It may or may not have been the collision of an ancient ball of rock named THEIA with Earth which led to the creation of the moon…
…but scientists cannot argue about the landscape-changing impact of the trio of the same name on the UK rock scene. Stirring inspiring flavours from the likes of Buckcherry, Winterville, Black Stone Cherry and many more into the band’s own distinct recipe of rebellious rock, it is fair to say that THEIA whipped up keen attention and support with a pair of self-titled EP’s in 2013. Together, they offered six virulent slices of fiery rock music which set the tone of the band’s sound and a rich base to push and evolve from.
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.
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 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. Take The Pill was critically acclaimed the length and breadth of the UK.
They continue to lay the groundwork for a bright future having released a second single, Some Days, in February 2016 before heading out of the road for a mixture of headline and festival shows across the UK.
