Biography

Sheffield, United Kingdom (2001 – present)

65daysofstatic began in Sheffield, United Kingdom in 2001 as Iain Armstrong, Paul Wolinski and Joe Shrewsbury. They originally formed to try to write music to fit the unreleased and little known John Carpenter film, ‘Stealth Bomber’ (starring Kurt Russell).

65daysofstatic (also known by the abbreviation 65dos or 65days) are an and band from Sheffield, UK. Their debut album, The Fall of Math (2004), was released to critical acclaim.

The band intersperses heavy, progressive, guitar-driven instrumental sections with both -esque programmed and live drums. Their albums, as a result, maintain a distinctively gritty, almost feel.

Armstrong left in May 2003, Feedle (Graham Clarke) then joined for a brief period and played a part in writing the band’s first single from The Fall of Math, Retreat! Retreat!. By the end of 2003 Rob Jones (drums) and Gareth Hughes (bass) had been recruited, increasing the band to four members. Gareth left around the time of the release of their debut album, The Fall of Math, to be replaced by Simon Wright.

The second album, One Time for All Time (2005), had a discrete success. In the same year they remixed Burn from the album Crimson by Alkaline Trio. The track appears on one 7inch vinyl out of a set of 2.

The third LP, The Destruction of Small Ideas (2007), was indeed a hit with fans and critics. It was anticipated by the release of its single Don’t Go Down to Sorrow.
