Forsythia's Discussion About All New Music, Goes Quite Well....

Metalcore go getters FORSYTHIA have been active since 2012. Releasing an array of content, ranging from a handful of EP's, singles, with all new content coming up real soon. The band goes into discussion about their works, namesake, and what lays ahead.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band has been together since 2012, here's our members: 

Cody - Guitar / Second vox / Instrumental writer (the one answering these questions)

Rodney - Main vox / Lyricist 

Olas - Guitar / Producer 

Dylan - Bass

Zack - Drums

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

We had been trying to figure out a name for sometime, and then randomly I was watching the movie Contagion and saw the forthysia bush was the cure for the virus in the movie, and then that same week saw the name Forsythia on a street sign and in that moment I decided it was the band's name. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We're based out of Boise, Idaho. As far as the music scene is concerned, there's a few great local venues but we especially love to be able to play at The Shredder. We also have some very talented metalcore acts here, it would definitely be worth your time to go check out our friends We Were Giants and Life Upon Liars.

4. How would you describe your style?

Over the years I've gotten a great deal of inspiration from bands like Thrice, Counterparts, Erra, and Northlane. It's hard for me to genre myself because I'm the one writing the instrumental side of things. But I know it's metalcore and I know it's good, that's our sound. 

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We've released a handful of EP's throughout the years, with our latest release being Love Divinity, which we were lucky enough to get a feature by Robby Baca from The Contortionist, on the track In Transition. I think you'll usually find our sound really upbeat, ambient and milotic. The lyrics are thought provoking and very personal. I think there's something for everyone in our music. 

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We've recently released three *very good* singles that are due to be a part of an upcoming EP that you can expect from us this spring. 

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Unfortunately with the state of everything we have absolutely nothing on the books. 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

To continue dialing in and perfecting our sound, which we are extremely proud of. We want to continue to make music that we and our fans are passionate about. Our biggest goal at the moment is just to get ourselves out there and heard.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can listen to us on every streaming platform. We don't have anywhere you can buy our stuff at the moment, but if you are wanting to show some love, we would really appreciate if you could give our Instagram/Facebook a follow at @forsythia208 /

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That the people making this music are really just five friends doing what we love together. And we hope you listen to our music when you're with your friends, doing what you guys love.
