Many of you will know of Craig Sheridan who did a couple of acoustic sets at this years Breaking Bands Festival… Well we can now confirm and proudly announce that his band will also be making the long trip up from Deal in Kent as we announce that CRASHGATE will be making an appearance next year.
The band is certainly no stranger to acclaim and increasingly intensive support, even in the early days of 2011 when the band emerged they were creating a buzz with a sound taking potent inspiration from bands such as Nickelback, Guns N’ Roses, and Black Stone Cherry. A few line-up changes came with those early times but once stability was found in personnel, CRASHGATE had already become a major part of their local rock scene. With a flair for aligning uncompromising riffs and dramatic rhythms to adventurous blends of melodic vocals and raw throat sculpted roars, all courted by an anthemic tenacity, the band was soon replicating their success and inescapable persuasion further afield, subsequently bursting in the national rock scene.

And now on to our second announcement. A very popular choice amongst the group members on Facebook is South Wales 3 piece outfit CROWSAW. The band released an album last year and followed that up with a stunning EP earlier this year and today launch a video for their latest track ‘The Colours’
Home-grown trio producing riff-driven blues rock with soul, fusing the grooving sensibilities of Hendrix with the uncompromising heads-down drive of Sabbath and swagger of Zeppelin. A rock solid lock-step rhythm section of Mark Pullin drums and Glyn Mason bass and backing vocal, overlaid with Rob Lomax’s fluid guitar pyrotechnics and gritty vocals in both self-penned originals and judiciously chosen covers courtesy of Moray Stuart.
Here is their new video:
