FOREVER STILL RELEASE NEW EP “SCARS” AS PART 1 OF THEIR DEBUT ALBUM AND LET FANS PAY WHAT THEY WANT
Female fronted, alternative rock band Forever Still have released a new EP called “Scars”. The EP is the first of three digital EPs that will eventually end up as one physical full length album in the spring of 2015. The EP can be downloaded directly from the bands website: www.foreverstill.dk where the band lets their fans pay what they want for it.
“We believe that music should be available to everyone – both those who are broke, and those who have a little extra to spare in support of the artists they love” Maja explains. “That’s why we’re letting the fans name their own price. All we ask is that they SHARE it with everyone!”
The EP is recorded, mixed and mastered in Copenhagen by band member Mikkel Haastrup in the band’s own studio. Mikkel is a trained sound engineer by Flemming ‘Metallica’ Rasmussen. “We like our music and everything surrounding it to be 100% honest and we felt the only way we could achieve that was by doing everything ourselves” says Mikkel.
The EP is Part 1 of the bands debut album which is a concept album about a suppressed individual struggling through depression, anxiety, and worthlessness and getting stronger in the process. “The songs are all very raw, emotional and somewhat imperfect, because we wanted it to sound like someone falling apart and trying to put the pieces back together” says Maja
The EP has been welcomed with open arms by both fans and media calling it a “three song masterpiece”, as well as stating that “Maja’s voice is better than ever and showcases incredible versatility. The compositional skills of the band go from strength to strength and the musicianship is awesomely professional.”
I had the opportunity to review Forever Still’s The Key here on the site back in August. If you read my review you know I was quite taken with this band. I’m really looking forward to hearing what they have for us this time around.
