Fallzone (formerly Seven Wiser) is a four-piece alternative rock band from New York, New York.

History[edit]

As Seven Wiser[edit]

Seven Wiser was founded in 2002 by producer/songwriter Sandy Thomas, Andrew Sbarra, and frontman Jon Santos who, at the time, used to record demos at a local studio.[1] They were signed to Wind-up Records, in which the band released their debut self-titled album in June 2004. According to Sound Scan, Seven Wiser has been able to sound scan 10,000 copies of their debut album in the few months with the label. Wind-Up dropped the band later that same year.[2]

The band signed up with Crash Records, around the time the band has finished their second album Stronger in 2007.[3] The album was released for download on March 25, 2008. The band was dropped from the label two days later.[4] The band subsequently broke up in August 2008, because of musical differences, difficulty booking gigs, and failed record deals.[5] After the break-up, vocalist Jon Santos pursued a solo career and re-released "Stronger" on October 2008, excluding the track "This Time" in favor of a new song, "Losing Grip" and includes a piano mix of the title track "Stronger".

As Fallzone[edit]

In early 2009, the band formed back together under the new name "Fallzone".[6] The album "Stronger", which was previously issued twice, was once again re-released under the new band name on April 2009, featuring a new single, "Never Gonna Be Alone".

The second album with the Fallzone name, The Long Road, was released June 2011.
