Former Planets were spontaneously birthed into the universe in the summer of 2014. All veterans of the Gainesville music scene, the five members have aligned to write meaningful, memorable songs and deliver energetic, high-quality live performances. They have also probably delivered pizza or chinese food to your house at least once. Guitarists Evan Johnson and Clay Young, (formerly of We the Invader), lead vocalist Jason Small (formerly of The Upside), bassist Korkut Genc and drummer Jeff Greaves (currently of Former Planets) will soon be known for their spirited blend of rock that draws on alternative rock, punk and emo influences. An album will be released in 2015 followed by performances across the region.
