‘Fallstar’ & ‘Disciple’ To Play ‘Christmas Rock Night’ 2013


FallstarFor the first time, Fallstar all the way from Portland/Oregon [USA] will come over to Europe to play at the annual Christmas Rock Night. This year the two day winter-festival will be held December 6 & 7, as usual in “Haus Ennepetal”, Ennepetal, Germany.

Fallstar, an unrestrained group of artists and musicians who draw just as much inspiration from their local punk and hardcore scene as they do from their hometown in general. “Our city is known for its global perspective, sustainable living, care for the homeless, and having ideas that challenge long-standing traditions and beliefs. So we’ve developed this way of thinking that is energized by our doubts and ideas. We’re a west coast band, we’re relaxed and not afraid of new things.”

Fallstar love the mercurial atmosphere of a live show, and so write true to their genre with sing-alongs and crowd participation. The influences of hardcore and metal are there, but they aren’t restrictive. The band spends countless hours layering and composing their songs to achieve the balance they desire. “Our music isn’t incredibly technical, so there’s lots of room for swinging guitars, jumping off things, chipped teeth and stitches.”

The band made its Facedown Records debut last month [April 16] with their album “Backdraft”. Check out the brand new video for “Drags, Drugs, And Bones” below. 

Another band for CRN 2013 is: Knoxville [USA] based rock-metal band Disciple. These men are no stranger on this German festival. Their latest album “O God Save Us All” is the ninth critically acclaimed album which was released Nov 13, 2012 via Fair Trade Services. Check our review here.

Christmas Rock Night has been very well known for many years in Europe, due to the unprecedented strong rock/metal-programming. A rising number of Dutchmen find their way to the festival. Ennepetal is located in the Ruhrgebied, two hours from Utrecht and about one hour of the border and so it is good to reach with the car.
