Heard the one about the young Irish, Scots, Welsh and English rockers....well, it’s no joke.
Meet Cage The Gods, a sensational new British rock band that fuse together rock ‘n’ roll culture from the four corners of the UK in a thunderously blues-inspired fashion, laced with soaring Celtic rock vocals, all of which creates something powerful, something unerringly familiar yet instantly gripping.
Irish vocalist Peter Comerford and Scottish guitarist Jam formed the band in the summer of 2012 to record and release material they had already begun writing. Before long, the pair crossed paths with 21 year old prodigious English drumming upstart ‘NJ’ who had just returned from a year of live gigging on the Los Angeles circuit. The line up was complete when 6’7” Welsh bassist Mitch Witham saw an ad for a band in the local rag and duly applied, auditioned for and got the gig!
They spent most of 2012 writing, producing, recording and mixing their debut album titled “Favourite Sin” due for release at the end of 2013. Not content with just making a great record they then mastered it, designed the sleeve, manufactured a limited edition fan version and proceeded to set about procuring management and live agents without a second thought. Spin forward less than 8 weeks into 2013 and they had secured all the above and more with international management, major promoters and live booking agents all in tow.
Their self released debut four-track EP “Bruce Willis (My Time Is Now)” will be released in August 2013 along with the prerequisite video which they will of course storyboard themselves. The unusual title came about when, in the bands own words, “We had demoed the music and were looking for some lyrical inspiration. We decided to sync the track with explosion videos on YouTube and turns out Bruce Willis features in a lot of them so that became our working title….and it stuck. We are trying to see if we can get him in the video so you never know!”. The EP is backed with “From the Start”, “Wake Up” and “Sacrifice (acoustic)”.
Cage The Gods are set to play many more dates in 2013. Check Tour Dates.
