Behind The Fallen with The Word Alive Telle Smith

Behind The Fallen Sign with EMP Label Group

Orange County hard rockers Behind The Fallen have signed a deal with EMP Label Group, who will release their debut LP As The Sky Falls Through on Oct. 28. The full-length offering will feature promo single “Satellite,” the band's 2013 single “You’re Just a Friend” and “Reflections,” a collaboration featuring The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith.

Behind The Fallen album As The Sky Falls ThroughOn the collaboration with Smith, singer Johnny Presley says, “We connected with Telle through our management, and the opportunity came up to do a song together and obviously we jumped at it. We’re all huge fans, and Telle’s one of the most amazing frontmen in the business. We jumped into the studio with him for a day, there was great chemistry, and we cranked out 'Reflections,' which turned out absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to get it out to the fans and look forward to, hopefully, performing the track with Telle live someday."

Emerging onto the scene in 2011, Behind The Fallen released their debut six-song EP Pages of the Past, produced by Erik Ron, before embarking on several tours supporting their release with Assuming We Survive, Trapt and their own headline tour.

In 2013, the band followed up with their single and video for “You’re Just A Friend,” with a renewed pop-punk infused direction that generated attention for the band. BTF has since developed their sound, deftly maneuvering between hard rock, metal and pop-punk, behind the fierce melodic growl of vocalist Presley. After a year-plus hiatus, the band emerged with a retooled lineup and team, and were brought to the attention of EMP head of A&R Thom Hazaert by EMP Publicist Shauna O’ Donnell.
