Ohio metal band Then Falls The Sky released their new EP ‘Break Free’. With hard-hitting vocals and driving guitars, this heavy and dynamic release shines light on overcoming internal darkness.
“Break Free is about exactly that. Breaking free from your internal struggles that hold you back. While everyone is different and unique, often we get in our own way of growth and progression.” – Nick Barlage (vocals)
Recorded at After The Bridge Studio.
Produced/mixed/mastered by Chad McElwee.
Special shoutout to Hollz the Stalker and Mike Van Allen for their support.
Then Falls The Sky is spreading some light in an otherwise dark world. Passion filled and very driven for success. While they haven’t changed the world, their impact in the world around them can be felt with all the charity drives they participate in every year.
Nick Barlage (vocals) brings his energetic youth to the project with a very healthy outlook on life, striving to make his voice be felt. Jacob Smith (guitar) has his no nonsense approach and it shows in everything the band does. Oney Michaels (bass) brings his unique stage presence and go with the flow attitude, and he is often no stranger to a mosh pit. Chad McElwee (guitar) and Amanda McElwee (drums) are siblings and contribute to the overall chemistry of the band. Dynamic and diverse make up all that this band represents, but every note has its purpose.
In 2018, their song “Synical” was awarded Metal Song of the Year by the IMEA Awards. The song was written to bring awareness to suicide and how that act can affect those around you. The band’s 2019 EP release ‘Set on Rising’ was testament to letting go of the past that you can’t change and moving forward without expectations. They released their new EP ‘Break Free’ on July 15th, 2020.
