"THE FIRST HOT TIP FOR 2002...fat melodic riffing and heroically sung vocals...perfectly
titled for an eral of rebuilding, this is a great rock record for and about
--David Fricke, ROLLING STONE, Feb. 14, 2002
"...[A] rocking sound so fresh and so new it's as though 'hair' and 'nu' are
concepts given life only by the warped imagination of an Orwellian fiction
writer. Watching CWTF it feels like the era that spawned the original rock
beast has bridged over the last two and a half decades to now, harvesting from
the best bits along the way, and created this stirring medern old school

The Mean Fiddler, London, UK. Oct. 3, 2002 www.sruffster.co.uk
"I first heard CWTF last March when they opened for Jerry Cantrell in my old
home of Houston, TX (at the Engine Room in 2001)...Never have I actually
thought an opening band blew away the headliner until this night."
-- Mark Clausen, THE DARK ARCHIVES
"Comes With the Fall -- Fresh off spending the better part of 2002 not only
opening for Jerry Cantrell, but doubling as his backing band, Comes With the
Fall are poised to make their own mark. This trio, based in L.A. by way of
Atlanta, are not afraid to rock. They'll give you Alice In Chains heaviness
with Led Zeppelin power, and try something unheard of in music today: guitar
solos, loud choruses and a kick in the face not felt this hard since Seattle in
--Michael Christopher, Pop Matters— 31 December 2002
GRAND AND TIMELESS...a thoroughly unique collision of Alice In Chains,
Soundgarden, King's X, Manic Street Preachers, Freddie Mercury, Thom Yorke, and
Lenny Kravitz... thick, tribal, almost stoner-ish riffs through sparkly
production and an alternative sense of song smarts that should have these guys
all over the radio... Comes With The Fall is true electric crackly power-trio

If these cats catch fire, then rock radio is saved. Rise and join the fallen,

"These guys are the future."
--Jerry Cantrell speaking to the Reuters World News Service,
The first band I actually saw was Comes With the Fall. They were starting just
as I walked in, the place was packed and I had to climb shoulders just to see
what they looked like…. the music is good, really heavy lots of old school
screaming, heavy guitars, and pounding bass….
