Described as "chiming vocal-led post-rock", Midas Fall have carved a unique sound, combining elements of electronica, post-rock and alt-goth to create "powerful yet fragile, devastatingly beautiful and beautifully devastating" music (Founder Magazine).

Midas Fall released their second album 'Wilderness' on Monotreme Records in April 2013 followed by their 'Fluorescent Lights' EP in November 2013'. 

2014 will see the band tour Europe and complete work on their third album, set for release in 2015.

Merry Chrimbo / New Song / 3rd Album Update 

It's been an absolute eon since our last blog post, since our last update we've done a mini Balkans tour, written and recorded our third album and are now in the process of planning our next European shindig. 

As a little thank you to everyone for their continued patience with our recent silence, we've recorded our very own Christmas song 'Carol of the Infected'. If you've been very naughty and are expecting a stocking full of coal, this yuletide treat should match the mood perfectly. Enjoy. 

 

Greek Tour / 3rd Album  

After a two year absence, we are over the moon to confirm we will be touring Greece in April 2014 with he first show taking place in the beautiful northern city of Thessaloniki on April 24th. Full event information can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/739213952777123

The full schedule of dates will be announced in the coming days here as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Following on from our 2013 releases 'Wilderness' and 'Fluorescent Lights' we are currently working on our third full-length album. New tracks will be unveiled at our upcoming Greek and Bulgarian shows, though for a sneak preview we suggest you keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages over the coming weeks...wink wink! 

2014 Shows / New TShirts / Album #3 

Howdy folks, it has been a while since our last post, but since our November tour we've been quietly beavering away on putting together our third album and booking our first shows of 2014. 

Our first show of the year will be at the Blue Room in sunny Blackpool, Pedro's home town. In April we are planning some very special shows in mainland Europe...watch this space (especially all you Greek peeps).

Finally, we've got some brand spanking new Tshirts available from our webstore, very kindly modelled by Le Serj of Romanian alt-rock outfit Pretty Visitors, who supported us in Iasi, Romania last November. Also available from our webstore is our latest EP release 'Fluorescent Lights' as well as our 2013 album 'Wilderness' and 2010 debut 'Eleven. Return and Revert'.
