This 5 piece metal band formed in 2012 in Michigan and has been making a name for themselves ever since. Last year the For We Are Many won an opening spot on the Chicago Open Air Festival through a contest on Reverb Nation. 1000’s of bands and they came away as the winner which lets you know immediately this band doesn’t mind competition and they certainly showed they are winners. If that wasn’t enough, prior to this the band in a similar contest or audition process also won a slot on the Vans Warped Tour as well a year or so ago. Though the band has had to fight for spots on theses festivals I believe they have now established themselves as an act that stands their ground and can entertain and please a huge crowd of fans. Because of their jaw dropping performance at Chicago Open Air the band was also invited to play the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky which like Chicago Open Air was also organized by Danny Wimmer Presents. For We Are Many has a true melodic metalcore sound that you have to witness in person just to believe.
This past October I had a chance to speak with not 1, not 2, but the entire band after their performance and get an idea of what its been like for the band to win these slots and then be welcomed to another festival because of their hard work. Reaction from the fans at Louder Than Life and mosh pits forming. The members of For We Are Many also talk about their quick progression from playing bars to being pampered in trailers and getting catered food, as well as playing along side some of the artist they have grew up idolizing. The band also talks about the recording their upcoming debut album ‘Breaking Through’ that they had planned to be out early this year. Keep an eye out as we will certainly let you know when the album has a release date. You can watch the entire interview below:
