In a statement posted on their facebook page, All Else Fails have announced the return of drummer Ryan Biggs who was the band during 2010 along with being a touring member through 2011 and 2012.
The band was scheduled to perform on Feb 1st at Studio Music Foundation in Edmonton w/ Enemyus, Dieuponaday but due to scheduling conflict are now unable to take the stage, but will be performing in Drumheller, AB on March 1st at the Whiskey Lounge & Night Club w/ Maimed Wolf plus on April 26th at The Vat in Red Deer, AB with Ninjaspy .
AEF released their latest EP ‘Fucktropolis’ on Suicidal Bride Records this past summer, and recently released their latest music video ‘A Most Unwanted Reprieve’.
“This new video is different for us because it’s all live footage filmed during our set at Loud as Hell Metal Fest in Drumheller, AB last summer and obviously the fans played a big part in how it came out. We are also debuting our new VEVO channel with this one. We’d like to wish all our fans a Merry Fucking Christmas from All Else Fails!” comments All Else Fails vocalist / guitarist and video director Barrett Klesko.
‘Fucktropolis‘ is All Else Fails‘ fourth release since 2007 and is the follow up to their 2012 release ‘The Oracle, What Was, Is And Could Have Been’ that received world wide praise from industry publications around the world along with their music video ‘This Burden of Life‘ added to rotation on Canada’s largest music channel Much Music, expanding their Canadian fan base dramatically.
Making their mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre and drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God. All Else Fails infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.
Their high energy live show sets them apart from their peers and has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening support slots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.
