"Ten Count Fall"...."What does that mean exactly?"
We cant tell you how many times we have heard that over the years so lets just get it out of the way right now. Its the name of our band! Do what you will with it! I mean, after working 40 hours a week in the same place for years, getting the same stupid questions over and over, who wouldnt get a little bit of angst built up? Thats where the music comes inâ¦We pour our hearts into the sound we make. Its our release from the world, the energy we all look for but find it so hard to use everyday, pure enjoyment! Havent heard of it yet huh? You willâ¦ Weve been leaving people saying,"Who the fuck are THOSE GUYS!?! HOLY SHIT!
All of these questions started back in 2000 when the noise created by Pat Rishel, Jay Iorio, Jason Kotheimer, and Chris Warden started coming out of the basement and fast. The then 14 year old kids started playing out and recording as soon as they deemed time for the craziness to ensue! A few years into it we got some opening spots for many national touring acts and kept working on the sound and playing as much as people would let a few young punk kids.
Soon enough us kids grew up and started moving this thing on the road ASAP! Playing battles of the bands and such as all young bands do and even winning some but most importantly, winning over peoples ears and eyes. They just couldnt believe what they were seeing! As the intensity grew as did decisions of what to do with the music after they finished high school. In 2003, then frontman Chris Warden decided to part ways with the guys and go to school to study film at Toledo U. Leaving the guys without a frontman, we turned to Pats brother, R.J. Rishel, who had been playing in touring bands for years before joining the band as another guitar player and split the singing duties with Pat. As soon as he joined the ship, we set sail on a crash course or writing, practicing, playing shows and making sure that the intensity always led to a damn good time. Since 2003 we have put out two EPs and 2 LPs, toured the East Coast and Midwest plenty of times, played Vans Warped Tour, Journeys Backyard BBQ and other festivals.
Keep your eyes and ears open ladies and gentlemen, TEN COUNT FALL is here to have a good time! Fellas bring your game face and ladies leave your dudes at home! The party nation has arrivedâ¦
