Bradford rockers Stand Alone have had the best nine months in the band’s history so far in 2018. Their singles Save You and Never Stand Alone have achieved considerable radio airplay, and helped them to attract fans both close to their Yorkshire base and across the country. But the hard hitting three piece are not a band to sit back when the going is good.
Stand Alone are delighted to announce details of their brand new upcoming EP “Falling, Faster”, which will be available everywhere on November 30th. The EP includes the aforementioned singles Save You and Never Stand Alone, as well as more tracks, the details of which will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Frontman Gavin Stevenson is very excited about getting Falling, Faster out to all their fans and beyond:
“I can’t wait for us to finally share this EP with everyone. It’s definitely the best material we have ever produced and reflects a big change within the band and an evolution of its sound.
It’s not been an easy ride. This material should have been with people way earlier and we butted heads to the point of killing each other but we got there in the end. We came out the other end with an ep we think is concise and shows us in our true light.
We are certainly better for it and it’s now time to move forward to the next level. See you on the road!”
The video for Stand Alone’s most recent single, their anthem of positivity Never Stand Alone can be seen below, providing a perfect introduction to Stand Alone’s ability to meld big riffs and huge melodies like few others can:
Stand Alone will be playing alongside their friends in Tomorrow Is Lost when both bands team up with Dead River Kings to provide a very special opening bill for Deever in Newcastle on Sunday 14th October. Tickets for the Deever show are available here.
Stand Alone were formed in the Bradford/Leeds area of West Yorkshire in May 2013. The three members; Gavin Stevenson (Guitars, Piano, Lead Vocals) Luke Harrison (Bass, Vocals) and Tom Durrans (Drums, Vocals) teamed up as they shared the same vision musically.
Unapologetically powerful, charismatic and tightly presented, ‘Stand Alone’ combine the driven, heavy rock influences of Biffy Clyro and Alter Bridge with outstanding musicianship, soaring melodies and close harmonies influenced by The Beatles and other close harmony groups. This is an important factor in the band’s music with the members believing that as they are a 3 piece it fills the sound in, especially in a live setting.
Their trademark audience engagement and boundlessly energetic live performances have already seen them capture the loyalty of the local audience which is ever expanding as they grace more stages with their infectious musical style and love of Heavy Melodic Rock.
The biggest gig of Stand Alone’s career so far was playing at Leeds O2 Academy to an audience of over a thousand people in January 2017. This marked a milestone and an ambition of each member playing in such a prestigious venue where their heroes have also graced. Their late 2017 single Save You achieved significant radio play around the country, something that was built upon by their mid 2018 single Never Stand Alone. Never Stand Alone’s positive message was met with the best reaction of the band’s career so far – with the radio airplay to match.
In recent months, Stand Alone have shared stages with the likes of Chantel McGregor and The Kut as well as lending their talents to a special live session for BBC Introducing West Yorkshire, and plan to hit the stage as many times as they can before the year is out.
