Crimson Falls has issued the following end-of-year update and announcement about signing to Rising Records:
"Hello everyone, time for a bigger news update on Crimson Falls; we’ve got lots of good news to share with you! First of all we’re very happy to announce that we’ve signed to Rising Records (UK) for a release of our last full cd ‘Fragments of Awareness’; scheduled for early March 2011!
"This means that this album will be easily available outside Belgium/Holland as well through Plastic Head Distribution ànd that the album will be supported by a nice promo campaign in the UK & Europe. We believe this cooperation can push us to a new level and we consider it an honour to share the labels roster with bands such as Trigger The Bloodshed, Bleed From Within, Sworn Amongst & of course our buddies in Moker. We hope to cross the channel in support of the UK-release for the first time in March or April 2011!
"This is also a good time to thank our previous label Genet Records for all the support they’ve given us these last years. We’ve got great memories of our appearance at Ieperfest 2009 and of our shows with our heroes in All Shall Perish, The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Despised Icon & Origin. This is something we won’t forget and will appreciate throughout the rest of our band’s existence. Thank you Genet!
"Other good news (for the guitar playing dudes in the band) is that we also inked an endorsement deal with ESP Guitars, one of the leading brands for metal guitars! Once the orders are placed we expect our new babies to arrive halfway 2011. We’re honoured to connect our name to such a respected company and are siked to play on these pearls! Meanwhile we adapted to the new myspace profile as well. Check here for the new lay-out. Thanks to email@example.com for setting it up for us and doing an awesome job. More...

Belgian act Crimson Falls has checked in with the following update about recruiting a new drummer:
"Crimson Falls is excited to announce that Michael Stevenick will be the new CF-drummer! Michael is 18 years old and a new talent in the scene. He replaces Sigi Loots who left the band at the end of 2009. Mitch already played his first shows with us in Foetz (Lux), Ieper & Oostende and that was a blast; literally. Despite his young age we believe Mitch is the right man for the job and his skills, speed & musical taste will blow a breath of fresh air through the band. Of course we are trilled to have a complete line-up again and put the band’s pace at the maximum again. Expect new shows, new (weekend-)tours, new songs & new recordings asap!
"This would also be a good time to thank our interim-drummer Friso Van Wijck again for stepping in after Sigi’s abrupt departure. Thanks to Friso we didn’t have to cancel any show and he gave us the chance to take our time to search for a new permanent drummer. Those who visited one of our shows earlier this year will know Friso did an amazing job. Thanks mate!"
Michael had to say the following about joining Crimson Falls: More...
Crimson Falls has issued the following new year update about their upcoming tour plans:
"German weekend tour/frist shows with Friso: 2010 has kicked off for CRIMSON FALLS as well & it started with a bang! Last weekend we played at the cd release shows of our German buddies Lower Hell in Stuttgart & Achern. We had a blast playing there! In Stuttgart we hit the stage at Juha West, a cool youth club with a very enthusiast audience. The day after was even more ass kicking; we played at a packed club in Achern, + 300 paying visitors, horns up! Thanks to Lower Hell for inviting us for their cd-presentations and making this a weekend to remember!
"These shows were also the first shows we did with our interim-drummer Friso Van Wijck. All we can say is that Friso did an amazing job! It only took him two rehearsals with us in the week before the shows to nail a complete live set. Of course we’re looking forward to bring Friso to our next shows in Belgium & Holland as well. Come & check him out on one of the occasions listed below! More...
Belgium's Crimson Falls has issued the following statement about seeking a new drummer:
"Our drummer Sigi Loots has decided to leave Crimson Falls. Sigi was one of the founding members of the band, being with us since spring 2002. After 7,5 years investing lots of time and effort in the band Sigi couldn’t bring up enough motivation any longer to keep his input in the band on the same level. Sigi will play his last show with us on 19.12.2009 at the Negasonic in Aalst, so make sure you’re there to give Sigi a nice goodbye-show! We regret Sigi's decision but we want to thank him for everything he did for the band during these past years & we are grateful for everything we achieved with him. We couldn’t have done it without you!
"Sigi’s departure doesn’t mean the end of Crimson Falls; not at all. The four remaining members are ready to keep this train going more than ever! Friso Van Wijck (ex-Polluted Inheritance, Strych.Nine) will step in as a temporary replacement for Sigi. This means that we won't have to cancel any show! So you can still come over and mosh with us on the following occasions: More...
Crimson Falls has issued the following announcement about parting ways with their guitarist:
"Crimson Falls decided to part ways with guitar player Ringo Van Dingenen. A hard decision to take as Ringo was with us from the start of the band 7,5 years ago and on a personal level Ringo and the rest of the band still got along well. However; Ringo’s personal life made it impossible for him to invest the necessary time and effort in the band for quite some time already, which made this decision inevitable if we wanted to keep the band running on the same pace. We thank Ringo for everything he did for CF over the years and won’t forget all the good times we shared.
"Meanwhile we welcome Jeroen Foré as our new guitar player. Jeroen already played in several bands such as Catafalque & Wretched Vixen and he is currently starting up a new project band called Strich.Nine together with members of Spoil Engine, Morda, Cypher & Polluted Inheritance. Jeroen was the obvious choice for us as he already rehearsed with us regularly over the past 1,5 years and he already replaced Ringo on 6 shows in that period. As he is a very talented guitar player we are looking forward to start working on new material together with him. Jeroen already played with us last Friday at ‘t Zaaltje in Morkhove. We are currently working on new shows and new (weekend-)tours so watch out for that."
