After a successful 2017 that included several tours and their Billboard charting label debut, Florida technical metalcore outfit Forthteller have started 2018 by releasing their brand new music video. The video, for "Of Nothing off the Nihilist EP (view here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38_DPTHMFZk&feature=youtu.be), is one of the last pieces of content in support for that EP before the band begins work on their follow-up while continuing their consistent tour schedule.
“‘Of Nothing’ represents the struggle to find meaning. In an exceedingly nihilistic society, the search for meaning and purpose has created, for many, an existential crisis that can often drive us to madness. The main character in this video represents the internal struggle of a person trying to find meaning, while the cloaked figure represents an enlightened being attempting to guide a lost individual through the void. On the whole, this song fits with the rest of our Nihilist EP, which is our attempt to create a dialogue about the topic of human existence. Why do we exist? We do we persist?" - Thom Schultz (Drummer)
Forthteller is a rising local band out of Tampa, FL that began in 2014 under the name I Shot the Albatross. Due to an evolution in sound from their first EP to their second one, which was released on May 21st, 2016, the band decided that a name change was in order. The band strives to push the boundaries in metalcore with unique riffs, progressive composition, and a myriad of changes in time signatures. Blending a diverse range of sounds, Forthteller is not your average metalcore outfit. Their emotional and dramatic showmanship, with visually striking intensity, lends the bands’ live performance to be endlessly captivating. In late June 2016, the band signed with Imminence Records and announced their first tour. The continued their consistent touring schedule while releasing their Billboard charting label debut in July of 2017.
