Edmonton based progressive metal metal band Fall of Earth are ready to rock Lethbridge again in support of their second album “From the Ashes”  at the Slice, Friday, Sept. 29.


The band, including Brody Bauer – lead guitar, vocals; Myles Packer – bass, vocals; Alex Rye – lead vocals; Brendan Meilleur – drums, vocals and Matthew Lindholm – rhythm guitar, vocals​ , played the Studio for their last visit in May, but stop by the Slice this time, two weeks into a mammoth eight week tour.

“Some of us quit our jobs to do this. And it was the right move, because I love doing this ,” said lead guitarist / vocalist Brody Bauer from a tour stop in Kamloops, where he is already starting to lose track of time and locations.


“It’s been a ton of fun. People seem to like the sound of the band,” Bauer said.

“We don’t know what 10 week tour looks like yet. But we’ve done six week tours before. It’s fun to travel and see new places. This tour we‘re going to a lot of places we‘ve never been before which is really awesome,” Bauer said.

 They took advantage of a few days off in Kamloops to film a music video for the second single off the album, “The Dead and Soon To Be.”

“We went to Party Central and bought hospital gowns and acted like we just escaped from an asylum. We filmed ourselves doing ordinary things. It was fun and very interesting. But somebody called the RCMP because five guys running around in hospital gowns is suspicious behaviour,” he chuckled, adding this will be their third music video. They don’t have a release  date for this video. 

They also have videos for the album’s title track “From the Ashes” and another one for “ Find Peace”  from their first album, which is about his dad, who passed away in 2019.

Bauer enjoyed playing the Studio in Lethbridge in May.

“ It was pretty rad. It was the first time we played a house with beds and stuff, so we played the show and crashed there,” he continued.

Fall of Earth are breaking in new members including new rhythm guitarist Matthew Lindholm and new bassist Myles Packer.

“They are fitting in well personally and musically. They really allow us to have a fuller sound,” Bauer said, adding the live show is pretty close to the sound of the album, which they released in April. They have been together for four-and-a-half years, forming in April 2019.


“The first album was kind of all over the place. We refined our sound more on this album. This album shows more depth overall. It is definitely more progressive. On this album we experimented more. It sounds more like us,” Bauer said, adding he has always loved progressive rock and grew up listening to his dad‘s Rush albums before discovering bands like Dream Theatre and Opeth.

“People seem to like the more progressive sound,” Bauer said. 


 Fall of Earth will be joined by Medicine Hat punk band Total Wolf and Lethbridge’s Switched Off at the Slice, Friday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m..

 Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Door open at 8 p.m.
