Meet The Band
"Surprisingly the band is still unsigned, but I can’t see it staying that way for much longer."
- Powerplay Magazine -
“Whoever said sleaze was dead certainly hasn’t stumbled across these guys. They will reaffirm your faith in hairspray and tight leather/ripped denim. Happily losing yourself in the swirl of love and lust lyrics shredding guitars and the debauched lifestyle of sex, strippers and whisky.”
- Rebel Yell-
The 5 Piece hailing from Kent formed back in late 2011 set on joining the ever-growing resurgence of new wave sleaze rock and glam metal bands in the UK.
Heavily Influenced by the bands of the late 1980's sunset strip movement including bands like Hanoi Rocks, Motley Crue, Poison, Cinderella, Guns N Roses, Skid Row, Ratt and Warrant the band set out writing their first E.P 'Love Bomb Ticking' released in the summer of 2013, (No imagination needed to guess what that means) set on creating a heavier, raw sound whilst sticking to the stereotypical 80's themes.
Having had a successful response to the E.P from the local underground music scene in Kent the guys set their eyes on releasing their first album. With this goal in mind, they headed back to the writing room and through a gruelling years work came out with 7 tracks for the new album with a much heavier and grittier sound having drawn on Motorhead and AC/DC's work as the main inspiration for the album.
In late 2014 the band replaced their second guitarist with another local guitarist who added a new sound to the mix having been influenced by other bands from that time such as Dokken, Danger Danger, Whitesnake, Firehouse and Winger ultimately with a light more melodic approach. Shortly after the band spent the next year recording the album, merchandising and building up hype for the album. In late 2015 their goal was complete they had released their first album 'Addictive' shortly followed by a short tour of the south east to promote it.
Ever growing and with a new member in place the 5 piece set their eyes on reaching a bigger audience and spent the next year gigging around the UK expanding their reach to London, Nottingham, Brighton and Birmingham. As well as playing with the popular 1980's glam metal band 'Tigertailz' at the Underworld, Camden in April 2016.
2017 brought new targets for the group as they pushed to write more professional material for a second album having taken on advice from lecturers. They also spent the year preperating their first ever full UK tour which took place over two weeks in August 2017. The tour was a huge success having sold most of the merchandise taken with them and having made friends with the german power metal band 'Neophyte' who accompanied them around the UK!
2017 also put into effect the biggest show to date the band had done having played a set at Bloodstock Open Air Festival which went down a treat with the audience! (Thankyou once again Bloodstock Festival!)
2017 also saw a new single released "Nocturnal Beauty" which is an indicator as to what fans can expect in the second album due to be released in 2018! Bigger Hooks, Catchier melodies, Harmonies galore and a new sound from the band still in keeping with their roots!
In August 2018 the band played the Hard Rock Hell Sleaze festival in Sheffield! Alongside bands like L.A Guns, Tigertailz, Midnite City, Shiraz Lane, Toxic Rose and Santa Cruz!
In early August 2018 the band also supported 'Doyle' from the legendary horror punk band 'The Misfits.'
In September 2019 the band are due to release their long awaited second album "When The Lights Go Out!' this record has more hooks, more melodies and more harmonies to sink your teeth into than ever before. Release date September 13th!
