About the band

Since forming in mid-2014, Forests (identifying as a set of three-piece chicken nuggets) have gained a cult following of listeners through their EP and LP releases. Their reputation for riotous, frantic and fun live performances has led the band from performing in intimate club shows in Singapore to legendary venues abroad in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Malaysia. Blending 1990s-influenced emo with math-pop perfection, the Forests sound is a familiar yet excitingly fresh breath of rock that continues to win over audiences across the globe.
