Biography

30 Foot Fall (styled as 30footFALL) is an American punk rock band that began in Houston, Texas.

The band played their first show on Mother's Day in 1993 and were composed of Rubio Cisneros (Drummer), Mitch (bassist) Tony Avitia (Guitar), Butch Klotz (Vocals). Shortly after releasing their first two demos, Mitch left the Houston are to get married, moving Cisneros to bass. Damon DeLaPaz filled in the drum position, while Ativia left the group to start I-45 and Chris LaForge of I-End Result picked up as guitarist. Touring Houston, Dallas, and Austin, 30 Foot Fall's popularity grew; they started as openers for larger bands such as Screeching Weasel and Sum-41 among others.

After making several demos, 30 Foot Fall released several albums on various record labels starting with Elementary School Love 7, released in 1994 by Yo Mama's Records. In 1995, on Fuzzgun Records, they released their first studio album Divided We Stand. In 1996 they also released their second EP, Junior High Sucked 7. After hearing a demo, Bob Becker of Fearless Records signed 30 Foot Fall to a record deal and in 1997 produced their next album Acme-143.

The band toured extensively alongside other notable bands such as Bigwig and Diesel Boy. They released the EPs Unrealism and Cartoons in 1997 and 1998, respectively. Two of the three songs from Cartoons were included on their next album.

In 1999 the band released Ever Revolving, Never Evolving. The release was followed by numerous shows including a tour with The Vandals. Chris LaForge left the band at this time to seek other musical ventures. Jason Davis, brother of drummer Brian Davis) and formerly of Middlefinger, was brought on to play guitar when they resumed playing locally in spring of 2000. This line-up recorded The Doppler Effect in 2002. At this time, 30footFALL chose not to tour for the new album. Instead, the band chose to play occasional Houston/Dallas/Austin shows and their annual 30footFALL Christmas show at Fitzgerald's in Houston, TX. In 2003, they released 10yearsandstillFALLING, a live album which documents their ten years as a band.

At their 2005 Christmas Show, Klotz announced that he would be moving to Virginia, ending his 12 years in the Houston punk scene. He also announced LaForge would return as guitarist in 2006, making the band a 5 piece for the first time.

On December 25, 2010 at their 16th annual Christmas Show, the band self-released their Jesus, Elvis, and Richard Petty EP, which was their first album since 2002's The Doppler Effect. In 2012, 30footFALL were featured in When We Ruled H-Town, which documents Houston punk bands and their rise to popularity in the 1990s.

On June 30, 2014, Klotz announced that he would be returning to Houston after nearly nine years in Virginia. 30footFALL acknowledged this planned a show for August 30, 2014 at Fitzgerald's. The band played a brief set in October at The Continental Club with former drummer Damon DeLaPaz, excluding Jason and Brian Davis, thus recreating their original line up.

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.

While playing a brief tour with Bigwig in October 2017, it was announced that Chris Vasquez had officially replaced LaForge on lead guitar. 30footFALL confirmed they will release a new album and that LaForge's guitar tracks will be featured. The first single from their new album is titled "Champion Song" and will be released on October 27th.
