1. How you guys doin? How's the search for a guitarist coming along?

Were doing good man, We just picked up a guitarist named Chuck who's in a band called Minus The Head. Were working with him currently. Our other guitarist Mike's last show is in September. So were now looking for someone to take his place and have a couple try outs set up

2. You guys played with a ton of known acts such as Parkway Drive and Gwen Stacy, what is the craziest show you guys played and what happened?

Probably the craziest show was Thrash and Burn w/ Darkest Hour, and Parkway Drive. That was a lot of fun. We played during Arsis on a different stage and we still had a good amount of people watching us even tho Arsis is way better then us haha.

3. You guys have upcoming shows with Whitechapel, Emmure and Ligiea, you guys looking forward to those shows?

Hell yeah! Definitely. These shows are gonna be intense. Hopefully we'll gain a lot more of a fan base in our area.

4. How has the response to the new EP been? You guys working on any new material?

The EP only had 4 songs on it. Were working now on writing new material and training our new guitarist and seeking another guitarist. So we have a lot on our plate right now. We'll be taking the entire month of November off to write new music and get another guitarist. Hopefully in December we'll do a short Winter tour.

5. Maryland is known for its musical talent, what is the local scene like there in Fredrick, MD?

Honestly, the scene in Frederick isn't very big on Metal. The majority of bands are Punk, Folk, or Indie music. I mean we still have some what of a Metal scene and kids come out and support it but its not nearly as big as the scene could be.

6. If you could tour with three bands who would they be?

Thats a pretty tough question.I'd go with The Acacia Strain, All Shall Perish, and ABACABB

7. What are your thoughts on illegal music downloading?

Personally I think downloading an album here and there before it comes out is alright but make sure you actually buy the album when it comes out and support the band.

8. What is your favorite song to play live and why?

Guillotine because we all contributed to writing that song and I feel its our most brutal song we have wrote so far.

9. What are you currently listening to?

I'm really into the new Acacia Strain,All Shall Perish, and The Faceless albums. They're so sick! Make sure you buy them.

10. What's next for As The Kingdom Falls?

Hopefully once we get our guitar situation figured out we'll keep playing shows and record our debut album and tour as often as we can. Keep your eyes open for us.
