Today we bring you As December Falls. Fun rockin pop punk for the kids out there who like to dance or jump as they sing along. The tunes come out you fast, and without a doubt I think having Bethany on vocals keeps the focus on the lyrics. Very cool voice, the band sounds like they have been at this for years. If your up for a little fun, give a listen and tell your friends about As December Falls…..
Hi our name is….

We are from…….
Nottingham in the UK
Who are some that have an influence on you
How old were all of you when you started to play and who plays what in the band
Bethany Curtis – Vocals. I started singing at around 14.
Ande Hunter – Lead Guitar and Harmonies. I’ve been playing guitar since I was 14 and singing since I was about 16.
Timmy Francis – Bass and since I was 13.
Lukas James – Drums. I started playing at 13 encouraged by my Dad who is also a drummer.
Can you tell us about the process you use, from writing the songs all the way through getting the songs out
Timmy writes a lot of the rhythm and bass guitars and the rest of the band writes their individual parts around him. We’re all involved in the writing process and through suggestions and ideas to each other.
We’ve worked with a couple of great producers for the past recordings and are planning to get back into the Studio in May.
What are some of the challenges you face as musicians and how have you overcome those challenges
We all have very strong opinions and are very vocal about how we feel. We’ve had to learn to compromise and work together as a team even when we might not see eye to eye
If you could pick any time to travel back to for music, where would you go and what year would it ….
Who are all of you currently listening to ….
Kanye West. All of the Kanye.
If you could open for any Band right now who would that be and why?
We’d love to tour with Don Broco or You Me At Six. Their shows are amazing and we love their music!
My youngest son is 13 and in a Band, what advice would you offer him…
Social media. Social media and a bit more social media. Without any label or support the internet is your biggest friend. Learn to use it wisely. Also, never stop writing music. No one ever wrote Here Comes The Sun the first time they picked up a guitar.
The one thing we want you to remember while your listening to us….
If you like what you hear, get your ass to a show and come party with us!
Our plans for 2015…..
Our next single ‘Capture’ is out on March the 30th!
