THE RATTLEBACKS are the band you have been waiting for. Loaded to the nines with blistering riffs, raucous energy, all-consuming hooks, and backed by an explosively dangerous live show, it’s only a matter of time before the formidable hard rockers break. The irrepressible five-piece unleash their hugely captivating new EP, Kink, which lands on Friday 17th November. The band have also just released their ferocious new single and video, Rattleback.
Starting life in 2021 and hitting your senses from Brighton, England, THE RATTLEBACKS are comprised of Coxy (Rhythm Guitar) and Max (Lead Guitar), both having known each other since birth. The duo warmly welcomed Jack “The Hell” Hollamby to the fold, who provides the low-end emotion on bass, and powerhouse tub-thumper, Seth Markes, who completes their impressive rhythm section on drums. The band initiated a two-and-a-half-year nationwide search to find the right voice, and after countless and fruitless auditions, they stumbled across Josh Clarke performing live, and instantly they knew they had their man.
The fiery quintet have an unwavering passion to deliver hard rock music to a new generation. Tipping their hat to grunge and classic hard rock, whilst incorporating modern sensibilities, THE RATTLEBACKS are not a band rehashing a pale imitation of a past incarnation, they gallantly stand alone in their own merits and are a sheer force of nature. Already possessing a loyal fan base across Southern England with countless sold-out headline shows, the band have developed an underground cult following. With their EP, Kink, on the horizon and their debut album close to completion, their devoted fanbase has donated over £5,000 via GoFundMe to help propel the band to the next level.
THE RATTLEBACKS are now primed to set loose their manifesto to an unsuspecting public. With a flurry of singles and releases planned for the coming months, along with a cluster of greatly anticipated live performances, THE RATTLEBACKS’ time is definitely now.
