Tell us a bit about yourself?
Formed in Lincoln UK in late 2015, Ben Ellis was performing solo acoustic originals and playing in folk-punk band Dog Goblins while Rick Whitehead had been the lead songwriter and guitarist in alt-metal band, Tripswitch. Warren 'Wozza' Nel joined on drums in 2016 and the band racked up an extensive amount of gigs over the next 18 months including several festivals slots. Lizzie Clarke (ex-Almaboobies) took over on bass in 2017 bringing her own hyper brand of stage presence. We have a huge range of musical influences including New Model Army, Tool, Queens Of The Stone age, Deftones, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Siouxsie And The Banshees. Our music is totally and utterly from our hearts, knowing the importance music to our lives.
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?
When we first got together as a band we realised that trying to scratch every one of our musical itches as musicians was a tall order to say the least. We knew one thing though and that was what music meant to us as individuals and that we didn't care for trends. We were all experienced musicians with our own individual tastes and stories and we used that experience and passion to create the sound we have now.
Describe what one of your songs is about?
The first song on our EP 'Nobody Knows Me Like You' is written about personal failings and mental health. It's about asking questions to yourself as an individual and to the people closest to you in your life. Asking as a person/father/mother/friend or whoever 'Am I Coping' 'Where do you go from here?'.
What are you working on at the moment?
We released our Debut EP simply titled 'Saboteurs' on the 2nd of February 2018 and are working hard promoting it ourselves. we're currently working on getting gigs and touring in the UK and Europe and appearing at some festivals in the summer. We hope to return to the studio before the year ends to continue our journey.
