Biography

Formed in autumn 2008 by Andy Gilmour of Hundred Reasons, and Jon Pearce and Guy Davis of Reuben. Joined soon after by guitarist Tom Stevens of Archie & The Instincts. Singer Chris Knott (Twelve Titans) joined the band late 2010.

From the official website:

Since its inception in late 2008, ‘Freeze The Atlantic’ have had a solid ethos at their core – making rock music and enjoying rock music. Started initially by Andy Gilmour from ‘Hundred Reasons’ with Jon Pearce and Guy Davis, from the band ‘Reuben’, they quickly signed up second guitarist and long time friend Tom Stevens (Archie and the Instincts) and started writing brand new material. After a UK tour in 2010 with ‘Attack! Attack!’ featuring Liv Puente (Laruso) on guest vocals, the band recruited singer Chris J Knott (Twelve Titans) and bassist Sean Shreeve (Spectrum 7/Talking Endlessly) who replaced the outgoing Jon Pearce.

2011 and 2012 saw some huge steps forward for the band – a self-produced debut EP ‘Colour by Numbers’ was released through the independent label Alcopop! The limited edition physical release of the EP shipped with colour by numbers artwork (complete with free crayons!) and the digital version instantly became the most pre-ordered mp3 on Play.com, a great success for the band. The lead track ‘Waking Up’ received numerous radio airplay nationwide, including Radio One and Xfm.

Most importantly it also saw the band finish their debut album, ‘Speakeasy’; a culmination of all of the bands efforts of the past two years, the album was recorded and produced entirely by the band when and wherever they could.

    Love these guys, still not sure on the vocalist change. Nonetheless, they put on a good show the other week!

    Chris was my favourite of the three, but different strokes.

    Have to agree on Chris as vocalist...and having seen them with Live a couple of weeks back I also have to say that, if possible, his voice is even weaker and more generic. Shame.

    Oh man, the guy who sounds more or less identical? can't wait. I realise how bitter it sounds, but I really wish they'd stuck with Daniel Flay. Listening to their stuff with him earlier and the difference is incredible

    well lucky for you ripscarspitstar, Chris has left the band :p. Maybe he saw your review and took it to heart? Glad that Liv from Laruso is replacing him though, he has some pipes!

    Yeah, it arrived for me too. I preferred the original without JP myself, as good as his voice is. Seems a bit forced. Still, can't complain about the album at all!

    Really? It's a tune! Proper 90s vibe. Love Guy's drumming as well. I know people might say "yeah, but they're not Reuben" but virtually everything I've heard so far has been class - some real catchy choons

    Not feeling Volcanoes at all I have to say. Fingers crossed the album will be better.

    Yeah I am Jonzo, thanks for the kind words! We should have some album news very soon, and we've started writing new music for after that too.. It sucks that it's taken so long to get everything sorted but we wanted to do things properely.. Also we have no money! But soon.. good things are coming

    Can't wait to hear the album, really looking forward to hearing guest vocals from JP Reid and Colin from Hundred Reasons. I can tell this album will be my favourite of 2012!
