New Album 'A Muzzle for the Masses' OUT NOW!



This Burning Age was started by Friday back in 2007 as a solo project. In September of the same year recording started on what was to become the 10 track album “A Muzzle for the Masses” with Friday writing, arranging and performing everything on the album. During the summer of 2008, towards the end of the recording process, he set about recruiting band members with a view to taking the tracks live and by the New Year the line-up was ready.

2009 saw their profile rise considerably. DJ and Television presenter Alex Zane selected them for his radio show in January, playing “Panic (Bring on the Bomb)”. This was followed by Kerrang Radio’s Emma Scott playing “Human Condition” at the end of February and every week throughout March on her Saturday night “RAW” show and a two week run on Radio WM. This culminated in them being asked to open for established Alt-Rock stalwarts “Hundred Reasons” on the Birmingham leg of their UK tour at the O2 Academy 2 at the end of March, a night held in association with Kerrang. After recently taking on Management, the band are now booking gigs and festivals throughout the UK and into Europe with a short German tour planned for January/February 2011.

Here’s a small selection of what people within the music industry and fans are saying about This Burning Age:

Interpol meets Sonic Youth in thoughtful, dark “alt-electro-rock”...they deserve attention - Birmingham Live Review

Every once in a while a band comes along that that defies the current practice of genre pigeon holing, This Burning Age are just such a band. Technically it’s quite brilliant. You find complex layers of distorted guitars and synths, with dark, brooding drum and bass lines. The use of analogue equipment rather than the more modern digital equivalents give it a real retro feel without losing the up to date minimalist approach. I can almost imagine Eno doing something like this. A stunning debut album. - Midlands Rocks Online Music Magazine

This band are one of my “Midlands bands to watch out for” - Emma Scott - Radio DJ/Promoter (Kerrang Radio, Q Radio, Heart FM)

'Human Condition' holds a Duran Duran-esque suaveness while maintaining the credibility that comes with good, hard-hitting rock music. In a world where young bands think that a few flashy wailings from a Happy Meal synthesizer make their music electronic, This Burning Age really know what they're doing and where the right noises fit. Whether it's the apocalyptic groans of 'Repeat To Fade' or the oddly uplifting 'End Game', this album is a goddamn glorious example of electro/industrial/what-have-you rock. Your ears need this wonderful punishment. - Black Velvet Magazine

I believe you have the potential to go all the way and more, that the album is stronger than much of what is currently polluting the music industry - Vince Appleby - Scout for Universal Music Group

The music has a real edge and passion - Paul Murphy - founder of Songwriters Café and formerly of “The Destroyers”

Looking forward to seeing you become the next big star in your genre...your work is beyond brilliant; genius, in fact. 'This Burning Age' are going to set the world on fire - Leia Honda Scandur - U.S. D.J/Director/Producer

A whole lot of passion, work, thoughts and emotions have been put into ‘A Muzzle for the Masses’. It’s audible in every note that’s being played and word that’s being sung. The record’s going to send you on a rollercoaster ride through various emotional states and by all means should be checked out by any fan of ambitious, electronic/rock music. I think this band’s got a bright future ahead of them - “Reflections of Darkness” - German Online Music Magazine

There are probably not more than a handful of bands that inspire me with every single one of their songs, but This Burning Age definitely have a place among those who do - Luna - Head of the This Burning Age German Street Team (who organised a group of fans to fly over to watch them support Hundred Reasons)
