Half The World has just released their new single FALLING on Musik & Film records. FALLING is being pushed internationally to commercial rock radio and distrubution through Sony Music worldwide. The single FALLING is an early pre-release from Half The World's yet to be titled, forthcoming 4th album.

Hailing from Holland, lead singer Mary Magill -- with her striking visual presence and commanding, world-class voice -- is the band’s on-stage focal point. The rhythm section is comprised of Mat Hansen on bass and Pete Weaver on drums and backup vocals (Pete also produces and engineers for the band). Sean Thompson and Brett Pedersen’s incandescent, razor-edged guitars generate the fire that electrifies this monumental wall of sound. Their music will appeal to fans of Lacuna Coil Breaking Benjamin, Evanescence, Three Days Grace, Paramore, Chevelle, Seether, Sevendust, Foo Fighters etc.

In September 2008 Half The World released their 3rd album The Death Defying Years, their heaviest yet most melodic, hook-filled offering to date. Featuring guitar driven hard modern rock with amazing female vocals by beautiful, energetic front-woman Mary Magill. Think Lacuna Coil / Evanescence meets Breaking Benjamin, with enormous chorus hooks and the guitar energy of Helmet, Disturbed and Sevendust. Urgent, powerful vocal melodies are punctuated by masterful lyrics in this huge wall of sound which is Half The World’s signature.

In February 2009 Half The World released their first self-filmed video for the song "Carry My Dreams Away." (read less)
