Falling Red Part Ways With Bassist Dann Marx
February 12, 2014
With a successful crowd sourcing campain resulting in the release of their new album ‘Empire Of The Damned’, 2014 was shaping up to be a big year for Falling Red. However, the UK rockers have suffered a minor setback with the announcement that bassist Dann Marx is leaving the band and being replaced by Mikey Lawless.
“It has come with a heavy heart but Dann Marx has decided to step down from bass duties with Falling Red due to personal commitments away from the band,” said the members of Falling Red in a recent statement. “It is something we have known for a while now but have wanted to get a suitable replacement set up for future touring. This was not an easy decision for Dann but with the amount of touring we have coming up with the ‘Tour of the Damned’ he could not commit to Falling Red.
“From here on in Mikey Lawless will replace Dann on bass, so please all welcome Mikey into the band the way past members have always been welcomed. Some of you will have seen Mikey step in for Dann during our Europe dates in November last year and know he is more than up to the task. We hit the rehearsal studio on Sunday for the first rehearsal of 2014 with Mikey and we can’t wait to hit the road and see you all.”
As self-proclaimed forerunners of the “UK Rock Revolution”, Falling Red have taken their high octane brand of post-sleaze metal from the UK Club scene to the legendary Hammersmith Apollo — all in less than three years of releasing their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Shake The Faith’.
The band’s new album ‘Empire Of The Damned’ was put together with the help of a successful Pledge Music fundraising campaign. The CD was released to pledgers on September 30th, 2013, with a full worldwide release taking place in January 2014 — fans can pre-order the album by visiting fallingred.bigcartel.com.
