Three former members of the Swedish modern metal band ONE WITHOUT have launched a brand project called CHARACTERS. The new group's debut single, "Save The Fallen", offers the first taste of what fans can expect from CHARACTERS' upcoming EP.

"Save The Fallen" will be made available on January 2 via the biggest digital music providers.

CHARACTERS was formed in late 2012 by Joonas Niskanen and Joni Kaartinen following the breakup of ONE WITHOUT after almost a decade of existence. The band started out in September as a studio project in Gothenburg, with Robin Wiberg (keyboards) and Olle Töpel (ONE WITHOUT) joining shortly thereafter. After weeks of auditioning at Audio G8 Studio, CHARACTERS found the voice that fit perfectly the sound that they were after, and Ludvig Haby was recruited as the band's frontman.
