White Clouds & Gunfire explode onto the UK scene with their debut EP ‘Zero To Hero’. Jam-packed with a heady mix of blistering tunes and meshed with rampant energy and fiery youth, ‘Zero To Hero’ sets the stage for a swift ascent, aimed to place White Clouds & Gunfire at the forefront of the national scene.
Although the band were formed in 2008 in Peterborough, because they were impeded by member changeovers and a lack of stability, it wasn’t until last year that White Clouds & Gunfire really began to flourish. Featuring Eveline Verdegaal on vocals, Lewis Fountain banging the drums, Rob Woods providing the backbone on bass, Jake shredding on guitar, and now with new boy Ben Scarr (current guitarist with ‘As We Climb’) adding a second guitar to the mix, the band’s sound is even more expansive and burly.
With recent praise from Kerrang!, Soundscape, and Stencil Magazine, and already versed in the art of transit-van touring, where the energetic quintet supported Army Of Freshmen, Sonic Boom Six, OPM, MC Lars, The Hype Theory, and As We Climb, to name just a few, the band show no signs of letting up. WC&G also recently unveiled an exclusive video for ‘Dreams’, a previously unreleased track; the video has racked up over 6000 views on You Tube—a noteworthy feat considering that it was achieved with just fan-based promotion. After locking down an impressive array of new songs and a brand new set, White Clouds & Gunfire now set their sights on an extensive foray of shows throughout the country, penned for November 2012.
White Clouds & Gunfire now move forward with the national release of their debut EP ‘Zero To Hero; already inspiring glowing comparisons to the likes of Four Year Strong, Fall Out Boy, and Funeral For A Friend, the record is an exciting debut offering loaded with melody-drenched refrains, pounding jack hammer beats, and monstrous sing-a-long choruses. White Clouds & Gunfire have sculptured a record that is sure to take the energetic combo to brand new heights.
