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!

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!
