The NAMM Show 2018 Interviews: Behind The Fallen

Behind The Fallen has been in a band in transition with a lot happening between our previous interview at NAMM 2017 and our recent chat which took place in The NAMM Media Center at the Anaheim Convention Center last month  After losing their former lead vocalist, Behind The Fallen would reflect upon their career and decided that giving up was not an option.  Taking a good amount of time and care in securing a rock solid front man, a chance encounter with Nathan Spades at Chain Reaction would turn into the next vibrant chapter for this hard working band on the rise.  With a new single Revenant on ITunes and an high profile show with Nathan Spades taking place at Malone Concert Venue on March 9th, Behind The Fallen is ready to take over the music world in a vast and epic way!  Read on as Highwire Daze Online interviews the members of Behind The Fallen about their discovery of Nathan Spades, the meaning behind the brand new song Revenant, musical instruments of choice, and other topics of intrigue…

Introduce yourself and tell me what you do in Behind The Fallen.
David Bruno: I’m David – I play the guitar.

Dylan Roy: I’m Dylan – I’m the drummer.

Nathan Spades: I’m Nate – I’m vocals.

Chris Khaos: I’m Chris – I play guitar.

Eric Sinful: I’m Eric and I still try to play bass.

Since we are NAMM, here is the question of the hour. What are your instruments of choice and why?
David: My main guitar was initially a Schecter C1 because we had a good relationship with Schecter. Actually, we’ve been in the market. We have been talking to a company called Legator Guitars. We’re going to be working with them. We’re gonna set up a good relationship and we should get some new access pretty soon, so I’m stoked about that.

Dylan: I gotta give a shout out to DW Drums and DW hardware, Sabian Cymbals, Evans and Promark Stix by D’Addario. And Ultimate Ears all the way for my ear monitors.

Nathan: I prefer a Sennheiser Mic – the 935. It gives me a better high end to my vocals which is where my range usually lies. Ultimate Ears has been pretty good – helping me not fight the PA so much so I could deliver a full sound the whole set. So I’m looking forward to using them a lot too.

Chris: So like my compadre over here said – we had been playing Schecters for a while. We’re talking with Legator right now, and hopeful I get to play a few of their guitars – they’re phenomenal. Marshall Amps, Shure wireless, D’Addarrio strings and Ernie Ball strings for this guy.

Eric: Hands down Ernie Ball. Best basses out there – if you’re not playing them, you should be. And for my in ears, I’m using Ultimate Ears UE13’s – for the bass it’s got two end drivers and it’s amazing for all you bass players out there – you guys should all check them out. My Seinnheiser wireless and Orange and Ampeg are so sexy!

Behind The Fallen is playing Malones Concert Hall on March 9th!

Behind The Fallen now has a new vocalist. Nathan, how did you become involved with the band?
Nathan: I was playing a show with my other band on Father’s Day at Chain Reaction. And Mr. Eric Sinful was watching me perform the entire time. He messaged me about a day later and said, “Hey, I don’t know if you are looking to do anything else, but we’re looking for a singer.” And I was like “Yeah, let’s do a tryout.” I was really interested and their music was great! It was big opportunity for me. And that’s why I kind of feel like I’m the baby, because these are all like rock stars and I’m not really on that level. That’s how it all came together.

Chris: We welcomed this guy with open arms. Love him.

Eric: This is the boring versi
