Honest Men – ‘Stuck!’

Austin’s alt/indie trio Honest Men’s latest single ‘Stuck!’ is considerable sample of its artistry: Solid rhythm, and energy, well balanced, dynamic vocals, addictive chorus and quite a few great great hooks to connect with!  

About Honest Men

Formed in 2016 after meeting at college in Waco, TX, frontman Seth Findley, guitarist Brooks Whitehurst, and drummer Zach Solomon set off to make a name for themselves. Cultivating a shimmering indie alternative rock sound of bold hooks, catchy melodies, vulnerability, and intention, the men took to the studio and the road the following years, releasing a handful of EP’s and singles while touring Texas and the surrounding states.

As their fan base grew, so did the bandmates themselves as they transitioned from college into adulthood, moving to Austin, TX while continuing to develop and mature their craft. As the world stood still in 2020, Honest Men locked themselves in the studio to write and record a career-defining sophomore album.

The year saw a re-release of the band’s discography into a singular album ‘I’m Okay’ (achieving over 9 million streams to date) and the completion of their sophomore album ‘Field of Vision’, set to release November 12th, 2021. Helmed by it’s lead single ‘A Spectrum’, the album explores the deeper side of humanity, love, loss, fear, and questioning, and showcases a more confident, mature sound that redefines the band while still holding true to what makes them Honest Men.
