Furi (Foo-Ree) is a hardcore alternative band created in Late 2017 through early 2018. Born in Washington Heights, NYC. Deriving musical influences from bands such as Zebrahead, Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance, Rise Against, and Avenged Sevenfold, to name a few!

The adventure began with Brooklyns very own “The Gutter” bar, then The Well, The Knitting Factory, and the most recent adventure led them to Muchmores(another Brooklyn bar).

Its founding member Astro, with his melodic, explosive way of playing bass. Grew tired of following footsteps and joining bands. He sought out to create his own powerhouse of musicians with like minded influences!

Enter Joshua Bartholomew. Having a similar plan, Josh brought to the table fresh, hard-rock/melodic guitar licks. Together, they began their search for the key components to add to their group.

Shortly after the union of Astro and Josh, Roselio Mendoza and Brendan Castro joined in.

Roselio, with his groovy and hypnotic drums, will have your feet moving before you even have a chance to stop them! Don’t let him catch you off guard with his masterful word play. The man has bars!!

Brendan, with his enticing, emotionally fueled, poetic vocals and punk styled guitars, will have you singing along and asking for more!

Furi’s sound is best described as “In your face” and “out of control”, with hardcore riffs, melodic licks, and punk progressions fusing with heavy, muddy basslines and drums that’ll have you losing yourself to the rhythm of the music!!
