Spoken was formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1996. With the release of their first album, On Your Feet (1997) and continuing through their second record, …What Remains (1999), The Spoken sound was a combination of rap meets metal, and a bit of melodic rock. On their third album in 2000, Echoes of the Spirit Still Dwell, they began to get much heavier.
They have evolving their style further during the years. With each album the band grew to inherently be themselves, and widen their overall appeal, while gaining more and more fans in the process.
2015 marks eighteen years since the bands debut release. On Dec 11th, 2015, they released the new album Breathe Again.
