The Forecast sing about straight highways and whiskey, small towns, giving up and gaining hope. From Peoria, Illinois, a downstate town that is dying by degrees comes this young rock band for whom a steadily declining economy and the narrowed options of their friends and family became fodder for songs that are devastating, bittersweet and dreamy. The high lonesome soprano of bassist Shannon Burns soars over the vocals of guitarists Dustin Addis and Matt Webb on songs that alternate from sweet harmonies and meandering guitars of classic rock to the breakneck intensity of indie rock and punk. In The Shadow of Two Gunmen shows off songwriting chops and southern-tinged, cathartic rock that will appeal to fans of bands like Rainer Maria, Ryan Adams and Wilco.
