Welsh rock up and comers Forrest release their debut album 16th July on Close To Home Records. Crafting textures that weld post rock structures with a thumping, hardcore, melodic fist of moody percussion, crashing reverb drenched guitars and epic big hearted vocal harmonies. We are housing the debut airing of their track ‘Meet You There’ below, enjoy.

“Forrest are an alternative four-piece from South Wales that formed in 2010.
Forrest’s debut EP, titled ‘Before You Go’ and a split release with Ireland’s ‘The Winter Passing’, building a small but dedicated following from the band’s BandCamp page and acting as a teaser which helped the band to develop their sound to a sweet spot with forthcoming debut album ‘Soluna’.

The band spent a year writing and recording ‘Soluna’, taking the time in the studio to perfect each arrangement and their sound fully. The album features 8 tracks recorded and engineered by Paul Griffiths at PG Productions and mixed and mastered by Ciaran Parnell. Guitarist Ryan Heatman had this to say about the stretched-out nature of the preparation for the release of this record:

“It was a very long time writing and recording, and although it became frustrating at times, I don’t think it’s as frustrating as it might have been if we released something we felt could have been better. Overall, we’re really proud of the outcome and we spent a lot of time on it. We hope people have as much fun listening to it as we did making it!”
