Florida technical metalcore outfit Forthteller have announced that they will be touring this winter with Emery and Oh Sleeper. This short run comes about as the band is finishing up work on the follow-up to their Billboard charting Nihilist EP. While in the studio, they decided to record acoustic versions of two songs off that EP. The first, “Evolve” is now out on Spotify and other digital platforms.
“We are very excited to be hitting the road with Emery and Oh Sleeper at the end of January. We really look up to those guys and a lot of us have been listening to them for a really long time. I know for me personally, ‘Children Of Fire’ by Oh Sleeper was the first metalcore physical CD I ever purchased and was part of what really got me into heavy music, so it’s a surreal feeling to be touring with them.
As far as music goes, we are putting the final touches on our first full length record right now. While we were finishing the demos for the record a few months back, we took a creative detour and actually re-imagined a couple songs off of our last EP, and wrote them to be acoustic. We all have backgrounds in softer music and really enjoyed the challenge of translating our heavy music.” – David Winters (Vocalist)
