Feel the Fall is a four piece alternative rock band from Orange County, CA which officially formed over the summer of 2006. Obsessed with warm driving tones, passionate percussion and clarion countermelodies, Feel the Fall literally manipulates 22 strings to dynamically emulate the emotions of their lyrics. Influences include bands such as The Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Eat World, and Weezer amoung many others.

Feel the Fall was formed by lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player Dave Des Armier (Des Army A) from Huntington Beach, CA with a group of close friends all desiring to create and contribute to a style of music they love. Dave has performed most recently as the bassist of Nice (neese), former Orange County Music Awards Best New Band Nominee for 2004. After several members of Nice decided to form Tank Farm Clothing, Dave began collaborating (at first) with former band mate Jamin (drums) and then later invited Jerry (lead guitar/bgv's) to help play/promote/manage Feel the Fall. The trio performed together in the Orange County punk/ska band 180 who then changed their name to Flight 180 when they went on tour. Mike (bass) performed with the band Focused and also performed extensively on tours all around the United States.

The story of how the band chose the name Feel the Fall will vary depending on who you talk to. Is it about Isaac Newton? Is it about the turning leaves and crisp air at the change of the season? Actually, like the personal and emotional lyrics on every track, Feel the Fall is about feeling the emotions of the human condition. Feel The Fall is about living life and all that goes with it.

Feel The Fall competed in the Orange County Music Awards in 2007 and their song "Fever" was selected for the OCMA 2007 Compilation CD featuring 36 songs out of over 600 songs submitted from over 175 bands out of the Orange County, CA area.

In the Spring of 2007, Feel The Fall competed in the Socal Rock Revolution with over 300 other bands and earned their way into the final event at the Queen Mary on June 16, 2007, and has been placed on the line-up with Mickey Avalon, Unwritten Law, Zebrahead, Kevin Elliot and the Broken, Dare Devil Jane, The Dirty Heads, Steady Ground (featuring the drummer of The Offspring) and over 60 other qualifying bands.

In the summer of 2007, Feel The Fall earned their way into the Mai Tai Rumble, held at the Mai Tai Bar in Long Beach. This prestigious event is hosted by Richard Blade and Murphy Karges of Sugar Ray, and sponsored by Star 98.7, Budweiser, OC Weekly, Martin & Co., Malibu, Three Olives Vodka, Smart Levels, Bubba Gump Restaurant, and proudly supports Music For A Cure.

Currently, Feel The Fall is working on their debut record which is targeted to release in the Fall of 09.



Written By: Feel The Fall


Take me away to a better place
Where clouds, clouds blow across my face

Take me away to another world
Where our stories, stories are unfurled

Is it a sight we’ll never see?

I got a fever again
No place to begin, is this the end?
I need to see the light I need to see the sight
Shining through you again
To feel clean again

Take my hand, and feel the flame
The flame, will it ever be the same?
Take my hand, don’t feel insecure.
The thoughts, thoughts that obscure

When our hearts beat it feels so complete
Is there no tomorrow, for us to borrow
When I feel your hand in my hand
I can see the gleam of our loves dream
