The first demo was put together by Gareth, Joe and Mike in October 2007 and it received a healthy response from people who took the time to listen.
" The response to the first couple of tracks was quite overwhelming, they were rough round the edges and only really contained guide vocals but we knew then we had a great thing going on" (G.C)
365KGS carried on writing material and wrote 17 - 18 songs in just a few months.The heart on your sleeve style approach adopted by Gareth for songwriting just worked so well that the songs kept coming, almost as if the emotional floodgates had been opened after many years.
"We are 4 regular working guys with all the commitments life brings who just want to share our thoughts and expieriences with the world through good music." ( G.C Feb 2008)
By March 2008 the band knew it was time to record the tracks properly to do them justice, they struggled for a while D.I.Y recording what they could. Then in May 2008 Gareth met Dave Draper a producer from Worcester working out of FFG Studios. Dave loved the material and quickly set about formulating a Game plan for recording an producing an E.P with the band.
Whilst all this was going on Gareth also set about Getting a new Guitarist for the band, Nick Wilton was first choice, a colleague of Gareth and Mike's, "I rang Nick and gave him some of the original demos to listen to.Nick loved it and was on board straight away, so far he has proved himself to be an excellent addition and it seems to us as if he was in the band from the start anyhow"
The E.P went very well, so well in fact that it's now become an Album which they are working on currently.Scheduled for release on the 1st October 2008 the Debut album " Storm Rising"by 365KGS promises to be something very special indeed.
In 365KGS's own words on the very ethic of their song's;
"Music and lyrics that truly mean something don't need a lot of help to be something special anyhow"
365KGS's Debut album Storm rising is available from the main website www.365kgs.com and on CD baby, Amazon, Play.com, I tunes, Napster, Rhapsody & 7 Digital to name but a few.
