30footFALL
30footFALL
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), Tony Avitia (Guitar) and 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, 30 Foot Fall'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 early NOFX, and Minor Threat.

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

The band toured extensively and developed a strong underground following touring alongside other notable bands such as Bigwig and Diesel Boy. Around this time Fenix-TX was picked up by MCA records and DeLaPaz took the opportunity to move to California and record their new album. They picked up drummer Brian Davis formerly of Middlefinger.

30 foot FALL received an offer from Dexter Holland of The Offspring to release their next full-length album on his Nitro Records whom Holland's band was affiliated with. In 1999 the band released "Ever Revolving, Never Evolving" which was noted as one of their most popular albums. The release was followed by numerous shows and tour dates including a tour with The Vandals. Tour after tour would eventually wear on the guys so they decided to stick with home lives and their families. Chris LaForge left the band at this time to seek other musical ventures so they brought in Jason Davis formerly of Middlefinger to take over guitar duties. This line-up recorded "The Doppler Effect" in 2002. LaForge later returned as guitarist which made them a five piece for the first time.

Within the next few years the band only played occasionally in Texas venues and at the annual 30 foot FALL Christmas Show at Fitzgerald's in Houston, Texas. On December 25 of 2010 the band once again self-released their newest record entitled "Jesus, Elvis, and Richard Petty".
