We Are the Fallen


There will be no rest for former season seven 'American Idol' breakout star Carly Smithson and her band of merry metal brothers in We Are the Fallen, who are busy promoting their debut, 'Tear the World Down.' They even stopped by our office for a ''Creep Show' episode a few weeks ago, so watch it to familiarize yourself with the band if you've not already done so.

The band features ex-members of Evanescence, namely guitarist Ben Moody, who went on to co-write smashes for Daughtry, as well as Kelly Clarkson -- there goes that 'Idol' connection again. Smithson has left the pop world behind in favor of rock 'n' roll, and really, who could blame her? They've joined forces and after a slate of European festival dates, they will return to the U.S. for a jaunt alongside Saving Abel, bringing their female-fronted rock 'n' roll force to the masses yet again.
