Really stoked that I was able to interview Chris Wethington and Billy Zimpleman of Softspoken! Unfortunately Logan, Garrett, and Zach couldn’t make it but we gave them a shout out any way. Softspoken is a 5 piece post-hardcore band hailing from Florence Kentucky who have been making great strides for a band that has only been around for less than a year!
My first encounter with Softspoken was back in 2016 when they opened up for previous podcast guest Light Treasons at Spinelli’s Downtown. Their sound was quite nostalgic, it reminded me of the glory days of early metalcore and I became an instant fan! The real cherry on top was their stage presence, they can really put on a show!
At the start of the interview you will hear a 15-20 second clip of the the new single, “Fix Myself” For the full song click here: Fix Myself
In this interview we talked about how Softspoken came to be, our tattoos, musical influences, signing to We Are Triumphant, recording with Cameron Mizell of Chango Studios, Chris’s time spent in Japan, and the really hard hitting question, “Do pineapples go on pizza?!?”
Make sure to also save the date for the release of their new debut EP Pathways out 3/17/17! Pre order at: Pathways on Itunes or Pathways pre order bundle! ____________________________________________________________________________________
9 months ago the Chris and Billy were over talking about Softspoken and how it all started. Fast forwarding to present day Softspoken has been touring, battling member changes and writing new material! The new members are Sam Scheuer on the vocals and Myka Meeks on the drums. You would think having two new guys would hinder the band’s progression but it has only helped skyrocket their sound and musicianship!
Despite some hardships the band is coming out with a brand new album and a new single titled “Begin Again” which you can listen to now!
