"New Jersey Manboys Legend of the Fall Cross the Border to the Blockley Pourhouse on July 10"

Not to denigrate the great state of New Jersey, it of the full service gas stations, but I wouldn’t automatically consider it breeding a rising star in the pop music scene…particularly a star comprised of five siblings who can avoiding murdering each other long enough to produce some wicked tunes and a rapidly-growing following. Legend of the Fall is just one such type of anomaly, a family band grown in Jersey, deeply enmeshed in its religion, and with the unique ability to write pop songs that consist of more than pink bubble gum and monosyllabic rhymes. (You know…something, something, “have my heart”, something, something, “we won’t part”.) They are set to play the Blockley Pourhouse on July 10th, opening for LYNAM, the show also featuring East of Anything and Ecotone.

If Only She Hadn’t Eaten That Apple – From the Mouths of Babes

Legend of the Fall is JD, Skylar, Levi, Madison, and Casey Jones Alam, ranging in age from 14 to 22. We’re not going to call them Emo, because they have more depth than your typical Emo band. We’re going to call them comforting to listen to, upbeat; we’re going to call them sweetly corporate pop and as much a guilty pleasure as chick lit in the bathtub while eating Bon Bons. They’re the type of band you would expect to help old ladies across the street and to clean the hotel room in which they stayed rather than trashing it. They’re a family, and that kind of familiarity and synchronicity is echoed in their music. Are they a Christian band? No, but they are a band, and they are Christian, and that has made an impact on the evolution of their group and the manner in which they’re striving for musical maturity and success. Lets recap, girls…good Christian boys, MUSICIANS at that, who are absolutely adorable (see above, Legend of the Fall) and don’t have girlfriends. That’s right, I asked. Love to make a good Christian boy squirm.

What Would Jesus Do? He’d Come to the Blockley Pourhouse!

The Blockley Pourhouse, located at 3801 Chestnut St., is the former Brownie’s 38th Street (University City location, obviously). It boasts a large stage, exposed brick, and, apparently, really nice blackboard menus…it actually boasts this, look at the website. Legend of the Fall is going to charm the crowd with a combination of its boyish charm, innocent ambition, and spot-on execution of what is, in reality, damn catchy music. Tickets can be purchased here for $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Let us recall, fellow fans, that LYNAM is headlining along with East of Anything and Ecotone. The best news? Under 21ers are still able to attend when accompanied by an adult. (That’s over twenty five, friends…apparently, Philadelphia adheres to the car rental version of distinguishing an adult from a minor.) Given that the mean age of the band is barely eighteen, Legend of the Fall has plenty of time to stretch its vocal and lyrical muscles, garner a following, grow some chest hair, and merge artistically as only a longtime band can. The point is, they don’t need to. They’re all that, and more. Come check them out Saturday, July 10th at the Blockley Pourhouse, and be sure to fawn a little bit…they’re still young enough to be in awe of it.*

Legend Of The Fall has defined its own genre in a musical landscape dominated by mediocrity and nu-metal clones. In just two years, the band has created an undeniable sound that they have affectionately dubbed “Pop-core”.

Hailing from Ridgefield Park, NJ, Legend Of The Fall consists of five brothers ranging in age from 14 to 21. After first stepping onto a stage in April of 2007, the brothers JD, Skyler, Levi, Madison and Casey Jones Alam have never looked back. “The adrenaline and roar of the crowd was the most amazing feeling that we’d ever felt. We immediately knew that we had found our calling” states JD.

With influences ranging from Led Zeppelin to Panic At The Disco to Paramore, Legend Of The Fall make music that captures the essence of the youth of today. The band credit their father as their biggest influence and the reason they became a band. “Our dad was in a band with his brothers when they were younger.” says JD. “There was only three of them and they were 80's classic rock type stuff. Watching them when we were young, it just felt like that's what we were gonna grow up to do. We didn't really think of making it or not but we just somehow knew that we were destined to grow up to be musicians.”

The name Legend Of The Fall came from an all night session of sitting around the kitchen table brainstorming. “Our dad said how about Legend of the Fall?” says Skyler. “We decided to take all of the names that we had come up with and put them in a hat. We then prayed and pulled out a piece of paper and it said Legend of the Fall. Well it was Legend of a Fall, but we changed it because if we used the first letters, we didn't wanna be called LOAF.” “We're very big on meaning” adds JD. “The one thing we promised each other is we'll never let go of the fact that everything needs to have purpose. We don't do empty meaningless music, so we knew we needed a meaning behind our name. People say that the story of Daniel is just a legend and that Adam and Eve are just stories of Jewish legend. So, we connected it to the fall of man to show that people will consider it to be Legend of the Fall.”

For the past two years, Legend Of The Fall has built up a loyal fan base by captivating audiences with their explosive live shows. The band has self released 2 CD’ss simply titled “Sketches” and “Sketches Part II”. The CDs showcase the bands ability to write amazing, undeniable, hook-laden songs.

In December of 2009, the band signed a management deal with heavy weight PR and management firm, New Ocean Media (Framing Hanley, Candlebox, Red). Legend of the Fall has been working and recording at Soundmine Recording Studio in East Stroudsburg with producer Dan Malsch (Forever the Sickest Kids, Framing Hanley, Bigwig, Tantric). “We are looking forward to what lies ahead” states Levi. “2010 is going to be an amazing year!”

When asked about the meaning behind the bands songs, JD explains “Step Up” is about hope. The chorus is “Step up to the plank we're diving in, Step up to the plank we're diving in, maybe we'll drown and maybe we'll swim, Step up to the plank we're diving in.” The whole point is we don't know the consequences to anything, but we have to do what we believe and just know and hope that we'll pull through. We're Christians so hope is a big deal for us. Hope, faith, and love are the three things being a Christian entails and that’s what shines through. Also, we obviously appeal to a younger audience being young ourselves. There's a line that says “Maybe mom and dad just don't understand but we do, yeah we do.” This is more about hope again. Hope is what will get you

“ Keep You're Emo Glasses On (Scene Girls at the Beach)” is pretty straight forward. It's about the whole emo and scene culture and how we're part of it and the girls who are in this culture are really hot. It's nothing vulgar, perverse, or sexual, but it's a statement of these girls are really cute. It kind of approaches it from a psychological point of view, where we talk about the stores they shop at, the places to find them, and the fact that it's a culture conforming to anti-conformism. It's really fun and poppy a lot of people love it.”

Their debut EP "SELL OUTS" was recently released on ITUNES on the Island Def Jam Digital label on July 6th, 2010.

In 2 Timothy 4:4, the Bible states "They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths."

So if the people of the world do turn to myths and legends, won't they then think the truth is the legend? They would refer to the truth as the legend of the creation, legend of the prophets, and the LEGEND OF THE FALL!
