Album Notes
All Access Magazine -
"If ever there was a case study on how to produce perfect power pop that combines fantastic rhythms, intelligent lyrics and finely crafted songs, with superb production values, that will endure for many years - this is it. I think this album will be looked upon as a classic years from now."

PopBang Radio -
"Nashville's Former could be (and should be) signed to a major label in a heartbeat and heard all over the place. Ultra-catchy tunes, 3-part harmonies, and pristine (but not overdone) production match up with a lot of talent in the band to create one of the hottest debut bands of the year. Excellent stuff!"

— Aaron Wayne-Duke, Pure Rock 92.7, The Laser, Galesburg, IL
"Former writes the kind of songs Cheap Trick used to...and are hands down the best unsigned band I've heard in a long, long time. American Idol be damned. These guys are the real deal."

Sugarbuzz Magazine - Lynda D.
"fORMER put the ‘power’ in powerpop rock. The songwriting is so tight it makes a virgin seem a little loose. If fORMER were a popcorn flavour, it would be that salty sweet kind that contradicts, yet completely balances itself. "

-Bill's Music Forum
"You might be able to guess that this record has been in the planning stages for about 3 years now…otherwise the boys in the power pop and rock outfit fORMER might have entitled it “The Kids Deserve Netflix”. At any rate, I think many fans will agree that the ten songs on this new record were well worth the wait.
Plenty of punchy, crunchy guitar bring these songs to life, and Smith’s vocals have a mild raspy quality that match the prototype for this genre. While virtually every track is a fun and engaging listen, one of my favorites is the built-for-radio mid-tempo rocker “How Does It Feel” – kind of a Cheap Trick – Tom Petty fusion. With its luscious harmonies, “Lie To Me” comes across just as strong – in a different decade, this could have easily been a top 10 hit. “Fix You” is propelled by an infectious guitar riff, building up to another rewarding chorus. “Come On” is another memorable highlight at the tail end of the record. If you want to hear a less commercial side of fORMER, check out tracks like “Blue Divide” or “Head Light”, which have a more contemporary Jimmy Eat World feel.

Check out fORMER if you like SafetySuit, The Gaslight Anthem, or Get Up Kids."
