SOARE is an American Hard Rock/Metal band. They made their debut earlier this year with the single “A Curious Case of Mistaken Identity.” With that track they introduced their unique Metal blend of genres and subgenres. Since then, the hard-rocking three piece has dropped three additional singles. With each new release they delve further into their experiments combining guttural Death Metal scream vocals with Art-Rock complexity and melodic Alternative Rock composition.
“Super Nova (An Appetite for Lies)” is one of the band’s most recent releases. The song is an excellent example of the many sides to this dynamic group, from its classical piano intro and refrain to the Pantera-style Metal groove in the verse and the juxtaposition of Male screamo vocals and melodic female lead. Recently The Static Dive sat down (virtually) with the members of SOARE to talk about the new song, the band and the future.
