Midas Fall

Founded in early 2009 in Edinburgh, Scotland, MIDAS FALL’s independently-released EP of early demos caught the attention of renowned UK DJ, Tom Robinson, at BBC Radio 6Music, who featured the track “Century” on his BBC Introducing Program. By 2010, the band joined the Monotreme Records roster for the release of debut LP, Eleven. Return And Revert. Likened to Portishead and Explosions In The Sky, the record enjoyed critical acclaim internationally.

Founded in early 2009 in Edinburgh, Scotland, MIDAS FALL’s independently-released EP of early demos caught the attention of renowned UK DJ, Tom Robinson, at BBC Radio 6Music, who featured the track “Century” on his BBC Introducing Program. By 2010, the band joined the Monotreme Records roster for the release of debut LP, Eleven. Return And Revert. Likened to Portishead and Explosions In The Sky, the record enjoyed critical acclaim internationally. Verbicide Magazine gushed, “It’s bold, it’s tense, it’s melodic, haunting, driven, and, best of all, intriguing. All this is coupled with the striking vocals of Elizabeth Heaton. It’s the kind of singing that echoes somewhere close to the heart, maybe the mind, but perhaps more appropriately, the spine,” while Rock Sound championed Heaton noting, “she surprises with a strong display of vocals, asserting her position throughout the album... an engrossing listen." Opening number, “MovieScreens,” was featured on the BBC TV drama, Lip Service, soundtrack, which charted in the UK's Top 20 and has since been released in Canada and Australia, increasing the bands overseas recognition. The following year saw MIDAS FALL complete their first-ever European tour which included a slot at Belgium's Dunk!Cinema!, Germany's Dark Spring Festival and sold-out shows in Athens, Sofia, Glasgow, Manchester and London. The band also secured endorsements with JHS Hornby (Fret King Guitars), Diago, DiPinto Guitars, Dava Picks and Lion Cajon Drums, no small feat for a relatively “new” band.

Momentum continued through 2012 when MIDAS FALL performed at Switzerland's prestigious Deadline Festival, shared the stage with labelmates 65daysofstatic and Reigns In London at the Monotreme Records 10th Birthday showcase, performed headline slots in London and Budapest and supported We Were Promised Jetpacks and Her Name Is Calla around the UK. Later that year, the ensemble unleashed the As Our Blood Separates EP. Called an “intriguing listen,” and applauded for their meticulous fusions of, “haunting, electronic post-rock, catchy alt rock, and shoegaze,” in 4.5/5 review by Decoy, the EP served as a precursor to their critically-applauded second full-length, Wilderness, released in April of 2013. Sputnik Music hailed the record’s, “undeniable beauty,” while The Skinny issued, “Wilderness succeeds on the weight of its emotional punch,” further praising Heaton’s, “dramatic, impassioned vocal performances.” In November that year they followed up with the Fluorescent Lights EP, which With Guitars commended for their combination “of thundering melodic rock guitar with electronic flourishes and Elizabeth Heaton’s soaring melancholic vocals,” accompanied by a full European tour.

MIDAS FALL continues to transcend genre boundaries with The Menagerie Inside. The record will be released worldwide September 4th, 2015 on CD and digital download formats, as well as a limited edition 180-gram vinyl LP in translucent purple with black splatter, with a free album CD and poster inside. « hide
