Tell me about the story of the band!
Hi everybody! The Infall project was born at the end of 2013 from an idea of Alessio (voice) and Lorenzo (drums). When the line-up had been completed with the entrance of Miky (guitar) and, at last, Cisco (bass), in February/March 2014 the band started the composition process getting inspiration from bands as Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Baptists. The band recorded its first EP “Nitecomes” in September 2014 and starts performing live at the beginning of 2015. In June the band signed for the Italian label This Is Core Records and published the EP in September.

What did you do in the last six months?
We played live and composed new stuffs, trying to evolve our idea of sound and spending a lot of time in the rehearsal room. To be honest, excluding August, we did the same things we’ve done in the last two years!

What have you got in your wallet now?
We have three new songs, two of which we’re already performing live. And since we’ve got other four songs to be completed we’re seriously considering the idea of recording a full length next year. However, for now we’re mostly concentrated on the promotion of our first Ep “Nitecomes”.

Why have you chosen this name for your band?
This is always an hard question. We could say we chose it because “it sounded good”. We wanted a name that was easy to remember, that had no specific meaning and that inspired a certain feeling. Fall can be Autumn, and we know what autumn stands for. Fall can also represent something that is going to break, but it’s not broken yet. We are Infall, written as one word, because we want to embody a feeling, not a concept.

How important is the look/appearance for your band?
Honestly, we don’t really care about this things. When we go to a club to play a gig we don’t change our clothes before the live performing. We think we play what we play because it’s a natural consequence of what we are. And in our opinion fringes and funny hairstyles are pretty “unconfortable”…

Tell us about the new EP “Nitecomes”. Are you fully satisfied with it?
Yes we are, completely. This EP represents the idea of sound we had in our minds. When we started recording it, our idea was to have an artistic product that was clearly “played and conceived by man in flash and blood”, with the human imperfections involved. We take only three days for the recording, and almost other three for mixing and mastering.
Last but not least, the fact that we’ve edited and triggered anything and the fact that this is a completely auto-produced EP is a matter of pride for us.

Which is the highest point of the EP?
We really don’t know. Even if we tried to characterize every song, in our opinion this is a pretty uniform EP seen as a whole.

…And the low point?
If we consider the intensity, the 6th track called “The Fall” is a short and moody instrumental song that introduces the last track called “The Fib”. This is the most “relaxed” side of “Nitecomes”, without doubt. But, if you’re talking about “quality”, we really don’t know where to find a specific low point, also because of the shortness of the EP.

How would you define your sound?
We blend Hardcore rythms with Mathcore elements, in a sound that stands at the confluence of late ’90 and our days. Our sound has to be as row as possible and without compromises, trying to move always from chaos to order. If I had to find three adjectives I would say sharp, dry and wild.

Math-core. Describe for me these words! And what do you think, is a good compromise to describe your style?
Math core is a music genre rooted in a metalcore context, with complex rhythmical devices. Sincerely, for now we think math core represents a small part of our sound, talking expecially about “Nitecomes”. In this EP we are probably more related to an hardcore/post-hardcore reality, even if we’re putting more math elements in our latest compositions.

Which bands have influenced your style?
Mainly Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan and Baptists like said before. But we could also cite Everytime I Die, Ken Mode, some elements of Refused, Helmet and other nineties giants.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Honestly we think perfection doesn’t exist, and consequently it’s impossible to talk about perfect happiness. Everyone has its own way to be happy which can be conflicting and intolerable for someone other. If we talk about human and personal happiness probably it has to be found in the awareness of being completely fulfilled, in everyone’s personal way.

Tell me some of the bands you admire.
In addition to the bands previously cited, there are lot of Italian bands we admire, like Destrage, Storm(O), Laghetto (now split-up), Anewrage and so on, because they share with us the experience of playing music in a country which isn’t ready to appreciate this kind of music yet.

What song is in your head right now?
“Cash Out” by Fugazi!

And of your local music scene?
It’s a quite dead and frustrating situation. Lot of clubs here are closing mostly because less and less people enjoy live performances of emergent bands. Moreover, the genre of music we play, being not very popular in Italy, doesn’t help us and other post-hardcore bands to attract a new and consistent public.

What is the most embarrassing situation you’ve ever been with Infall?
It was the night we signed for the label. After the signing we decided to commemorate the event and… S**t happened.

Have you got a good reason to be in Behind Magazine?
Yes we think we have, because we consider ourself a band with its own personality and sound. We hope your readers will enjoy “Nitecomes”, available on Spotify and Itunes. All the best! Thank you, Behind Mag!
Enjoy the Fall
