Exeter four-piece Idiom are at the forefront of the welcomed 2009 rock-rap revival. Formed in Devon in 2005, the hard-working collective take influence from bands as diverse and eclectic as Incubus, Rage Against The Machine, SiKth, System Of A Down and Deftones.

The group have self-released two EPs through their own Dirt Track label, both produced by former Dub War members Jeff and Ginge at the Not In Pill Studios in Newport, Wales.

2006’s Side Show enabled the band showcase their debut tracks on local stages, and 2007’s follow-up Twelve Bar Blues propelled the energetic crew onto a full UK and European tour with Californian nu-metal gods Hed(pe).

In 2007 the group played the infamous Bulldog Bash and Bloodstock festivals in the UK, and in early 2008 the group returned to the stage for a European run of shows with New York hardcore titans and Vagrant Records moshers From Autumn To Ashes. The successful mainland run also included a string of shows with upcoming UK heavyweights Bring Me The Horizon and Brighton superstars Architects.

In May 2008, after hearing the group’s studio material, Benji Webbe – vocalist for Welsh raga-rockers Skindred – personally invited the group onto an impressive two month run of 35 shows around the UK, with Idiom vocalist Matt joining the headliners on stage for a nightly rendition of hit Nobody to packed venues across the country.
