Forth releases acclaimed and highly-anticipated sophomore hard rock album, Captivity
Helsinki, March 1, 2019. Riding high on the enthusiastic response to their pre-album releases, Forth is finally set to drop it’s highly anticipated follow-up album, Captivity. The critics have already been praising the work with Rockers and Other Animals Magazine writing, “Captivity is absolutely one of the best records so far removed for this 2019, modern, fresh, sometimes melancholic, and above all variegated, influenced by more genres but remaining well anchored to a hard rock with grunge roots”. Randy Skaggs from Q107 radio in Kingston, Canada proclaims, "Wow...talk about kick ass rock - love the 80's glam rock feel. Tight riffs, pounding bass/drums and powerful vocals. Loved every song. Will be playing on Q108!”
Captivity is the culmination of more than a year’s effort by the Finnish-Canadian quartet. It began its life as a fan-funded follow up to their debut album Road Stories and won significant financial support from Swedish Culture Foudation in Finland. Early releases from the album have performed very well with the first single “Black Angel” debuting at #2 on Finnish national radio’s YLE Vegatoppen chart. Pre-release track “Higher Ground” was premiered at #1 on the UK’s Radio Indie Alliance chart. Critics have also applauded other singles like “On Top of the World”, with Jen Dan of Rebel Noise, writing, “You just can’t help singing along to the chorus of the song, which bursts out with an anthemic buoyancy. So join in the joyful chant!”.
Forth has set out to defy a complacent industry that too-often deems rock dead. The international band draw on diverse influences including Neil Young, Queen, Nirvana and Megadeth. Forth is fronted by singer-songwriter, Brian Forth from Toronto, currently living in Finland as a “love refugee”. Brian joins his Finnish band mates Tim Norrgrann(lead guitar), Mikael Söderbäck (bass) and Eric Von Hertzen (drums) in this high-octane rock quartet.
