Fable Cry presents: "Fool Me Once"
“Fool Me Once” is a unique play on vampiric mythos and elements of noir - cynicism, fatalism and moral ambiguity - packaged into a rock album. The story follows anti-heroes turned reluctant partners Archie Walker and Josie Belue on their quest to topple kingpin Harold “The Diamond” Helsinger from the throne of his bootlegging empire, all chronicled by private investigator, Max Rudolph.
“It’s a story of selfish people doing selfish things who don’t always get what they want. In some ways it’s a parable that reflects the people we were when we initially began writing it in 2017 as we were embarking on a lot of the maturing that happens in your late twenties. And it’s all told in the most decadent way possible, utilizing all of the talent we could muster from ten years of touring and performing.”
the theatrical rock band from Nashville, TN
...draws inspiration, both musically and poetically, from all things imaginative, mythical, and spooky. With a colorfully haunting melody and a flourishing sweep of the hand, they will weave their strand of tales and take you with them on a wild ride, from the eerie solitude of a dark forest to the wily seas; from the tippy top of a wind swept mountain pass to the grittiest alleyways of sordid scum.
Their new album (releasing August 2020) is a concept rock opera about gangsters, vampires, showgirls, betrayal and petty revenge set against the seedy underbelly of the prohibition era.
