“A little anger goes a long way”

It was this line, in a song written by Chemical Mojo‘s vocalist Mark Buckler, that inspired guitarist Ben Bartlett to end his affair with hip-hop and return to the dark roots of Birmingham’s underground rock scene.

The duo first toured the UK & Europe’s rock venues with Rattlesnake Remedy (KKKKK – Kerrang!). After several years of dirty laundry and hangover blues, the band went their separate ways, while Ben and Mark continued making music behind closed doors.

At the end of 2014 Tommy Gaskin and Jordan Sims kicked down those doors. Straight out of local band Jester (Premier League – Emma Scott), this rhythm machine were in high demand on the local scene.

Tommy and Jord walked in on Mark and Ben pleasuring themselves and decided to join in. Now they do it in public.

Noisy bunch of geezer’s from Birmingham est.2015. Kicking and screaming their way through Kerrang!, Counteract, Scuzz, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio with big tunes you may heave heard of, such as ‘Underachiever’ and ‘Locket Picture’. Jammed it out supporting the likes of Tigercub, Vukovi, Dead! and Electric Six!. Brainchild of Liam Howard, Joby Fitzgerald and TJ Weston. Monstrous drums, strangled riffs, distorted poetry. Let’s have it!

Hailing from Birmingham; Sevenddaze is a nu metal band with a direct and in-your-face approach.

Their cocktail of metal, punk hardcore and alt-pop helped them leave a mark on their local music scene, as their music encountered the praise of major media such as Kerrang! magazine.

Active since 2009, Sevendaze set out to develop a sound that falls somewhere in between the massive guitar walls of bands such as Limp Bizkit and early Linkin Park (think Meteora) and the melodies of artists such as Finch or Papa Roach.

The most striking feature of the band’s music is the great balance between melody and aggression, parts of their sonic formula in equal doses.
