Add Information:

Blackrosefalls are a six-piece rock band from Manchester, UK. Childhood friendships from primary school spawned what would eventually become blackrosefalls, when, in 2002, under the different name of 'Without Permission', Stefan Harrison, Matt Sayward, Shaun Heaps and Luke Stephens got together (at the tender age of 12), and contemplated what they could do collectively to prevent the boredom, monotony and restrictions imposed from living in a small town. The bands first shows were all around the Macclesfield area, playing covers and writing their own songs. Luke later left the band and the rest of the group continued as a 3 piece for almost a year. During this period, the band wrote and recorded their first EP, which contained 6 tracks that the band allowed for free download on their website. The band soon recruited another student from their high school, Alistair Bower, to fill in on bass duties. In July of 2005, the band were starting to become a bit more mature, and realised that music was what they had passion in their lives for, and that is what they wanted to do with their lives: Matt was quoted as saying:

"The main problem with starting to play in a band is it makes every other career alternative look shit in comparison."

The band started to step up their live shows a few gears, after having realised that in the live arena is where a band needs to make everything count. We're really into the idea of making ourselves noticed at a venue, no matter what size the place is. When we first started out, we were nowhere near as tight a band as we are now, and I guess it's fair to say we took a bit of shit, but that's only fuelled us to prove ourselves and do our utmost to change people's perceptions of what we're all about. Plus, any fans you've won over, you've got to keep, you have to put on a good show for everyone that turns out or why should they bother, you know? says Shaun. If a band's bad live, you'll tell everyone. A bad review screams louder than any positive.
