Kasabian Vs. The Chemical Brothers? Primal Scream Vs. Oasis. The Exits’ upbeat mix of synth rock seems unlikely, but has already caught the attention of a sect of hardcore supporters in the South coast and beyond.

By late 2007 the band had already performed at the HI FI South Festival, the Primal Scream end of tour after show party, and supported sets from indie legends like Bez (Happy Mondays, Black Grape), and Mani (The Stone Roses, Primal Scream) to name but a few. Less than modest names for a modest bunch of lads.

Energetic and passionate, their electro rock is just finding its growing fanbase and more recently seen a number of sold out shows including the Brixton Jamm, The Wedgewood Rooms and the Portsmouth Guildhall.

In late 2007 the band struck a publishing deal with independent publisher Seeca Music. Soon after, in February 2008, The Exits signed a record deal with London based independent record label, Criminal Records and are currently working on their debut album.

The band’s sound continually evolves from guitar based with a smattering of electronica, to a heavy synthesised, dance orientated audio assault.

The Exits debut single ’Neon City’ and self-titled EP was released earlier this year (2008) through Criminal Records (Universal / AM / THE). The Exits received front page HMV exposure in recommended releases, 7digital track of the week and newsletter feature, iTunes exclusive, plus a Bebo video featuring receiving over 100,000 views. In addition they have excellent reviews and immense radio support, including BBC London, Radio 1 Northern Ireland, Kerrang Radio (ones to watch), plus a music award for ‘Best Song 2008’ presented at an awards ceremony by Portsmouth FM in their hometown.
