LEST WE FAIL is a newly formed Heavy Metal group out of Regina SK. Canada. Heavy only begins to describe their sound, and their music hits you hard and leaves your head bangin’ long after their ground shaking set is delivered! LEST WE FAIL is currently putting together a 6 song demo compilation, with each song being released on myspace as they are completed. “Regret For You” is the first addition to this compilation, and has received over 800 plays within the first month of the track being released! Decending is next on the list, and will be released by mid June of 2009! Aside from working in the studio, the group continues to write new material to expand their set list, and polish their live performance… Which has already received numerous acclimations from touring bands that have played with this group.
LEST WE FAIL was formed by Guitarist Mitch Riemer, and Vocalist Lee Mcrury in 2007. The songs were heavily based in guitar riffs written by Mitch, who took alot of time to work each riff over… and over until the perfect melodies and harmonics could be achieved. Over the next few years, the two experimented with different arrangements, tones, and members until the perfect combination was reached! In late 2007 the band was approached by long time friend and guitarist Ryan Jorgenson who took on the task of laying the crushing bass lines to the rhythm’s Mitch was writing. Jeff Senft joined the group in late 2008, and rounded off the sound with his technical shredding style, and blazing fast riffs. The band however, had yet to find a drummer that could deliver the tight rhythm they needed. Their search ended when Mitch was contacted by long time friend and drummer Jay Lee, who took the project head on with his aggressive drumming style. Accompanied by the powerful throaty vocals from Lee.. the band developed a sound that is as tight as it is crushing!! After just a few short weeks… the band played their first show at the Exchange in Regina SK, and have been busy in the studio recording their demo’s to be released on myspace ever since!
LEST WE FAIL has also been assisting numerous indie bands from various parts of the country with setting up shows, and helping promote the out of town acts. Meggido, a band from Calgary AB is set to play a show with LEST WE FAIL on June 29th 2009 at The Gaslight Saloon in Regina. The band will then take the stage with Vexen from Prince George BC on Sept 4th 2009 also at The Gaslight Saloon. LEST WE FAIL takes pride in being contacted by these bands, as it is a really good opportunity for the band to extend their influence beyond the Saskatchewan borders, and make connections for future tour plans!
LEST WE FAIL are currently looking for Local Radio endorsement, Management, Booking Agents, and a Record Label to distribute their music. Do not let the short time this band has been together fool you… Their music can only be described by the 3 H’s…. HARD, HEAVY… and HIT you with a brick!!!! In the words of Karl Schubach from MISERY SIGNALS “ I don’t know what it is about this band.. they don’t sound exactly like any other band I’ve heard, and something about that guys voice just makes me want to hit people!”. If you have yet to hear enough to make you contact these guys.. just give their songs a listen, and check out the LIVE video’s on myspace. You will not be disappointed!!!
