Cupid Falls (Drive Away)

A few years ago, a dream to tour the world and make music was held close by Self-Control’s Ryan Botha. With strong determination, they rose to the top of Indonesia’s unsigned charts, gained recognition through various media outlets and in December 2008, opened for “Angels & Airwaves” in Singapore. Unfortunately, as time goes by, some things must come to an end.

With the dream still burning bright in Mid-March 2010, Ryan found himself in Perth, Western Australia. Collaborating with local musicians James White, Jim Garrett, Robin Winter and Dave Lee, they came together to create the lively and enthusiastic pop-punk hardcore band now known as “CUPIDFALLS”. Sharing the same dreams and drive to attain their goals, the band swiftly entered the studio and endured hours of hard practice whilst laying down various demo tracks. This however, was only the beginning of CUPIDFALLS.

The band has already performed numerous times at some of Perth’s leading venues such as “The Rocket Room”, “The Rosemount”, “Black Betty’s” and “Amplifier Bar”. Having also shared stages with popular national acts such as “I Am Villain”, “The Sunny Side Up” and “For Our Hero”, CUPIDFALLS definitely has what it takes to put on an electrifying performance and capture an audience.

“CUPIDFALLS started with burps and an incredibly enthusiastic entrance…They put on an incredible show…their bubbling enthusiasm was infectious and soon the whole floor was bouncing. Starting their set with little to no pit they finished it with one that covered the entire floor…”
– Jaz Walsh, (Oh Snap, Black Betty’s)

CUPIDFALLS were selected from over 700 bands from across Australia to be a part of the top 10 finalists in Nova FM’s, “I Am with the Band” competition. CUPIDFALLS were then aired daily on national television during prime time viewing and performed at Fremantle’s Prison for the competition’s showcase, which was covered a broadcast live on Nova 93.7Fm. Having been interviewed by Channel 11 and Nova Fm, CUPIDFALLS have made their debut on Australian Television and have built a national fan base.

On April 1st 2011, the guys made their way to Sydney, NSW, to commence recording their debut EP “Dancing in Distortion” with popular Engineer / Producer Sonny Truelove (Angelas Dish, Before Their Eyes) at STL Studios. The album was then mixed by Sonny and mastered by Troy Glessner (Anberlin, MXPX, Underoath, Aiden) of Spectre Studios in the USA. Since getting back to Perth, their single “Drive Away” has been aired on 89.7Fm (Anarchy on Air) for 3 consecutive weeks (still counting) and has received thousands of plays on various sites over the Internet.

CUPIDFALLS has come a long way in what has been little over a year since the band formed. This is a credit to the member’s individual successes as musicians in the local scene, and with their persistence and determination they hope to further their dreams while dropping into breakdowns and moving audiences with their infectious live performances.
