of Victims, the band’s new full-length, set for a March 2006 release. The band has been playing regional gigs throughout New England in recent weeks, in preparation to entering the studio Dec. 1 to record new songs with Adam Dutkiewicz (Killswitch Engage, All That Remains), who was previously responsible for the bludgeoning sound of 3750, the band’s last record.

Dead To Fall are heading to Trax East to begin recording the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2004 album "Villainy and Virtue" with producer Eric Rachel. Rachel rejoins the band for round two – their previous collaboration was described in Revolver as, "Full of slab-like guitars and raging vocal growls, this brutish metalcore album will reach out of your speakers, beat you down, and steal your wallet." The great Paul Romano (Mastodon, Godflesh) returns to artwork for the cover – his images for "Villainy and Virtue" were some of the most striking to appear that year, and the band is eager to work with him again. The tentative title for the album is "Death and Rebirth" and singer Jon Hunt has said that it has a lot more classic metal elements than any previous Dead To Fall recordings. Expect the album in April 2006, and don’t miss Dead To Fall on tour in January 2006 with Ion Dissonance, where new songs from the album will be performed. Tour dates will be confirming shortly.

On Thursday, September 1st, I drove down to Jaxx in Springfield, Virginia to see Obituary, Napalm Death, and Dead To Fall play. This is a lineup that I would not normally have gone out to see, but one of my friends is a big Dead To Fall fan and I was interested in checking all of these bands out anyway, but I might not have gone to the show without any other motivation. As it turns out, my friend never showed up or returned my calls. (Note to self: get new friends that are into metal AND reliable). Having driven almost an hour to get there and paid $25 to get in, I was going to see this show anyway. More...

NAPALM DEATH frontman Mark "Barney" Greenway has commented on the band's upcoming North American tour with OBITUARY, which is scheduled to kick off in early September. Also appearing on the bill are DEAD TO FALL.
Says Barney: "We're very happy to be getting toghether with OBITUARY again because it will kind of rerprise the Campaign For Musical Destruction thing from the early Nineties, which was a lot of fun. Those guys are quite close friends of ours, and it will be interesting to see how they are live since their 'reformation.' I'm excited, but then again, aren't I always!!!!"
