WE ARE THE FALLEN: Toronto Footage Available

Fan-filmed video footage of WE ARE THE FALLEN's March 31, 2010 concert in Toronto, Ontario, Canada as the support act for HIM can be viewed below.

WE ARE THE FALLEN is the group formed by EVANESCENCE co-founder Ben Moody (guitar) and other former members — John LeCompt (guitar) and Rocky Gray (drums) — along with "American Idol" powerhouse vocalist Carly Smithson and bassist Marty O'Brien (DISTURBED, KELLY CLARKSON, STATIC-X, METHODS OF MAYHEM,TOMMY LEE).

The band will release its debut album, "Tear The World Down", on May 11 via Universal Republic Records.

In a recent interview with Billboard.com, Moody said, "We had initially intended to go at this alone because we didn't feel like a major label was up to the challenge. I've had mixed experiences in the past, and major labels can fuck things up faster than anybody. But the entire Universal Republic team got what we wanted to do, and it was worth changing our plans and worth the risk to partner with them because we thought the outcome would be greater than something we'd do on our own."

Moody told Billboard.com that WE ARE THE FALLEN was most pleased that, along with co-producer Dan Certa, they could approach "Tear the World Down" as a piece of work rather than a compilation. "We definitely hunkered down and decided to write specifically for a cohesive record after we signed with Universal," he said. "We don't want albums to just be a collection of songs. We wanted to have a beginning, a middle and an end. So we sort of re-planned our attack at writing after we signed the deal."
