For Immediate Release 8/29/2016 Orange County, California
OC Hard Rockers BEHIND THE FALLEN premiered their video for “Reflections”, a collaboration featuring The Word Alive vocalist Telle Smith, today on AP Magazine.
On the collaboration with Smith, singer Johnny Presley says, “We connected with Telle through our management, and the opportunity came up to do a song together and obviously we jumped at it. We’re all huge fans, and Telle’s one of the most amazing frontmen in the business. We jumped into the studio with him for a day, there was great chemistry, and we cranked out “Reflections”, which turned out absolutely amazing. We can’t wait to get it out to the fans and look forward to, hopefully, performing the track with Telle live someday.”
The video was shot at Sound Matrix Studio and Huntington Beach, CA.
The band will release their debut LP AS THE SKY FALLS THROUGH via EMP Label Group in the new year. The full-length offering will feature promo single “Satellite”, which has already been released with a lyric video that has already generated over 50,000 views.
First bursting onto the Orange County scene in 2011, BTF released their debut 6 song EP Pages of the Past, Produced by Erik Ron, before embarking on several tours supporting their release with Assuming We Survive, Trapt, and their own headline tour.
In 2013, the band followed up with their single and video for “You’re Just A Friend”, with a renewed pop-punk infused direction that generated a new wave of huge attention for the band. BTF has since developed their sound into a finely tuned machine, deftly maneuvering between Hard Rock, Metal, and Pop Punk, behind the fierce melodic growl of vocalist Johnny Presley. After a year-plus hiatus the band emerged with a retooled lineup and team, and were brought to the attention of EMP head of A&R Thom Hazaert, the rest, as they say, is history.
