All Else Fails


All Else Fails

ALL ELSE FAILS shared their new music video a ‘Thrice Broken’ in support of their latest album ‘The False Sanctuary’released this past December.

Keeping with their tradition of crushingly heavy and progressive metal ‘The False Sanctuary’ features 2 new songs for this album and includes 5 B-sides from their 2017 full length ‘The Forever Lie’, which were never released digitally.
Barrett Klesko (vocals, guitar) explains the album:

“In a lot of ways this album is at a state of the union address. It’s been almost 2 years since the release of The Forever Lie, and already the themes of financial corruption, abuse of religious power, and political scandal seem tame. I wrote this one half with a sarcastic smirk, half with a crippling sense that we are well past the point of return.” says Barrett Klesko (vocals, guitar).  

Coming out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, All Else Fails (AEF) is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of modern metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like Killswitch Engage, In Flames, and Of Mice and Men, the band infuses their metalcore sound with a variety of elements including experimental riffs, classical melodies, sporadic synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique vocal blend ranging from heavy gutturals to spine tingling cleans.

Since first getting together in 2006 they have focused on producing a high energy live show that not only sets them apart from their peers, but has garnered them appearances on numerous festivals over the years, including the Unmaad and Alcheringa Fests In India, Vans Warped Tour, Boonstock along with opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, Trivium and Arise & Ruin. 

Over their highly acclaimed career they have released 3 EPs, 3 full lengths, and a live DVD. AEF is only gaining momentum and they are ecstatic to be adding to this impressive discography in 2018 with the full length ‘The False Sanctuary’ on December 13th.
