With incredible dexterity for unleashing upbeat punk-infused engaging college rock, underpinned by infectious pop rock sensibilities, Altered Sky deliver a spirited sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries. The much revered rock outfit stride forward with the release of their new video single Stupid In the Dark everywhere on Friday 29th July.
Coming at you from Glasgow, and born out of hard work and absolute commitment, Altered Sky already have an array of impressive achievements including supporting We Are In The Crowd, Wonder Years, Decade, State Champs, A Loss For Words and Neck Deep, as well as playing Slam Dunk Scotland in 2014. The emerging tunesmiths have also headlined shows at The Garage in Glasgow and London’s famous 100 Club in Camden.
Altered Sky have always embodied a strong DIY ethos ever since launching their self-financed debut EP, In This World. The five-some followed this release with their critically acclaimed Stop and Live EP, which further cemented the band’s growing reputation. In 2015, the Scottish rocksters released their self-funded debut album, Without Wonderland, with Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend, Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon) at the helm. The album was lapped up by fans and industry tastemakers with Kerrang! Magazine awarding the record with a glowing KKKK review. The popular quintet dropped their video single Waves from the album, racking up acclaim from broadcasting legend ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, as well as widespread radio airplay from Kerrang Radio, TeamRock and BBC Radio 2. The band have since gone on to pick up further praise from Apple Music and Huffington Post, as well as vastly multiplying their ever increasing fan-base.
The band now release their third single from Without Wonderland, entitled Stupid In The Dark, which lands on 29th July. The single coincides with Altered Sky’s next run of UK tour dates and acoustic appearances scheduled across Pulp stores. With the album’s fourth and final single ready to be launched in the Autumn to tie in with the band’s Glasgow Garage show, the future is certainly looking luminous for this unstoppable rock crew.
