Barnsley’s Exit Calm are set to release new single ‘Promise’ on the 20th January. Taken from the critically acclaimed album, ‘The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be’, ‘Promise’ is a psychedelic spaced-out trip, perfectly balanced on a sonic groove that explodes into pure euphoria and emotion.
Described by Guitarist Magazine as "one of the best British guitar bands of the last 25 years", Exit Calm produce music of epic proportions with heart, style and integrity. The talent of Rob Marshall’s haunting guitar work and the raw but compelling vocals of Nicky Smith have made them a firm favourite on the live circuit.
Recent live shows showcase the modern- baggy-meets-grunge anthem blow out of ‘The Rapture’; the breakbeat-tinged fury of ‘Albion’ and the melodic, Bunnymen guitars and groove of ‘Fiction’. In the current era of disposable heroes, Exit Calm tread a different path. From a band who simply list their influences as three legendary record labels, their output invokes the same classic approach to music as Creation Records. They bring the euphoria and hedonism of Factory to the progressive, with the forward thinking ideals of Mo Wax.
The band are set to hit the road for a handful of UK tour dates at the end of January kicking off at the Water Rats, London on Monday 27th January.
Exit Calm have supported the likes of Modest Mouse, Echo & The Bunnymen, The Boxer Rebellion and Soulsavers and taken to the stage at V Festival and Tokyo’s Liquid Rooms to name a few.
Exit Calm is Nicky Smith (vocals), Rob Marshall (Guitars), Simon Lindley (Bass) and Scott Pemberton (Drums).
