"“DISTRICT MYTH know simply how to write a good song. Perfect clockwork comes together. End your album search with District Myths and say I knew them even before they were famous.""

DISTRICT MYTH punchy pop-rock played with a slightly progressive touch, could well create its way into the mainstream, but it can provide a reasonable level of drama and authentic emotion to be original. Meaningful songs, the lovely instrumentation, and the good feeling of the band with catchy, but still original melodies show incredibly strong songwriting, acting at no point in the least clumsy or forced, but as perfect clockwork coming together. Whether it sticks to more calm tunes like "Salvi's Tree", straight rocking clubs songs like the great "Unrequited" whose anthemic chorus remains in the listener's head or pompous anthems such as "Sold Your Soul (For An Once Of Gold)" which is completely self-confident in its arrangement, only time will tell.
DISTRICT MYTH know simply how to write a good song. So who is in search of a melodramatic but somewhere positive and completely pathos-free album can end his search for DISTRICT MYTHS safely and all the while you can say "I knew them even before they were famous."

""The District Myths’ fresh take on progressive rock is as catchy as it is aggressive." (Nathan Greenberg Big Cheese Magazine)"

“The District Myths’ fresh take on progressive rock is as catchy as it is aggressive. The Brighton quartet works in piano to compliment crunchy beats and floating guitar riffs, like the band’s first single ‘Unrequited’, which has an accompanying homemade music video. The vocal work is also impressive, revealing the District Myths’ ability to bare their teeth and grind out choruses, while also showing restraint and allowing softer phrases and silences to punctuate their sound.” - Nathan Greenberg (Big Cheese Magazine)


"This band is definitely worth checking out. (Martin Hudson editor of Classic Rock Society on the band and the self title debut album)"

“This band is worth checking out. Driven guitar parts but with good use of pianos show District Myths is not just about how fast or the loud the music can be. This is energetic rock with more of a leaning to mainstream pop rock than conventional prog. The self-titled debut is a good first stepping stone. Let see what they can do with album number two” - Martin Hudson (editor of Classic Rock Society on the band and the self title debut album)


"This could be the biggest British prog-rock band of this decade! (Tony Fernandez, Drummer for Rick Wakeman, the Strawbs and Ruthless Blues)"

“I love what I hear and see. Great songs, clever lyrics and some excellent musical arrangement. This could be the biggest British prog-rock band of this decade!” - Tony Fernandez (Drummer for Rick Wakeman, the Strawbs and Ruthless Blues)


"This will be a band to watch in the coming year. They are truly individual (Classic Rock presents Progressive)"

“These Londoners show their ability to be complex yet instant. There’s an audible connection to the neo-progressive movement, but the harmonies and alternate rock moments also ensure they offer something extra. Their self-titled debut proves that this will be a band to watch in the coming year. They are truly individual.” - Classic Rock presents Progressive

District Myths were formed with the ambition to create a new style of progressive rock. The Band have played over 200 live shows working with LOUT Promotions, Brighton’s biggest promoter, playing sold out gigs at notable prestiges Sussex venues such as the Haunt and Concorde 2; supporting the likes of Exit 10 and Forever Never.
