Interviews: One Fall

On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Melodic Punk/Hardcore band One Fall from the USA. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or come out just like that?

It's a professional wrestling reference! We are big wrestling fans and wanted to have a reference to that in the name. When folks recognize the name, sometimes their eyes light up, and it's awesome.

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

Melodic punk/hardcore is such a high-energy genre -- fast skate beats, technical riffs, etc. But there's also that heart and passion in the vocals, and big singalong anthemic gang vocals. The bands in this genre are the ones that have influenced us the most.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes, mostly! Phill, Caleb, and Helen actually all worked together previously at Harmonix, the video game developer. Because we got to talk about and work on music as part of our jobs, we got to know a lot about each others' musical inclinations. We didn't know Darren previously, but he's such a perfect fit -- we get along crazy well, and he tolerates us really well.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Darren (bass): Sick of It All

Phill (guitar): Converge

Caleb (drums): Bouncing Souls

Helen (vox/guitar): A Wilhem Scream

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

There's a lot in our songs about the state of our society right now, particularly concerning misogyny and capitalism. But there's also a lot about relationships and the general struggles of being human.

6. Where was your last gig?

We just played O'Briens in Allston, MA, but before that was The Fest in Gainesville, FL.

7. Where would you like to act?

We're hoping to play in the UK/Europe next year, that would be awesome. Especially given that Phill is originally from Nottingham, England. We want to go see a Notts County football match.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

So many bands! Frank Turner, La Armada, Blood Command... plus there are bands we've played with already that we are dying to play with again, like the Iron Roses and Belvedere.

9. Whom not?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of bands out there with members that are violent or dangerous -- we'll skip them.

10. Have any of you ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

I get a crazy rush of adrenaline that lasts all day when I'm going to play a show -- it isn't exactly stage fright, but it might as well be. I can't eat on show days, and I can't really focus on anything. I find that some of the best live performers have terrible stage fright, they've just learned how to harness that energy. Lean into it if you can, and use all that intensity on stage.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

We get a ton of inspiration from the great local bands in our area. We are so lucky to get to see bands like SkyTigers, The Promised End, Oh the Humanity!, Cape Crush, and Brix'n Mortar regularly. I think we all drive each other to make better and better music.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

I once got asked by a reporter if they could lick my shoe.

13. What do you think of your fans?

We are so psyched when folks like our music and get what we're doing. We love meeting folks and shows and learning about what music they're into.

14. What do you think of our site?

I definitely, appreciate anybody who is covering up-and-coming bands these days -- thanks for doing what you're doing!

15. Something to add?

Pro wrestling rules. Nachos are good.
