Manchester-based alt-rock trio PEUR unveil their new single, An Exercise in Abstinence, on Friday 13th October. Hitting your senses with a sound that fuses the edgy dexterity of Nine Inch Nails with the hook-laden know-how of Biffy Clyro, PEUR are a band that you must hear.
Ferociously impressive and massive in sound, PEUR deliver bold, roaring alt-rock that’s as melodic as it is heavy. Formed at the start of 2013, members Joe Lomax (Guitar/Vocals), Ryan Greenhalgh (Bass) and Sam Tempest (Percussion) bring an enthralling and unique vision of music, striking a balance between heavy instruments and the very best elements of hard and alternative rock sounds. With influences ranging from Muse and 65daysofstatic to Northlane, their broad taste allows them to write music with complexity and mainstream appeal. To date, PEUR have supported a host of artists panning from the DZ Deathrays, Allusondrugs, and Dearly Beloved, to Empty Yard Experiment, and the band have also received prominent radio coverage from independent, commercial FM and Internet radio shows, including BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music.
2015 was a successful year for the industrious trio, as their widely received sophomore EP, Future Architects, brought the alt-rockers much national attention and also earned them a slot at T In The Park. The band then spent the vast majority of 2016 penning tracks for their debut album, which lands later this year. Before this, PEUR mark their return with the release a new single, which has been produced by long term collaborator Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns), entitled, An Exercise in Abstinence. The single is a dynamic slab of captivating alt-rock laced with alluring phrasing that is destined to ignite. PEUR also tour throughout October; see below for dates:
