Nearly twenty years ago Engineer Records worked with an incredible band called A Rocket Sent To You and released tracks for them both on the Firework Anatomy compilation (IGN003) and the Rydell / San Geronimo / ARSTY (IGN005) split too. Now, Chris Wetterman (guitarist), one of the original members, has been working on an awesome new nine track EP called 'Resonate' (IGN286) under the new band name of Forever Again.
Forever Again is an American Indie rock band based in the Washington DC area. Their debut album, Resonate, will be released early in 2021 by Engineer Records. (The first single from it, 'Rearview Mirror' is already out and being airplay by rock radio stations). Beginning as a solo project of Chris Wetterman, (former guitarist for the band A Rocket Sent to You) the band officially formed when Wetterman joined with vocalist Christian Nuckels. The duo met in the Fall of 2017 and quickly realised they shared the same musical background and a long list of similar influences. It was about a year later that Wetterman was asked by Nuckels to play guitar for his solo album, Alive and Free. During that process the two teamed up to further evolve Wetterman’s material into these indie power-pop anthems.
The full tracklist for Forever Again's 'Resonate' will be: 'Rearview mirror', 'Around the world', 'Indecisions', '8/9', 'Voices', 'Epitaph', 'Threads', 'Healing hands' and 'Slowdance on the ceiling'. The album is available now on digital channels and will be released on CD in February 2021 and LP later this spring.
Early reviews for the lead single 'Rearview mirror' have said:
"When I listen to this song, I love it already from the beginning. It reminds me again of my favourite alternative (emo) band. I love also the melody, rhythm and harmony of this song it blends well the alternative melo-rock genre. I like the way the singer deliver this song the voice is unique. I love the message of the song it's like telling us that the greatest mistake in life is the chances that we didn't make and the promises that some of us break, it's an emotional inspirational song for me."
"Rearview Mirror is a rock theme similar to that used in the introductions of many American series.”
"This track really gives some Jimmy Eat World vibes. Positive beats and lyrics, with a fantastic melody throughout. Easy to be drawn into it from the start! The strings mid-way through the track really give a nice touch. Would love to hear an acoustic version of this song!"
