Metal Insider is sad to report Falling To Pieces’ frontwoman, Nicci DeSoto (Nicci D.), perished in a motorcycle accident over the weekend. The Bay Area band had been a finalist in the No Label Needed contest and series. Falling to Pieces had formed in 2004, and Nicci joined two years ago along with former Bleeding Through guitarist Scott Danough. The band released an independent EP in 2009 titled Awaken the Weak. Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum picked the band as one of his five favorite finalists, stating “a perfect example of how awesome the blending of European and American metal styles can be.” DeSoto was 25.
