We Are the Fallen was an American-Irish gothic metal band consisting of former American Idol contestant Carly Smithson, Marty O'Brien and former Evanescence members Ben Moody, John LeCompt, and Rocky Gray. The band's name is an allusion to Evanescence's 2003 album, Fallen, which has resulted in criticism for their similar style to Evanescence. In a Los Angeles Times interview, co-founder of Evanescence, Ben Moody, said that We Are the Fallen differs from Evanescence in that "everyone is equal" and that it has "more energy than Evanescence could ever muster." He also stated, "We cannot try to be who we are. If there is some similarity in sound, it's because that genre was created by us."
Profile Bio Text
We Are the Fallen is an American rock band that was formed in 2009. It consists of former American Idol contestant Carly Smithson on vocals, Marty O’Brien on bass, former Evanescence members Ben Moody and John LeCompt on guitar, as well as Rocky Gray on drums. In several interviews, the band revealed that the band’s name was created by singer songwriter Hana Pestle, Moody’s girlfriend and friend of the band, in reference to the band member’s musical pasts. Marty O’Brien has been quoted as saying, “I feel that each member was brought into this band because of past situations that either fell apart, disbanded, or musical projects we had going on that didn’t work out the way we had hoped. I feel like we are somewhat of a band of misfits coming together to create something special that we could not have created individually.”
