Brit hard-hitting newcomers, DRENCHED, are set to make their mark with the release of their hugely striking debut EP, Grey, out Friday 23rd August. The EP is backed by their powerful new single, (in)sane, which is out now . Watch the video, here - .


With a sound that tips its hat to Grunge, Nu metal, and edgy contemporary rock, DRENCHED dispatch deeply captivating immersive slabs of progressive alt rock that range from emotive and intimate ballads to full-throttle savage barnstormers. Citing influences such as Deftones, Loathe, Tool, and Sevendust, DRENCHED have a wealth of versatility and strong musicianship at their disposal, and are ready to stake their claim as one of the new breed of bands to break out to the vanguard of the music scene. 


Coming at you from Newcastle, England, DRENCHED were formed in 2020. The band, however, only really solidified when bassist, Mak Wilson, joined the ranks which allowed vocalist, Marc Mitchell to focus solely on vocals. This fresh dimension has massively helped with the writing and live performance aspects of the band. Now with Callum Ter Morsche on guitar and backing vocals, and Mike Essery rounding out the four-piece on drums, DRENCHED are poised to take their music anywhere and everywhere. 


A series of successful live shows throughout the North of England and Scotland, including a recent sell-out in Newcastle has only strengthened DRENCHED’s budding reputation. Their name will be further amplified with the release of their incoming debut EP, Grey. The EP perfectly displays the band’s intoxicating fusion of gritty but groove-filled riffery, all skillfully laced with alluring vocal passages. Offering up four fully-fledged cuts of stout and powerful alt rock, DRENCHED are set to rise from the underground.


The studious hard-hitters take to the road this Summer. For full details, hit up the band’s social sites. 


EP track listing: 1. The Change; 2. Cycles; 3. (in)sane; 4. Tonight.  


Marc Mitchell – Vocals; Callum Ter Morsche - Guitar, Backing vocals; Mike Essery – Drums; Mak Wilson - Bass, Backing vocals.

Rising Hard-hitters ROCKABYE REAPER announce themselves with their hugely striking new single and video, Betrayal, which is out now. Check out the video, here












Bridgend in Wales has produced an array of musical talent over the years, notably Bullet For My Valentine, Funeral For A Friend, and more recently, Those Damn Crows, and natives, ROCKABYE REAPER, are now poised to be the Welsh band to breakthrough to the masses, loaded up with their own exhilarating blend of edgy hard rock that is stacked with beefy riffs, enticing hooks, and pounding beats. Formed in 2022, the powerhouse quintet feature the potent talents of Keeley Shobbrook (Vocals), Dafydd Jones (Rhythm Guitar & backing vocals), Shaun O’Brien (Lead Guitar), Daniel Thomas-James (Bass, Keyboard & backing vocals), and Matthew 'The Animal' Thomas (Drums). Already possessing a growing fanbase throughout the whole of Wales due to an onslaught of highly successful shows, ROCKABYE REAPER are now prepared to strike out on their own and are braced for nationwide exposure with the release of their debut single and forthcoming UK shows.


ROCKABYE REAPER’s new single, Betrayal, merges throbbing vocal lines and punchy riffs with thoughtful arrangements and real guile. The band remark about the motivation behind the song: “This is a high energy, Nu-Metal track that explores the treachery and disloyalty from someone you once had faith in. The lyrics delve deep into shattered trust, raw emotions, and the darkness of deception. ‘Betrayal’ is a hard-hitting track that cuts deep and leaves a lasting scar.” Upon listening to the single, it’s evident that the emerging newcomers have produced a highly impressive debut which is sure to light up the UK scene.
