Post-hardcore band Softspoken got its start in January of 2016, based in the small city of Florence, Kentucky. With years of experience gained from previous bands, Softspoken quickly got to work making their mark on the scene. In May of 2016 the band traveled to Glendale, AZ to record their debut EP “Pathways” with producer Cameron Mizell at Chango Studios (see Memphis May Fire, Sleeping With Sirens, Outline In Color). In August of the same year, they announced that they had partnered with indie record label We Are Triumphant for the release of their EP.
Softspoken spent the rest of 2016 building their local and regional fan base by supporting larger acts in their hometown and going on their own short-run tours. Electing to release each song from the EP a month at a time, their online presence has continued to grow, spreading their name and music to wider audiences across the United States and the world.
Their debut EP “Pathways” — released worldwide on March 17th, 2017 — features five tracks that truly live up to the post-hardcore label. The songs cover a range of topics including depression and mental illness, social issues, struggles with addiction, and the importance of loved ones. The band describes the sound of the EP as a mix of passion, angst, uncertainty, hopefulness, and nostalgia – all hammered home by their blend of catchy and unique guitar riffs, powerful rhythms, and emotive vocals.
Still only a little over a year old, Softspoken is a name that is already catching on in the underground scene. With the power of their music and the intensity of their live shows already widely talked about, 2017 is a year sure to push Softspoken ever farther into the spotlights of those music lovers they hope to connect with.
