30footFALL is a punk rock band that began in Houston. The band played their first show on Mother’s Day in 1993 and were composed of Rubio Cisneros (Drummer), Tony Avitia (Guitar), Butch Klotz (Vocals). Shortly after releasing their first demo, Damon Delapaz who was also playing for Fenix-TX joined as the band’s drummer making Cisneros bassist. Ativia left the group to start I-45 and Chris Laforge picked up as guitarist.
Touring Houston, Dallas, and Austin, 30FootFall’s popularity grew; they started as openers for larger bands such as Screeching Weasel and Sum-41 among others. Stylistically, the band developed sounds similar to NOFX, and Minor Threat.
2017 should have been an eventful year for 30FootFALL. Sadly, Chris LaForge died at age 42 on May 29, 2017. His final show with the band was at the Nightingale Room in April 2017.
Despite uncertainty regarding their future, 30footFALL played their scheduled June show at Saint Arnold’s brewery with Skeleton Dick guitarist Chris Vasquez and Arnett Vaughn filling in on guitars.
30footFALL has confirmed they will release a new album and that Chris’ guitar tracks will be featured.
