ARISE. SORT OUT. OVERCOME.
Sortout. Creating moments. Defining live music.
Sortout is an Austrian metalcore band which was founded 2008 in Satteins (Vorarlberg) by Benjamin Herter (Vocals) and Simon Lorenzi (Drums). The band’s name stands for the ups and downs they have gone through and never to stop before you sorted everything out.
The band began to create their own songs in 2011. 2013 the first EP "Shadow Slave" was released. The first single "Nothing to Lose"followed 2014 and the first music video "An Ember Awakes" in the end of 2015. In early 2016 they released their first full-length album "Burden of Memories" containing both singles.
But this was also a time of farewells, retreats and new beginnings. Line-up changes became a part of the progress of the band. Most of this now belongs to history, but the memories made with great shows and bands such as Machine Head, Trivium, Bullet for my Valentine, Amon Amarth, etc. are going to stay forever.
Since 2018 a lot has changed.
With Michael Geuze (Guitars) and André Hammerer (Drums) the new musical basis, and with founding member Benjamin Herter the new lyrical basis has been found. With Aaron Schedler (Guitars) and Günter Meusburger (Bass) another two creative minds joined. Together they are now specifying ideas, structures and arrangements and keep on constantly working for their ideas to become reality.
The Second album is going to be out 2020.
Music is passion - passion is to live in the moment. Sortout creates moments.
Their musical style could be roughly described as metalcore, but the sound has a lot more different aspects in it. It is the result of various musical backgrounds of each of the members which is defining Sortout today. With marching drums, knife-edged guitar riffs, forceful shouts and catchy clean vocals, they create their very own, exceptional and unmistakable sound.
"Our true home is the moment we live in".
