Gang Forward is one of Denver’s latest additions to the heavy rock scene. Since 2010, the band has honed their skills in creating fun and energetic live performances, while engaging fans with shredding guitar, ethereal vocals, and driving rhythms. Their debut album, “Secret Wars”, was released a year later in August 2011 under NLM Records in Nashville and has been warmly received by fans and cri...tics alike. Gang Forward’s unique blend of hard rock is indicative of influences such as Muse, Rage Against The Machine, and Incubus; however, their sound is anything but the same. Many songs are filled with progressive key changes and dynamic tempo shifts, showcasing a wide array of explosive musicianship.
Aaron Cooley, a Nashville native, is an exciting live performer and a fiery guitarist/vocalist. Searing tone and a ferocious appetite for acrobatic guitar solos are what to expect when you see the band holding court. Steering the rock anthemic is Randy Stindt, a versatile vocalist from Fresno, CA. Tinges of Chris Cornell, Martin Sexton, and Maynard James Keenan can be heard in Stindt’s refreshing addition to the foursome, often while demonstrating an additional percussive prowess on many different instruments during live performances. Drummer, Tyson Williams, and bassist, Greg Furuya sum up the rhythm section and drive the band with dynamic force. Hailing from Austin, TX, Williams blasts and grooves his way around the set, complimenting the distinctive technique and tone of Furuya, a Chicago-based guitarist turned bassist. This foursome is hungry to keep entertaining fans and creating music that pushes the boundaries of progressive rock.
