The Fallen State have just released their new EP ‘The View from Ruin’, following on from their four critically-acclaimed previous EPs (I, II, III, and ‘Crown Your Shadows). ‘The View from Ruin’ is eagerly awaited by fans, and will be an excellent addition to the band’s repertoire, It is accompanied by a striking video for the single track, ‘Nova’, released 13th February 2017.
The Fallen State combines the exuberant, soulful voice of Ben Stenning, the artful expressive phrasing of lead six-stringer Jon Price, and Dan Oke’s inspired harmonic wall of warm, contemporary rock guitars. Into this fusion of talent, the band adds grooving, ruthless rhythms, courtesy of bassist Greg Butler and drummer Rich Walker. It’s a kick-ass recipe for rock success which creates infectious, energetic, body-rocking songs that leaves crowds hungry for more.
“The View From Ruin’ is, without doubt, the product of maturity in our song writing. It’s the collaboration of every band member having an influence and highlights the drive and togetherness within our band. As a whole, it represents everything we have experienced so far, and we’re beyond excited to show it to the world.” says Ben Stenning.
Guitarist Jon Price adds, “Nova is probably the most heartfelt song we have written to date. Members of the band have experienced loss in a deep way over the past few years. We hope the story of ‘Nova’ will resonate with the fans, and they will identify with the overall positive aspect of the song, as well as the sad elements seen in the video”
It’s a testimony to the band’s killer combo of passion and craft that The Fallen State has developed an impressive reputation, with their stylish take on the musical legacies of both sides of the Atlantic. They’ve released four EPs to date, with ‘The View from Ruin’ the fifth. They’ve achieved video and radio airplay of ‘Sinner’ on Scuzz, BBC, TeamRock, and Kerrang. Passionate performers, they live for the live show, and sell out shows with their modern, incisive, inspiring performances. The Fallen State has toured with Black Stone Cherry, 3 Doors Down, and US Grammy winners Halestorm; not to mention artists such as Trapt and fellow UK rockers The Treatment, Young Guns, and Heaven’s Basement.
