Formed in April 2018, TrueShot is a four-piece metalcore band from New Hampshire.
Within a year of forming, the band released its debut single, “Purgatory”. From there, the band went on to release their debut EP, “Escape” on June 13, 2019.
With this EP laying the groundwork for the band, TrueShot continued to evolve and progress and hone their sound and showcased that with the release of “Paradigm” on March 13, 2020, marking, to that point, the most successful release from the band.
TrueShot then built off the momentum from "Paradigm" with their release of "Find Me, I'm Missing" on June 19, 2020 which saw even more success.
TrueShot blends the styles of the metalcore genre of old but with plenty of modern flairs, incorporating heavy chugs, technical riffs, high and low screaming vocals, clean vocals, relentless drum patterns and fills and, of course, hard-hitting breakdowns that listeners will be forced to move to.
TrueShot sets no limits on themselves stylistically.
Lyrically, TrueShot aims to write about experiences from the perspective of vocalist Richard Janvrin and encapsulate those raw emotions from those experiences with varying vocal ranges.
In 2020, listeners can expect more singles from TrueShot.
The members of the band consist of the following:
Richard Janvrin (Vocals)
Adam Levesque (Guitar/Clean Vocals)
Derek Mayo (Bass)
Anthony Gagnon (Drums)
FFO: As I Lay Dying, August Burns Red, Wage War and Fit for a King.
From the beggining
Where we are now
The band was intially formed back in April 2018. At the time, two friends, Richard and Qadry scoured Craiglist looking for fellow musicians in the New Hampshire area. There, they found Adam, who then contacted a childhood friend, Derek.
After playing around with band names, the band originally went with RareForm, but later changed to TrueShot.
Qadry departed the band in 2019, and TrueShot's new drummer, Anthony Gagnon, joined in the same year.
TrueShot recently released their second 2020 single, "Find Me, I'm Missing", following up their fellow 2020 release, "Paradigm".
We have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with bands such as The Browning, Betraying the Martyrs, Extortionist, Mothersound, Sentinels, Notions, Tetrarch, Attila, Crown the Empire, Gideon, HAWK, Veil of Maya, Lorna Shore, Carnifex, Oh, Sleeper, and Outline in Color.
