Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records this week:
The Less Fortunate (US) Metal | Metalcore | Nu Metal
The Less Fortunate is a 6 piece metal/metalcore/nu metal band from Joplin Missouri (SouthWest Missouri) which was formed in 2016 the band and was composed by founding (and still active members), Logan Kelley (Percussion), Bill Cottrill (Bass), Cory Taunton (Vocals), Dalton Golden (Guitar) and Blanca Molinero (Vocals). Starting to play live shows in 2017, the band gained attention for their dual fronted male/female vocalists. This allowed the band to fuse melodic chorus’s with a high energy stage performance to separated them from other bands.
Not long after breaking into the local scene, the band released their 1st studio track titled We Will Rise on March 21st 2017. Over the next year, The Less Fortunate focused heavily on playing live shows around the 4 state area (Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas) and building a solid fan base across the region. The band returned to the studio and worked with producer Kevin Brooks for their 2nd studio track titled Oculus on May 5th 2018.
After releasing their official label (TraumaSphere Records) debut single Alive on July 14th 2018, the band continued work with producer Kyle Simpson to record their debut album which is set for release in 2019 via Sliptrick Records along with with their 1st official music video.
