These Four Walls

Bio

These Four Walls have achieved a lot in the last two and a half years. Since releasing their debut album Down Falls An Empire in September 2009, they have had two songs reach the Top 10 on the Rock Charts (Sweet December, Lay it Out), the album itself reached #22 on the Album charts, and also set a record for pre-orders on www.amplifier.co.nz, beating the previous record set by Fat Freddy’s Drop.

The band has supported international acts such as Disturbed, Nickelback, Karnivool and The Butterfly Effect; they’ve toured Australia and undertaken multiple headlining tours of New Zealand, consistently growing their fanbase.

And most impressively, they’ve done all of this as an unsigned, independent act. Their successes to date have been the result of hard work, a dedication to crafting great rock songs, and an impressive live show that incorporates their powerful, heavy riffing with soaring melodies and a tight, energetic performance.

In October 2011, These Four Walls started recording their second full-length album, travelling to Queensland to work with producer Matt Bartlem (Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect) at Loose Stones Studios. The band spent 8 weeks both living and working at the 3-studio complex on the Gold Coast, before sending the tracks down to Melbourne to be mixed by veteran engineer Forrester Savell
(Karnivool, Birds of Tokyo, I Am Giant).

The first single ‘Passenger’ was recently released in New Zealand, where it debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes rock chart. The album, entitled Living to Write the End will be released on 12 October 2012

Band Members:
Steve Gibb (vocals, guitar)

These Four Walls Release Highly Anticipated Debut Album
Posted: Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:38 pm
THESE FOUR WALLS RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM ‘DOWN FALLS AN EMPIRE’ MONDAY 14 SEPTEMBER

The wait is over for fans of Auckland’s THESE FOUR WALLS, as the band release their debut album Down Falls An Empire on Monday 14 September. The musical chemistry and song writing talents of guitarist Gray Vickers and vocalist Steve Gibb are undeniable, and have come together to create a bold, artistic statement from the band.

Down Falls An Empire is musically diverse in its rock sensibilities, yet thematically consistent, taking the listener on a journey and presenting itself as a single piece of art as opposed to just a collection of songs. Ambitious for a debut album, the songs range in style from powerful guitar-driven anthems to melodic and beautiful passages, but thoughout the band retain their individuality and identity.

THESE FOUR WALLS began pre-production for Down Falls An Empire in January with Chris Van De Geer (Stellar*, Solstate, Revolver) and commenced recording in May of this year with both Chris and producer/engineer Andrew Buckton (The D4, Steriogram, Midnight Youth).

The foundations of the band began in 2007 with their first single ‘Walk Away’. The track gradually built momentum on commercial radio, breaking into the NZ Top 40, and featured on The Rock’s Top 30 for 12 weeks. In 2008, ‘Walk Away’ was featured in The Rock’s ‘Rock 1000 Countdown’ as the only song by an unsigned artist. The band’s next single releases, ‘Under The Shadows’ and ‘Fly Home’ were equally successful, also both breaking into the Top 40 Chart. Current single ‘Sweet December’ is already making an impact on radio stations nationwide and set to follow suit of its predecessors.

THESE FOUR WALLS have been in high demand, and rightfully so. The band’s tight, heavy and energetic live performances have caught the attention of hundreds of music fans everywhere, leading the band being selected to showcase their new material at the Big Sound 09 music industry summit - one of the most respected and fastest growing music business events in the Asia Pacific region - in Brisbane later this month. THESE FOUR WALLS are also lined up to support international acts The Airbourne Toxic Event in Brisbane, plus Karnivool in Auckland in September. An extensive national tour is also scheduled later this year leading into a busy festival circuit over summer.

The Walls Fall Down...
Posted: Wed Feb 22, 2006 12:55 pm
Statement made earlier today by Gray Vickers from These Four Walls to thier myspace supporters:

These Four Walls wishes to advise that the band has broken up to allow individual members to pursue new ventures.

The band would like to thank all supporters, fellow musicians and people in the music industry for their outstanding support and encouragement over the last 15 months.

It is a sad loss for the local NZ music scene - These Four Walls are an exceptional group of musicians and we wish nothing but all the best on thier seperate musical ventures...
