I have been playing since I was 2-3 years old, My father played killer 70's progressive/jam guitar and started me quite early. He was looking to have a "built in" jam drummer I suppose!! … As I got older I started jamming with friends (around the ages 12-14) eventually forming a band at 16 years old. That early band led to another band and then I ultimately started the Absence in 2004 (with Pete, Pat, Jamie and Nick). It was at this point I really started to "up" my practice regime. Heavy amounts of rudiments and drills (Drills for days). My main goal has been fluidity, always trying to "become water". I really respect drummers like Tim Alexander (primus) and Stewart Copeland (the police), as they look effortless while being so concise. That thinking (fluidity) has influenced all aspects of my life.
FORE, the punk band featuring Christian “Speesy” Giesler (ex-KREATOR), Jeramie Kling (VENOM INC, MASSACRE, THE ABSENCE), Taylor Nordberg (MASSACRE, THE ABSENCE) and Brian Stephenson (OLD JAMES, SKULL FIST), have released two new songs, “Song For A Friend” and “Pet” on the band’s Bandcamp page.
The group previously released their debut songs “What’s Right For You” and “Today We Rise (No Tomorrow)” last month to a positive and response.
Regarding the first stages of the band’s existence and the response so far, Stephenson said: “So inevitably stoked to be on board with such fine gentlemen on a project I’d never have imagined could have come to fruition. A real punk rock group with heavy metals A-team. DIY, in your face. More than a band. A movement. Stoked is not even close to how this feels for me. Surrounded by legends, and to be a part of something so special is truly and uniquely a gift. The riffs and playing on these songs are in a league of their own. Only something the finest craftsmen in their respective fields could create and to put my voice to it is a high honor. Punks not dead.”
Kling added, “The world needs a punk, it has been far too long without. If you know a punk, then hand them this music. They will rejoice, I know because I was there.”
The debut FORE album is being mixed and mastered by Nordberg and Kling at their own Smoke & Mirrors Productions in Spring Hill, Florida.
