NOVEMBER 2ND, 2018 – Massachusetts-based rock/pop band You’re F!red have released a brand new single, titled “Forgetmenow,” out on all digital platforms NOW. A dip into the band’s upcoming debut record, “Forgetmenow” is a narrative, progressive track, encompassing members’ Nolan Grzeg and Joe DeSalvo’s music influences, including Billy Joel, The Eagles, and The Dear Hunter.
While inspired by classic artists, “Forgetmenow” puts a bit of a retro spin on modern pop and rock. About the single, the band states:
The single “Forgetmenow” is a progressive rock/pop track, and tells a tale of a man who has been framed for murder, but unable to prove his innocence, resulting in a prison sentence for him. DeSalvo had written the instrumentals about three years ago, and Grzeg wrote lyrics and a melody to accompany it and took it to the studio.
You’re F!red initially started out as a solo project ran by Nolan Grzeg out of a basement in Dracut Massachusetts, starting in early 2017. Beforehand, Grzeg took on songwriting under a solo name, but decided it was better to have a “band front” instead. With that mindset, he crafted a four-song EP titled Who Can I Call, consisting of four songs ranging from melodic pop/rock to indie to electronic instrumentals.
After the debut EP released in August of 2017, he acquired live members from the area to take the songs live around the local area, gigging in places like Cambridge MA, Tewksbury MA, and Manchester NH. After some time, live guitarist Joe DeSalvo joined as an official member in mid-2018. With his songwriting and playing abilities, Grzeg and DeSalvo begin writing a full-length album. With You’re F!red being two official members, Grzeg and DeSalvo are in the midst of completing and producing a new record to be released early 2019.
Their lead single Forgetmenow releases on November 2nd, self-produced and mastering done by Dan Knittel at Anthemic Recording Studios. “Forgetmenow” is available on all digital platforms NOW.
