Formed in February 2012, after meeting in College in Bridgend, South Wales, Milestone have an individual and collective rampant obsession with riff-driven rock, and it manifests itself in their music. The quartet are steadily picking up new fans and have already extensively played throughout their homeland, sharing stages with an assortment of artists such as Exit International, The Dead Famous, Gavin Butler from The Blackout, and Neil Starr from Attack, Attack. The twisted riffsmiths are also poised to strike out to the nation with touring soon to be announced.

DEATH BY KI debut EP’The Right Of Might’, out 20th May‏

Death By Ki Online Promo Shot

Brit riff-slingers ‘Death By Ki’ unleash their enticing debut record ‘The Right Of Might’ through all digital outlets on Monday 20th May 2013.

Bursting out of Bridgwater, Somerset, newcomers Death By Ki bond together a formidable sound, lifting from the rampant power of Slayer and Lamb Of God and the old school riffery of Metallica. The South West road warriors, comprised of Josh Ayerst (Guitars and lead vocals), Chris Chamberlain (Guitars and backing vocals), Will Robins (Bass and backing vocals), and Nick Cope (Drums), pack together a heady blend of pummelling hooks laced with Slayer-esque vocals, set with layered riffage, and complemented by sturdy bass and rock solid beats.
The early roots of the band stem back to Josh and Nicky C’s school days, where the duo regularly jammed. Over time, they hooked up with Will and began to lay the early foundations for Death By Ki. However, it was not until 2011, when Chris joined the ranks, that things really started to solidify for the four piece. Since then, the lively quartet have pinned down countless shows across the UK supporting the likes of  ‘Gallows’, ‘Revoker’, ‘Romeo Must Die’, ‘Evile’, and Australian metallers ‘Be’Lakor’ along the way.
 
After vigorously sharpening their set, the band took up residency at Junkyard Studios in Newport, Wales, where the four piece put down tracks for their first official EP with Jeff Rose (former guitarist for Dub War and Skindred) who has recently worked with the likes of Bullet For My Valentine, Revoker, and Funeral For A Friend.
Death By Ki came out of the studio with their debut EP, ‘The Right Of Might’, which immediately lunges forward with stunning pace, spewing out frantic drumming and hi-octane riffs to striking effect. Ramming five songs of intensely contagious vocal lines, a burly rhythm section, and high paced Kirk Hammett-esque licks, the band have produced a blazing and potent slice of modern metal. Now, with an army of fans waiting in the trenches, the stage is all set for the band to rise and break out to the nation.
 
++ The new video for ‘Control (In A World Of Free Will)’ was filmed in the crypt beneath St. Paul’s Church in Bristol by Carl Shanahan; it will also be released on Monday 20th May. Details of an exclusive premier will be announced during the coming weeks ++

ELYSIUM EP ‘In Valour’, announced for 13th May‏

 

Elysium Promo Shot

ELYSIUM DEBUT EP LAUNCHED!

UK Riff Tyrants arrive with an explosive debut EP ‘In Valour’, out nationwide from Monday 13th May.
Pulling from a host of areas from the dynamism of Lower Than Atlantis, to the melodic onslaught of A Day To Remember and Four Year Strong, through to the power and drive of Architects, Elysium have sculptured a sound that twists and turns, but is hugely satisfying and will undoubtedly captivate its audience.
 
Spawned from the ashes of their previous band ‘Times Like These’, Elysium are a brand new band with their own manifesto and they are intent on sharing it with the nation. Formed during the later part of 2012 and hailing from Watford (the birthplace for recent luminaries The Gallows and Lower Than Atlantis), Elysium have been burrowed away in their practise room for the past three months penning a brand new live set and working on their debut EP.
 
Now armed with their debut record ‘In Valour’, which is released this May, the band will surely take gargantuan steps forward. From the get-go, the EP’s title track ‘In Valour’ soon rips itself through your ear drums boasting a flowing collection of strapping riffs and vocal lines that cunningly weave in and around your cranium. Before you know it ‘I’m A Thief But I Keep What I Steal’ is upon you and is snapping at your heels for attention, and you should duly oblige, as this venom laced cut is a blistering piece of modern angst punk tinged post-hardcore. Next up, ‘Scars’ takes flight with its scatter gun riffage and soaring melodies, while ‘Boy’ closes the record with a potent slab of gritty rockcore that tugs at your heart strings while beating your head into submission. Buy the record this May and look out for the band on tour throughout the remainder of the year!

RISING UPTEMPO ROCK CREW SPIT OUT POWERHOUSE NEW EP, STUNNING VIDEO, AND UK TOUR!

 
Alt tunesmiths ‘Jet Pack’ drop their hugely impressive new EP through digital stores on Monday 6th May, along with a brand new video and UK tour.
West Midland new guns, Jet Pack, are set to make a hefty impression on the currently buoyant Brit-rock scene with their heartfelt brand of melody-drenched rock. Merging a sincere alternative edge with probing guitar rhythms and alluring emotive vocal lines, fused with strong post-punk DIY ethics, the hard working foursome take from the hooky fluency of Blink 182, the sheer rock dynamism of Foo Fighters, and the song writing dexterity of Jimmy Eat World. In the culmination, Jet Pack have produced a captivating sound that will pound right out of your speakers.
 
