Poets Of The Fall - Thekla - 10.10.18

Poets of the Fall

Finnish rockers Poets of the Fall - singer Marko, guitarist Olli and
keyboardist Captain - started out their musical adventure from scratch in 2003. Marko sold everything he had to invest in pursuing the love of his life, music, with his buddies Olli and Captain. He moved into his

parents’ basement, when he couldn't keep a place of his own any longer. The guys then built a little studio of their own in Captain's living room for the recording and producing sessions, and kept an office in Olli's beat up old car. The result of the recording sessions was a blend of pop, rock, metal and industrial sounds. Later the guys were joined by guitarist Jaska, bassist Jani and drummer Jari.

The band's first single was Late Goodbye, written for the acclaimed
computer game Max Payne 2. Reaching millions of people through the game, the song earned the guys international recognition and the first prize at the G.A.N.G. Awards in 2004.

Their debut album Signs of Life went straight to #1 on the Finnish album chart in January 2005, and stayed on the chart for over a year. The next album Carnival of Rust, released in April 2006, also hit the number one spot on its first week, with the debut album still on the official Top 40 chart. To date, both albums have sold platinum in Finland. The third album Revolution Roulette was released in March 2008. It also took the first place on the album chart, and broke the gold record limit in just a couple of weeks after its release. The fourth album Twilight Theater, released in March 2010, sold gold in one week, and made Finnish chart
history by giving the band four number one places with their first four
albums. 2011 saw the release of the first song and video compilation
Alchemy Vol. 1, and the fifth studio album Temple of Thought hit the
stores in March 2012. The band's first live release Live in Moscow was released on DVD in 2013, and the next album Jealous Gods in
September 2014, reaching the #1 spot on the album chart.

The band’s next and so far latest album, Clearview, released in 2016, was produced together with the acclaimed producer Stefan Boman at Park Studios, Stockholm. The successful release of the album, reaching top ten positions on numerous international charts, was followed by a tour running until the end of 2017, including shows in India, UK, and Middle Europe.

2018 sees the Poets returning to the studio to work on new material for their upcoming album planned to be released later this year. The first single and video from the album, False Kings, was released in January 2018. The beginning of the year will also keep the band busy and on the road, as they will be heading on their 15th anniversary tour.

The singles and videos released from the albums have received lots of media coverage, hundreds of millions of video views, and extensive airtime on radios worldwide. The song Carnival of Rust was the most played Finnish song in 2006, and singles like Dreaming Wide Awake and Cradled in Love have spent several weeks among the top songs on national radio and TV. The blockbuster video games Alan Wake and Alan Wake's American Nightmare featured songs from Twilight Theater and Temple of Thought, as well as completely new songs, performed as the in-game band Old Gods of Asgard.
