Forts Like Vana are a four piece alternative group from Nashville who go by the names of Logan (vocals), Nito (bass), Diego (drums) and Derek (guitar).
The band formed in early 2018, they already have a substantial global following. Having released their debut EP ‘This + This = That’ last year new music is hopefully to be expected soon!
I managed to ask them a few questions about their music, fans and tour life. Read below to find out more!
What is the origin of your band name?
The story behind the name hasn’t been released, it’s top secret at the moment because its a pretty wild story.
How would you describe the sound of Forts Like Vana?
The best way to describe it is just us telling our stories and experiences in the environment we live in. We give 100% of ourselves in each song and that’s what we love to do.
As a band, who are your biggest influences?
We all listen to different genres of music so it’s really hard to say where our inspiration comes from. To us, that’s what really makes FLV sound like FLV because we take our inspirations and experiences and throw them in each song.
What is your favourite song to perform live?
We all have love going crazy live, but my favorite at the moment is TKO, it keeps me on my toes – Diego
Out of the places you’re touring, where do you think will be the loudest?
The goal is to blow speakers at every venue and get away with it. Lets see where it happens first.
Do you have any pre-show rituals?
Aside from blasting music in the greenroom, making drinks, having the room packed out with friends and fans partying not really. We do like a little pep talk before we get up on stage too.
Can we expect new music soon?
We’re going to the studio this Tuesday (April 30th!)
Have you ever had any funny fan experiences?
We love interactions so everyday there’s tons of funny moments with fans. They are all great!
And lastly, is there anything you’d like to say to your fans?
Y’all give us life and we cant wait to see you take over the world.
