Five Years Of Fall

Believe it or not – Shall Not Fall is nearly five years old! In December of 2018 we will officially have our fifth birthday. It was in late 2013  when fate brought together Zac, Leonidas and Mark  who quickly decided to start writing and recording their own brand of indie metal tunes. Now five years later, after many songs were written, and many gigs played there is no looking back.

In five years we have yet to post any live video footage. Well that is soon to change. We are working on uploading previously unseen video footage for anyone who missed seeing Shall Not Fall play live (or those who want to relive the experience). We also have some archived footage that may be released down the road.  It is our hope to keep the videos coming on a regular basis. So if you never managed to see us live yet, you will get the chance at Shall Not in the near future.

Thanksgiving is coming up fast here in Canada. We are thankful for the music and each other. We hope you will enjoy your holiday with friends and family….and metal!





The District of Metal

Shall Not Fall returns to Guelph MAY 25TH!

We are very happy to be invited back to  Dstrct night club (10 Wyndham st.N Guelph, Ontario).


It will be a massive night of metal as KRONIKNOISE PROMOTIONS has SNF playing with 3 American metal bands :

Filth (North Carolina)
Insvrgence (Texas)
and Deadland (Florida)

These guys are out there pounding metal hard on the road and we are happy to join them at the best metal venue in Guelph!

This is an all ages/licensed show –

Doors open at 9pm

$10 dollar cover


For those of you who missed us back in March – there is a new song in the set to check out. See it live and let us know what you think.

Thanks to Dstrct and Kroniknoise Promotions for keeping live metal alive and kicking in the Guelph area!

Hope to see you there!

Marching On

Shall Not Fall had a blast at this year’s Gain Music and Arts Festival. Big Thanks to Nik Wever and the two venues – Jimmy Jazz and the Ebar for having us.  Also a huge shout out to the friends, family and fans for kicking our asses as hard as we kicked theirs!

We cannot forget the great bands we shared the stage with on March 10th:  Seas (Toronto) at the early acoustic show and Death Note Silence (on tour from Trois- Rivieres, Quebec) and Throne To The Wolves (Toronto).





If you missed seeing us at

The Gain Music and Arts Festival 2018 you truly missed some special shows. We would have no problems with returning in 2019 and doing it all over again…

Eighteen ….and I like it!

Happy 2018!

Zac, Mark and Leonidas would like to wish you all a very happy new year.



Do we have some news to kick off 2018? We sure do!

Shall Not Fall has two shows lined up in March as part of the Gain Music & Arts Festival 2018!  Two different Guelph venues (that we have not played yet) will host SNF: Jimmy Jazz  (March 10th @ 1030 pm) for a heavy show AND the eBAR for an acoustic set in the afternoon of the same day(March 10th) – 2pm start.

Shall Not Fall also has a new track brewing behind the scenes. During our down time we have been adding to our original repertoire.  So if you haven’t seen Shall Not Fall for a while – you may get to hear a brand new song at one of these upcoming dates!

In case you didn’t hear – Shall Not Fall has a limited run of T – shirts available.  If you would like one, contact us here or come out to one of our live shows.








Thanks for all the support!  We can’t wait to kick some ass in Guelph again very soon!

August Explosion

Shall Not Fall has some news to share:


We have been selected as the Gain Music Artist of the Month for August.  Along with  that honor is a headlining spot at the popular Guelph venue called  Dstrct.

The show is on Friday August 25th and marks  the three year anniversary of the premiere Guelph club for live music. This will be the first time playing  Dstrct for Shall Not Fall. It is a venue that has been on our “must play” list from very early on in our development.

The full line up for the night is:

Shall Not Fall // Romancer // GOLD FINCH // Corbin Giroux || 9pm doors.

Dstrct is located in downtown Guelph at 10 Wyndham st.

We had a “secret” show recently at another local venue The Red Brick Cafe where we tested some as yet unreleased material in a casual, unplugged format. The Red Brick Cafe is a very cool place that supports live music and artists and we were treated very well there! Check them out at 8 Douglas st. Guelph!


This was actually the third such show for Zac this year as he continues to stretch his wings and bring SNF music wherever he can! Zac can bring the heavy – unplugged, solo, duo he does it all!


And finally, special thanks goes out to Zack Feenstra for his photographic expertise.  His work kicks ass and is our new main image on this site.

Hey people!

We had a great show last month in Toronto – our first one there.  We met a bunch of amazing heavy bands and were very happy with the venue and sound guy.  You don’t always luck out that way when playing a new venue for the first time.  The weather was also very warm and so the load in/ drive to the show went without a hitch.

In other news Shall Not Fall  have a brand new song soon to be slipping into our regular song rotation.  We think it will be a nice addition to  our live shows in 2017.  There could be a clue buried in this post somewhere, but for now we are keeping the song details to ourselves.    

We have a window in our live show schedule  right now so we are concentrating on material that has been in development behind the scenes from last year.  There is definitely no shortage of material with this band.  Some remixing will also be  happening to bring our earliest songs a little more in line with our current sound sonically.  So if things seem a little quiet – trust us when we say we are always making a lot of noise behind the scenes.

We want to keep bringing our music to you live! If you are in need of a heavy supporting act in GTA/K-W/London/Brantford/Hamiltion area contact us!




January 2017

Happy New Year!

Looks like SNF safely survived 2016.

Bring on the new year and a new show right out of the gate!  On Friday January 20th we will be playing The Smiling Buddha in Toronto (961 College street). Tickets are 10.00 and doors are at 8:00pm.  Mulitiple heavy bands will be on the bill – so you should get a lot of bang for your buck.

We want to keep the shows coming in 2017 and hopefully we can get to your neck of the woods. There are a lot of places we’d like to play this year – so if you are another band looking for some support, we may just be your band!

Another new year with the same old message.  We write and perform original heavy music.  We want to kick ass on stage, whenever and however we can.  We want to always beat our previous best and we’d like to bring you along for the ride!

Hope to see you “out there”!
