Rising from the ashes of alt-rock band The Death Notes in 2017, Jamie and Mike (also a member of In Isolation) started Hurtsfall. After a lengthy search they found Sam (formerly of Gossamer Veil)
Based in Nottingham, the ancestral home of Lord Byron, they share his penchant for gothic romantic verses. Hurtsfall have a unique approach: with no guitars, keyboards and Bass VI build a rich soundscape as a foundation for Sam’s distinctive theatrical delivery.
Down The Front Media describe them as "Like a fine wine...flavours are subtle with hints of The Damned, David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Host-era Paradise Lost"
A post-punk band with synth-pop sensibilities, Hurtsfall recall the essence of your favourites with a genre-spanning modern twist.
In 2019 they released debut single Lucid and sophomore track Calling Out to rave reviews.
No stranger to live performances, Hurtsfall have built a reputation for putting on a serious show. Sharing the stage with Strange Circuits (the first act signed to the legendary industrial label, Wax Trax! Records) and playing venues nationwide.
2020 marked a string of media appearances for the band. They released live fan favourite track 12 Long Years along with their first music video for Revelator featured on Post-Punk.com.
Hurtsfall then featured in German alternative bible Sonic Seducer, a fitting end to the year as they sail ahead keeping the spirit of goth shining bright, and establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
