Welcome to the first ever official Thunderstone event!
We will be taking over The Fenton with our Biker themed American style rock gig with music from some of the best metal and hard rock acts Yorkshire has to offer.
Deadlock Saints/Steal The City/Stand Alone/Stone Cold Kill
Deadlock Saints are a balls to the wall, ground shaking four piece band. With an augmented blend of UK Heavy Metal and US Southern rock Deadlock Saints are the fresh faces of Britain's heavy metal might!
"Yeah, they're alright I suppose" - Anonymous man, 2017
Graham Finney (TotalNtertainment)
"Next up are Deadlock Saints who turn out to be not only the most popular of the four bands but also the highlight of the night. With big smiles on their faces, the quartet mix classic hard rock with a dose of humour to turn the dance floor into a big sweaty party. Hugely entertaining to watch, it comes as a surprise to find that the Saints are still in the early stages of their career."
Steal The City
Hailing from Sheffield, dynamic hard rock 4 piece outfit Steal The City are newcomers to the music scene but are purveyors of some of the sharpest hooked riffs and chorus lines this side of the Atlantic.
Musically Steal The City combine modern metal music with their gift of harmonious, progressive writing and follow their own path to get to the sound in which they are quickly becoming recognised for. The political landscape and the pressures of our modern times are subjects that Steal The City are not afraid to confront with lyrics such as “Is this the future that you fail to see? Or is the empire that you stand with crumbling at your feet? The holes in your stories are laid out before me – you cant silence us any more.” A message that people can most definitely relate to.
Forming in 2014, Steal The City wasted no time in crunching the gears into action and immediately started writing and honing in on their live set. While Individually submerged somewhere in the underground rock scene, they found each other through sharing the same passion, drive and commitment to music.
Touring around the North consistently and playing festivals such as Laycocks, Mapfest, Womfest and Tramlines (to name a few) has seen the band command a loyal following. Steal The City were hand picked to perform with Heavens Basement, Glamour Of The Kill, and Skindred - blowing people away with their energetic and mesmerising performances. Hell bent on impressing with their live experience, Steal The City channel the likes of A Day To Remember and While She Sleeps.
Steal The City are currently finalising their debut EP, set for release in 2018. In the meantime they are playing shows all around the UK.
Stand Alone were formed in the Bradford/Leeds area of West Yorkshire in May 2013 after the breakup of their other bands. The three members; Gavin Stevenson (Guitars, Piano, Lead Vocals) Luke Harrison (Bass, Vocals) and Tom Durrans (Drums, Vocals) teamed up as they shared the same vision musically.
Unapologetically powerful, charismatic and tightly presented, ‘Stand Alone’ combine the driven, heavy rock influences of Biffy Clyro and Alter Bridge with outstanding musicianship, soaring melodies and close harmonies influenced by The Beatles and other close harmony groups. This is an important factor in the band’s music with the members believing that as they are a 3 piece it fills the sound in, especially in a live setting.
Their trademark audience engagement and boundlessly energetic live performances have already seen them capture the loyalty of the local audience which is ever expanding as they grace more stages with their infectious musical style and love of Heavy Melodic Rock.
Stand Alones’ songs speak earnestly about overcoming adversity, rising through rough times, and feeling uplifted regardless of your status or place in life. This reflects all the experiences each member has dealt with including anxiety and depression.
The band are a very experienced live act and have gigged extensively together, taking in many cities up and down the UK. They have gained a fantastic live reputation locally and now are expanding further afield resulting in them being in demand for gigs.
The biggest gig of Stand Alones’ career so far was playing at Leeds O2 academy to an audience of over a thousand people in January 2017. This marked a milestone and an ambition of each member playing in such a prestigious venue where their heroes have also graced. This isn’t where it all ends though; it’s only the beginning with the band thirsty for more and a need to play the biggest gigs they can and let everyone hear their music.
