Introduce yourself and your music:
We are a 3-piece band based in Cardiff, Wales; drawn together from ex-Attack Attack members and a little drummer boy from the sticks. We bring a brand of rock music which seems to have been misplaced over the past few decades. We bring back a style of passionate energised rock music that consists of love for what we do and the reason music should be made in the first place.
How would you describe your sound and lyric style?
Pure rock music with catchy choruses. We’re doing it for ourselves and not for what will sell a million records.
Who are your main influences?
Nirvana/Pearl Jam/Foo Fighters/Bad Religion. Anything with a real sound and can engrave the passion, blood, sweat and tears into its final outcome.
What are you working on now?
We are completing our album, reviewing the final mixes and preparing for it to be launched in September. Then we’ll tour the album and spread the word.
Are you touring now?
We’re not on tour currently, though we have been touring hard the last year. Now we will have a little bit of space to write the second album, prepare for the launch of the first and just enjoy it really. It’s good to have a break, but after a short amount of time you get the itch to be back on the road.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
You will never get a half-assed performance. 3 guys enjoying what they do, pouring waves of energy out into the venue and maybe even a little crowd participation; we know they want to get involved.
Where can people check out your music?
If you want to check out our music subscribe to our Youtube channel, or buy our e.p from our merch page. Get a taster before the album drops. You will not be disappointed.
