The Fallen State – Announce UK Headline Tour

ANNOUNCE UK HEADLINE TOUR IN OCTOBER 2019

New Studio Album ‘A Deadset Endeavour’ Out Now

“Beefy, brooding shot of hard rock, with that Shinedown-meets-Alter Bridge” – (Classic Rock)

British rising stars The Fallen State are thrilled to announce their headline UK tour in October 2019.

The Fallen State is one of the most exciting British rock acts to emerge in recent years and this tour will celebrate the band’s new studio album “A Deadset Endeavour”, which was released earlier this year through Last Man Music.

“A Deadset Endeavour” is the perfect showcase for the UK five piece rock act – a band with a mutual love for powerful, anthemic and beautifully executed rock. The Fallen State’s soundscape blends grooving and ruthless rhythms courtesy of drummer Rich Walker and bassist Greg Butler with the exuberant and soulful voice of singer Ben Stenning, the artful emotive phrasing of lead six-stringer Jon Price and a Dan Oke inspired harmonic wall of warm, contemporary rock guitars. From the powerful opening salvo of “Statements” to the driving rhythms of “Open Wound” to the heavy brutal riffing of “Torn”, “A Deadset Endeavour” is a stunning statement of a band at the very top of their game.

The Fallen State are a stunning live act. The band supported Pop Evil across Germany, France, UK and Holland in February and March 2019, having previously toured with the likes of Black Stone Cherry, Tremonti, US Grammy winners Halestorm, 3 Doors Down, Puddle Of Mudd and fellow UK rockers Young Guns and Heavens Basement.

The UK forthcoming headline shows are as follows: 

Fri 18th October 2019 – Barnstaple, The Factory
Sat 19th October 2019 – London, 229 The Venue
Sun 20th October 2019 – Plymouth, Underground

Fri 25th October 2019 – Newcastle, Think Tank
Sun 27th October 2019 – Nottingham, Alberts
Mon 28th October 2019 – Bournemouth, The Anvil

Since forming in 2013, The Fallen State have developed a fearsome live reputation by selling out shows with their modern, incisive and inspiring performances allied to their prolific output of five skillfully crafted EPs (“I,II,III”, “Crown Your Shadows” and “The View from Ruin”). The Fallen State’s critically acclaimed single “Nova” (featuring Chris Robertson from Black Stone Cherry and released in Christmas 2017) was a huge hit. Jon Price and Dan Oke are endorsed by PRS guitars. The “Nova” single has had over 3 million views across socials.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
