“…the songs twist to give a curious turn for the inquisitive listener” - Leeds Music Scene
Based in Leeds and Sheffield, the band consists of Samson (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Kevin (lead guitar and backing vocals), Boa (bass guitar and backing vocals) and Chris (drums and backing vocals) who pride themselves on their live shows, and since forming in Sheffield in 2005, they have supported numerous bands over the past four years including ‘Arctic Monkeys,’ ‘The Maccabees,’ ‘Hot Club de Paris,’ ‘The Big Pink’ and ‘Little Man Tate.’ The infectious charm they carry combined with their overflow of energy and enthusiasm has led to the mass of support across the country from their ever increasing fan base.
On top of their simply heroic on-stage antics, the band are super productive and spend every other waking minute in the studio writing and recording, with a glorious catalogue of EPs just waiting to be discovered. Past releases include “Red Door” EP and “Friend of Mine” demo which was described by Sheffield Music Hub as ‘great music in the finest Indie, Brit-guitar tradition…Deserves to be all over MTV2 / Flux!”
Glasswerk said of the band “Volcanoes seem determined to chisel out songs in their own style, a style which rarely lets the audience settle into an apathetic indie number”.
