Downfall 2012 is a 3-piece alternative metal/active rock band from Houston, TX. This trio of vocalists/musicians/
percussionists have built a sound and stage show that leaves each city it ventures to with a lasting impression of just how diverse a rock concert can be. The band prides itself on their value of a production with entertainment and the ability to appeal to future fans who otherwise may never indulge in such a genre, while still holding on to those aggressive music enthusiasts in the front row of each show.
While they have been present and active for many years, a giant turning point for Downfall 2012 was teaming up with producer, engineer and video-grapher Jim Finley, who assisted in the creation and development of the music and video to “Everyman for Himself” a record initially broken into pieces and released as EPs in 2012-2014 (and is in the process of being compiled along with the remaining unreleased material to create one cohesive full length record/story to be released in mid 2016). The team has also invited Houston graphic artist A.Tomic to compliment their music with a conceptual visual and mini comic books which accompany each release. The singles “Divinity”, “Heckler”, and “Face to face” are in rotation on a number of FM and Internet radio stations, and have corresponding conceptual music videos.
Downfall 2012 opened 2015 by jumping on the “Art Saves” West Coast tour headlined by OTEP. They joined OTEP again in the summer (June-July) on the “Art of Fury Tour”. The band has also shared the stage with: Limp Bizkit, Hollywood Undead, Ice Cube, The Offspring, Hed pe, Powerman 5000, Filter, Nothing More, Twisted Sister, Alice Cooper, ICP, and many more. In 2016 the band is set to do a Spring run with AVATAR along with several headlining dates.
Houston’s leading rock station 94.5 the Buzz has awarded the band multiple “Texas Buzz Awards” in the span of recent years including “Band of the year”, “Best live performance”, “Best Bass” and Best Drummer.
