Bands do not get fresher than WINCHESTER, a brand new alt-rock trio who release their second single ‘Diamond’ ahead of their stunning debut LP Life Begins At These Dead Ends (February 09 release).
Watch ‘Diamond’ below:
Although young, WINCHESTER are a band with a promising array of sounds. The eclectic alt-rockers tastefully mix elements of technical rock/metal, metalcore, alt-rock and melodic rock. Influenced by the likes of Fightstar, Funeral for a Friend, Deftones and Biffy Clyro, WINCHESTER utilise powerful riffs, versatile rhythms and emotional lyrics.
Life Begins… establishes the band as a group to keep eyes on. The threepiece’s first effort has been produced by Dan Weller (SikTh, Enter Shikari), and mastered by Dick Beetham. Supported already by the likes of BBC Radio Wales, Impericon Mag, the future looks bright for WINCHESTER, full of potential.
The second part of a multi-media narrative, ‘Diamond’ combines with previous video ‘Life Begins’, telling a continuing tale. WINCHESTER’s 2018 plans, beyond releasing their LP, will see them play their first shows and tours further into the year.
