Introduce yourself and your music:
We are A Gentlemen’s Agreement – a four piece alternative metal band from Sydney, consisting of Luke Little [vocals/guitar] , James King [guitar], Andrew Martin [Bass] and Reece Little [Drums]. We fully formed in September 2012, recorded our EP ‘A Well Dressed Pig’ in January 2013 and only started playing gigs in February. We have only been in the live scene for 7 months now and we are proud of everything we have accomplished so far.
Describe your sound and lyric style
We like to think we have an original sound, although nothing is original these days. We think we got pretty close. Our sound is described as ‘Raw Metal’ with a few heavy punk riffs thrown in. Our lyric style is somewhat simple – screaming, growls and yelling – we want to start working on some more interesting vocal phrasing and lyrics and introduce backing vocals… FINALLY!
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
Our influences are all over the place between each band member, but in regards to our sound we draw inspiration from bands such as Deftones, Godsmack, System Of A Down and Parkway Drive. We are also inspired by life in general and the world around us. The world isn’t perfect which we use to our advantage when writing.
What are you working on now?
We are always working on new songs, every second or third gig we generally have a new song to share. We’re working towards our first full length album ‘Circus of War’ next year and our first music video in November for our song ‘Nobody’. Always busy!
Are you touring now? When/where?
At the moment we’re only doing shows in the Sydney/NSW area, but we will be planning an East Coast tour next year. Looking to hit up Melbourne, Brisbane and all venues between.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
A very loud and energetic performance! We love to perform and to have a good time. We’re always working on ways to make the next show even better. We want our fans to come back to our next show.
