Biography

In 2011, Music students: Sam Marshall from Middlesbrough, Ashton Tucker from Bristol and David James Pollit from Rochdale, met at the Royal Northern College of Music and proposed the idea of forming a band to write and perform original material due to all members having past experience of songwriting in other bands in their respective hometowns

The band, joined by Adam Rodgers on drums, began to compose strong material from the first rehearsal, combining Ashton's experimental punk rock rhythm style with DJ's distinctive bass tones and Sam's impressive blues based lead technique. The potential of the material provoked the band to contact promotional companies and other artists for support slots to premiere their material.

Sadly, in late 2011, Rodgers decided it was in his best interest to leave the band. Understanding the decision, the band wished him their best and began the search for a new drummer. They were however, not deterred from performing and began to perform acoustic arrangements of their material at open mic nights in Manchester at established venues such as The Deaf Institute.

In 2012, Irish drummer, Will Unger joined the band to once again complete the line up. With the new input of his own musical style to the mix, the band once again began to write new material and prepared once again to hit the Manchester scene.

The band are currently working on releasing their debut E.P in conjunction with Spirit Studios in Manchester as well as organizing dates not only in Manchester but in other cities as well such as Bristol and Leeds.
