Socially conscious, lyrically poetic, rife with apocalyptic symbolism; All Else Fails is poised to take our world by storm. Playing an aggressively dark blend of Punk, Metal, and Rock, this well established Edmonton based band breaks the traditional ideals of their genre by producing music infused with experimental elements, incorporating Classical music, Electronica influenced synth lines, and spoken word sampling. This is metal for a new audience, one that’s ready for what’s beyond the ordinary.
Their inspired and high energy live show sets them apart from their peers, often drawing comparisons to The Holly Springs Disaster and Killswitch Engage. The band has been nominated for both “Artist to Watch” and “Metal Album of the Year” by the Edmonton Music Awards, and have earned spots on music festivals, notable show opportunities and world wide praise for their latest release.
The band’s unique sound has won them acclamation and fans from across Canada and around the globe. Using intricate guitar riffs and meaningful lyrics delivered with powerful vocals, they draw their listeners in, and then blast them with full frontal force!
The band has played with major touring acts such as Cancer Bats, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, City of Fire, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin, as well as earning a spot playing the Ernie Ball stage on the 2009 Vans Warped Tour that featured Bad Religion, Alexisonfire, NOFX, Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, and more.
On the local circuit, All Else Fails frequently shares the stage with some of Canada’s top touring indie acts such as Ninjaspy, Endast, Quartered, Stella, Dead Jesus, Fattooth, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Submerge the Sky, Without Mercy, and more.
With the very successful release of 2011 album “The Oracle: What Was, Is and Could Have Been” winning accolades around the world, and 4 Canadian tours on their resume, All Else Fails sets their sights beyond borders.
