FALLING RED are confirmed as Special Guests on the nine date STEEL PANTHER UK tour this November. Always showing promise of being a break through band, clinching the support slot on Steel Panther’s biggest ever Headline UK tour will galvanize Falling Red’s reputation as one of the leading live bands to surface from the UK Rock scene.
FALLING RED are a four piece fist-pumping, high octane Rock band from North England whose live performances have earned them a reputation as ‘One of the best the UK has to offer’ – Kerrang! Magazine. With passion and enthusiasm Falling Red have developed their own recognizable sound while writing dynamic anthems for a new generation. The band brings a bolstered attitude to today’s Rock scene
Falling Red, originally formed in the Cumbrian town of Carlisle in 2006, were born from a passion for Stadium Rock bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Metallica & Iron Maiden. Quick to develop their own style they began writing their own material and recorded the self-produced Demo CD ‘If You Ain’t Down With The Rock…’ in 2007 to sell at gigs. Shortly after signing a Management deal with Raz White Entertainment (April 2009) they sold out of the 1000 pressed copies.
The band branched out & began gigging the length a breadth of the UK and signed a Licensing Deal with Rocksector Records in October 2009. Their first official release was the debut album Shake The Faith in March 2010 which received critical acclaim throughout the Rock Press. Being hailed as ‘heirs apparent to the Mötley Crüe Kings Of Sleaze throne’ – Midlands Rocks an unexpected fan of the band was Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) who particularly liked the track ‘Out Of Control’, giving it ample airtime on his BBC Radio 6 Rock Show. Other DJs quick to hail the band as a breath of fresh air & a great emerging talent was Johnny Doom (Kerrang! Radio), Malcolm Dome (Total Rock Radio) & DJ Beerman (Top Rock Radio/Switch).
The band hit the road to promote the album, playing hundreds of their own shows alongside tours with Sebastian Bach, Black Spiders, Magnum, GUN, Dave Evans (original AC/DC vocalist), Dirty Penny, Tigertailz & many others. Branching into Europe soon followed with memorable headline dates in Norway & Belgium.
Falling Red released a four track ep Hasta La Victoria Siempre! on April 2011/Rocksector Records.
Between playing Hard Rock Hell V (Dec 2011) & Hammerfest 4 (March 2012) the band made a substantial line-up change bringing in a new bassist & rhythm guitarist from the North East . Headline shows at London Underworld, Manchester Academy 3 & Legends, Newcastle cemented the new formation and increased the bands fan base further.
FALLING RED (Feb 2012) L-R; Jayde Starr (Rhythm Guitar), Rozey (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Dann Marx (Bass), Dave Sanders (Drums).

Perhaps the most tongue in cheek band of all time, Los Angeles glam metal rockers Steel Panther have carved out a niche as both a parody of and homage to the heyday of ‘80’s hairspray rock. With big hair and even bigger riffs Steel Panther rock in a way most bands wouldn’t dare to. Front man Michael Starr’s onstage banter is worth the price of admission alone as he and the band regale the audience with staged fights and humorous musing on the classic excesses of rock bands. Don’t miss these Steel Panther shows; there are few bands more entertaining.
