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 Frank Bedene (a.k.a. Frankie Swa) taking over the vocals. With Steve Lujan and Jimmy James Scott taking over both guitar rolls, and Bene Tores later 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 album, Fallon, was released with Frankie Swa on bass, while Paz Wheems played the drums.
In 2004 it was announce that Fallon was going to try again with a new album with the returning Swa on both bass and vocals, Lujan and Scott on guitars, and the latest addition to the band, drummer Ken Bedene.
