A very quick update to let you know that the track 'Afterthought' from our forthcoming album 'The Menagerie Inside' is being previewed over at Rocking.gr - click here to have a listen: http://www.rocking.gr/news/Apokleistiko-Akouste-akoma-ena-kommati-apo-ton-neo-disko-twn-Midas-Fall/25194/
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).
2015 will see Midas Fall release their third album on Monotreme Records accompanied by a full European tour.
This November we'll be embarking on our third European tour, performing everywhere from Belgium to Bulgaria. We're also lucky enough to have Canadian outfit Raised by Swans joining us for a number of shows, check out the dates below for more info. As touring is massively expensive we've decided to set up a fundraiser through Indiegogo to help cover fuel costs. If you'd like to get your hands on some Midas Fall rarities, such as handmade CDs of unreleased tracks, vinyl test pressings and signed posters please check out our campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/midas-fall-european-tour-2015#/ We really can't wait to get touring again and look forward to seeing as many of you out there as possible! 24/10 - Blackpool, UK - The Blue Room 30/10 – Preston, UK - The Ferret 31/10 – London, UK - The Sebright Arms 01/11 - Siegen, DE - Vortex Club 03/11 - Ghent, BE - De Kleine Kunst 04/11 - Warsaw, PL 05/11 - Bielsko-Biala, PL - RudeBoy Club 06/11 - Presov, SK - Wave 07/11 - Budapest, HU - Szimpala 11/11 - Thessaloniki, GR 12/11 - Volos, GR 13/11 - Athens, GR 14/11 - Patra, GR 15/11 - Ioannina, GR 16/11 - Serres, GR 17/11 - Plovdiv, BG - Bee Bop Cafe* 19/11 - Bucharest, RO - Fabrica Club* 20/11 - Iasi, RO - Underground Club* 21/11 - Cluj Napoja, RO- Shelter* 23/11 - Zupanja, CR - Cafe Bar Okac* 26/11 – Berlin, DE - K17* 27/11 - Offenbach, DE - Hafen 2* 28/11 – Mons, BE - L'Alhambra * with Raised By Swans (solo)

One week passes to Indie Week are available through the link below which gives you free entry to our show and covers all gigs held over the week May 27-31 - fabulous.
We'll be unveiling a few new tracks from our forthcoming album 'the Menagerie Inside' - set for release later this year on Monotreme Records - as well as a few oldies. It'll be our last show in Manchester for a while, but we will be back in the North West on Saturday 6th June at the Ferret in Preston - entry to this show is free (hurrah!) and support comes from the wonderful Monsters as Humans and Ark - it's also Pedro's birthday, so feel free to bring gifts - cigarettes, cakes, biscuits and boobs are particularly welcome.
We're delighted to let you all know that our next UK show will be at the Blue Room in Blackpool on April 25th with fellow Monotremers Stearica. Our other scheduled UK dates is at the Ferret in Preston on Saturday June 6th and will be organised by the lovely folks at Picturesound. There are currently a couple of other UK shows in the pipeline, which will be announced over the coming weeks.
Work on our third album is edging ever closer to completion, in fact the whole shebang will be done and dusted by mid-April - hurrah! We've also got a very special mastering engineer on board...track previews and full tour details will be posted here and on our social media channels over the coming months. To keep up with us the way all the modern kids do please check out our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
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.
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!
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'.
Look out on our Facebook and Twitter sites for tour announcements in the coming weeks!
The follow-up release to our second album 'Wilderness' is finally out on Monotreme Records - hurrah! You can download it from the vast majority of digital reteailers, including iTunes, Amazon and the Android Play Store.
The EP is also available as a limited edition CD only from the Monotreme Records webstore or directly from the band at one of our upcoming European shows.
At our shows we will also have a limited run of 'Fluorescent Lights' themed t-shirts as well as CD copies of our debut album 'Eleven. Return and Revert' and sophomore LP 'Wilderness' as well as stickers and badges, so you decorate yourself like a Midas Fall Christmas tree, lovely.
