BandRockAlternative

For a basic summation, we are an Alternative Rock group that pulls in the modern sounds of today, and mixes it with an old rock feel. This being said, our songs have quite a varied feel, going from our upbeat indie based songs, to our brash, and maybe quite dark sounding heavier rock tracks.

Biography

Originally the band formed as a 4 piece back in 2010 for a charity event in school. That fourth member was Erin McGregor who was our lead vocalist. After the event we decided we wanted to continue and try make something of our talent. We didn't mess around either and quickly we began to churn out our own material. February 2011 saw us record 5 of our own tracks. Unfortunately these tracks were poorly done and we never got our money's worth. Late August we made the difficult decision to part ways with our singer and continue as a 3 piece. We felt that her voice wasn't suited to our style and we needed more male input. Since then our guitarist and myself have been singing. We both write our own material so we both sing our own material which can show a good variety and versatility to our sound although my stuff (Dale) is still being worked on before we are comfortable enough to play it live. Up until now we haven't had many opportunities and have still been doing events in school. We also have played at the Market Bar in Inverness and shortly after took part in last year's Get Noticed Battle Of The Bands at the Spectrum Centre in Inverness, whilst still with our previous vocalist. In September last year we recorded our EP called Trapped, with close friend Michael Stewart and we are hoping to release it as soon as possible. This year so far we have supported Fatherson at the Ironworks in Inverness back in March, along with our friends over at Last Summer Effect. Since then gigs have been easier to come by and we've had great feedback. We also supported Vukovi at Madhatters in Inverness in early April. Looking ahead now and we have a support slot for the fantastic General Fiasco from Northern Ireland in Inverness again at the Ironworks in May. Also in may we will be taking a trip down to aberdeen-shire before having a few more gigs back home then up to Thurso for our support slot for Glasgow based band ROADWAY.
