Biography

Sons Of Icarus, a brand new, young, British, organic, visceral four piece hard rock band, are all set to soar into rock’s heady stratosphere with the release of their debut 4 track EP, ‘You Want It All’, via itunes etc. on December 19th.

Vocalist Andy Masson and his bassist brother Alex met drummer Mike ‘Quilly’ Mcquillan at school in Brackley, Northamptonshire, where they got together as a three piece and jammed constantly in a mate’s garage, covering classic AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith songs.

Originally named The Fury, the trio moved to Guildford and enrolled at the Academy of Contemporary Music, where they met and recruited guitarist Steve Balkwill. Initially mainly classic rock / blues oriented, they soon incorporated Steve’s stoner rock background (he grew up riffing to Kyuss and Orange Goblin) to develop their own unique brand of full throttle, high octane, straight ahead, JD swilling, grinding hard rock.

After beating hundreds of groups to win Marshall Amplifiers’ ‘Ultimate Band Contest’ in December 2010, Sons Of Icarus won major management representation, and, subsequently, opening slots at both 2011’s Download and Sonisphere Festivals.

Sons Of Icarus then stepped up to the plate to play explosive support slots around London with the likes of Vintage Trouble, Black Spiders, Rival Sons, Hayseed Dixie, The Answer, and Orange Goblin.

Now, having recorded their simply stunning debut 4 track EP, Sons of Icarus are set to ignite live audiences across the country.
