Who We Are & What We're up To

Grey Skies Fallen has been kicking around in one way or another since 1997, and has never had financial backing from any record label over the years.

Lately though, we have been better at getting material recorded, having released Along Came Life in 2010, and Introspective in 2012. Both of these EP's were digital releases and offered free of charge (along with all of our other albums) on our website.  

The Many Sides of Truth will mark our 6th release. However, this time we plan on having a proper physical release to go along with our digital one. CD AND VINYL will be pressed in limited quantities. Stunning artwork will again be provided by Travis Smith.  

 

What We Need & What You Get

Our goal is to raise $5,000. With that money, we will book 10 studio sessions, and have enough left to press vinyl and CDs.

  • The 10 studio sessions should cover tracking and mixing. We will once again be working with our friend Keith Moore, who has recorded all of our stuff since 2006's Two Way Mirror album.
  • The remainder of the money will be spent pressing CDs as well as very special vinyl. This will be our first foray into the world of vinyl.
  • As you will see below, we are offering some cool perks, spanning the length of our band's history. Some LONG out-of-print CDs are being offered, as well as some current merch like our new shirt. Maybe you'd like us to play a private show at your house?! This can be arranged. You can also come hang out at a rehearsal, sit in on a studio session, or even better, sit in on a studio session and actually RECORD on a part of the album. 

The Result

As a band that's been doing it the DIY way for over 15 years, and one who hasn't released a physical album since 2006, we feel that by releasing The Many Sides of Truth on both CD and vinyl, we will announce our re-entry to the metal scene. We plan on making a statement, in both the music and the presentation.

    Eve of Mourning demo tape

    Back in 1996, the band was in its infancy. We were a three-piece going by the name of Eve of Mourning. Turned out there was another band called Eve of Mourning, so we changed the name. "A Dark Serenade" was the first release for the band that would become Grey Skies Fallen. Only 300 were pressed. One box remains tucked away in an attic. Own this rare recording, which featured odd drumming, and a putrid violin player. A shaky start, to say the least. You will also receive the new album on CD.
