New song “I Against Me” out now!

Founded as a solo passion project by guitarist Chris Wethington while living abroad in Japan, Softspoken transformed into a fully-fledged band in 2016 shortly after his return to the US. They released their first EP “Pathways” – produced by Cameron Mizell (see: Sleeping With Sirens, Memphis May Fire) – in 2017, and have continued to blur the lines between post-hardcore, metalcore, and alternative rock since.

The band’s sophomore release, 2019’s “Deaf Perception” – produced by Matt Goldman (see: Underoath, As Cities Burn, etc.) – landed within the Top 20 on two different Billboard charts; but it was their third release in 2021’s “Where the Heart Belongs” with hit tracks “Sleight of Hand” and “Bones” that fully established Softspoken within the greater core scene.

Over the past seven years, Softspoken has toured across the US and supported acts such as Eyes Set To Kill, Makari, Nonpoint, Picturesque, A Skylit Drive, Until I Wake; has collaborated with artists such as Rory Rodriguez of Dayseeker (“I Feel Fire”), and ALESTI (“Closer”); and made festival appearances at Welcome to Rockville (2021), Rock Fest (2024), and Havoc Fest (2024).

Dedicated to writing impassioned music that reinforces the idea of being true to yourself, and not letting others determine your self-worth, Softspoken show no sign of slowing down any time soon.
