Dave Sanders is the drummer and one of the founding members of UK rockers Falling Red

Falling Red are a four piece fist-pumping, high octane Rock band from North England whose live performances have earned them a reputation as ‘One of the best the UK has to offer’ – Kerrang! Magazine. With passion and enthusiasm, Falling Red has developed their own recognizable sound while writing dynamic anthems for a new generation. The band bring a bolstered attitude to today’s Rock scene.
Falling Red formed in the Cumbrian border town of Carlisle in 2006. Born of a passion for Stadium Rock bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Metallica & Iron Maiden, the band developed their own style & began writing their own material. Wanting to make their mark, the band recorded the self-produced Demo CD ‘If You Ain’t Down With The Rock…’ in 2007 to sell at gigs.

The band branched out & began gigging the length a breadth of the UK & released debut album ‘Shake The Faith’ in March 2010 which received critical acclaim throughout the Rock Press. After being hailed as ‘the heirs apparent to the Mötley Crüe Kings Of Sleaze throne’ – an unexpected fan of the band was Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) who particularly liked the track ‘Out Of Control’, giving it ample airtime on his BBC 6 Rock Show. Other DJs quick to hail the band as a breath of fresh air & a great emerging talent was Jonny Doom (Kerrang! Radio), Malcom Dome (TotalRock Radio) & DJ Beerman (TopRockRadio).

The band hit the road to promote the album, playing hundreds of their own shows alongside tours with Sebastian Bach, Black Spiders, Magnum, GUN, Dave Evans (original AC/DC vocalist), Dirty Penny, Tigertailz & many others. Branching into Europe soon followed with memorable headline dates in Norway & Belgium.
Falling Red released ‘Hasta La Victoria Siempre!’ on April 2011.
