Biography

“An impressive British triumph” – METAL HAMMER
“Brawn, brain, great songs and fascinating hidden depths” – KERRANG
“Destined for greatness” – ROCK SOUND

There are precious few British metal bands that could count nationwide critical acclaim, two performances at the legendary Download festival, a live session at London’s famed Maida Vale Studios by invite of BBC Radio One and a thriving career in Canada as mere notches on the proverbial bedpost.

Truth be told, most bands would probably view such achievements as career pinnacles, but for Brighton, England’s JOHNNY TRUANT these are all just pieces of a greater puzzle.

With two albums under their belt – 2002’s ‘The Repercussions Of A Badly Planned Suicide’ and 2005’s stunning ‘In The Library Of Horrific Events’ – Johnny Truant have relentlessly toured the UK, Europe and Canada alongside the likes of Alexisonfire, Killswitch Engage, Cancer Bats, As I Lay Dying, Fear Factory and Stone Sour to name but a few; not to mention their consecutive appearances at Donington in 2005 and 2006, the latter of which was a revelatory, second stage triumph for the quintet.

With ‘In The Library Of Horrific Events’ having asserted the bands true musical potential and cemented their status as one of the UK’s most important metal bands, the time has now come for the next part of that Johnny Truant puzzle: the quintet are currently hard at work writing their third album, a record that will see them take a sonic step forward in their musical explorations toward a more mature, progressive sound.

A new chapter is beginning for Johnny Truant. You still have your limbs, be sure you catch up.
