In the rare occasions that the words "Kentucky" and "post-hardcore cross paths, it's usually in reference to the genre mainstays Emarosa. However, another band has risen, and that band is Florence, KY natives Softspoken. They've set out to bring their musical know-how to the forefront of modern post-hardcore.
Composed of Logan Combs, Chris Wethington, Billy Zimpelman, Garrett Harper, and Zach Payne, Softspoken has recently announced that they're releasing their debut EP Pathways on October 28th.
Pathways Track List:
2. Something I'm Missing
3. Fix Myself
4. I Feel Fire (feat. Rory Rodriguez of Dayseeker)
5. Close To Me
With Pathways, the band hopes to create a point of reference for other troubled folk to relate to. For them, it truly comes from the heart.
Says the band of the EP, "We want our music to be thought and emotion provoking and therapeutic. We're doing this music as a form of healing for ourselves and we also think and hope that people out there listening to it can find a similar source of vitality from it as well."
It's clear that the band is ambitious, even coming to Lancaster, PA earlier this year to participate in the LAUNCH Music Festival and Conference. These guys have talent, flare, and above all, a meaningful message to deliver to the masses.
These guys are raring to get out there and perform, so stay tuned for more info by following these bands at their individual outlets and checking their website regularly. These guys have big things in store! Until then, stay tuned!
