"Hard riffs and provocative lyrics fishnet the disc’s too-cool-for-school attitude in a rhythmic overload of piercing crescendos..." - Emerson Blais, Collegiate Times
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, 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.