Formed out of university in 2008 and born in Cheltenham, Jet Pack consist of Dennis Cook (Vocals / Guitar), Paul Roberts (Lead Guitar / Vocals), Richard Beattie (Bass), and Sam Haskins (Drums), who were all brought together by their mutual love for pop-punk. Since then, the band have relentlessly toured the nation’s highways and byways, playing headline home town shows supporting Hype Theory, General Fiasco, Attention Thieves, and Hildamay, as well as playing acoustic slots before Blink 182 at the LG Arena in Birmingham. Jet Pack are also set to open with another acoustic slot for Biffy Clyro and City and Colour later this month. With a strong work ethos, aided by their memorably hi-octane live shows, everything is starting to fall into place for the band, as their growing fan-base will testify.
 
Jet Pack now stride forward as they step up to the plate with their new EP ‘Chasing Sunsets’. With esteemed producer Matt O’Grady (Youmeatsix, Deaf Havana) at the helm, the record is a heaving enterprise of strapping riffs and hooky cuts, gleaming with classy contagious melodies and considered up-tempo arrangements. From the stomping groovage and urgent intent of their new single ‘Back To Life’, to the sweeping contagious refrain of ‘Now I Know How John Locke Felt’, right through to the majestic and utterly tuneful ‘Heat Of The Moment’, and to the anthemic ‘All I Need’, the alt-rockers exert a snappy ability for solid melody and have unveiled a killer debut record that is sure to steer the band to giddy heights for the remainder of 2013 and beyond!

REAPER IN SICILY Return with explosive new single.

Reaper In Sicily Online Promo Shot

HIGHLY TOUTED UK HI-TEMPO ROCK CREW RETURN WITH BLISTERING NEW SINGLE AND DEBUT ALBUM!

UK rock upstarts “Reaper In Sicily” are braced to up the ante with their brand new single ‘Horizons’, out 25th March, taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Islands’, which is also due for national release on 10th June.
Combining the contagious fluency and dexterity of The Blackout and The Used meshed with the biting attack of Rise Against, Reaper In Sicily have crafted a sound that will blow your face right off. The South Wales riff merchants have everything in place to set loose their spanking new single ‘Horizons’, and debut album, as they look to explode in 2013.
 
Originally spawned in 2009, Reaper in Sicily hit the scene with instant impact and soon won best unsigned live act by Kerrang! Magazine. The self-proclaimed ‘Power pop’ quintet then went on to sign a record deal with Search and Destroy Records and Raw Power Management. The band’s first single ‘We Are The Show’ graced TV screens throughout the nation, and the record received widespread critical acclaim, including radio airplay on BBC Radio One.
 
Sadly though, in March 2010, Matthew Jenkins (guitarist) was diagnosed with leukaemia, and the band were instantly placed on a hiatus until the guitarist was well enough to play again. Reaper then made an astonishing come back at the Reading and Leeds festivals in support of their debut EP ‘Eden’. The Welsh five-some then went on to release their sophomore EP ‘Chapters’ and extensively toured throughout the UK  in support of it, playing with everyone from Kids In Glass Houses, The Subways, Max Raptor, Attack! Attack!, Mallory Knox, Hawthorne Heights, Fightstar, The xcerts, Straight Lines, I Spy Strangers, Evarosa, Hildamay, and many many more. Towards the end of 2012, Reaper In Sicily bedded down at Longwave Studio with Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend & Kids In Glass Houses) at the controls, to record their self-funded Debut Album ‘Islands’.
 
Now loaded to the gills with a stunning debut album, the spirited five-piece release their record’s first single ‘Horizons’, out Monday 25th March. ‘Horizons’ is a glaring statement of intent from the band. Hugely anthemic with cut throat riffery, soaring melodies, and raucous energy, the single is destined to propel the quintet’s profile, and with further touring in the works for the late summer/autumn period, and the national launch of the album in June, there’s no stopping Reaper this time!
=The album, ‘Islands’,  is set  for national release on 10th June, and new single ‘Horizons’ is out Monday 25th March.=

BAND MEMBERS: Rhys Bernardo (Vocals); Jonny Chappell (Guitar); Matthew Jenkins (Guitar); Mike Evans (Bass); and Damon Mikes (Drums)

Hundred Days release new video

Hundred Days Online Promo shot

South West rock crew ‘HUNDRED DAYS’ have just released their new video for the track ‘Whatever Happened To You’.

The video single is out now and is taken from the band’s acclaimed album ‘Mission Exodus’.

The video can be viewed now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=x9zJ4OBxbSE and check out the band’s Facebook at www.facebook.com/hundreddays

Formed in 2007 and born in Yeovil, Somerset, Hundred Days unleash a sound that flirts cunningly between classic rock and heavy metal. Drawing from everyone from ‘Slash’ and ‘Guns ‘n’ Roses’, to ‘Led Zeppelin’ and ‘AC/DC’, Hundred Days offer a unique take on the heavy rock genre.

The hotly tipped trio have been busy making new friends and gaining more fans. With a strong gigging work ethic which has seen the band play the length and breadth of the UK (including a series of high-profile festival appearances throughout the South-West area, as well as supporting Hugh Cornwell, from ‘The Stranglers’), there’s no stopping Hundred Days as they move up through the gears. Added to the fact that the threesome have recently released their brand new album ‘Mission Exodus’, which racked up widespread national press recognition and rampant coverage throughout the underground, the sky is the limit for these South-westerners.

Hundred Days now plough forward again with their video single ‘Whatever Happened To You’, which is lifted from Mission Exodus. ‘Whatever Happened To You’ is a killer blues rock cut that tips its cap to ‘Queens Of The Stoneage’ and those beard kings, ‘ZZ Top’. The track is also backed by a cool ‘quirky’ video that warrants your attention. The single is available from 4th March and can be accessed at http://hundreddays.co.uk/mp3s/Mission_Exodus/Hundred_Days-Whatever_Happened_To_You.mp3 .
