Former Kreator bassist Christian “Speesy” Giesler has joined forces with Jeramie Kling (Venom Inc., Massacre, The Absence), Taylor Nordberg (Massacre, The Absence) and vocalist/lyricist Brian Stephenson (Old James, Skull Fist) in punk act, FORE.
The band have thus far released two songs: “What’s Right For You” and “Today We Rise (No Tomorrow),” which are available through their Bandcamp (you can also stream them below).
Jeramie and I both love that late 80s/early 90s punk like BAD RELIGION, PENNYWISE, THE OFFSPRING, NOFX, so we decided it was time for us to make a punk band. We had already worked with Speesy and Brian in our “One Song In One Day” quarantine series, so we knew they were talented, pro, and easy to work with.
So excited about a new band! Taylor asked me if I wanted to do something punk-like, and I agreed immediately as everyone knows, I’m a very, very big punk fan. From the idea to now, only 5 or 6 weeks have past.
FORE’s first songs, along with the rest of the band‘s debut LP, were mixed and mastered by Nordberg and Kling at their own Smoke & Mirrors Productions in Spring Hill, Florida.
