Fridays Fallen were a four-piece band from Swindon, in which the close friends decided to do in 2001. The original line-up was: Ed, Chris, Mox, Matt. Ed and Chris who have been great friends, working in Duck Son and Pinker, a guitar shop in Swindon, decided to make music as they had musical experiences and loved the music scene. They set off doing quite a lot of gigs around the South of the UK, in Bath, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Swindon and other areas, gaining a lot of respect from people and loving the music. Record label dealers watched them play and was impressed with what they was doing. Also with excellent stage presence on the stage with Chris, jumping, aload of hand gestures and his trademark, swinging the microphone, whilst Ed would be standing tall, with his guitar up high, roaring, jumping off the drum and not afraid to move around the stage. They were definetly one of the best, new up and coming bands around in the South.
Steve Beckmore - “An explosion of energy across the stage met by outstanding of what is Fridays Fallen”
Their EP which was titled: “Drowning Summer EP” which featured script writing font with two pairs of converses, worn, stood up, a black pair and a pink pair, next to eachother. A sign of romance? The EP contained four tracks (which you can currently listen to on this Myspace page) and was released in 2004, at the shop Duck Son and Pinker and any gigs they played.
The tracks were:-
01. 12pm, le rue de Mazarine.
02. Forgetmeknots will not grow this Summer.
03. My Best Suit and the smell of Vitriol.
04. Will November never end…
They also had self-titled badges, Posters and Stickers for sale.
The EP was a big hit and they sold many copies and carried on getting good praise from the crowds. Everything was going right for them.
Unfortunetly, in the middle of 2004, things began to happen, the band mate, Matt had left the band because he wanted to travel to New Zealand. So Ed called in an experienced drummer and a school friend of Jason Bone for drums. After that, Mox deicded to leave a couple of months after die to personal reasons so he was replaced by Rixx (Who is now the singer for the metal band, Eternal Lord) . After all the happening, the line up was complete once again and things were back on track.
With a soon to be released of a second EP, which the title I have forgotten about.
Sadly, a couple of months/gigs after the new line up, the band ended up calling it a day and splitting their own ways. Chris wanted to do a Jazz band, Ed wanted to do heavier material, and that was the end for Fridays Fallen and their love breaking songs.
