HI-TEMPO UK ROCK COMBO  REAPER IN SICILY ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM!

 
Fast moving Brit tunesters “Reaper In Sicily” continue their rise with the launch of their new album ‘Islands’, out Monday 10th June through all national outlets.
 
Packing together the infectious wizardry and guile of The Used and Kids In Glass Houses fused with the muscular vigour of Rise Against, Reaper In Sicily have produced a sound that will blow your face right off. The South Wales riff beasts are equipped with the tools to ensure that they will explode this year!
 
Formed in 2009, soon after introducing themselves to the scene Reaper in Sicily won best unsigned live act by Kerrang! Magazine. The self-proclaimed ‘Power pop’ five-some 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’ received widespread rotation on TV screens throughout the nation, and the record received extensive 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 returned later that year and promptly released two new EPs, appeared at both the Reading and Leeds festivals, and clinched support slots for everyone from Kids In Glass Houses, The Subways, Max Raptor, Attack! Attack!, Mallory Knox, Hawthorne Heights, Fightstar, The Xcerts, Straight Lines, I Spy Strangers and Evarosa, to Hildamay, and many many more.
Now armed with their explosive debut album ‘Islands’, which was recorded by Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend & Kids In Glass Houses), the highly-rated five-piece are set to stamp their name firmly on the scene. The album is a prominent piece of modern high energy rock. From its captivating opener ‘50’, to the aptly titled ‘Chuck Norris Got A Chainsaw’ which grabs a hold of your particulars, through to their new video single ‘Horizons’, and onwards to the majestic title track ‘Islands’, the band have sculptured a record that lavishes pounding riffery, soaring melodies, and earnest energy to the listener. With a full UK tour sketched out for the early part of the summer, the band are poised and ready for dizzy heights!
