BIOGRAPHY

Matt was former member and lead singer with Dayfall - Dayfall were a 5 piece Original Rock Band based in Kent. Matt Dene is the songwriter. Matt formed Dayfall in 2004 because he wanted to get his music heard, as it was a little different from the norm. He writes all his songs on Cubase, and are keyboard based.

The songs were frequently likened to our influences, "a cross between 'Nine Inch Nails' and 'Depeche Mode'"

Artist Profile

How would you describe your sound and what are some of your influences?
Influences are Nine Inch Nails / Rammstein / Numan / Kraftwerk /Depeche\' Mode - Some of the songs I\'ve done are quite heavy but recently have been a little more up-tempo and chart friendly

It\'s a difficult one - A few years ago when I was in a band that was described as \"industrial\" I would have chosen Download - Now I am leaning towards the V Festival
Lager or Cider?
Cider
Who would you like to support?
Florence and the Machine La Roux Depeche Mode
Any weird things happened to you at a gig?
Have been approached for autographs! Have had people performing strange \"dances\" in front of me
What can people expect when coming to your gig?
In the \"old\" days we would do a mixture of covers and originals with a decent light-show - The originals would usually go down better than the covers - We did covers of songs that were not being done by other bands and suited our set
Have you ever been crowd surfing?
Yep, and it was quite good fun - It\'s always best heading away from the stage!
Give me 5 reasons why people should come and see you live?
Now, I would say great songs Good showman Great lightshow hopefully with images on the background Hear music that not many people would hear on the radio

To keep on making the music that I like

The music I used to did got heavier which was fine at the time - Now I\'m solo I can concentrate just on me
Have you ever thrown a TV out a window? If not, would you like to?!
No
What’s on your rider?
My what now? - I am happy to play for free for Charity gigs and support slots so I can get back to performing a full 2 hour set off my own back and all of my own material
So, you think you’re going to big hey – What makes you so different?
Songs are written on computer and are all keyboard based - Because of the influences the songs can be a little darker than the normal electronic music that you hear
What's on your rider? (What do you demand for doing a gig)
It used to be between 150 - 200 which was usually 50 quid each - Now I\'m not sure
