Biography

Crewe, England (2006 – present)

Footprints In The Custard or “Footprints” for short are a straight up, balls to the wall hard rock/metal band from Crewe, England. No one-note breakdowns, no insane technical masturbation, no whining lyrics about bad relationships, no concern about image - just straight up riffs, solos, drum fills, mad bass lines, catchy hooks, and a sense of humour. As a good friend of the band put it, “it’s like the Clash meets Napalm Death”.

Footprints were formed from the remains of vocalist Russell Gregory and Guitarist Kyle Mcsweeny ‘s old band, All Greased Up in the later dates of August 2006. The two band members decided to move on and create something that completely “took the piss”. The result of this movement produced the song ‘Wank’ and laid the foundations of what the newly formed band were to build upon.

After recording a few demos, second voalist and former All Greased Up vocalist, Jake Madeley was brought in to add depth and bass to the demos with his slightly more growly tone. A few demos down the line produced the hit ‘On The Internet’ and it was with this that Footprints decided to take things a step further.

After a while searching second guitarist Ian Fraser was brought in to add thrashier sounds to the songs and funk bassist Matthew Evans was employed to bring a slightly different sound to the music produced. It was then that a drummer was needed.

However after a few practices it became apparent that guitarist Ian Fraser had the perfect mind for the drums that were to fit the songs and was often jamming them out himself.
