July 30th 2013 marks the date of All Else Fails’ heaviest and most diverse release,‘Fucktropolis’ will be unleashed via Suicidal Bride Records. Heavy with a dark beauty, this highly anticipated 5 track EP, the band’s 4th release will solidly place All Else Fails amongst the best in their genre.
Vocalist / guitarist Barrett Klesko comments:
“I’m proud to say that we have never made the same album twice, and this is no exception, easily our heaviest effort to date. This album is not only much heavier, but also much more sonically diverse. It’s extremely angry, but it has this grave, dark, beauty to it as well.”
Fucktropolis – Track Listing:
2. Better Left Undead
3. La Demencia Violenta
4. Obedience At The Altar of Sacrifice
5. A Most Unwanted Reprieve
Coming out of Edmonton Alberta Canada, All Else Fails is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band 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.
A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.
The band’s last release received world wide praise from industry publications around the world. With the release of the band’s most recent music video “This Burden of Life” in the fall of 2012, and its addition to rotation on Canada’s Much Music, All Else Fails’ fan base expanded dramatically.
