“I think the hardest bit is getting the chopping changes. Some work, some don’t, and just finding that balance so it’s not all just dropping into each other.”

Following a triumphant rebirth last year with their comeback single of sorts The PMA Effect, Gold Coast noise machine The Final Fall quickly busied themselves on the live circuit, pumping out a second single Live Everyday earlier this year.

Their eclectic and confronting mashing of genres has ensured The Final Fall have made an impact anywhere and everywhere they play, with a menacing and strangely cohesive blending of genres from punk to metal to rock to hardcore creating a sonic maelstrom of venomous intent that is difficult to put into words.

So the band have decided to let their music do the talking, with the premiere at 4pm on May 10 of their latest single Sold – Selling Out Part 2 exclusively via HEAVY mag.

Another slab of musical mayhem, Sold is the successor to The Final Fall’s original song Selling Out which was released back in 2011. It may seem like a long journey between drinks, but The Final Fall are determined to make up for lost time, with guitarist Benny Whiskey sitting down with HEAVY to tell us more.

“It’s a bit of a journey,” he laughed. “Our music has a lot of punk and metal and hardcore in there, and with this one we just wanted to push the boundaries. It’s actually the sequel of one of our songs we wrote about a decade ago called Selling Out and is the same as that one, just pushing the boundaries musically. Lyrically, it’s almost off the name – Selling Out, Sold – we just wanted to keep the same sequel going. In short note, don’t sell out on your friends or family because that’s what gets you through life.”

In the full interview, Benny covered various aspects of The Final Fall‘s music such as timing, promotional strategies, and the musical and lyrical content of the song. They also talked about the band’s history, including a previous release and their return to the music scene after a hiatus. Additionally, they explored the challenges of re-entering the music world after a long absence, their recent experiences with live shows, and the band’s exploration of different musical genres.

Benny provided a comprehensive overview of the band’s upcoming events in the punk and hardcore scene, discussing support for renowned bands like Belvedre and The Decline, an upcoming tattoo convention show, the charitable nature of the Rock Beats Depression event and more.
