The metalcore contingent of All Else Fails is proud to announce the official release of their third recording "The Oracle, What Was, Is And Could Have Been" on August 19, 2011 on Suicidal Bride Records.
The epic twelve track album by the St. Albert, AB based band, explores their most extraordinary sound to date. Ranging in themes from the apocalypse (This World In Flames, Rebirth) to drug abuse (Fallen), to religious persecution (Monster Eats The Pilot), to being haunted by the sins of one's past (The House At The End of The World), All Else Fails delivers a stunning and compelling release of aggressive rich metalcore to the masses.
"We are extremely excited and proud of the work we have done on our upcoming full length album "The Oracle: What Was, Is and Could Have Been". It's our darkest, heaviest, deepest and ultimately, most beautiful album thus far. I'd happily put a no money back guarantee on that." comments AEF vocalist/ guitarist Barrett Klesko.
"The Oracle, What Was, Is and Could Have Been" is a follow up to their 2009 "Against The Darkening of The Sky" and can be pre-ordered on Bandcamp and will be available on iTunes, various online stores and select music stores across Canada.

About: Socially conscious, lyrically poetic, rife with apocalyptic symbolism; All Else Fails is poised to take our world by storm. Playing an aggressively dark blend of Punk, Metal, and Rock, this well established Edmonton based band breaks the traditional ideals of their genre by producing music infused with experimental elements, incorporating Classical music, Electronica influenced synth lines, and spoken word sampling. This is metal for a new audience, one that’s ready for what’s beyond the ordinary.
Their inspired high-energy live show sets them apart from their peers, often drawing comparisons to The Holly Springs Disaster and Killswitch Engage.
The band’s unique sound has won them acclamation and fans from across Canada and around the globe. Using intricate guitar riffs and meaningful lyrics delivered with powerful vocals, they draw their listeners in, and then blast them with full frontal force!
The band has played with major touring acts such as Fear Factory, City of Fire, 3 Inches of Blood, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin, as well as earning a spot playing the Ernie Ball stage on the 2009 Vans Warped Tour that featured Bad Religion, Alexisonfire, NOFX, Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, and more.
On the local circuit via their indie label Suicidal Bride Records, All Else Fails frequently shares the stage with some of Canada’s top touring indie acts such as Ninjaspy, Endast, Quartered, Stella, Dead Jesus, Fattooth, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Submerge the Sky, Without Mercy, and more.
AEF have several tours under their belt including a 2009 Cross Canada tour, western Canada in June of 2010, and coast to coast Canadian tour again in September of 2010 which saw them placed on not just one showcase at Indie Week in Toronto, but so impressing organizers of the event that they received an invitation to play a second showcase that week.
2011 is a year full of promise for the band with an aggressive plan to increase touring, building on the wave of new fans that were created on previous tours, as well as new recordings and a music video. All Else Fails will be reaching beyond borders this year, ready to set the world in flames!
