Brothers Of Craig

BandRockAlternative

Melodic rock that can be dark at times , but more often than not has a glimmer of hope attached.

Biography

Brothers Of Craig began life in the late-1980s. It was then that the band recorded their first demos in Yorkshire's Slaughterhouse Studios with producer Colin Richardson (who then worked with Joy Division, Sisters Of Mercy and The Mission and, in later years, has worked with Napalm Death, Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Cradle Of Filth, Trivium, etc) and also with producer Steve Harris (who has since produced and mixed for the likes of U2, The Automatic and Kaiser Chiefs). Brothers Of Craig's first single 'Tossing And Turning' earned the band a place in the Indie Charts and the opportunity to continue recording with such producers which led to the release of their second single 'The Colour Of Heaven'.
Despite deciding to split after their distribution company fell into administration in the early '90s, Brothers Of Craig are now back together with Jon Gerrard on vocals , Vinnie on guitar , Paul Martin on keys and Chris McSorley on drums. The band have been joined by former "The Exploited" and "Straw Dogs" bassist "Mick Flannery"
They are currently preparing to record their second album.
The third single "I Cant Take It Anymore" is up for grabs.
Almost a year in the making (what started out as a two song release ,eventually ended up as a five track EP)
