LATEST NEWS – August 2019
Oasis, Stone Roses, The Verve, Cast, Supergrass… these bands have sold one or two records more than us, but now we have all recorded in the same place – the brilliantly vibey Sawmills Studio near Fowey in Cornwall. Tony, Paul and Steve went down and thought it might be fun to go with the 90s feel and record a couple of the songs we were playing as Shortlist over 20 years ago. So, with the tireless Tom Joyce overseeing proceedings, we recorded Magnificent Distraction and Swings and Roundabouts in a 14-hour session using some amazing vintage gear. So far we have only the monitor mixes but finished versions will be posted in September.
LATEST NEWS – June 2019
We’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend at the Wychwood Festival in Cheltenham. A great family festival with some amazing live acts throughout – we danced late into Saturday evening to a timeless ABC set!
We had the great privilege of opening proceedings in the Hobgoblin tent at lunchtime on Sunday and with a perfectly timed deluge of rain we had a fantastic audience for the show!
We’ll share some of the live recordings very soon – but in the meantime enjoy some of the photos. Thanks again to the Wychwood team for letting us play and for running such a friendly festival!

October 2018, Faces Fall Play Live…
Faces Fall returned to the stage in October 2018 after 7 years away, to join the birthday celebrations of one our greatest supporters. Despite a bout of flu significantly reducing Steve’s vocal powers, the band treated the revellers to a selection of new tracks, old favourites and party covers.
The buzz of returning to the stage has the got the band itching to play more, so watch this site for news on the next gig….
No official live recording was made on the night (though we’ve seen some bootleg videos!) so we’ve added a few live tracks to the site from recent rehearsals to give you the feel for the live facesfall sound.
