Still working on that hot first release.



Life moves on, and as all things eventually do, everything falls apart. When All Else Fails was formed from the wreckage of so many other endeavors in 2012, with the singular goal of creating what had been previously just out of reach.

Ben and Jon shared a long history together, having played, toured and recorded with Sees The Day. A volatile and unexpected split in 2005 left an incredibly uncomfortable rift between them that took more than 5 years to heal. Ben moved on to sing for Streetsville's melodic hardcore band Might As Well, and Jon formed the ska-punk outfit The Adult Film Industry, and met Jay, who had also finished an ill-fated tenure with an alternative band.

Time pressed forward. Ben grew tired of the scene, Jon tired of the drama, and they finally managed to speak to each other again at a local punk rock show. Their respective projects came to pass, and the original magnetism led to months of non-committal plans to jam. Ben began recording acoustic music and building songs of of the driving need to make music. The talks culminated in a half-hour jam that rekindled the old ambitions and hopes.

Sometimes the music has a message. Sometimes it's therapy and release. Sometimes it's simply all that keeps them going through the bullshit and turbulence of the daily grind.

Some bands that we thoroughly enjoy are Belvedere, Propagandhi, Strung Out, A Wilhelm Scream, Strike Anywhere, No Use For A Name, Satanic Surfers.
