Stand Down

Stand Down


We're an alt rock trio from good old Camden. Our music is a cross between Biffy Clyro and The Appleseed Cast with sweet melodies and rapid time changes in between.


After playing in bands together since school, David Geli and Gray Fillery joined forces with Gray's brother Andrew in 2007 to form Stand Down. With an eclectic range of musical influences coming in from all three, the sound they stumbled upon is difficult to pigeon-hole but has already been likened to bands such as Biffy Clyro and The Appleseed Cast, mixing heavy bass lines, loud euphoric guitars and pounding drums all brought together by unexpectedly melodic vocal lines and varied dynamics. The main focus for forming the band was to play live and the energy and intensity of the live shows is hard to beat. Gray and Geli's previous band had managed to gather a strong local following in the South East and gave them a taste for really pushing forward when they were signed to Brighton based DIY label Killer Ska records and managed to support Capdown, Goober Patrol and Lightyear among others. They played at the London Garage and even had secured main support for The Distillers on their UK tour which sadly, The Distillers had to cancel due to 9/11. Unfortunately when Gray went travelling for a year they put the band on indefinite hiatus and when he returned the new project with Andrew was born. The bands influences range from Billy Talent to Sigur Ros, and Paradise Lost to Biffy Clyro, stopping by at Death Cab For Cutie along the way
