Philly Band Vs. The Fallen

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Philadelphia — Former members of Evanescence fronted by American Idol contestant Carly Smithson have changed their name from The Fallen to We Are the Fallen after being issued a “cease and desist” order from the Philadelphia based band The Fallen.

There are conflicting reports over which band “The Fallen” issued the cease and desist order. There is also a British rock band called The Fallen.

Wikipedia and the UK The Fallen’s Blog claim it is the English cover band that formed in 2005.

Radio station 104.5 and music news MOG report it is the Philadelphia, PA based, The Fallen, that started in late 2005.

Hmmm… it makes you wonder if the Philadelphia band and the UK band will write each other cease and desist orders?
