Sonic Boom Six
SONIC BOOM SIX, the explosive and outspoken Manchester-based five-piece, are the most compelling soundclash to rise from the underground in years. A true product of their city-centre environment, The Booms sound is as authentic as it is unique. Described by Kerrang! as taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid, SB6 play firmly for the dance-floor while retaining enough power and aggression to be an active fixture of the UK's rock and punk scenes.
Having toured the UK, Europe, the US and Japan constantly for the last five years (while also managing to release three albums) the band took time out in 2011 to write the SONIC BOOM SIX album and record it with Peter Miles (The King Blues, Futures, We Are The Ocean). The release of the infectious first single 'For The Kids of The Multiculture' gained SB6 a new audience and industry champions, being playlisted on national and regional radio and TV, gaining Single Of The Week on Kerrang! Radio and being chosen as Record of The Day on industry tastemaker site recordoftheday.com. 2011 summer headline slots at Sonisphere and Hevy cemented their standing as one of the UKs great live acts. After storming shows at HMV's Next Big Thing and Brighton's Great Escape festivals, SB6 spent early 2012 talking to several record labels to find the right partnership for the albums release.
SONIC BOOM SIX are proud to announce the release of the superb, perception-challenging, self-titled new album, SONIC BOOM SIX, on their brand new label, Xtra Mile Recordings, on October 15th. The band can also announce a month-long November headline tour, starting on November the 2nd in Nottingham and ending on November 24th in Newport, followed by a headline tour of Europe. The next single from the album will be 'Virus', released September 17th.
