American rock singer and songwriter Josh T. Romero was born and raised in “the Land of Enchantment”—Albuquerque, New Mexico—where he lives today with his wife and three children. He is the lead vocalist of Only Fables (a hardcore punk band formed during quarantine), and is in the process of recording his debut solo EP, illustrating his range from hardcore to alternative, and indie rock. The 6 track EP produced by Brett Bronner is scheduled for release in April 2021.

 

Romero combines elements of doom, hardcore punk, and black metal, creating a unique atmosphere for a vocally aggressive and melodic sound, with musical influences like Emma Ruth Rundle, Chelsea Wolfe, and This Will Destroy You, to vocal influences like He Is Legend’s Schylar Croom, The Contortionist’s Michael Lessard, and Bring Me The Horizon’s Oliver Sykes. 

Mitch Horowitz (PEN Award-winning occult historian) calls it “PMA with maximum impact.”

 

As a child, he remembers driving to school with his mother and singing Dean Martin and Neil Diamond songs at the top of their lungs. Throughout his teenage years, he was influenced by bands like AFI, Norma Jean, The Chariot, He Is Legend, and Blindside. He picked up his father’s acoustic guitar around the age of 13 and began trying to write his own songs.

 

Romero’s first single, Martyr was released in Marh, 2021. The EP, One Last Great Attempt, produced by Brett Bronner, released on streaming platforms May 7th, 2021.  For more news and updates, follow Josh T.

Only Fables

button pins-02.png

Starting during quarantine (7.2020), Brett Bronner and Josh T. Romero worked from a distance to create the esoteric crust punk that you hear today. Only Fables (named from the line in the Hermetica “O Egypt, Egypt, there will remain of thy religion only fables”) brings elements of hardcore punk, black metal, crust, and doom. Though their “shit is crushing”, Only Fables stands for self-direction and personal liberty with compassion. This “music for the revolt” is based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
