When I asked guitarist STUART GREEN of the band CRAWL what he wanted people to come away with after they listened to their new EP ANTICIPATE THE FALL he told me he wanted people to know that a Canadian band can rock and that a bunch of guys in their forties can rock. Being a year away from the big 4-0 myself I definitely feel like I'm rooting for the home team by getting behind a rather fine collection of songs that boast the kind of big melodic hard rock that has sustained me and others in my age bracket for all of these years. You see, ANTICIPATE THE FALL is more than just a mere "new release". It's a comeback. The band was formed in 1992 and earned a measure of success in Canada with two CDs - 300 YARDS OF FACE and FEED - both of which generated singles and music videos that earned accolades form the MUCH MUSIC ViDEO AWARDS in the mid nineties. In 2013, three quarters of the band reunited for a benefit show and the energy felt on stage has now found it's way onto this exciting new album with new front man MICHAEL DAVID WOLF and some electrifying material such as the bombastic first single RISE.
