  1. Yay to Carly and the guys. Can’t wait for the album and tour. Both are going to be amazing!!!

  2. Awesome!! I can’t wait to hear new music from Carly. I think this band will put out some great stuff.

  3. Really intrigued by this project. I love Carly voice and this is the perfect fit for her.

  4. This is exactly what Carly wanted to end up doing, so here’s hoping this is a ginormous success.

  5. About time! I have been waiting so patiently for their album to drop. I am so happy for Carly. I loved her on season 7 and felt she got robbed. It should have been her and David A and David C in the top 3. I would have been happy if any of them won at the time. The David Cook concert was fantastic but I have to say when he brought Carly out it raised it to a new level. She sang great and David was amazing with the guitar. I would have liked a duet with these two. Maybe next time. :-)

  6. They just posted a snippet of a new song called Without You on their MySpace page. Check it out-sounds awesome!!! :

    Oops-here’s the link :

    Thank you so much for posting this song. I love the long snippet we got to hear. I think I like this song better the Bury me Alive. I also think it is more radio friendly. I so hope that WE are the Fallen does amazingly well. I hope this becomes the success That Carly deserves. She is awesome. IMHO

  8. I’m thrilled for Carly, she was my favorite back on S7 (along with Cookie), and while this is not my favorite kind of rock, but it fits her well and there’s a lot of potential for her band, I will definitely be getting that album, and if by any chance I can catch them live, I wouldn’t miss that concert for anything.

  9. Hmm, they are playing SONAR in Baltimore this month… will have to think about that one!
