Biography

The Crimea are an English band via Ireland, Wales and Zimbabwe, based in Camden and formed in 2002

One of the band's earliest breaks came when Davey spotted Fran Healy of Travis and took his chance to pass him a demo. A week later The Crimea opened for Travis at Brixton Academy.

Containing former members of The Crocketts, The Crimea had a single, "Baby Boom", in the famous John Peel's festive 50 (reaching #8) and have recently released their album "Tragedy Rocks" on the back of several succesful UK tours, notably supporting Ash, Kings Of Leon, Billy Corgan, Stereophonics, Jimmy Eat World and appearing on the same Carling stage at the Reading and Leeds festivals as the now famous Arctic Monkeys. Recently, singles "Lottery Winners On Acid" and "White Russian Galaxy" have recieved airplay on MTV2, and the band have been recieving fervent reviews of their live show, mainly based on the crowd based antics of singer Davey and their "satanic bubble machine".

In 2007 they released their latest album, Secrets of the Witching Hour, as an entirely free download.
