Formed at Brighton's Institute of Modern Music, the band includes Latvian singer Liva Steinberga (22), aided and abetted by guitarist Olie Trethewey (23), bassist Gordon Duncan (23), Jon Crampton (24) and drummer Harry Bland (22).
Equal parts filthy blues riffs, monster rhythm and raw, but melodic hooks, these young guns have set a determined foot on the road to rock glory, honing their skills around London's gig circuit and tearing up venues like O2 Academy Islington, Big Red and the Intrepid Fox.
Within the grooves of this self-titled debut you'll hear shreds of their rock heroes AC/DC, Rage Against the Machine, Led Zeppelin, but it's their bone crunching riffs and bottle shattering vocals that set them apart from the rest of the pack.
With a respectful nod at the musical pedigree that influenced them, the band stamp their own authority on the scene by stepping outside the boundaries of mere classic rock traditions with their own original brand of heavy riff-based rock, evident on tracks like 'Conclusion', 'Tekkers' and the single 'Ain't Got No'.
'Ain't Got No' the single will be available to download from all usual online retailers from Monday August 11.
The debut album 'Black State Highway' can be pre-ordered now.
