Dead Man Fall - Behind the Wall

  • BEHIND THE WALL 14 Melville Street Falkirk, Scotland, FK1 1HZ United Kingdom (map)


Dead Man Fall formed at the tail end of 2012 and by 2014 they became the first unsigned Scottish band to score a number 1 on U.S iTunes.

After a denied U.S Visa prevented them from appearing on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in Los Angeles due to them being relatively unknown, they went on to gain recognition across the globe after their 3rd single  'Bang Your Drum' was used on the chat show host's final show with a multitude of A-List celebrities such as Quentin Tarantino, Matthew McConaughey, Samuel L Jackson and Desmond Tutu lip syncing in a video homage to the bands original video.  Bang Your Drum reached Number 1 on both the American iTunes Rock Chart and Amazon Download Charts.

The band now hope to overcome the original Visa problems and make the belated trip to the US in 2017 and embark on a tour across several states where they have had a devoted American following since the Late Late show exposure.


Since the last Falkirk appearance the band have released brilliant single Calexico which was accompanied by a stunning fluorescent Day of the Dead inspired video which had over 20,000 plays in two days on Facebook.  

Dead Man Fall have also played two played two live Sessions on BBC Radio Scotland, sold out Glasgow’s famous King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in a matter of weeks, and last year the band were selected to be one of the 16 unsigned acts to perform on the iconic Tbreak stage at Scotland’s biggest music festival, T in the Park with band managing to pull one of the tent’s biggest crowds of the day despite being up against headline acts Kasabian, Sam Smith and Fatboy Slim.

At the end of last year DMF moved up to headline a packed out Oran Mor in December with the aforementioned chat show host Craig Ferguson joining the band on stage for a live rendition of the song that brought their paths together.
