Formed on the Isle of Wight in 2018, THEORIST emerged from the remnants of local metal bands, bringing together three-quarters of the core band. This pivotal moment shaped their distinct sound, a fusion of their talents and influences. Comprising Andrew Rose, Keller Maxwell, Luke Thomas, and Luke Young, the members had nurtured their bond for years before merging their skills to craft a unique sonic identity while paying homage to their inspirations.
During THEORIST's early years, collaborations with local artists played a pivotal role in shaping their current sound. Despite a limited local music scene, their guitarist and producer Luke Thomas' home studio became the crucible where their sound evolved. Drawing from diverse influences including Trivium, Slipknot, Periphery, and Tesseract, the band meticulously worked on demos and reworked songs, refining their craft until they felt ready to embark on a journey to share their message and music.
In late 2019 and early 2020, THEORIST embarked on live shows with local artists, only to be met with the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced them to adapt their plans. Undeterred, they continued to write and meticulously assemble what they considered the perfect introduction: their debut EP. Collaborating with artists from the south coast, they finally unleashed their debut EP, "PERCEPTION," in February 2023. Garnering enthusiastic feedback within their local music scene, their debut music video for "Paralysed" quickly amassed nearly 20,000 views.
Unfazed by challenges, THEORIST relentlessly pushes the boundaries of their sound, gracing stages across the UK alongside fellow emerging bands. With new music on the horizon, the band remains steadfast in their pursuit of musical innovation and growth.
