A new spark of hope has started glowing in the darkness of the rock music scene and with their untamed female lead vocals and haunting melodies the new wildfire named FOREVER STILL is starting to spread from Denmark.
Hailing from the same musical shores as FLYLEAF, HALESTORM or IN THIS MOMENT, the band has been building a solid fan base since 2013 and toured tireless throughout Europe. They released their fresh debut record entitled Tied Down on October 21st 2016 via Nuclear Blast, which was nominated for a Metal Hammer Award as “best debut album”. Since then they have toured with international heavy weight rockers including both LACUNA COIL and CHILDREN OF BODOM and played Europe’s most prominent festivals including opening the main stage at Bloodstock. While many young rock bands with a charming front woman are often labeled as ‘industry products’ or ‘engineered’, nothing is artificial or marionette-like about FOREVER STILL – writing their own songs is obvious for Maja Shining and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastrup, but the band also put their heart and soul into every other aspect affiliated with their music.
On March 29th, 2019, FOREVER STILL have released a new album “Breathe In Colours” via Nuclear Blast. With their sophomore full-length album, the band has evolved their songwriting skills even further and didn’t want to produce a carbon copy of its predecessor “Tied Down”, released in 2016. Instead, the new album drifts both into more epic moments like on the captivating opener “Rewind” or “Embrace The Tide”, while frontwoman Maja Shining also delivers her heaviest screams to date on the groovy “Survive” or their emotional declaration of war, ‘Fight’. And for the first time, the songwriting duo of singer Maja and multi-instrumentalist Mikkel Haastrup have decided to make the album a more collaborative effort and therefore brought their long time live drummer, Rune Frisch, into the studio with them to record the drums – a big step for the two young musicians who handled everything on their own on the previous record.
Along with the massive upgrade of the songwriting skills, FOREVER STILL was also able to refine their live performance, which you’ll be able to make sure of soon. Stay tuned, the tour dates will be announced soon!
