We are a London-based trio, fusing catchy pop-like choruses with arena-rock inspired “sing along” hooks to justify the band’s already established sound making it into something undeniable.
Big influences are bands like Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Muse and 30 seconds to Mars.
Our backstory is that all the bandmates were split in 3 different sides of the world.(Originally due to studying and then work) . Ray in Japan, Kay in the United States and Mario back in the UK but the band managed to stay together and kept writing new material through many struggles and hardships. Thus came the name “Distant Bonds”.
We are currently working on a killer new single that will be revealed soon enough! At the beginning of January we will play a live session at the amazing Eastcote Studios in London, also video-record. Looking forward to that! Last but not least, we will play at festivals and several events until the coming summer.
