Since bursting onto the scene in late 2010, Sixtyfours have become a major player on the Coventry and Warwickshire live music circuit. Armed with a brand new album of infectious hooks for 2014, their blistering live set spits insightful lyricism, searing guitar leads, pounding bass and beats so sublime they’ll make your mother cry. They draw influences from acts like Plan B, Linkin Park and Rage Against the Machine.
Fast building a reputation as one of the most dynamic live music acts in the midlands, the band have played a number of high profile shows including support slots with the likes of Mercury Music Prize nominee Ghostpoet, New York legends Fun Lovin’ Criminals, MTVs Jackass star Steve-O and Rudimental. They’ve also hit the BBC Introducing Stage at Wychwood Music Festival and main stage at the UK’s biggest free festival, Godiva Festival. Their debut EP ‘Up To No Good’ was released December 2011 with the lead track ‘Back To 88’ being named in the BBC Introducing C&W Top 10 Songs Of The Year. Sixtyfours were announced as artist of the month and went on to receive airplay from BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio and Kerrang! Radio.
Working with producer Matt Terry (The Enemy, Noisettes, Ocean Colour Scene) Sixtyfours devoted themselves to writing and recording their debut album ‘After the Night’ released 30th June 2014. The album consists of 9 perfectly executed tracks fusing hip-hop and rock. With the addition of guest performers and vocalists, Sixtyfours created a rich and eclectic sound with depth and strength in every track.
“All killer, no filler” “…something of a classic album” “…fusing hip-hop and rock like it was always like that.” - Coventry Telegraph
