You may have already seen mention of a major change that’s soon to take place in our band, and it’s about time we reveal just what this is all about, so here it is:
This autumn, my brother Justin is getting married, and immediately moving to Cincinnati! This is the start of something truly awesome for him and his lovely fiancé, but of course it’s very bitter-sweet for Forging Reverie, as we are once again forced to part with an important member of our tribe. Justin has been our recording engineer and co-producer from the start. He joined us as a performing member in 2010, adding second guitar, keyboards, samples and supporting vocals, and over the past few years he has become absolutely integral, especially as we’ve begun to compose new material.
In the meantime, we are rapidly demoing a lot of what we’ve been working on, with the prospect of producing a record of some kind with Justin before the opportunity is gone; it’s hard to say what will come of this, and how soon we’ll be able to share a finished product with you all, but it is our first priority as of now.
That said, we do have other priorities…
- We may of course be seeking someone to take over Justin’s ambiguous role in our band. This person could play exactly the instruments Justin did, or something a bit different. Change can be good, and we are open to exploring where the influence of someone new might take our music!
- Coincidentally, we will also be in need of a new rehearsal space extremely soon. This is completely unrelated to Justin’s situation, but it’s absolutely crucial. Please contact us with any leads for rehearsal spaces.
- Finally, we are putting some energy into a couple shows, which are pretty special, because they will be your last chance to see this band perform, at least with Justin.
You’ll notice the first show is tomorrow night; so sorry for the late notice, but hopefully many of you got the memo sooner, across our various social media.
