Biography

The Ruined are a 5-piece horror-punk band from Peterborough, UK with influences including The Offspring, The Misfits, Ramones, Turbonegro, The Cult and The Damned. The band consists of: Nekro (Vocals/Keyboards), Dammit (Guitar/Backing Vocals), The Cream (Guitar/Backing Vocals), Ian (Bass) and AC (Drums).

The band formed in the summer of 2004 and have since completed numerous UK tours and a European tour, along with releasing many split EPs.

Their long awaited LP, ‘Hear Lies’, was released through Rowdy Farrago on Halloween 2006 to a ravage of fans salivating like zombies and critics moistening their vampire fangs. It was met with overwhelming praise and the album has received positive reviews in fanzines and popular music press.

At the launch party for ‘Hear Lies’, they also unveiled the video to lead single ‘Death Will Be A Lady’.

The band is currently writing their follow-up album, which should be out later this year. They are embarking on a UK tour in October.

    nope, im just talking in terms of the attitude towards it. Unless you chance live in a city with some kind of emerging scene its hard to say theres any kind of rock movement, i just dont see it amongst people. I couldnt name an awful lot of modern rock bands that I like either who have released albums recently unless theyre established acts or really really obscure, or playing some form of extreme metal or punk. I dont know haha! I think in relation to my first though - someone said the ruined were a hot topic band, thats because rock music is and can be a lot more commercial and unwholesome in america coz its bigger over there, so there are more posers, the ruined arent posers is what i was getting at haha

    bit harsh haha. Being english near these guys we dont really appreciate the whole hot topic thing, but rock is kinda dead in the uk at the moment so its not quite the same environment
