If you’re hungry enough, you can always start over.
On their sixth full-length and first release for Rise Records, hard feelings, blessthefall filter urgent and uncontainable energy through nearly 15 years of hard-earned experience and wisdom, igniting their next chapter. Preserving a signature punch while pushing the sonic palette, the Arizona quintet–Beau Bokan [vocals], Eric Lambert [guitar], Jared Warth [bass], Elliott Gruenberg [guitar], and Matt Traynor [drums]—emerge with ten equally heavy and hypnotic anthems awash in pummeling guitars, glitchy synthesizers, and rafter-reaching vocals.
“I felt like we were writing our first record and we had something to prove,” admits Bokan. “We scrutinized everything. A lot of the inspiration came from a dark place. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we didn’t know where we were going. Like a light at the end of the tunnel, Rise Records entered the picture. That was our cue this is a restart. You can’t do the same thing over and over. We decided to make this a banger. We wanted to show progress and change, because we owe it to ourselves and our fans. This is a fresh start.”
