Bromheads Jacket formed in Sheffield in 2005, from the ashes of a band called Fixated. Although often compared to other Sheffield bands who found fame around the same time, such as Arctic Monkeys and Milburn, the band have a somewhat heavier style and differ due to singer Tim Hampton's southern England accent (he was raised in Yateley, Hampshire).
The band have so far released five singles: 'Woolley Bridge', 'What Ifs + Maybes', 'Trip to the Golden Arches', 'Lesley Parlafitt' and 'Speaker Box'. All were released on the Marquis Chacha record label. They have undertaken several tours of the UK as well as played across Europe in Spain at the Summercase Festival, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands. In 2005 they undertook a nationwide tour with Club NME, and played South By Southwest in Texas.
Their first album, Dits from the Commuter Belt, was released on November 13th 2006 and was followed by a tour of over 30 gigs around the UK supported by the Middlesbrough group The Oxfam Glamour Models.
In 2006 the band recorded a cover of The Streets' single 'When You Wasn't Famous', which was released on the b-side of the song's 7" (with Skinner reportedly being a big fan of Bromheads, in particular of Hampton's lyrical style and ability). The single reached number 8 in the UK charts.
Their song 'Fight Music for the Fight' is featured in the PSP game Burnout Dominator and the new Burnout Paradise on PS3 and Xbox 360.
Their second album, 'On The Brain', was released on September 22nd 2008.
They have also played the London Calling festival in Amsterdam to a great reception. The band are due to release their much awaited third album in early 2009.
