Innovative live & in the studio, we create the sound of a four-piece band, which is a spectacle to see/hear live & is equally as impressive on record.
A Guitar/Bass & Drum duo from the North West of England with songs & a sound that not only separates us from other duo’s but other bands. Our sound has been described as Alt Rock/Indie/Dance/Funk (all styles we happily take influence from) but we see ourselves simply as a Rock duo.
Originally a Bass & Drum duo created by Phil Ireland & featured Adam Darwen on drums, the sound has naturally evolved into the range of a full 4 piece band, especially now Peat Hicks is back hitting the skins as the bands full time drummer. Peat & Phil played together for 5 years in our previous band (Exit State) as Bassist & Drummer, which creates a metronomic groove/ rhythm section connection like no other.
Together we have impressive musical accolades under our belts, playing alongside Mallory Knox/Michael Schenker/Gun/Reckless Love/Marseille & touring all over the UK & Europe in venues such as The Ritz Manchester/02 Arena Glasgow/Shepard’s Bush Empire! also recently hosting a gig at the 02 academy Islington & have become regulars at Londons 229 venue!
Explosive & High Energy performers live, with a sound that matches our recorded material & a great imagination for music videos, check out our YouTube channel to hear & see more at www.youtube.com/breakingwavesband & our music & make up your own mind….
HELL FIRE JACK
'A pair of angry bastards, loud as Hell'
Hell Fire Jack is an explosive brutal blues duo from Yorkshire, England.
The duo has so far taken their high-octane, no-holds- barred take on the blues to audiences across the UK and, with the release of their first full-length album ‘Chains’ in February 2018, plan to strengthen their grip on the alternative scene even further. A strong reference to mental instability, insecurity and a constant struggle with modern life is evident in many of the band’s songs.
Despite this morose, almost inherently depressive lyrical content, the delivery is anything but. Live sets are fast-paced and uncompromising with fuzzed-up riffs, captivating rhythms and steely slide guitar.
If you’re looking for a raw and intense musical experience, Hell Fire Jack is definitely a band worth checking out.
