About this item

The four piece who consist of Tom Rowlett (vocals), Ben Deboo (guitar), Jamie Harris (bass) and Chris Mardon (drums) – home grown in Hoxton before the beards and pop-up cocktail bars arrived - have spent the last few years touring consistently, honing their classic yet contemporary sound. The result is a shockingly tight live band who are heading out on a month long UK tour in November. „We Paid For Blood‟ is the follow up to 2013's "Shimmer Gold" and sees them musically evolved, whilst still maintaining their raw power and melodies. The album has a much fuller sound – a mixture of The Clash, The La‟s, The Replacements, The Kinks and Captain Beefheart – although they are much more than the sum of their influences. Fired up by the political situation of 2015 (both personal and public) Rowlett uses these issues lyrically and enhances the urgency of the new record.
