Best Band You've Never Heard of: FallsStart
FallsStart is a three-piece rock/punk band comprised of singer/rhythm guitarist/bassist/violinist Davey Leatherwood, lead guitarist/manager Adrian Cottmeyer, and drummer Jaron Seuis. Their sound combines the best of their wide-ranging influences and hard-nosed technical proficiency to create something wholly their own.
FallsStart is based out of Honolulu, but the band members have played and practiced together around the globe. Leatherwood and Cottmeyer first met in 2006 while stationed in South Korea on active duty for the United States Air Force. The two quickly bonded over their love of music, and began jamming together. In 2008, Leatherwood opted to join the Air Force music troupe Tops in Blue, where Seuis played drums.
Cottmeyer was the natural choice for lead guitarist and he assumed his role in the band during the fall of 2008. With a tight budget and the burning desire to cut an album, the band drove out to Audyssey Studios in Oklahoma City and immediately got to work during the summer of 2009.
2011 saw FallsStart complete their latest record "Our Summer", which is due for release August. Re-uniting in Hawaii, the band wrote most of the music, testing material amongst the local audiences and later moving to Florida to record the material. Currently deployed while readying the band for an Eastern U.S tour in August, FallsStart has really just begun.
The Honolulu-based rock/punk trio FallsStart have announced they will be releasing their second CD on August 10, 2012, a six-track EP appropriately titled "Our Summer". Taking inspiration from both modern punk, alternative and classic rock, the release contains a fusion of genres, even featuring violin on a few tracks.
Following the success of their debut CD "Casus Incipient", FallsStart are planning a tour across the Eastern States to celebrate the release. Be sure to check out "Our Summer" which drops on August 10, 2012!Continued on the next page
