Introducing alternative rock quartet Oxbloods who will release their debut EP Collisions on the 20th April 2018. For fans of Young Guns, Don Broco and Paramore, OXBLOODS have gone in head first with writing this debut EP.

From a songwriting perspective, each track is crafted perfectly with their pure energy and emotion; something the band really wanted to achieve when writing and producing their music. States Matt Lunn, Oxbloods’s guitarist:

I’ve always wanted to be in a band from being 11, the concept of writing music and playing it with my friends excites me more than anything.

Tonota 80

With a moniker taken from a vaporising device featured in the 1970’s sci-fi novel A Whirlpool Of Stars, UK punk-rock trio Tonota 80 transmit news that their new album Killer Sands And Beating Hearts will be released via UK/US label Engineer Records on 23rd March 2018.
