The Brink are a band who are bringing back the music of classic guitar groups. Echoing everything from AC/DC to Aerosmith, the band’s sound transports classic rock into the 2st Century. Their debut album ‘Would You Love Her’ is out on October 28th. Get to know the band better.
1. How did you get your initial start in music?
We all started at a young age, growing up with rock and blues music. Bands like Motley Crue, Whitesnake, Led Zepplin, Deep Purple, Hendrix. It was listening to bands like these that really drove us to want to learn, and eventually make, music.
2. What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?
Our ultimate aim in the industry would be to tour the world and have our music known globally.
3. How long have you been writing your own music?
As individual musicians we’ve been writing our own music from very early ages, 16 or so. The band itself has been writing original material for around 4 years, with the current line-up the writing process has only been going for about 6 months.
4. Who are your top three influences and why?
Our top 3 influences would have to be Bon Jovi, Skid Row and Aerosmith. These bands have always been big influences for us growing up, the passion and emotion the artists put in their tracks has always made us want to create something similar.
5. Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?
Our brand new album will be available from October 29th, there will be a digital download available on iTunes, as well as physical copies available on Amazon and at gigs.
6. Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?
We’re based from all over Cambridgeshire, but our main “local” scene would have to be King’s Lynn. The local music scene has been growing over the past few years with the h
elp of promoters and the local radio station and it has really started to take shape. Our favourite venues would have to be the Ye Olde Maidens Head and Bar Red. They always have a fantastic crowd who love to party and have fun with us.
7. Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?
There are many bands we perform with from our local scene, the main one for people to look out for would probably be Bad Touch. They’re good friends of ours, with a good, solid rock and roll sound.
