Prog-Metallers FORMING THE VOID sign with Ripple Music | Work on their follow up to this year's RIFT to begin in early 2019

"Their fourth album Rift is epic in scale, replete with windswept hooks and skyscraping vocals, but it also delivers heavy metal thunder in abundance [...] It's immense - and immensely satisfying."

"Forming The Void are set to crush all-comers with this follow up to their much lauded third album Relic."

"Crunching stoner riffs with trippy lyrics that speak of mythical winged beasts, secret epiphanies..."

"Forming the Void stake their claim as the pre-eminent stoner/doom band from the state with their second effort, Relic, a sterling collection of hook-laden riffs and clean vocals..."

"Melding their influences, which range from Mastodon and The Sword, to Soundgarden and YOB, Forming The Void's riffs summon a sense of adventure."

Ripple Music is thrilled to announce the signing of one of 2018's biggest and best breakout acts, Forming the Void. Following the release of last year's critically acclaimed album, Relic, Louisiana's preeminent prog warlocks caused a storm across the planet earlier this year with their much-lauded follow-up, Rift.

"We're stoked to be working with Ripple Music!" explains guitarist James Marshall. "We got to hang out with Todd Severin at Psycho Las Vegas. It gave us the opportunity to spend a lot of time chatting about everything from medical problems to our guilty pleasure songs. It's an honour to be a part of the Ripple Family and we're looking forward to making music with them."

Originally formed in 2013 in Lafayette - a place with an impressive reputation for raising underground rock into realms of the unknown - Forming The Void became one of the city's most talked about bands of 2017. With the release of their third album Relic (voted album of the year on Heavy Planet), their colossal and atmospheric sound summoned the towering hard rock riffs and progressive influence of bands like Mastodon, Baroness and Torche. A distinctive sound that not only marked them out as ones to watch, but a sound that promptly earned them recognition as ambitious and gifted players, capable of producing, "Crunching stoner riffs with trippy lyrics that speak of mythical winged beasts, secret epiphanies..."

"I couldn't be more thrilled to welcome Forming the Void to the Ripple Family," explains Severin. "Obviously, they released one of the best albums of the year this year, and dominated the Doom Charts for months on end, but it really was seeing them lay waste to the stunned audience at Psycho Las Vegas that blew me away. Amazing musicians and amazing people. The best still lies ahead with this band!"
