Band: Unfortuneteller
From: Hudson Valley, New York

Their formation story:
(Angelo, vocals): "We have all been friends for over two decades, and previously have played in other bands together. Originally, Jeff and Bill were working on some songs and then they reached out to me.

"There was a short time that I was playing bass in the band but I wanted to focus more on singing so we got in touch with our friend Eddie and asked him to play. From there, we started working on the rest of our writing process together."

Their sound in their own words:
"I would say we are a metallic hardcore band with some punk tendencies. Our influences span from Fugazi to Converge, but a lot of what we write just comes from how we play off of each other and our history of playing together as well as watching each other’s bands when we’re were growing up." 

Latest release info:
"'Unfortuneteller' and 'Vibekiller' are two songs we tracked live at our practice space. We did a handful of takes of each song and picked the best one including vocals. They were engineered, mixed and mastered by our drummer."

Future plans:
"We plan on taking some time to record an EP’s worth of music and then look to play more shows, hopefully some out of state shows too. We’re  just having fun and are excited to be working on music together."

What other bands from their region should we check out?
"Exitum, Spiritkiller, and Black Lincoln."
