|FALLING UP KICKS THE SPRING OFF WITH NO. 1 ROCK SINGLE, STUDIO TIME, AND WEST COAST TOUR
20 March 2007
Coming off of the fan-loved remix album, Exit Lights, Falling Up’s Christian Rock radio single “Searchlights” recently hit No. 1 on both CRW and R&R charts for two weeks. “Searchlights” marks the sixth career No. 1 rock single. Coming up in April, radio listeners will hear the new single “Flights” also from Exit Lights.
After two highly successful studio projects (Crashings, Dawn Escapes), Falling Up is currently in the studio this month recording their third studio album currently set to release in August (BEC Recordings/Tooth and Nail Records).
Taking time from the studio to share about their new project lead vocalist Jesse Ribordy shares, “We are currently in the studio recording our third full length album with brilliant producer Aaron Sprinkle. The level of energy for ideas and new sounds are blooming and lush like we have never experienced before. Stylistically we are experimenting with ideas ranging everywhere from the space electronic sci-fi influence of Spielberg movies in the 80's, to dark and dreamy piano based rock and pop that has prevailed throughout our musical spectrum. We are hoping to achieve a musical experience that will revive high energy rock and roll back into the system and at the same time drift listeners off into a deep and dreamy sleep. Lyrically we are are weaving through landscapes of imagination and peace to present clarity in love and hope instead of disconnection and recklessness. Overall, this record is something that we have been waiting to put out since this bands conception.”
From the beginning Falling Up has been a strong touring band with hundred of dates throughout the year. True to this reputation, the band heads out starting April 19th headlining the Oregon Trail tour. The west coast tour will feature bands RunKidRun and The Send as well as special guests A Dream Too Late and Ever Stays Red. Tour dates are below. Attached tour poster.
Hailing from Albany, Oregon, Falling Up transformed into a full-time musical project after graduating high school in 2002. The act quickly made its first impression in the national music scene with its Aaron Sprinkle-produced debut, 2004’s Crashings, which went on to sell nearly 100,000 copies. Following the release, the band embarked on a steady stream of tour dates (with over six tours and 400 shows in a two-year span) establishing a strong, loyal fan base. In October 2005, Falling Up came back with an astounding new studio release steering clear of the sophomore slump with Dawn Escapes, which surpassed all expectations. Ready to talk about their upcoming project, Falling Up will be attending GMA 2007 and is available for media interviews.
