““Shallow Believer” embodies a call to conscious thought and movement, questioning the established order while diligently seeking truth.”  -Vocalist Chris Ratzlaff

Fallstar, an unrestrained group of artists and musicians who draw just as much inspiration from their local punk and hardcore scene as they do from their hometown in general. “Our city is known for its global perspective, sustainable living, care for the homeless, and having ideas that challenge long-standing traditions and beliefs.” Says the band. “So we’ve developed this way of thinking that is energized by our doubts and ideas. We’re a west coast band, we’re relaxed and not afraid of new things. We feel that Facedown Records understands this sentiment more than anyone else.”

Fallstar will make their Facedown Records premiere at the Facedown Festival (April 12-13) inChino,CA.

About Fallstar: FromPortland,ORcome Fallstar, an unrestrained group of artists and musicians who draw just as much inspiration from their local punk and hardcore scene as they do from their hometown in general. “Our city is known for its global perspective, sustainable living, care for the homeless, and having ideas that challenge long-standing traditions and beliefs.

Fallstar love the mercurial atmosphere of a live show, and so write true to their genre with sing-alongs and crowd participation. The influences of hardcore and metal are there, but they aren’t restrictive. The band spends countless hours layering and composing their songs to achieve the balance they desire. “Our music isn’t incredibly technical, so there’s lots of room for swinging guitars, jumping off things, chipped teeth and stitches.”

Fallstar released a full length with Come&Live! in 2010, and we’re proud to announce their debut Facedown release Backdraft, due out April 16, recorded by engineer Kris Crummett (Alesana, Dance Gavin Dance, Sleeping with Sirens) at Interlace Audio and featuring Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire.
