Hey all!!

Me and my band are in the process of writing and recording a full-length EP, so I will be posting updates as this thing comes together! Some of you have already heard my song "Justify", so here's another demo of a song my buddy wrote for the EP.



Hope you guys enjoy! Please give me your feedback if you so desire and stay tuned for more. Here's a link to our Facebook page: https://m.facebook.com/formaldenialband/

I love Don't Forget. The Breaking Benjamin vibes in that song are real :D The verses stand out to me the most (I really love that vocal melody), but the chorus is great as well. Great singing once again.

Thanks Timo! The lead singer is a huge Breaking Benjamin fan, it really does come out in his singing and songwriting. Stay tuned, we have lots of cool things written and getting ready to record! ;)

Just wanted to share an update with anyone even remotely interested

As of today, we are 6 full songs into the recording process with #s 7-8 halfway finished. I'm hoping to get to a nice solid number of 10 tracks on the album. We also decided on an album title last night.

Can't wait to share more with you guys, I'm very excited with how this is turning out!! :D :peace stay tuned for more!

Dayum, you guys sound amazing. I really liked the vibe of that one. Are you trying to get your feet into the professional music business or is this just a fun project?

Liked it, Hartie! Definitely got a BB vibe from the intro riffs.

We would love making it into the professional side of things, we're all in college for it so it's something each of us are extremely passionate about. None of us would be opposed to doing this for a living :D right now we're just trying to write, record, and release the best music possible and get noticed. But thank you so much for the support :)

I like it. Are you in C on those? Some really deep tones. I definitely get BB vibes there. You need to fight to get more Tremonti in there, bro.

Thanks man! Tunings are all over the place. "Don't Forget" is in Drop A on a 7-string (AEADGBE), "Justify" is in regular old Drop D, and "Brink" is in Drop B.

As far as the influence, the lead singer is a huge BB fan, so that naturally comes through in his songwriting. But have no fear, we still have plenty more to release and the Tremonti influence is definitely there on a couple songs ;) One is based around Mark's style of palm muted, downpicked metal riffs and two are influenced by his classic clean, melodic finger picked style. Can't wait to put those out

I'm pretty excited for you. That is where I'd like to get to. Currently I'm just writing riffs and playing with alternate tunings.

You guys have a tight sound. Now you just need some luck.

Hey guys!

We're playing a couple of shows this week, and I just had an idea. Would any of you possibly be interested in a Facebook live stream? If nobody is interested, nobody is interested and that's fine. But I do know some of you have been real supportive and enjoy our music, so it would be cool to give you guys a chance to watch us live

I think it's a great idea. My son has either baseball or shooting sports literally every night or I'd be in.

The place did a Facebook live session on Thursday, but the audio/video was pretty shit. We have another gig tonight, I'm gonna try and get one of my friends to record it and I'll upload it to either my YouTube channel or the band's channel

Here's some video from the show on Thursday. It's one of our songs done acoustically, so the camera's audio wasn't destroyed
