Twin Falls (US) Changing Name to Twin Forks After Twin Falls (UK) Got...

Posted by - 09:07 PM on 03/28/13
Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.

Hey everyone,

It seems our choice of band names has upset the apple cart. Sorry for that. There are three other bands who have used the name. If you came here looking for any of the other Twin Falls, here are some links:

The world doesn't need a fourth Twin Falls... so allow us to introduce ourselves:

Hi! We are Twin Forks. It's nice to meet you! We'll be on tour with Ivan and Alyosha and The Lone Bellow from 4/16-4/29. Here is a new song:



Thanks for listening!

Suzie, Ben, Chris and Jonathan

In regards to any situation like this, either take it to court or simply shut the fuck up. Unless a band is serious about trademarking it and really keeping it to themselves, why whine about it?

I feel like they could have done better. Twin Forks? What does that even mean? Haha. Someone on their Facebook mentioned Twin Peaks. That would've been way better, and somewhat similar in meaning.

So then they could get in another dispute?! Great idea!

I assume it's like forks in a road? I liked falls better, but the name doesn't change the sound so I'm not worried.

I won one of those SXSW backstage pass prop things on Facebook, so now its collector's value is going to skyrocket from $2 to at least $3.50!

Why is old story so far mad at the new one? Isn't the old one defunct?

Also, Twin Forks is a weird name.
