- Introduce us to your band!
We are Forget Conformity from Ft. Worth Texas – metalcore minstrels at your service
- How did you guys start out?
The band started out as a way for the only original member in the band, Jonathon Baker, to play a comeback show with a former band of his on the bill. Forget Conformity formed that way, but after several member changes, it became something more, with a core 4 members being locked in July 2017.
- Describe your band’s sound.
We combine elements of metalcore from a bygone era, like the driving riffs of Parkway Drive and the ferocity of Norma Jean, with the melody missing from metalcore nowadays.
- What influences your craft?
Life, depression, happiness, sex – pretty much anything and everything that we come into contact with has a part of inspiration when it comes to our sound, style, and substance.
- What makes your project different?
We don’t feel the need to fit in to any type of box just to get people to like us. We have many different styles, and don’t feel as if we need to stick to a certain format to be successful.
- When introducing people to your music, what song should I show them first? What is your quintessential track?
Valhalla is probably the track that incompasses most of the things we do well as a band.
- What has been the biggest struggle in your career so far?
Finding a 5th member that shares the same vision as the 4 core members.
- What has been the biggest highlight in your career so far?
Either playing ‘So What’ 2017 or playing in front of a sold out crown with Mushroomhead in 2018
- How bright is the future of your band – what are the plans?
We want to release more material this year, we almost have a full albums worth of material that we may split up into two EP’s. Not sure, but mostly just playing shows and spreading our name.
- When all is said and done, how would you like to be remembered?
As a band that did everything they could to have experiences while playing music, and not as a band who did everything they could to just make it.
