"BE WELL is a new band with deep roots. Musically, it's emotionally gripping with an expertly-executed blend of Melodic Hardcore with notes of 90's Post-hardcore influence," explains their newly-minted Discogs page. BE WELL were, seemingly, formed at the top of 2020 and are signed to Equal Vision Records and released a self-titled 7-inch EP earlier this year. BE WELL's line-up consists of frontman Brian McTernan, bassist Aaron Dalbec, drummer Shane Johnson, and guitarists Mike Schleibaum & Peter Tsouras. Collectively, BE WELL's players either are or were members of Ashes, Bane, Battery, Beasts of No Nation, Biology, Converge, Daltonic, Darkest Hour, Fairweather, Mancake, Miltown, Only Crime, Ten Yard Fight, and Velocity Engine. Brian "Fury" McTernan, additionally, owns and operates his own DC/Baltimore-based recording studio, Salad Days Studio, as well as off-site locations Salad Days 2-4.
Brian Fury has produced, mixed, recorded, engineered, etc. albums for Angel Du$t, Circa Survive, Cave In, Floorpunch, Dave Hause, Hot Water Music, Madball, The Movielife, Piebald, Senses Fail, Strike Anywhere, and Thrice. Following the mass success of their self-titled EP, BE WELL have announced their debut full-length, The Weight & The Cost. Ahead of said album release later this summer, BE WELL have released its lead-off single, "Confessional." It's a unique blend of Melodic Hardcore and 90's reminiscent Post-hardcore with sonic allusions to Embrace, Minor Threat, and Rites of Spring. "Confessional" is now available on streaming services with pre-orders for The Weight & The Cost now available from Equal Vision Records. There are additional muti-colored vinyl variants available directly from Revelation Records, End Hits Records, and BE WELL's own newly-launched The Weight & The Cost album site.
