October Drift

When October Drift appeared at the start of 2015 with their beefy yet melodic sound, they had the confidence to win over audiences.

Ever since then, from multiple sold out tours up and down the UK, to growing online hype around their sparse but eloquent releases, they’ve done just that, becoming a major success story on the independent circuit. And while staying independent and playing every town and city that will have you wasn’t exactly the stylish thing to do in 2016, October Drift’s irresistible combination of feedback and harmonies shook every room in the country.

Soon signing with Physical Education Records, releasing their stunning acoustic EP 'Naked' and their hugely successful debut album 'Forever Whatever', the band are continuing to build momentum at an alarming rate. With a solid foundation built over years of touring and writing, the album affirmed the band’s place as an important new presence, with their heavy, pop-inflected rock delivering a rejuvenating injection of fresh blood to the genre. The album was met with widespread critical acclaim on release, garnering praise from the likes of NPR, CLASH, Kerrang, Louder Than War, In Stereo Magazine and many more.

Having already thrilled audiences at festivals including Glastonbury’s John Peel Stage, Reading & Leeds and The Great Escape, as well as on a major European tour with Editors and a slot at Liverpool’s Sound City, the album and brand new EP together condense years of relentless touring and expertly crafted performance into showcases of flawless songwriting; statements of intent from a band more than ready to cement their place as future icons.
