About Band

Biography Formed from the aftermath of Yorkshire outfit 'SPIN'
who had great success in 2006, when they managed to beat of fearce competion from tens of thousands of other acts, to win Virgin Radio Best Unsigned Band, and picking up the ultimate prize which was 2 dates at Milton Keynes supporting Bon Jovi and Nickelback.
Shortly after however the band split.
Karl the original frontman set out to form a new line up and go in a slightly different direction, a slightly darker, slighly heaver exterior, but with commercial hooks, and anthemic choruses.
Along with new bass player Junior, they set out to find the ultimate line-up, and after several months and several line ups, things are finally taking shape. Junior stumbled across Mark through a website, a Leeds based drummer who had just split from his band, and searching for a new challenge. The rhythm section was complete, and tighter than Kylie's hotpant's. Now the search was on for guitarist's. After trying out several potentials without success, Chris came to the helm, and provided a powerful, full guitar sound, exactly what they were looking for, and some exellent riffs. So then, they were in search of the fifth and final element, a rhythm guitarist, not quite, they have now completed the line up with new Lead/rhythm guitarist Andy. Now the line up is complete they are well and truly ready to ROCK I..I, Check out: '' where there is 4 tracks, but plenty more in the pipeline. They have at least 2 albums worth of new material which they are to start tracking in late summer, Leeds AND the rest of the UK better watch out, as this band are going to blow all opposition into oblivion.
