Manchester-based alt-rock trio PEUR have unveiled their new single, An
Exercise in Abstinence, Hitting your senses with a sound that fuses the edgy dexterity of Nine Inch Nails with the hook-laden know-how of Biffy Clyro, PEUR are a band that you must hear.
Watch the video for the track below –
Ferociously impressive and massive in sound, PEUR deliver bold, roaring
alt-rock that’s as melodic as it is heavy. Formed at the start of 2013,
members Joe Lomax (Guitar/Vocals), Ryan Greenhalgh (Bass) and Sam Tempest
(Percussion) bring an enthralling and unique vision of music, striking a
balance between heavy instruments and the very best elements of hard and
alternative rock sounds. With influences ranging from Muse and
65daysofstatic to Northlane, their broad taste allows them to write music
with complexity and mainstream appeal. To date, PEUR have supported a host
of artists panning from the DZ Deathrays, Allusondrugs, and Dearly Beloved,
to Empty Yard Experiment, and the band have also received prominent radio
coverage from independent, commercial FM and Internet radio shows, including
BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music.
2015 was a successful year for the industrious trio, as their widely
received sophomore EP, Future Architects, brought the alt-rockers much
national attention and also earned them a slot at T In The Park. The band
then spent the vast majority of 2016 penning tracks for their debut album,
which lands later this year. Before this, PEUR mark their return with the
release a new single, which has been produced by long term collaborator Dan
Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns), entitled, An Exercise in Abstinence.
The single is a dynamic slab of captivating
alt-rock laced with alluring phrasing that is destined to ignite. PEUR also
