Spoken is an American Rock Band originally formed in Fayetteville, AR.  Spoken's current members consist of original member Matt Baird, along with JR Bareis (Love and Death), Dylan Levernoch, and Jared Wisner.

In 2023, Spoken signed with the newly formed XOVR Records which was started by Brian "Head" Welch and his longtime personal manager David W. Williams.  Spoken is currently awaiting the March 15th, 2024 release of their 10th studio album titled Reflection

“I am excited to work on our first XOVR release with Spoken, featuring our brother JR from Love and Death.  Led by our bro Matt Baird, Spoken has been one of the hardest working bands in rock 'n’ roll; they have an incredible reputation for grinding it out because they love what they do so much. I can't wait for everyone to hear Spoken's latest release, it is truly an epic album!”  - Brian “Head” Welch

Reflection is sure to appeal to all audiences. This record consists of melody, aggression, thought provoking lyrical content, guitar riffs and drums that compliment each and every aspect of songwriting.

It will have been seven years since the release of the last Spoken album when Reflection is finally released in March.  There hasn't been this much excitement around a Spoken release since 2013’s Illusion.  Reflection will surely be a fan favorite and should incite an army of new Spoken fans to form.

After Leaving Tooth & Nail, they re-released Echoes in 2008 and emerged from a short hiatus in 2013 for Illusion, their first album of new material in six years. A successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015 helped the band release their eighth album, Breathe Again, on Artery Records. In early 2017 the band dropped a pair of singles, "I Will Not Fade" and "Stronger" in anticipation of the release of their aptly named ninth album, IX, which was released in that September.
