It is hard to find any other word than amazing for this band..Not to be missed!!!
As proven throughout their debut album, Through Hell...And Kept Going, vocalist Lewis Wright, guitarist Peter Donnelly, bassist Iain Forsyth, and drummer Barrie May have fully absorbed influences ranging from Lynard Skynard to Pearl Jam--and have filtered them all through their own unique musical perspectives. Matchstickmen’s passion for music is clearly evident to all who hear their music or see them perform. The band energises their audience in a way that has so far greatly surpassed any of their rivals and earned themselves an array of prominent gigs opening for acts such as Electric Six, The Quireboys, Taking Dawn and InMe to name a few. With the new EP set for release in early 2012, to coincide with the completion of the full “Through Hell...” UK album tour, the now four-piece have proven to the world that they are pulling in the right direction. The music of Matchstickmen appeals to rock fans and non-rock fans alike and is an essential addition to any music lover’s library.
Excellent Band not to be missed www.myspace.com/matchstickmenuk
