Single: Sun Comes Around
Label: Circular Records
The Procession, with theirsoaring choruses and meaty guitar riffs, are a 4 piece Alternative Indie / Rock band based in the Midlands.
Having built up a following on the local scene with their unique, varied sound and vibrant live performances, the band signed to Scottish label Circular Records in early 2011.
With their recent debut single “Sometimes” having received much nationwide critical acclaim, this their follow up release recorded at Yellow Bean Studios in Leicester and with a full UK tour in the planning, sees 2011 building up to be a very promising and exciting year for The Procession.
With James Best on vocals & guitar, Martin Byrne, vocals, guitar & keyboard, Paul Richardson, bass guitar and Nicholas "Buzz" Buzzard vocals, drums & guitar, this is a band that prides themselves on their varied and unique sound that stems from a no boundaries approach to writing.
Never shy of experimenting with new and unusual concepts for live shows, the band is sure to spread their unique energy in as many new places as possible over the next 12 months.
With all band members coming from different backgrounds, each contributes to the creative process with songs tackling a variety of subjects from every emotional spectrum. Their music has been described as “mixing experiences, attitude, feelings, and pain, and applying it with wit, charisma and fun”, as well as, “delivered with a passion and geniality that really takes the listener on a journey with them”.
Previews of their debut album, which is due out later in 2011, have been well received already winning the acclaim of MTV’s Phil Clifton and XFM’s and 4 Music’s Pete Donaldson:
“The combination of tunes really entices the listener into wanting more. We ride through soaring choruses, meaty guitar riffs, via bare soul intimacy all packed with more hooks than you’ll find in Mariah Carey’s wardrobe!!”
“Musical sophistication….superbly controlled guitar….it is truly the depth and subtlety of the melodies that shine through on The Procession’s infinitely promising debut EP”
