NUMB release their self-titled debut album on 1st September via Attic Records.
This fierce, hard driving rocker throws up fabulous tunes track after track, showcasing twists, grooves and surprises galore and the end result is a truly stunning album, made even more so by the fact this is their debut offering. An extremely exciting future awaits this formidable quartet.
Established in 2015, a rekindled long term musical collaboration between guitarist songwriter Darren Caven-Quantrill and multi-instrumentalist composer Barney Byron (The Calling, Audioeinstein) joined forces with unknown but talented lyricist and vocalist Lee Rayner.
An album’s worth of original material was rapidly composed with the fresh writing partnership says Rayner, “Darren and me just clicked and we immediately knew we had a unique sound, some might hear the Randy Rhoads/Osbourne esque guitars? Some may hear our combined appreciation of bands like System of a Down? Others possibly the punk edge of the Dead Kennedys? The angst of Rage against the Machine? or even the neo classical Muse edge?”
The band was soon joined by drummer Damo Falkowski (Deadeye) whose technical and powerful style yielded the modern edge that defines Numb’s resonance.
Excited as they were with the new sounds they were laying down, Numb never anticipated the buzz and enthusiasm they received from the first string of gigs locally “it gave us the real desire to take the time to perfect our unique sound – we took the old industry route! Demoed the entire album first, taking our time and this allowed us to craft an album which not only met our expectations musically but we now honestly feel deserves to be exposed and out there” says Caven-Quantrill.
“The songs are semi-autobiographical” remarks Rayner “they are extremely personal – this is Real Life Rock”.
