Follow The Deceived, featured in last month's Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artists of the Month Article have won the inaugural Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artist of the Month competition after a poll of Ultimate-Guitar.com forum members. The results rendered Follow The Deceived as the winners, after the band garnered an impressive 50% of the vote, beating competition from both Satin Gum and the Remnant Kings.
Hope in Negative Spaces is an album that was almost never made. The band behind the record, Follow The Deceived, has been cursed by a start-stop characteristic unhelpful to any band hoping to build up any momentum. The band is the brain child of vocalist and guitarist, Mark Cruz , who inspires a sort of post-hardcore meets screamo blend of music that is always too heavy to be laughed at. So don't overlook Follow The Deceived.
Upon winning the competition, Follow The Deceived had this to say, We would like to thank all of our fans for their continued support, and, of course, everyone that voted for us on Ultimate-Guitar.com. It's a great honor to win the Unsigned Artist of the Month! Expect more from us soon in the coming months.
At the end of December, an article written about some of the best unsigned artists featured by Ultimate-Guitar.com in the past year or so, with the overall goal of crowning an Ultimate-Guitar.com Unsigned Artist of the Year. The winner shall be determined by a poll in the Ultimate-Guitar.com forums, more specifically, in The Pit; so you will have to be a UG member to vote for Ultimate-Guitar.com's first Unsigned Artist of the year!
