ALTERED SKY – WHAT THE ESTABLISHED MUSIC MEDIA OPINION
“They’re Scottish and they’re brilliant!”
– Johnny Doom (Kerrang! Radio)
“…offering a sugary-sweet take on things, with a high quality and class that should see thembreak beyond their Scottish border soon” – RockSound
In the words of lyricist Ana Nowosielska the Glasgow rock band Altered Sky are “painting stories in real life” with their infectious brand of pop-rock. Altered Sky stand out from the crowd with their upbeat, punk-ish sensibility which is their radio-friendly college rock.
Formed in 2010, this hard-working travelled along the traditional route of playing small venues up and down the country. Those efforts look set to bear fruit as the stages, crowds and fanbase all are becoming bigger alongside the bands they are playing with.
Altered Sky’s highlights so far include two supports with We Are The In Crowd at the Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh, one of which was opening Slam Dunk Scotland 2014. The band supported The Wonder Years, Decade, State Champs, A Loss For Words and Neck Deep.
In 2013 following headline shows in the Garage, Glasgow and London’s famous 100 Club in Camden, the band launched their EP ‘Stop And Live’ which was a follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘In This World’. Their self-funded debut album, Without Wonderland, was recorded in December 2014 with Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Funeral For A Friend, Twin Atlantic, Bullet For My Valentine…) at Longwave Studios, Cardiff.
Altered Sky are sponsored by pop-culture retailers Pulp and they have just finished a tour of all their UK stores performing the album in full to large crowds and they plan to continue the album promo with extensive touring in HMV stores across the country.
‘Waves’ the 2nd release from the album is currently playlisted on Kerrang Radio & Scuzz TV and the band’s recent promotional UK tour saw them smash attendance records from their previous outings.
