Introducing a new noise from the Midlands...
KEY TRACK: Choke
LABEL: Holy Roar Records
MANAGEMENT: Brady Deeprose
WHO: Meet metal foursome Conjurer. Singing guitarists Dan Nightingale and Brady Deeprose provide two-tone vocal texture, thunderously backed by bassist Conor Marshall and drummer Jan Krause.
WHAT: The band describe their sound as ‘riff music’. Their resistance to specifics is a reaction to their feeling of separation from any kind of UK metal scene, which is where their hometown comes in…
WHERE: Conjurer are from Rugby in Warwickshire, a place bereft of heavy music makers where isolation afforded them the freedom to craft their sound.
Yeah, good one… Bad gags aside, Conjurer’s rise has been rapid, last year’s debut album Mire has established them as one of the most exciting loud bands to come out of the UK in years. Will Haven love them, too.
ANYTHING ELSE I CAN HEAR?
Yes. This summer, Conjurer hooked up with Manchester post-rockers Pijn for Curse These Metal Hands, a four-track project named after a Peep Show quote.
IS THERE A TOUR?
A seven-date UK run begins on October 24 in Nottingham. Few tickets remain, so don’t delay.
