Forgivers, New Jersey based band released a new track "Pretty Boys"

The band forgivers is made featuring members of The Gaslight Anthem, The Ratchets and Let Me Run ! They worked together on this project and released "Pretty Boys"!! Don't wait and check it out.

Mixing mainly British influences such as The Cure, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Clash, and Oasis, but infusing it with their own unique and distinctive dynamic, Forgivers have created a song that embraces a dark, muscular and shimmering psychedelic swagger, recalling some of the finest alt-rock of 120 Minutes-era.

There’s been an undeniable synchronicity to Forgivers from the beginning. If you believed in fate, you might even say it was meant to be. It all came about when Alex Rosamilia started talking to bassist Alex Levine about writing music together again, after the decade-plus they’d spent together in The Gaslight Anthem. When that band briefly broke its hiatus to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The ’59 Sound, the two Alexes realized how much they’d missed playing together, something Rosamilia told Ed Auletta, longtime guitar tech for My Chemical Romance and the owner of North End Recording, where Rosamilia had recorded his Dead Swords project a few years ago.

The two were catching up at a bar in Jersey City when Ed suggested that Jed Winokur, who had fronted New Jersey punk band The Ratchets, would be an ideal frontman. Neither had seen him for a while, but minutes after his name was mentioned, Winokur happened to walk past the pair in the street, which they all took as a fortuitous sign. Once told about the Alexes’ new project, Winokur was in. Rounding out the four-piece is drummer and recording engineer Trevor Reddell, who played in Let Me Run, D’Arcy and Dead Swords. It’s in Reddell’s garage – dubbed ‘Forgivers Lodge’ – that the four-piece eventually started a socially distant rehearsal once a week, carefully shaping the sound and aesthetic of the band.

Since recording "Some Future," a track recently praised by the likes of Rolling Stone, SPIN, NME, Kerrang!, Brooklyn Vegan, American Songwriter and more, Forgivers have been building up a catalogue of songs that are as timeless as they are thrilling, and which all four members are visibly, infectiously excited about.
