Introduce yourselves- where are you from and who plays what?

Connor Garland – Lead Guitar and Vocals
Jonny Lee – Bass
Tim While – Drums
Describe your sound and lyric style
We have quite an aggressive sound but incorporate melody and catchy riffs, lyrics and rythms in to our songs. Our lyrics are about things that affect our lives or things that go through our heads. They are down to earth kind of lyrics, about things that are a part of daily life. It depends what is in our heads when we write them really.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
We all share a love of music. I think at the end of the day, if you’re not doing it because you love it, you shouldn’t be doing it at all. We have strong influences from bands like Lower than Atlantis, Foo Fighters, Nirvana. We like to think we are doing what comes to us though. It definitely feels like our music.
What are you working on now?
Our first E.P is called ‘Live Astray’. It has 5 tracks on it. The title comes from a desire to break away from societies norms and do whatever makes you happy. Be the leader of the sheep instead of following because you feel you have to. It will be available for £1.99 (with any extra donations) from our website www.compriseromise.co.uk or at our gigs.
Are you touring now? When/where?
We will continue gigging as much as possible, we have a gig at Beg, Borrow & Steal in Sheffield on 29th March and play regular shows in Liverpool. Check out our social networks or websites for more dates.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
Sweat, fun, anger. We don’t like it when people don’t join in and get involved. That’s what going to a gig is about after all, surely?
Where can people check out your music?
You will be able to find some form of link to our music from any of these social networking sites:
