Official press release:
OC Hard Rockers Behind The Fallen have signed a deal with EMP Label Group who will release their debut LP As The Sky Falls Through on October 28th. The full-length offering will feature promo single “Satellite”, which has already been released with a lyric video that has already generated over 50,000 views, the bands 2013 single “You’re Just a Friend”, and “Reflections” a collaboration featuring The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith.
On the collaboration with Smith, singer Johnny Presley says:
“We connected with Telle through our management, and the opportunity came up to do a song together and obviously we jumped at it. We’re all huge fans, and Telle’s one of the most amazing frontmen in the business. We jumped into the studio with him for a day, there was great chemistry, and we cranked out ‘Reflections’, which turned out absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to get it out to the fans and look forward to, hopefully, performing the track with Telle live someday.”
First bursting onto the Orange County scene in 2011, BTF released their debut 6 song EP Pages of the Past, produced by Erik Ron, before embarking on several tours supporting their release with Assuming We Survive, Trapt, and their own headline tour.
In 2013, the band followed up with their single and video for “You’re Just A Friend”, with a renewed pop-punk infused direction that generated a new wave of huge attention for the band. BTF has since developed their sound into a finely tuned machine, deftly maneuvering between Hard Rock, Metal, and Pop Punk, behind the fierce melodic growl of vocalist Johnny Presley. After a year-plus hiatus the band emerged with a retooled lineup and team, and were brought to the attention of EMP head of A&R Thom Hazaert (by EMP Publicist Shauna O’ Donnell), the rest, as they say, is history.
As The Sky Falls Through hits stores on October 28th, 2016.
