We Are The Fallen, one of rock’s most buzzed about new groups, have announced that their worldwide live debut will take place at Kings College in London on Tuesday 23rd March 2010. Tickets go on sale this Friday 5th February via www.livenation.co.uk and will cost Â£12.50 each. The iconic fivesome is comprised of the original members of multiplatinum trailblazing band Evanescence, guitarists Ben Moody and John LeCompt along with drummer Rocky Gray, joined by charismatic American Idol finalist Carly Smithson on vocals. Acclaimed bassist Marty Oâ€™Brien (Disturbed and Static-X, among others) rounds out We Are The Fallen’s unique sound.
The group will then return to the U.S. to give fans a live taste of the reportoire fueling their upcoming debut album, due out later in the year – hitting the road in support of Finnish rock stalwarts H.I.M. The extensive, 28 city tour launches in Philadelphia, PA, on March 26th. The band’s first single “Bury Me Alive” is available digitally today in North America.
Guitarist Ben Moody has been publicly crediting the group’s unique chemistry as the driving force behind We Are The Fallen, describing Carly Smithson’s role as a ‘true partner,’ and a key component to We Are The Fallen’s overall sound. Moody left the platinum-plus breakthrough rock act Evanesence in 2003, and has since co-written major hits for Chris Daughtry and Kelly Clarkson among others. Evanescenceâ€™s groundbreaking 2003 album, Fallen was a #1 hit in the UK and spent an incredible 33 weeks in the Top 20 selling over 3 million albums and over 15 million copies worldwide.
For Smithson, We Are The Fallen completes her dream – after exiting American Idol – of becoming a creative force in a ‘vital’ band environment. Carly Smithson was a sixth place finisher during Season 7 of the landmark television series American Idol, duly recognized for having one of the hit shows most loyal fan bases. The fiery singerâ€™s â€˜eliminationâ€™ sent shockwaves through the â€˜Idolâ€™ blogger nation, with her acclaimed performances on the 2008 American Idol Tour cementing her current reputation as one of rock’s most formidable female voices.
