Interview: As December Falls

As December Falls are a four-piece female-fronted rock band from Nottingham. The band are: Bethany Curtis (Vocals), Ande Hunter (Guitar/Vocals), Timmy Francis (Bass), and Lukas James (Drums).

The band formed in 2013 and spent six months writing and recording their debut EP A Home Inside Your Head, which was released in November 2014. I recently talked to As December Falls ahead of the release of their new single Capture.

How did you first become interested in music?

Ande: I really discovered guitar through my cousin Sam when I was 14 and living in Spain. I had an old, beaten-up classical guitar which he tuned and started playing the riff to Can't Stop on. It was crazy for me to see him recreate some of my favourite songs and he taught me the first couple of riffs I ever learnt.

Timmy: I was 14 and into a lot of pop-punk music. It was a Blink-182 song where Travis and Mark just lock in on this breakdown and it sounds amazing. I saved up, bought my first bass and I've never stopped playing since.

How did the band come about? 

Timmy knew Lukas from college and was introduced to Bethany through a friend and they started the band together. Ande and Timmy grew up playing in rock bands in Nottingham and played many gigs together whilst in other bands. When the EP was being written and the studio was booked, Timmy asked Ande if he would write and session lead guitar parts in the studio if they couldn't find a more permanent member, since Ande was in another band at the time. As soon as Ande heard the demos, he decided to commit as a permanent member.
