As Dusk Falls
By Brennan McFadden
As Dusk Falls, an experimental metalcore band, was founded in 2013 by frontman Jack Siren and friends in Diboll,TX. Just south of Lufkin. The band started out practicing in a friend’s brother’s room, traveling(and often sleeping) in a tiny Nissan truck to get around. Fast forward a few years, some we financial hurdles, and 13 lineup changes and you find the band now. Calling Nacogdoches home, the band now consists of Judah Juarez (bear) on the drums, Stewart Haas(raven) and Chadd Gibbs (owl) on guitar, Patrick Stewart (elk) on bass, and the only surviving original member Jack Siren(wolf) on vocals.
The band has since upgraded their practice situation to a storage unit and a beautiful trailer for their equipment. As Dusk Falls provides a heavy, yet literate and original sound that catches your attention immediately and won’t let go. This acts influences range from Machinehead, In Flames, In Fear and Faith, Between the Buried and Me, and TOOL and such classics as Rush ,Led Zeppelin, and even Prince. The band also draws influence from their hobbies such as Dragonball z, Magic the Gathering, Pokeman, and an avid love for comics as seen in the songs ‘lvl 100, magikarp, and ground n pound.
In addition to playing new cities and venues, As Dusk Falls is working diligently to add more theatrical flair to their shows and invites everyone to come out and join the experience. "Just feel like we have what it takes... and we want to not only make our dreams come true, but we want to make as many people as happy as we possibly can" says frontman Jack Siren. They are excited to be returning to Houston in May and invite you out to sample the fruits of their labor at You MAY Party! On May 14th at Dan Electro’s guitar bar. In the meantime check out the band’s reverbnation, facebook, instagram, etc.
