The Ones You Forgot is a pop rock band from Brick, NJ that was formed after long-time friends and guitarists Ferdinand Benauro and Matt Thompson noticed remarkable covers on Instagram from vocalist Jenna Bruno. When the three had the chance to play together, they realized they were in the perfect spot to start a band and rounded out the group with the addition of Justin Rodman on drums and Lance Nelson on bass. The Ones You Forgot kicked off their debut release in 2015 with Peaks & Valleys; however, it wasn’t until their "Make It Out Alive” single release in late 2016 that solidified their sound and structure. Drawing inspiration from acts including Paramore, State Champs, and All Time Low, the band combined their backgrounds to cultivate the diversity heard through their music. 
 Taking some time to perfect their sound, the band spent the following year writing new music and playing shows, opening for acts such as Boys Like Girls, Four Year Strong, Never Shout Never, and Seaway, among others. Now the band has returned with a brand new EP, Too Afraid To Say, released on June 29, 2018. Produced and mixed by Rob Freeman (Armor For Sleep, Hit The Lights), the EP tells a story of the elements that we are all afraid of, but too reluctant to vocalize to a loved one, a friend, or even yourself. Vocalist Jenna Bruno shares, “We want our listeners to know that feeling scared or vulnerable is okay, and everyone has their own unique way of overcoming it when the time is right.”
