All Else Fails, the loud, heavy, lyrically conscious metal band that recently won Metal Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards are proud to announce another nomination for Metal/Hard Music Recording of the Year for their latest EP 'Fucktropolis' at this year's upcoming 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards.
Vocalist / guitarist Barrett Klesko comments:
"We were really surprised by the nomination for the WCMA's but really proud at the same time, we put a lot into Fucktropolis and it's great to have the Canadian music industry recognize that. We can't wait to play the very first Tail Creek Music fest this year, the line up is phenomenal... we have a really sweet spot on the second stage between Killswitch and Korn. And to be a part of Loud as Hell Metal fest again this year is great! We'll be sharing the stage with some killer metal bands like Protest, Titan's Eve, West of Hell and so many more. It's good to be getting out there and hitting the stage again."
