Bio

In 2013 FLASH BANG BAND release their acid tinged, garage-pop full-length debut on Brighton's Brighthelmstone Promotions’ label arm ‘At The Helm Records’.

BIOGRAPHY _>
The energetic power trio have just 3 ambitions; to make each day count, inspire positive philosophy in others, and to enjoy themselves. These translate into playing every show like it's their last, writing songs that really inspire while staying true to their roots, and holding onto their integrity.

The band's sound developed while slogging it out on the UK live circuit, starting locally and making fans of Brighton’s sound engineers and the droves of other local bands.

They have fully embraced the DIY approach; producing their own videos, making their own t-shirts and programming their own live shows (including one on a moving double decker bus).

Flash Bang Band quickly gained the support of local promoters and the media (including BBC Introducing South, Amazing Radio, Juice FM, Radio Reverb, Kooba Radio and BeatCast TV) and national support is building steadily.
