Combining intricate riffs and furious rhythms with anthemic, cascading vocals, LestWeForget’s unique brand of progressive metal synthesises those two most disparate of things - the complex and the catchy.
The band’s innovative sound derives from juxtaposition. This exists in the connection between JH Norris’s vocals, Harry Lingard-Bright’s soaring lead lines, and Paul Heavey’s driving guitar riffs.
Praised especially by BBC Introducing’s Dave Gilyeat, LestWeForget’s 2017 release ‘Sweet Serenity’ showcased the band's affinity for a technical riff alongside a melodic, stadium-filling vocal line, and can be listened to on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music and more, alongside their wider back catalogue.
LestWeForget's latest single, 'Zero Won', is the most emphatic manifesto of their style to date - it has garnered a multitude of plaudits through a variety of publications and media.
Since appearing to a crowd of 6,000 at the Proud2 in London’s O2 Arena during the final of Live and Unsigned, at which the band played for high-profile industry professionals such as Kerrang!’s Alex Baker, LestWeForget have gone out on a number of headline runs, and have obtained notable support slots with bands such as Yashin, Fearless Vampire Killers, Press to Meco, Wars, Chapter and Verse, and Martyr de Mona, among others.
They have sold out the O2 Academy 2 in Oxford, and have performed at prestigious live venues across the UK.
In May 2019, LestWeForget signed to UAC Management.
The 'Theatres of the Mind' EP was released on all major streaming platforms on Friday 18 October 2019.
2020 began for the band with a re-released and re-mastered version of 'Home' in March, before the new single 'Visitors' dropped the following April. LestWeForget completed the year with the release of their latest track, 'Messiah Complex' on 4 December.
