We Are The Fallen performed their hit single ‘Bury Me Alive’ acoustically for Billboard.com. The rock band featuring former ‘American Idol’ finalist Carly Smithson also sat down for an interview to discuss their debut album ‘Tear the World Down’, Carly’s reasons for not staying solo, comparisons with most of the members’ former band Evanescence, and more. Watch it via YouTube below.
Ben Moody tells the Houston Chronicle that despite the similarities, the band is not Evanescence 2.0. “We never intended to give that impression. But it’s the entire lineup, minus the singer. It’s obvious that there are going to be a fu**ing ton of comparisons,” he conceded. “We would be naive to think that we would escape that. I just came into this world with something to do. And this is it.”
John LeCompt and Carly Smithson from We Are The Fallen visited the Kerrang! office to talk about their upcoming debut album ‘Tear The World Down’, and their debut gig in London. John talked about never really being apart with his fellow ex-Evanescence bandmates, how Carly ended up meeting the guys, how crazy excited Ben Moody was when she first met him, Carly’s husband being into punk rock, promising a nice surprise cover of an Iron Maiden song for the show, and Carly apparently being the band’s “pot man”.
