Post-Hardcore 5-piece, ALL WILL FALL, hailing all the way from Bloemfontein have been working their way through the scene for the last ten years. Pedro Jardim (drums) explains the struggles of being a metal band from a small town and how playing a show like Woodstock SA for people who enjoy their music is what keeps them motivated through thick and thin.

So you guys are from all the way from Bloemfontein. What is like trying to succeed as a band in a town with such a small scene? What are the kinds of struggles you face?

I’ve got to say it is an uphill battle.  Being from Bloemfontein we are quite central from all the other places but it is still quite far to travel to the bigger cities, with Jo’burg being the closest.   That places us in a difficult situation to save up money for necessities like money for an album, merch, etc.   We always love traveling to play a gig but it’s quite difficult to play shows each weekend as traveling each time is nearby impossible with work and family responsibilities. That being said – we always try our best to get to gigs, does not matter how far away when the opportunity arises!


You guys have been around for a whole decade already, how have you guys changed as a band, and what keeps you motivated to keep going?

Oh wow, let’s start with membership changes… We have been through a lot of members! Not out of negative vibes but as life is, people move, and generally moves away from Bloem to greener pastures.   So that in turn changes our sound as obviously each new member adds their flavor. b (7)



As for what keeps us motivated?  I’d say it is the music.  Making music in front of people and just playing music as friends.  That has been one constant in AWF.  We will always just be 5 brasse making tunes. 


Do you guys have any plans to record any time soon?


Actually…..   We have not really “announced” this or talked about it on our social media but we’ve been working on an album for like the last two years!  Honestly, with monetary struggles and membership changes, it got stretched out, but……. here goes…. we are finished with all the instruments!

We are busy recording the vocals currently.  It will be a full length album with songs we really believe in and have worked really, really hard on.  Super keen to finish up and share with everyone!


What can people who don’t know you, expect to see/hear from your set?

5 guys from the middle of nowhere, trying their best to make some party(ish) metal!  Honestly, we don’t really have a gimmick or anything, we are just here to make some tunes and if people enjoy that… then fuck yeah!

Can you tell us something about All Will Fall that people might not know?

We have played with some …. non- metal acts like Bobby van Jaarsveld, Diederik from 7de Laan, Dozi and Die Antwoord!


When you hear the word Woodstock, what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Do you remember the television program “Stokvel” on SABC 2 way back?  For some reason my mind keeps making some connection with Stokvel and Woodstock and a mixture of both of the words.

What is the funniest or strangest thing you have seen at a festival?

I guess off the top of my head it would be a group of guys camping at Ramfest 2013 that had a HUGE dildo funnel.   Genius.


Woodstock SA has a wide range of musical styles that will be showcased, is there anyone outside of your genre that you are keen to see?

Straight up Satanic Dagga Orgy!
