The Fray to rock Niagara Falls next week- VIDEO

Denver-based band the Fray, who didn’t anticipate achieving national success with their first album but did when the album went double platinum, will perform at 8 p.m. on Oct. 25 at the Seneca Niagara Events Center, 310 4th St., Niagara Falls.
The quartet broke into the music industry the old-fashioned way, by playing lots of local gigs, getting attention from local press and radio stations. The Fray achieved national success with their first single, “Over My Head (Cable Car),” and worldwide fame with their second, “How to Save a Life.”
The band has since released three albums, with a fourth coming at the end of this year. The album will be more lighthearted than previous albums. To get a taste of the new album, look for the single “Love Don’t Die,” which will be available on iTunes on Oct. 21.
“We’re all amped up and have new energy,” guitarist Joe King said to Niagara This Week. “Honestly, we wanted to create a different work. We still are going to maintain our ‘it’s about the song’ approach, but we’ve added modern production.”
Since it’s hard for bands to remain on the top of the charts, this album is very important for them. “We’d much rather be that kind of band that has a constant thread,” King said. “The next record will be a surprise, but it will be consistent with what we do.”
Even though the Fray is busy finalizing its new album and making tour stops, the band will still manage to set aside time to give back to the community that helped them become the popular band they are today.
The Fray will perform at Colorado Rising, a benefit for flood relief, at 6 p.m. Oct. 27 at the 1STBANK Center along with Dave Matthews Band, Big Head Todd, The Monsters, The Lumineers and DeVotchKa.
Tickets for this event are between $65 and $15 and available at tickethorse.com.
