The Flex is a five piece born and bred in South West England's Cotswolds. Their influences come from their producers Greg Haver (producer of Manic Street Preachers, Mel C, Lost Prophets etc) and Gaz Coombes (front man of Supergrass). They were originally known as ‘Dress To Kill’ who’s album ‘The Life & Times’ had some commercial success and they made several festival appearances last year.

This year they have re-branded and written a new album which they are currently recording. The first single as The Flex: ‘Victory’ has a poppy anthemic sound will be released May or June. The video for ‘Victory’ will feature top athletes from Team GB representing PARALYMPICS GB. So far Great Britain’s Men and Women’s wheelchair basketball teams have been filmed, over the coming weeks the video will be completed with track and field athletes and archers.

As such we expect to receive a good deal of publicity over the spring and summer months.

They are also recording with American Singer/Songwriter John Vaughn and will be Touring with Thomas Hingley (Inspiral Carpets front man) later in the year.
