Colour Of Noise Band

UK rockers Colour of Noise have been confirmed to play at this years Download Festival on Sunday 14th June, 2015, further solo dates to be announced soon. From Little Angels’ Bruce John Dickinson comes a new rock band called Colour of Noise, steeped in the tradition of the late 60’s British blues boom, and early 70’s stadium rock. Joining Bruce is singer Matt Mitchell (Pride and Furyon) and Randy Nixon on drums (Magic Bullet Band, Jeevas, Straw). The band also features Dan Electro on rhythm guitar and ‘Silent’ Ben Daniel on bass.

Colour Of Noise describe themselves as from the school of classic rock and wear their influences of Free, Bad Company and Led Zeppelin amongst others, fully visible on their collective sleeves – ‘great songs recorded in the old fashioned way’. They use carefully chosen vintage and custom guitars, backline and record onto two inch tape.

Colour of Noise are launching their debut album through PledgeMusic, the direct-to-fan website that allows fans to participate and be part of the making of the album. As well as signed CDs, vinyl and merchandise, Colour of Noise’s PledgeMusic campaign includes studio visits, updates and exclusive tracks – including when you sign up to the Pledge campaign an immediate download of their first single ‘Head On’.
