The story so far…
The band burst onto the Washington D.C. metro scene in early 2012, with their debut EP Fight From Within. Fast-forward to the summer of 2015, and Everything Falls released their sophomore EP Through The Storm. That release was followed up with more regional touring around Northern New Jersey, New York City, and Northern Virginia. Now, here in early spring of 2019, frontman Aaron Linkous is poised to release the third EP titled Wolves At The Door. He’ll be releasing this EP from his new location in Nashville, Tennessee. Most might argue that this is truly where the journey began with Aaron being a graduate of the Recording Industry program at MTSU. “I’m happy and excited to be back in my old stomping grounds,” stated Linkous. The album is a collection of songs that Linkous wrote over the last decade or so and he states that, “This is easily the best music I’ve created to date, in my opinion! I might be just a little bit biased, but I’m very, very proud of this work and I truly believe our fans will thoroughly enjoy it! Forsaken, in particular, was written here in TN. I even tracked on that song at MTSU. Some friends of mine needed a band to record for their project and I was more than happy to oblige and get some free recording time.” Aaron laughingly stated, “It’s pretty awesome to see everything come full circle and to be back here releasing this song, and several others, for real this time.”
Everything Falls has been a labor of love for Linkous, and he’s certainly worked hard at his craft over the last nine years. The band’s debut release, Fight From Within was released in November of 2011 and included their first mainstream hit, “Sorry To Say.” The video for “Sorry To Say” was featured on national media outlets such as Blank TV, Pure Grain Audio, The Cool TV, and Renegade Radio. In addition, Hard Rock Café, Planet Hollywood, Gold’s Gym and Royal Carribean Cruise Line chose to promote the single. The song was also used by nationally televised and British-based professional wrestling program, UK Wrestling Experience. Other notable hits off of the album were the singles “Come On” and “Everything That You Wanted.” In late 2012, Everything Falls continued their promotional tour for the EP, and ultimately landed an interview with The Real Radio Show in Long Island, NY–Interesting Fact: While the interview was going on Hurricane Sandy was raging outside, ultimately, stranding Aaron and family in Long Island for several days. As the band gained momentum, new opportunities presented themselves, and Linkous eventually made the difficult decision to relocate the band to the New York City metro area.
In 2013, Linkous began rebuilding. After multiple changes in the lineup, Everything Falls was finally ready to head into the world-renowned Barber Shop Studios with Producer Brody Greif in 2015. Three of the notable singles from the Through The Storm album were “Let It Go (Enemy),” “Daylight Takes The Dawn,” and “This Time.” Touring continued, landing opening spots for bands such as Shaman’s Harvest, Hinder, Saving Abel, and Sponge. Everything Falls also competed in the 97.9X regional finals for NeXt To Rock. They were one of ten bands chosen to compete for a chance to go to the finals in Los Angeles. They were also chosen to perform on the Real Radio Show for a second time, On The Red Carpet with Melissa D. Gordon, Ava Live, Rogue Intel, Neuregel Radio, and Asbury Park’s “Light Of Day Winterfest 2018.” Regarding the difficulties that he encountered throughout the relocation process, Linkous stated, “The transition from D.C. to New Jersey was challenging, but I knew that it was necessary if Everything Falls was going to rise to the top. I’ve learned to trust my instincts and never let anyone deter me from my goals. I believe in this band, and I believe in our music.”
“Everything Falls has accomplished a lot up to this point, but we still have so much room for growth,” said Linkous. “We’re hungry to break into the regional scene and to make our live show something that fans are lining up to see. I believe that our new EP will definitely catch the ear of a lot of potential fans. I’m extremely proud of Wolves At The Door! Now it’s time to see what the world thinks about it,” said Linkous.
