Crashgate – Tear It Down

crashgate BAND IMAGE - LOW RES 260kb

The UK rock scene is a bubbling cauldron of predatory invention and ferocious enterprise right now, especially in the underground scene. Kent band Crashgate is one of the reasons and right to the fore of the bands picking up steam to seriously challenge and stand aside the big boys in the future. Further evidence of this comes with new single Tear It Down, a raucous and rousing slab of aggressive rock ‘n’ roll fusing metal fury to a melodic hard rock tempest.

An attention grabbing proposition from almost day one after forming in 2011, Crashgate has increasingly grown in sound and stature. From a feverishly supported local attraction, the Deal hailing quintet has inspired a national bred buzz around themselves thanks to an adrenaline fuelled live presence and equally impacting releases. 2012 saw the band’s first release, the B.O.B EP igniting a breath of greater interest but it was debut album Crude Jokes, Death Notes & Unicorns which pushed and confirmed Crashgate as one of Britain’s rising rock talents. 2014 was a highly successful year for the band which they now continue with Tear It Down, a track hailing from their first album. Ever insatiable live and working towards their second album, Crashgate are at that point where big spotlights are surely beckoning.

Tear It Down opens with big bulging beats which soon lure in just as hungry and feisty riffs. It is a powerful lead which is only reinforced as the impressive vocals of Craig Sheridan start to roar alongside the fiery enterprise of guitarists Brian Andrews and Toby Dorman, both also providing some bracing backing snarls and vocals. The song soon shows it has a melodic heart but within a body unafraid to threateningly growl and unleash a predacious assault, an intimidation driven by the heavy swipes of drummer Richard Keeler and the black hearted and alluring basslines of Shaun Roche.

The single continues to kick up a thrilling storm, hooks and twists as addictively persuasive as the main blazing thrust of the thoroughly compelling proposition. Tear It Down confirms British rock is in a very healthy state and thanks to bands like Crashgate and songs like itself, a voraciously exciting one too.

Tear It Down is available from March 2nd
