“I love what I hear and see. Great songs, clever lyrics and some excellent musical arrangement. This could be the biggest British prog-rock band of this decade!” Tony Fernandez (Drummer for Rick Wakeman, the Strawbs and Ruthless Blues)
“This band is definitely worth checking out. Driven guitar parts but with great use of melodic pianos show District Myths is not just about how fast or the loud the music can be. This is energetic rock with more of a leaning to mainstream pop rock than conventional prog. The self-titled debut is a good first stepping stone. Let see what they can do with album number two” Martin Hudson (editor of Classic Rock Society on the band and the self title debut album)
“These Londoners show their ability to be complex yet instant. There’s an audible connection to the neo-progressive movement, but the harmonies and alt rock moments also ensure they offer something extra. Their self-titled debut proves that this will be a band to watch in the coming year. They are truly individual.” Classic Rock Presents Prog Magazine
District Myths were formed in 2006 with the ambition to create a new style of progressive rock. The Band have played over 200 live shows working with LOUT Promotions playing sold out gigs at notable Sussex venue such as Concorde 2 and the Haunt; supporting the likes of Exit Ten and Forever Never.
Their self titled and produced debut released in January 2012 has caught attention both nationally and internationally, becoming viral on Facebook in 28 countries within the first month.
Positive Reviews from Big Cheese and Classic Rock Does Prog magazines (where the single ‘Heretic’ was featured in the covering CD) has further expanded the bands audience. Self produced, single videos such as ‘Unrequited’ has lead to online video streaming with NME magazine and publication on online magazines from the UK, Sweden and Russia.
Having recently recruited new members, District Myths are due to tour Europe later this year playing most notably at the Ride to Live, Live to Ride Festival in Portugal to 60,000 people of which previous acts have included Iron Maiden and Simply Red.
With interest from EMI records, the band are eager to progress to writing their second album as well as shooting and releasing new singles and music videos whilst continuing to attract new fans on notable festivals (such as the Great Escape) during the summer of 2012.
