Biography

Stars Fell On is an in-your-face rock band based in Blacksburg, VA. Every member of Stars Fell On has been playing music from an early age, giving the band a strong musical background as well as a long list of constantly changing influences including Unwritten Law, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Foo Fighters, Brand New, The Deftones, Story of the Year, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy and many others.

They have been blowing away audiences since the spring of 2003 and have shared the stage with hundreds of incredible artists including Reel Big Fish, Phantom Planet, Matt Nathanson and Jimmie's Chicken Shack in addition to winning a spot on 2006's Taste of Chaos Tour with The Deftones, Thrice, Story of The Year and many other bands.

The band has undergone a few member changes/additions since the beginning, and their sound has developed into something much greater than the original vision of the band. With the addition of Mike Murray (guitar/vocals), Casey Rafter (Bass) and Anthony Harika (guitar) to original members Justin Padgett (Lead Vocals) and Dan Kehler (drums), the band has matured and strengthened both in sound and style. With heart-felt, thought provoking lyrics, powerful pop-punk rhythms and fiery guitar and vocal harmonies, Stars Fell On manages to seamlessly incorporate modern driving guitar rock with delicate melodies creating music that is dynamically unique, passionate and universally-appealing.

When asked about the name of the band, the guys in Stars Fell On don't seem too concerned about the connotation of the title. They know what really matters is the music and that's what they care about. Since the group's formation the band has managed to juggle college classes and jobs in addition to the band itself. Songwriter Mike Murray devotes every ounce of his spare time to writing and perfecting dozens of songs. In late 2005, the band went into the studio to record their first high-quality demo. Stars Fell On released their self-titled EP in March of 2006, and have since received great response from music fans young and old alike. By relentlessly self-promoting themselves and booking every show they can get their hands on, the band's fan base is growing rapidly and they have plans of taking the music industry by storm. The band takes their music seriously and wants the world to do the same. Take a listen for yourself and you'll see why Stars Fell On is more than just your average rock band.

Lyrics

Yesterday

Written By: Stars Fell On

Breaking me down again with your ways
Nothing controls me now but the days
Passing by as I watch from the sky
How long will it be until I die?

So here I go
On my own
Left alone without a word of yesterday
Never changed
Stayed the same
Left alone without a word of who's to blame

Take these photographs of me
Frames of who I used to be
Even though I've never changed
In your heart I'm not the same

(Just tell me why)
We've grown so far apart
When we've come so far
We're just falling stars in the sky
(So tell me why)
I can't seem to fight this feeling
And this pain is stealing
My life away from me

Breaking me down again with your ways
Nothing controls me now but the days
Passing by as I watch from the sky
How long will it be until I die?
So many thoughts and questions why
Where will I go how long will I fly
Until the wind comes up from below
And steals me from this life I know
It's been so long and now I see
The truth behind reality
It took so long to get right here
Only to live my life in fear
Of all these things I thought were fake
And this choice i've had to make
All these things I know and feel
Are now so very very real

P.S. I Wrote This For You

Written By: Stars Fell On

Shattered window pane you cut your hand bleeding
Go on and scream, make it worth something
I'm spitting on the grave that lies above our heads
And all you can do is walk away
Hand in hand without a single emotion
Walking dead because we said I do
Paint a picture with your face the main attraction
But never look just like Dorian Grey

I'm tired of...
I'm tired of...

You're inconsistence driving me into the ground
Every time I think it's over it's again
You said that I would always be your best friend
Needle and thread, needle and thread
You're inconsistence driving me into the ground
Every time I think it's over it's again
You said that I would always be your best friend
Sewn to my heart your silhouette

Our words as weapons we were ever so deadly
Nothing compares to the arguments we had
Torn apart due to miscommunication
Torn apart do you even care?

You walked away and shut the door but not shut all the way
You said I'll be back but I read your intent like a heart struck lullaby
always your best friend (but never again)

Here We Are

Written By: Stars Fell On

I never thought I could feel this way
Never thought I could hear you say
The things that make me wonder
If I'll stay or leave this place today
Never thought I could hear you lie
Never thought I could hear you crying out
To me about the things you've done that you still try to hide
Wonder if I'll ever see you again
I know it's true I'm gone but not for long
I promise you I'm holding on to me not you
So don't try and make me I don't want to believe this was a waste of time in my life

You say the things that I should say
But you still don't know how I feel inside
Still I'm trying so hard
Just to be a friend of yours in the end

So take my words for what they are
I thought you knew I'd never put you on
But still you say to me the things I see
Are nothing more than apparitions envisioned
I can't see the future...

So here we are
Standing by this riverside
Trying to hide these tears that I've held inside so long
So here we are
Riding in this car so high
Eye to eye just to feel the way I used to know was real

I know you saw it coming
But still you're tryin just to hold on
I know you're thinking it's the end
But don't think just know it all depends on who we are
and who we are is who we always were...

(I can see the truth beneath your lies and I don't have to try that hard this time)
(I can find my way across this ocean of deceit you've poured on me)
