Since their formation in mid 2014, Forests has gained a global cult following of listeners through their unique blend of 90s-influenced emo with math-pop perfection. The Singapore-based trio gained a huge increase in global listenership upon the release of their sophomore album Spending Eternity In A Japanese Convenience Store, with word-of-mouth buzz from fans and critics alike hailing them as new heroes of the emo/math rock genre.
The group has been featured on publications such as The Ringer, Stereogum, NME and Bandwagon. They are the only Asian band highlighted on Vulture’s list of 100 Greatest Emo Songs of All Time as well as The Ringer’s The Most Important Emo Songs Of Every Year, with Tamago named as their pick for 2016’s most important emo song—a huge honour to be mentioned alongside legendary genre stalwarts such as American Football, Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate.
In 2022, alongside their newest member Daniel, the trio released their third full-length album Get In Losers, We’re Going To Eternal Damnation, well-received by fans and hailed by critics as “Forests at their summit, ready to conquer the world” (NME Asia) and “one of the most instantly enjoyable albums [heard] this year” (Stereogum).
While the band had previously performed in countries like Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, China and Malaysia, 2023 saw them embark on a multi-city USA tour alongside Ben Quad and The Others Like Us. While in the US, the band recorded a session for the acclaimed web series Audiotree Live, which is set to premiere on 27 Sep 2023. Forests continues to bring their riotous, frantic and exciting live performances across Southeast Asia and the world, causing a scene at legendary venues and intimate club shows alike.
