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!

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)

Conformist – ‘Savages Go Modern!’

Conformist the Cardiff based punk  cut-and-paste electronic maestro  has just released his new single ‘Savages Go Modern!’ digitally with its physical arrival coming on the 20th of February.

Conformist is the work of one man, Michael Simmons who with attitude and provocative intent expertly manipulates and reassembles intricate layers of sounds, sampling anything from cable TV shows, shopping channels, to talk shows and pornos, inspired by the dregs of TV. Forging these together, cutting and pasting, and editing to intricate and concentrated levels of complexity the 28-year-old based in Cardiff creates an aural tapestry of noise and dirt crusted sounds to bring a ‘… soundtrack to the cities seedy post-apocalyptic underbelly!’

New single ‘Savages Go Modern!’ rattles the senses’ cages with incisive sonic manipulations and slithers of caustic bright lights/seedy back street imagery, the tone and emotive fuel provided by his surroundings far removed from his quiet subdued beginnings in the picturesque village of Dale in Pembrokeshire. Fusing 8 bit analogue chip-tune melodies with thrusting scuzzed up scathing punk guitars and post-dubstep baselines, Simmons paints with sounds to conjure up impressions and visual reactions.

The track recalls the intensity and creative fusions gloriously brought forth by Pop Will Eat Itself though it is fair to say there is not the immediate accessibility here but ‘Savages Go modern!’ carries a harsher intent and invades with a slower consumption to satisfying effect. Dark wit oozes through the track too and its attentive deliberate construction flows with a smooth yet cutting and imposing effect making the track greedy and pleasing at the same time.

To this point Conformist has received strong interest and gained airplay on Steve Lamacq’s on R1 and Adam Walton’s Radio Wales show as well as good media coverage. Simmons is also the driving force behind Cardiff’s newest audio production facility, Smash Mastering, which is gaining a rapidly increasing strong reputation with its offering of mastering, mixing and acclaimed remixes. Already his work can be found on Cardiff band Kutosis’ track ‘Islands’ and Bury Me in LA’s ‘Young Lust Seekers’.

‘Savages Go Modern’ is an outstanding release that triggers eagerness for his forthcoming full length release in March. For more information and to sample the great sounds of Conformist check out the official website @ http://www.conformistmusic.co.uk
