Austin, TX female-fronted pop punk outfit Forever Starts Today have announced their signing to Third String Records, which is run under the operation of Mike Ziemer (So What?! Music Festival, Band Engage, Third String Productions). Additionally, the band also announced their debut album Always Hope will be out August 25th. The album was produced and recorded by Joseph Milligan at ORB Studios and mixed/mastered by Paul Leavitt.
Ziemer had to this to say about signing the band,
“I first discovered Forever Starts Today at SXSW in 2017. I was hooked the second I saw Christina (vocalist) standing on the bar and walking around as she sang every word flawlessly. It was their high energy performance, drive, and great songwriting that drew me in. Fast forward a few months later and I offered them a deal with my label, Third String Records. Their album Always Hope is incredible and I can’t wait for people to hear it!”
The band continued by stating,
“Signing with Third String Records is such an incredible honor and amazing opportunity. Beyond opportunities to play events like So What?! Fest, Third String is well integrated all over the country, and we cannot wait to make the most of our opportunities to meet and interact with friends and fans from all over. We look forward to seeing what Mike, Blake, and the rest of the Third String team have in store for us!”
To celebrate the signing announcement, the band have unleashed the first song with “Optimist” and its accompanying music video.
