Old Lyme, Conn. – November 10, 2011 – Since hitting the post-hardcore scene in 2007 with their debut album and earning a spot on the Warped Tour that same year, blessthefall has made measured progress in its career, reaching legions of fans while playing larger, more prominent venues around the world. Their most recent album, Awakening, was released last month and solidifies the high energy sound and intensity the band has been crafting over the course of its discography, which now includes three albums.
This year, blessthefall will be performing a six-week headlining “Fearless Friends Tour” throughout North America for the first time in two years, with audio specialist Sennheiser at their back. Over the course of the tour, which reaches the entire span of the continental U.S. and parts of Canada, the band will be playing prominent venues including The Opera House in Toronto and The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles. No matter where they are playing, blessthefall routinely relies on a full range of Sennheiser microphones as well as a full complement of Sennheiser wireless RF equipment to ensure that their performances are glitch free and possess the highest possible grade of audio quality for the band's many thousands of fans.
blessthefall's toolbox of Sennheiser gear includes several e945 microphones, which are used on the vocals as well as a full range of Sennheiser's evolution series microphones, which are found on the drums, bass and guitars. To capture the intensity of the band's riveting guitars, they use a modern day classic: The Sennheiser e 906. “It cuts through really well and captures the tone really accurately,” observes lead guitarist Eric Lambert. “We want our live show to sound as close to the record as possible and the Sennheiser mics help us achieve this.”
blessthefall also relies on Sennheiser ew300 IEM G3 series of in ear monitors, ensuring that all the band members are able to hear each other's performances loud and clear. “We just switched over to Sennheiser IEMs recently,” Lambert says. “Beau had been using IEMs from one of Sennheiser's competitors, said there was absolutely no comparison. The Sennheiser IEMs are more clear, there is no static, and they just don't fail. It has been an awesome experience for all of us.”
