With their emotional lyrics and screaming guitar harmonies, this South Jersey five-piece plays high-energy rock with overtones of indie and punk. A recent win of the national Garageband.com / Verizon Wireless "Face Off" competition has vaulted them into the spotlight, and their September 2007 release 'Reaching The Red Line' is capitalizing on that. Clean melodic vocals, catchy hooks and fast, technical harmony guitar lines are mixed together with some softer indie sounds including an acoustic track to conclude the record. Produced by Chad Blinman (Saves The Day, The Get Up Kids, Face to Face, From Autumn to Ashes) and recorded at King Size Soundlabs (Built To Spill, Wayne Kramer, Wilco), 'Reaching The Red Line' is quickly developing an enormous fanbase for Fell Far Behind.
Born in 2001, Fell Far Behind has since proved themselves to be one of the most hard-working, ambitious, and talented upcoming bands in New Jersey.
Their existence began with a six song demo recorded at a local studio, followed by a four song EP - Chasing the Dream, recorded at the one and only Big Blue Meenie Studios in Jersey City (Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, Madball). These self-released recordings, combined with the bands dynamic, and musically crisp, live performances, earned the band a solid fan base and a record deal with NJ indie label - PumpkinEater Records. The Label funded and released Fell Far Behinds first LP entitled The First Annual (Also Recorded at Big Blue Meenie). Overall to date, the band has sold roughly 4000 records through touring and online sales.
Fell Far Behinds stamina has been tested by the vigorous and unforgiving trials of life on the road. They have emerged victorious from several excursions including an east-coast US tour, a full-scale US tour, and several outings consisting of their surrounding states. The band continues to seize every opportunity to perform and will stop at nothing to be heard. Fell Far Behind is proud to have shared the stage with Cartel, The Fight, Valencia, Days Like These, All Time Low, and Bowling for Soup.
Fell Far Behind is currently unsigned. The collapse of their label has only fuelled the band with an even greater drive and determination to be successful. Their most recent achievement was winning $25,000 in the nationwide radio contest – The Garageband.com / Verison Wireless “Face Off”. All of the winnings were put towards the production and marketing of their latest release “Reaching the Red Line”, released September 18, 2007.
Fell Far Behind has nothing to lose and has already dropped everything for the sake of their band. Since their formation in 2001, they have demonstrated endless hard work, persistence, and stamina, not to mention great music. Fell Far Behind will continue trudging forward and stretching their limits as they continue to persist in surviving the music world.
