Our Story

Fortress United is a heavy metal band from Manteca in the Central Valley of California. With a fierce energy that is an interfusion of traditional heavy, nu and power metal, their sound is as eclectic as the band members themselves. Having completed their EP "The Mask" in early 2016, Fortress United is busy busting their asses to get their music out to the world.
Over the two years that F.U. has been together, they have won two local battles of the bands. They played countless shows in 2015, opening for bands such as Hatriot and Hemlock and were nominated for a Modesto Area Music Award. Having signed to Dead Sea Records in April of 2016, Fortress United hit the road last summer to play with bands such as Attila, As Blood Runs Black and Taipan. Currently, Fortress United is ranked in the top ten on ReverbNation for Manteca metal music and was named the Bands4Bands Best New Band for 2016. 
There are many changes taking place right now for Fortress United. Nick, A.J. and Steph want to take a moment to let you know they ARE continuing to move forward with this project. More details coming soon. In the meantime, Fortress United thanks everyone who continues to support them and their music. It means the world to F.U.! And so new chapter begins….
