About Fallen To Rise
Fallen To Rise hails from Bossier/ Shreveport, Louisiana located in the north-west corner of the boot. We've been together since March 2006 and feel that we are heading in the right direction in the way we write, play, and develop as a band. With the addition of a new guitar player, Michael Chavez, our ability's as musicians and live performers feel refreshed and limitless, ready to take on a new era of Fallen To Rise. Our music is upbeat with a mix of heavy breakdowns and technical instrumentations. All shall parrish meets In Flames/ Killswitch type of music we would like to think. We have been fortunate to have shared the stage with national acts such as RECON, American Me, Dr. Acula, Seneca, Life Ruiner, Beneath the Sky, to name a few metal bands. Our song Watching Angels Burn was chosen for the compilation series number 5 of Downtown Metal produced and destributed by Quick Star Productions LLC. and sold on the internet through well known distributers I tunes, Amazon, and Walmart. The compilation is also sold throughout the United States by the 18 bands that also participated. We look forward to meeting everyone and making new friends in our future travels and hope the best for everyone in success and life. Keep it real, real real

THE INCREASINGLY LENGTHY LEGEND OF SOTD:
Scared of the Dark was formed by guitarists, Logan Cammack and Jake Roberson, in March 2009. Soon after, the two were joined by Drummer, Steven Womack and Vocalist, Josh Lofton. The three of them immediately started writing and were soon joined by bassist Chris Denmen. On the weekend of Easter 2009 the band recorded their first EP with Tonal Records in Dallas, Texas.

In the late summer of 2009, Chris Denmen and Scared of the Dark parted ways and Josh Turner, long time friend of the band, took over the low end of the string section. They proceeded to play shows steadily during the following months until they once again came upon rocky times. Early 2010 brought new challenges. Logan Cammack, a founding member, decided to leave SotD in order to pursue other endeavors. His departure was unsettling for the remaining members but things started to look up after meeting guitarist, Austin Savage. He was quickly included in the recovering lineup. Austin began learning the setlist, and soon played his first show with the boys in Shreveport, LA.

It was only a matter of weeks before the times again spelled trouble for Scared of the Dark. Vocalist, Josh Lofton, one of the three remaining original members took his leave as well. The band had almost been pushed to the breaking point and were discussing the end of SotD. They ultimately decided to pursue their music for a while longer and hope for the best. They made their search for a new frontman public and soon were receiving requests for auditions. After only a few tryouts during February 2010, the boys met Jared Martin. After his initial audition, Jared was asked to return to future band practices and was shortly offered a full time place in SotD.

Things have been going pretty smooth for the newly re-completed lineup with the exception of a few money issues. SotD recorded two lo-fi demo tracks at home during March 2010 to showcase their new sound and members. They were both well received by fans and have earned the boys plenty of local and distant praise. The band has recently become sponsored by several music companies as well as a clothing brand and are now preparing to record their first album. They are also working to book a Summer tour which is still proving difficult at the moment.

There are still several hurdles that the boys must clear as quickly as possible before things can be considered "smooth sailing". Most of the band's equipment that was lost during their many lineup changes and through normal wear-and-tear is still slowly being replaced. Money for the album recordings, new merchandise, a trailer, Summer tour, and a number of other things is also posing a problem for SotD, but they've gotten through worse!
The saga continues...
