There are three bands that go by the name 'Clocks'. The first is a progressive deathcore act from Illinois, the second is an indie rock band from Epsom.
1) Clocks are a progressive , hard-hitting metal outfit, hailing from Bloomington, Illinois. With inspiration ranging from jazz to electronic and post rock, the five-piece has created an intricate, captivating aesthetic. Intense polymetric grooves coupled with soaring melody and profound lyrics take the listener through a wide array of moods and tonal landscapes.
With engineering and production in the hands of drummer/multi-instrumentalist Ian Sheridan and guitarist Dakota Roberts, Clocks brings a DIY work ethic and fresh perspective to modern metal. Their focus being on challenging themselves creatively, all while maintaining hooks that will pull in any metal fan.
The band released their debut EP, "Hardwiring the Human Mind" in June, 2011, and a follow-up EP entitled, "The Dividing Line", in June 2012. The Dividing Line garnered acclaim in the online metal community, with several tracks being featured in compilation videos and progressive metal mashups, in turn solidifying Clocks as a force to be reckoned with in the metal scene. Spring/Summer of 2013 will see the band record and release their third EP, brimming with Clocks' unique and charged brand of metal.
2) Clocks are an indie rock band from Epsom.
Vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tom Hewitt bought his first guitar using the birthday money he received just after finishing his GCSEs, and together with the other members of Clocks set about building up a repertoire of songs strongly influenced by the band members’ collective love of acts such as The La's, Love, Oasis, Shack, Teenage Fanclub, The Kinks and The Beatles.
In 2005, the band recorded a few demo tracks with producer Liam Watson (The White Stripes), followed by further studio sessions with producer Nick Southwood at The Exchange Studios in January 2006.
To date, Clocks have only released one strictly-limited 7" single, That Much Better b/w In My Arms, on London independent label Hungry Kid Records in August 2006, but that was enough to convince Island Records to sign the band.
3)1950's Doo Wop group. Featured song "It's Written"
