“Midwestern, Alt. Rock act, Boys of Fall, sparks flames following the release of their debut single, “My Promise to Maryland,” (Directed by Brandan Lee Keller). For fans of A Day to Remember, Of Mice & Men and Mayday Parade, Boys of Fall’s upcoming release, No Place Like Home (EP), bridges avenues between Alternative Pop, Punk and Post-Hardcore. Composed of motifs vis-à-vis antiquated, hopeless romanticism and martyrdom, Boys of Fall’s euphonic pop harmonies interlock amid tightly structured, alternative instrumentations. The band is currently finishing their debut record release with producer, Johnny Franck (ex-Attack Attack) – tentatively expected April/May 2015. “This’ll be [Boys of Fall’s] second release after two years of touring on the demo EP, The Call Out. We’ve been writing and recording in the basement of a Detroit funeral home for the past year,” says Boys of Fall’s vocalist, Michael Martenson.”
What We Think:
Boys of Fall adhere to the ‘If it ain’t broke, why fix it?’ formula when it comes to their post-hardcore meets pop-punk style, but they do so admirably and with plenty of hooks in tow. Johnny Franck of Attack Attack! clean vocal game also did a fine job handling production duties with the band on “My Promise To Maryland.”
Why You Should Listen:
Because you need another catchy song to get yelled at for singing along to during study hall or in the long, silent elevator ride with your new boss.
