Northern Illinois based alternative metal band, Alborn has a sound that has been compared to Deftones or a heavier version of Alice in Chains. But, make no mistake, Alborn has created something unique, hard, and melodic.
Alborn is made up of Justin Taylor [guitar/vocals], Alex Raser [Drums/vocals], Zame Lewis [bass] and Nate Guske [guitar/vocals]. They formed in 2016 as a rock cover band but decided in 2018 to leave their cover band roots behind and focus on their originals.
In early 2020, Alborn played to a huge Quad City crowd at the Rust Belt with Buckcherry and Adelitas Way plus multiple shows with Sevendust, including a Champaign, IL sellout. This all has led to Alborn signing a distribution deal with Imagen Records and ADA (Warner Music). Their first single, Full Circle, received airplay locally and nationally, including Sirius XM's Octane and landing on Spotify's editorial "Rock Hard" playlist. Alborn’s second single, "Cause to Create" came out in late January 2021 and saw very similar success.
“Hindsight” is the next single, releasing June 25th and is the next chapter of Alborn. "We recently spent a lot of time reflecting on what we have created over the last few years and solidifying what it is that we want to be. We feel Hindsight is the best representation of our sound and style at this very moment." - Justin Taylor (Lead Vocals/Guitar)
The band’s fanbase is strong, travels relentlessly and grows with every performance. Alborn is currently making touring plans for late 2021. So far, they have already shared the stage with Badflower and Goodbye June and have dates on the calendar with the likes of Shinedown, Sevendust, Otherwise, Tommy Vext, Hinder and others.
