August’s unsigned band of the month, Watch Them Fly are a four-piece metalcore line up from Minnesota.
Founded in 2012, Watch Them Fly has gone through several re-shuffles before reaching their current line up:
Vocals: Paul Reichstadt
Guitar: Corey Sanders & Nick Perkins
Though currently playing mainly around America’s midwest, the group are also hoping to move onto national tours soon. So far their touring highlight has been opening for Kill Switch Engage.
Taking inspiration from Nirvana, Led Zepplin, Scary Kids Scaring Kids and Underoath, Watch Them Fly mix traditional metalcore screamo with stripped back melodies and guitar riffs to highlight the heavy vocals.
When they’re not practicing in Corey’s basement, these four like to play disc golf together and enjoy some good wine. Is that what the kids call getting shitfaced these days?
At the moment they are fitting everything around the band and hustling to get signed. They say the hardest thing about being unsigned is funding gigs and moving merch.
Watch Them Fly have several labels that they would like to sign with and judging by the speed they’re gaining online fans and followers, it’s not going to be long before they score one.
