Fallon (1994-present) is a Thrash Metal band from Chico, California, USA.
hus far Fallon has not ever left the tri-state area of California, Nevada and Hawaii, but this Northern California act managed to make a name for themselves around the world in the underground metal scene. Fallon began its life with vocalist Gary St. Pierre (ex-Vicious Rumours) but after two years some skeletons broke free from his closet and he was forced to make his exit, with bassist and vocalist Frank Bedene (a.k.a. Frankie Swa) taking over. With Steve Lujan and Jimmy James Scott taking over both guitar rolls, and Paz Wheems later (after the debut) being recruited for drums the band commenced touring with the likes of Testament, Napalm Death, Forbidden, At The Gates, Malevolent Creation, Flotsam And Jetsam, Savatage and Sacred Reich over the preceding years; the latter actually approaching the band after their set and asking for a CD and who they were signed with, only to be surprised to discover they weren't signed at the time. Indeed, in 1997 their debut self-titled EP album, Fallon, was released. Although Paz Wheems was the drummer in the band later recruited, he would not be listed on the debut EP; no drummer was credited.
In 2004 it was announce that Fallon was going to try again with a new album with the latest addition to the band, drummer Ken Bedene. The album, Back from the Dead, would be short turned as a demo; the band has not recorded since.
