To really start at the begining takes this story way back to our school years of 1998.......
Ben and Matt used to write songs in Ben's bedroom, sitting for hours jamming to one anothers riffs trying to get enough material together to start a band.
Matt got an opportunity to join another band playing Bass guitar, which he did for about a year....playing numerous small gigs in Norwich. When that eventually came to an end it started things moving again.....
Ben and Matt quickly started looking for a drummer after several searches they had their prayers answered when close friend Martin agreed to join....after only a short time together they got their first gig playing at their "leaving ceremony" at school. All went well but unfortunatly that would be the last time they would play together for nearly 3 years.
In early 2004 Ben's master plan was, as ever, to get a band and kick some ass. So once again Matt was called in to play guitar ( There is a personal joke between Matt and Ben about how they are destined to be in a band together due to the countless attempts they have been through together - "LOVE YOU DUDE!") and after begging Martin for at LEAST 6 months he too joined.....
It was a crucial time for the band when Mike joined and he really made this band fly.....with countless ideas and input he added further to what we were trying to achieve. After his first practice with the band everyone knew he was what we were looking for....With the line-up complete we were offered a gig at The Nelson pub in Norwich playing with DEN OF INIQUITY. We had unbelievable support that night and had fantastic praise from the other band and the venue its self which landed us several BIG future gigs.
Early 2005 saw us go into the studio to record a 4 track CD at Purple studios in Norwich. We recorded over 2 days. This was a great time for us as it was what we wanted for so many years and worked so hard to achieve.....
Once all the tracks were recorded we went away with a rough copy of our CD. It still had to be edited and mastered but we wanted opinions before that crucial stage. It was decided that a singer had to be found to finish off the CD......
We found our singer in the awesome Robert (Robby. C to you!) This guy was at all of our gigs and came with us when we went to Purple Studios. He came to one of our practices and agreed to try singing.....No-one regretted it, he was putting everything into it that he had. When Rob is on stage there is something about him....he is a wicked frontman....
So, that brings this to the present day....THE UNSUNG HEROES.
We are playing some wicked venues and the bands we have played with never fail to impress....With more gigs coming up, CD on the way in May and the promise of gigging outside of Norwich looming things are well and truly looking UP for THE UNSUNG HEROES.
