We would describe our music as… alternative rock and have been compared to the great Nu metal bands of the early 90’s.
Background info: We are 4 best mates who started as a cover band, the covers slowly stopped as we started writing our own material taking influences from The Goo Goo Dolls and Alterbridge and we have never looked back since. In our first year we reached the semi finals of Live and Unsigned which is a competition only for bands/groups/solo artists who write their own songs. We have had a great journey since we started, playing at YouthBeatz twice, last year supporting The Hoosiers, playing Comlongon Rocks twice, playing in Glasgow, and we made it to the final three bands in the Westsound radio competition to play at Wickerman festival’s main stage. Later this year we will be heading to the Brickyard in Carlisle. These are only a few adventures we’ve had during our time and they have only helped fuel our enthusiasm to record more material and get back on the road.
