Memorist so named due to frontman Jon’s inability to forget – are a six-piece alternative metal outfit that craft powerful emotional journeys for the listener, through Jon’s personal experiences and perceived injustices. Layered in satisfying atmospheric textures and driving choruses, Memorist are experts in creating tension only to explode into a salvo of memorable melodies and lyrics to identify with. Influenced by the likes of Deftones, Northlane and Hans Zimmer, and having already garnered a wealth of recognition from fans, industry and contemporaries alike, Memorist have enjoyed the position of “Featured Artist of the Week” on Alex Baker’s Fresh Blood show on Kerrang! Radio along with numerous plays of their six initial singles by the presenter. The band have featured on live streams from Tesseract’s Dan Tompkins and Fit For a King’s Ryan Kirby and have over 1.5 million combined YouTube views across their five music videos, and approximately 1.8 million streams on Spotify alone (with a monthly listenership of over 105,000 active fans).
