THEIA release new single ‘Home’


IMG_8735c

THEIA have released their new single ‘Home’ on 18th August 2017.

This track is simply wonderful, a feather light touch from Kyle & the boys, a song brimful of lilting melodies, acoustic guitars and soaring emotions, really something rather special.

Hailing from the heart of England’s ale brewing capital, on the edge of the National Forest, Burton-on-Trent three-piece, THEIA, have harnessed the rugged terrain of the Peak District to bring the world their blend of hard rock n roll. It’s a classic rock feel for the modern era, played with a smile on it’s face.

Quote from the band about ‘Back In Line’:
“We’re so proud and excited to bring this album into people’s lives – simply because it’s been such a huge part of our own lives! Back In Line has brought about a big step up in our songwriting and storytelling process… it feels like this album is tearing its way out of the speakers, grabbing you by the ears and demanding that you rock from the first moment to the last! You’ve taken the pill; now get back in line!”

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 guitarsSome 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?”
