This band has no press


Will Oliver (guitar/vocals) founded the band alongside T.J. Jepson (bass) in late 2017, recruiting Tim Simmons on rhythm guitar (2017 - 2018) and Jesse Swieton on drums (2017 - 2019). Their first ever performance took place at 33 Golden Street in New London, CT on May 10th, 2018 to which they received a warm welcome to the scene. 
Over the next few months, they played gigs across the state of Connecticut and began work on their first demo, appropriately titled "Arcadia Forsaken Demo", released in late 2018. 
Around the time of its release, the band parted ways with original rhythm guitarist Tim and recruited Kai Stone in November of 2018. 
In spring of 2019, the band was ready to hit the stage once again with their new guitarist, debuting him at their performance at Cherry Street Station in Wallingford, CT on March 9th, 2019. Following the show was a slew of new opportunities, landing the band a gig at Toad's Place New Haven in May and an opening slot for internationally credited thrash metal band Warbringer at their show in New Jersey in October 2019. Around this time, Arcadia Forsaken released their updated demo titled "The Demo EP" to which saw much success in the local scene. 
In late October, Jesse Swieton announced his departure of the band and performed his final gig in his home town of Bristol at Bleachers Bar. The band has since moved forward with guitarist Kai Stone taking over drum duties and Angel Bird from Magnets For Maniacs filling in on guitar.
