Formed in the autumn of 2008, The Hyper Tensions come from the hotbed of musical talent, Peterborough, which has released onto the world, such names as, Half of Erasure, Shades of Rhythm and that bloke who once played guitar for The Prodigy.
Darren and Andy having been friends for a number of years, originally meeting at Reading Festival, decided to start a band together.
The band made their debut at The Solstice on January 28th and has since played The Cherry Tree in Kettering and The Met Lounge in Peterborough, as well as going back to The Solstice on the 18th March.
After losing their drummer in August 2010 it didn't take long before Gemma stepped forward and offered her services. The band are busy practicing and writing new tunes. Now that Mark has joined the band we have a new injection of writing and musical talent. we are looking forward to the up and coming months and hope to see you at a gig.
Now Mark has moved to NZ for a year or so, the band have gone back down to a 3 piece. Before Mark went away he recorded all his part for all the track, so the rest of the band will now spend some time getting the recording done.
