Biography

Formed Jan 2012 Peasant's King have already made their presence across the UK by gaining BBCR1 playlisted status with the track - Antidotes.

Peasant's King are from Pontypridd, South Wales, UK they are Daniel Evans - voice/guitar, Lewys Mann - bass, Rhodri Parry - guitar - Joshua Bowles - guitar and Harry Lee - drums. All except Harry are students in Cardiff, Harry is a climbing instructor.

They make epic anthemic indie pop - they write about love, life, hope and despair - their songs are cinematic in scope, with a strong rhthymic sense - as borne by the band's multi-cultural background - singer Dan is of Samoan descent whilst bassist Lewys hails from Trinidad & Tobago.

The band are set to follow in the tradition of exciting acts to emerge from Wales - (Manics, Stereophonics, Lostprophets) but with a different sound they make guitar music for the masses - with hooks like Coldplay, the use of strings and choirs akin to Elbow - Peasant's King are set for the global stage.
