The Fallen Change Name (Already)
2009-06-23 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 10 Comments

The new project featuring three ex-members of Evanescence along with Carly Smithson of American Idol fame have already been forced to change their band's name. The band have changed their name from The Fallen to We Are the Fallen.

Apparently there was already two (at least) established bands with the name The Fallen - an experimental band out of Philadelphia and a metal act out of Orange County that was signed to Metal Blade Records. Both have used the exposure to issue statements and gain a bit of free press.

Philadelphia's The Fallen:

"We are truly sorry for the confusion that stemmed [last week] from an unexpected announcement from SKH Music [the management of Moody and Smithson's new group]. The band will continue to bring their music to the fans and perform as The Fallen."

Orange County's The Fallen:

"Metal Blade's The Fallen "has been dormant for a few years but is preparing a comeback and new album with the popularity of metal at a new high."

So, uh, if Dave or Jom could change the band's name to "We Are the Fallen" or you might want to wait to see if they have to change it again (or just decide that the new name is even worse than the original).

the fallen seems like it would be such a common name for a band anyway.

i bet the OC fallen decided to do this "comeback" just because of this incident.
