The Things We Were is a flame-throwing Pop Punk band established in the city of brotherly love in early 2018. The Things We Were is dual vocalists Dylan Garforth (guitarist) and Thomas Jay (guitarist), Collin Simar (bass) and Jake Siegel (drums). With deep rooted influences such as blink-182, A Day To Remember and Neck Deep, catchy riffs, punchy drums and memorable, infectious melodies that you can binge listen to all day, the wide-ranged outfit is definitely a good listen for people of all ages and tastes.
Their debut album Cloudy Kids was produced by Andy Karpovck (A Day To Remember, 408, Magnolia Park). To date the band is over one million streams on all platforms and have received airplay on rock and alternative stations all over the country. They also nabbed prominent features in publications such as Alternative Press and Earmilk. The Things We Were also made the semifinals in the International Songwriting Competition with their debut track “Plaid Shoes and Tattoos.” They’re already hard at work on their second full length release at the Audio Compound, a Florida studio owned and operated by members of the #1 charting rock band A Day To Remember.
