A FABLE FOR THE CURIOUS

A FABLE FOR THE CURIOUS

BandRockAlternative

UK's 3 piece Teesside heroes, A Fable For The Curious, who, with their own unbelievable mix of crushing licks and fists in the air vocals are surely destined for stadiums. Imagine the immense power of Drowning Pool with the accessible rock sensibilities of Foo Fighters. Awooga!

Biography

After a few years of line up changes during the creation of our sound and style, the current line up was decided around end of 2007, as a 3 piece Fable set out to create original powerful music combined with lyrics of meaning and depth. Everyone in the band adds to mix and creations in the studio. We write together, drink together and hang out together in and outside the band.

With the age of most of us in the band, mixed with so many years of playing writing and listening generate a huge list of bands that can be placed into the area of influence, but here's a few:
KOL, Cash, Machine head, Slipknot, Guns and Roses, Metallica, Nirvana, Drowning pool, Foo fighters to name a few.

Unlike a lot of bands these days we don’t follow any rules in writing just whatever comes out is what you hear. We don’t care if it’s really heavy or really soft.
A Fable For The Curious states what we are all about.
It's a look at the affects people have on each other and their beliefs all across the world.
We see religion for example as a fable for the curious i.e. people who need to know what’s next after their lives are done. A belief which is important as you never know what’s round the corner so live for the now and embrace what you have.

We think Rock/Metal/Alternative whatever you call it, is all about being who you want to be and not to follow the sheep and we never want to be a success on the back of another bands scene.
We will always write and enjoy playing no matter what. Respect is success, and we have gained plenty of that from all the great fans and other bands who come to see us or play along side us.

The last 2 yrs of fable life has been very busy seeing us being asked to play The Cavern in Liverpool to a packed house with buses of people following.
Winning a Battle of the Bands competition, going up against 40 - 50 of the UK's finest bands and being hailed as the next big thing in the North East of England.

Word of mouth is all we've used so far to promote but playing local venues has been a crush with fans, people queuing up stairs to hear us.
Bigger venues linger in the near future after big time promoters are taking notice and coming forward with nice offers of which some we've had to turn down due to demands and dates filling up. A UK tour and European Tour is on the cards over coming year with ideas flooding from fable camp.

"An inspiration to all bands out there. To cross these lyrics that are from the heart, with the music from the soul , is a talent worth talking about" Lauren Carlisle ( A local Fan) :)

Lyrics

A Slow Demise

Written By: Mark O'Hare

When you feel your life
slip away at night
And when you feel the need
the fear wins the fight
Tears collide to create
your slow demise

No complication No compromise
Not understanding the reasons why
you've become
half the man in your eyes

I've been waiting a long
long time would be an understatement I'd say
I've been squeezing
your life for so long
I cant remember the
reason i'm here

When you feel the
Pressure inside your chest
trying tempt those memories
you've surpressed
The power of loss
It consumes your thoughts

When you feel the
swell inside your throat
you try to rationalise its growth
your the host
in your anger it grows

I've been waiting a long
long time would be an understatement I'd say
I've been squeezing
your life for so long
I cant remember the
reason i'm here

When we're alone you cant deny,
the overwhelming need we cry
All alone we feel it
no amount of life can see it
Alone we cry

Alone in the dark
sat thinking of you
uncontrolable trembling
a message from you.
I can't fake it
I can't take it
I'm Breaking, I'm Breaking
I'm Breaking from you.

I've been waiting a
long long time would be
an understatement I'd say
I've been squeezing
your life for so long
I cant remember the
reason i'm here

when we're alone you cant deny
the overwhelming need we cry
All alone we feel it
no amount of life can see it
Alone we cry
