he rKIVES are 4 piece balls-out rock band from the South Wales valleys made up of Shep (vocals), Kieran (guitar) Ratty (bass) Coxy (drums).
They formed late 2009 after a number of member changes to settle upon the right blend of song writers and musicians. Ever since, they have been working on writing new material, powerful live performances and a solid, hard hitting 3 track EP.
The EP was recording at the fast-becoming-legendary Nottin-Pill Studios in Newport (Bullet For My Valentine, Skindred, FFAF) by one of the most talented up and coming songwriters/engineers/producers Matt Bond and produced by Martin "Ginge” Ford (Bullet For My Valentine, Slipkont live DVD, Trivium) while in the US recording the new Trivium album.
They have developed a blend of hard hitting rock/metal likened to System of a Down, RATM and Snot by critics and fans alike.
They have played venues in and around South Wales such as Sin City, Barfly, The Point and TJ’s along with spreading their wings to London playing The Purple Turtle and a week-long tour to Germany playing venues such as White Trash & The Lido.
