Biography

The People formed in the summer of 2002 and immediately set about recording the now famous lost untitled debut. Songs such as Zion Gate formed the basis of what was to become their sound. Their second self titled mini-album was released by Hijacked records in 2004. Recorded as live as possible over several days, new textures were developed and songs such as I’ll Promise You Better displayed a songwriting craft that was both complcated yet accessable. By the time of the recording of their latest album, Desire, The Devil and the Ghost it had become clear that new influences were starting to appear in their sound. A concept album of sorts which delves into the human condition and addresses such issues as love, sex, unfaithfullness and salvation. The recording was jinxed throughout resulting in the loss of a band member, spiralling costs, dropped songs and the breakdown of personal relationships. In the face of such adversity the backbone of the band remained focused and completed the sessions resulting in a tense yet rewarding work. The band are currently writing a new double album penciled in for an end of year release. New songs such as 3:46, Until I leave on the evening stage, Henry O’, Favorite son and The Dance hint at a revival of the old protest songs of the 30’s and 40’s. The story of The People is one that is tainted with death, heartache, debt and missed opportunities, however these handicaps have become the fuel that powers their engine New album “Desire, The Devil and The Ghost” is out now on Hijacked Records - available to purchase here: http://hijackedrecords.bigcartel.com
