All Else Fails

Posted by Christopher Rudder

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 high-energy live show sets them apart from their peers, often drawing comparisons to The Holly Springs Disaster and Killswitch Engage.

CR: I wanna thank you for taking time out of your schedule to talk with me and Rogue Magazine’s Hearing Aid . How Are You? 

All Else Fails: Fantastic! It has been an amazing couple of months for us! Exciting times!

CR:...iiight lets do this!!! Aside from music and what is written in your bio, tell us something about you that your fans don’t know.

All Else Fails: We are actually a David Bowie cover band, though no one has ever noticed.

CR: As an artist, the musical journey is a long (trust me I know) and cannot be done by oneself. Who are some of the people in your life who have supported you and continue to support you through you musical career.

All Else Fails: Well obviously our families have been a great help, because let’s face it, when we are stranded on the road, starving and out of cash, who else are you going to call? Besides that, our professional support team (our manager Leanne and publicist Asher) work WAY too hard for how much we pay them! hahaha! 

CR: So...At what point in your life did you know you wanted to pursue a musical career and realize that you had what it takes to succeed in the messed up industry.

All Else Fails: I have pretty much always known that, I personally have been playing since I was about ten, though it wasn't until my early twenties that I began to realize how much of my life I was going to have to put into it. In the end thoug, you get out what you put in, and I'm perfectly happy sacrificing a "normal" life in pursuit of fame forune and all that can entail within the bounds of the music industry.
