Forq Tour

Forq is an instrumental quartet with an aggressive sound and a penchant for sonic exploration. This all-star band based in New York has just completed their third album - Thr?q - due for release on August 4, 2017.  Originally founded by keyboardist Henry Hey (David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Jeff "Tain" Watts) and bassist Michael League (Grammy-winning founder of Snarky Puppy), Forq is joined by guitarist Chris McQueen (Snarky Puppy, Foe Destroyer, Bokantť) and drummer Jason ĎJTí Thomas (Roy Hargroveís RH Factor, Marcus Miller, DíAngelo). Their group sound draws from various musical paths of itís members, whether itís Jasonís swampy grooves and shuffles, Chrisí singular sonic approach to guitar, Henryís zeal for unique keyboard sounds and twisted ear candy, or Michaelís driving world-influenced grooves.  The band pushes further down the sonic rabbit hole with the stunning new material on Thr?q.
