Hailing from the heart of England’s ale brewing capital, on the edge of the National Forest, Burton-on-Trent three-piece, THEIA, have harnessed the rugged terrain of the Peak District to bring the world their blend of hard rock n roll. It’s a classic rock feel for the modern era, played with a smile on it’s face.
Raised on his father’s record collection of Marc Bolan, Alice Cooper and AC/DC, mainman, Kyle Lamley (guitar/lead vocals) teamed up with lifelong friend, Paul Edwards (bass/vocals) to form the spine of the band, with drummer Jake Dalton recruited in 2016 to complete the current line-up; and after two early well received EPs, THEIA released their debut album in September 2015.
Entitled, Take The Pill, it was a self-funded release and a huge slab of angst and melodic noise that delivered the chunky guitar of Zakk Wylde; the ripping bass of the late, great, Lemmy Kilmister all married to a hard-hitting drum sound that drives it all along.
They continued to lay the groundwork for a bright future in 2016, heading out on the road for a mixture of headline, support and festival shows across the UK including Hard Rock Hell X.
A second album is being recorded, and is due to be released in Spring 2017.
