MetalInsider Premiere ALL ELSE FAILS’ New Music Video ‘Thrice Broken’
New Album ‘The False Sanctuary’ Available As Pay What You Want
Edmonton’s ALL ELSE FAILS have just announced a new video for the single ‘Thrice Broken’ of their 2018 release “The False Sanctuary”.
The video was recorded in 2018, internationally with vocalist/guitarist Barrett Klesko in Joshua Tree, USA and guitarist Mike Sands in Örebro, Sweden. Klesko has the following to say about the single, which is slower than what is typically expected from AEF:
“It’s analogous to where the band was in regards to our lineup over the past couple of years, all of us growing further apart due to new interests, but still having passion for the project. This is the last piece of music that Mike and I collaborated on, and I’m super proud of it. It’s totally a different approach for us (a ballad style remake of a previous song), and an awesome way to close off this chapter of AEF as we dive into the new one.”
ALL ELSE FAILS is suitable for all modern metal fans, especially those with an interest in Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Alexisonfire, and Architects.

Keeping with their tradition of crushingly heavy and progressive metal, ALL ELSE FAILS‘ latest album “The False Sanctuary” features 2 new songs along with 5 B-sides that were never released digitally from their critically-acclaimed 2016 full length ‘The Forever Lie’.
Vocalist/guitarist Barrett Klesko adds about their latest release “A False Sanctuary”:
“In a lot of ways this album is at a state of the union address. It’s been 2 years since the release of The Forever Lie, and already the themes of financial corruption, abuse of religious power, and political scandal seem tame. I wrote this one half with a sarcastic smirk, half with a crippling sense that we are well past the point of return.”
‘The False Sanctuary’ is available on Bandcamp (pay what you want for a limited time), along with stream and download on Spotify, iTunes, and all major online retailers.

Coming out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, All Else Fails (AEF) is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of modern metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like Killswitch Engage, In Flames, and Of Mice and Men, the band infuses their metalcore sound with a variety of elements including experimental riffs, classical melodies, sporadic synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique vocal blend ranging from heavy gutturals to spine-tingling cleans.
Since first getting together in 2006 they have focused on producing a high energy live show that not only sets them apart from their peers, but has garnered them appearances on numerous festivals over the years, including the Unmaad and Alcheringa Fests In India, Vans Warped Tour, Boonstock along with opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, Trivium and Arise & Ruin.
Over their highly acclaimed career, they have released 3 EPs, 3 full-lengths, and a live DVD. AEF is only gaining momentum and they are ecstatic to be adding to this impressive discography in 2019 with the full length ‘The False Sanctuary’.
