Swiss alt rockers Spencer - their new single Hidden From The Sun is here
The band trade in soaring & brooding rock songs that are similar to Editors/Vant/30 Seconds To Mars & the new single is great. Their last album charted in the Swiss Top 40 & they've had video rotation on MTV/Viva in Germany/Switzerland along with great press from Rolling Stone & Rckstr magazines in Europe.
At the heart of Righteous Reprobates are the songwriting talents of Rob White (Guitar, Vocals), brought together with Charlie Kenny (Drums), Jack Griffiths (Guitar, Vocals), and Jack Collier (Bass).
An album looms in the near future with some tracks already mastered at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. The band have already had some impressive reviews and radio play…Pure M stating ‘This is a band with plenty of potential’. The band has been making a buzz on the London live circuit too, with promoters & bookers frequently putting forward dates and offering them the headline slot on their bills. Venues already on the band burgeoning CV include The Forum, Roadtrip & Workshop, Water Rats and the 229 Club.
The bands next two London shows are 29th July @ 93 Feet East, Brick Lane and 3rd Sept @ 229 Club
Citing major influences such as Oasis, Arctic Monkeys, Stone Roses, Nirvana, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. What makes this band stand out from the crowed is that all four of them are impressive musicians armed with great songs that cry out to be sung in stadiums and festival the world over. Rob’s songwriting features meaningful and memorable lyrics, inspired melodies and harmonies. The band delivers a menacing sonic wall of layered guitars, each song infused with effortlessly slick riffs and grooves: a fitting canvas for the relentless surge of hooks and anthemic choruses that define a fresh sound that truly impresses and cries out to be heard.
This indie four piece may just be this generations Stone Roses.
The Reggaskas press release
Long way home
is the best way home...
The Reggaskas are due to release their debut album on the 15th July
2016 the album “Long way home”. It has thirteen original and unique
songs that will have you out of your seat and moving to the funkiest
reggae beats this year.
Who’s the Daddy, which was the first song to be released from the album
on Father’s Day 2014, was used by the charity Balls to Cancer to promote
and help raise awareness on testicular cancer in men. The song also
received air play time by local and hospital radio stations.
Following our performance at the local festival Lemonfest, BBC
Introducing announced The Reggaskas as their undiscovered new band

We were also asked by the charity The Specialized Project, a fantastic
organisation that promotes music to raise funds and awareness of the
teenage cancer trust and national foundation for youth music to join them
in ‘The Big One’ Specialized Concert in 2015 and 2016 and play alongside
artists from around the world. As part of their ‘specialized 4’ album,
we recorded the Bob Marley classic ‘Redemption Song’ and we have
featured on the 2016 ‘One Heart’ album with another Bob Marley classic,

We have also been honoured to have the help of well-known music
producer Mr Richard Digby Smith, who has worked with a range of
artists from Bob Marley to the London Symphony orchestra. He has co-
