Messgram is a Korean rock band formed in 2011. Their lineup is beautiful vocalist JiYoung Kim, intense screamo and FX-man Jahnny Shin, blazing guitarist YuShik Shin, powerful drummer Soojin Lee, and lively bassist Chanhyun Park. Messgram fuses and amalgamates thick heavy genre-bending elements and glistening drops of fem-vox into a unique sound potion of shred-tastic rhythmic sound—a perfect marriage of pop and metal.
The band was founded by Jahnny, Soojin, and YuShik, who immediately developed the band’s distinctive sound. With the addition of JiYoung in 2015 and Chanhyun in 2016, Messgram and their vibe is poised to be the next big thing in rock.
Messgram exploded on the Korean metal scene with their signature mix of heavy and screamo laced with female vocals with their 2014 debut EP, This is a Mess, But It’s Us.
They also released the 2015 single “Patterns,” Eternal Craving EP in 2016, and their first full-length album Cheers for the Failures in 2020, which proved to be a breakout success achieving a 2021 Korean Music Award nomination. In addition, their latest six-song EP Acoustiverse was released in 2021. Cheers for the Failures peaked at #4 on the K-Indie Chart and #5 on the Japanese weekly DiscUnion Sales Chart in May 2020. It also received critical acclaim in BURRN! Magazine.
Messgram’s second full-length album will be released in early 2022.
