Coming to Vault tomorrow (Friday November 22) are Reachback - a young band rapidly gaining momentum after endorsements from both Radio 1 and Kerrang!.
The London-based rock group have journeyed steadily from the humble origins of suburban teen bedroom demos and rehearsals in 2008 into an band that last year played at Download, and while in LA, also played showcases in MTV’s head offices and to Extreme Music (SonyATV).
After recent success of supporting McFly, Reachback earned a place in the Festival Chart along with 15 other bands. Out of the 15 bands, seven of them were chosen by top judges, including Daniel P Carter of BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show, to play some of the UK’s hottest festivals, including Slam Dunk, Download, Hevy and Underage Festival. Reachback were named amongst the seven, and kicked off the summer with a slot on the Red Bull Stage at Slam Dunk.
The current buzz around Reachback resulted in them gaining an invitation to participate in the celebrity charity football tournament Soccer Six where they took part in the Rock, Indie and Metal day, with bands such as You Me At Six, Bring Me The Horizon, Architects and many more.
This year, Reachback started off the festival season with a well received performance at Slam Dunk Festival (south) sharing the stage with the likes of Cartel, Forever The Sickest Kids and Mayday Parade.
In 2011 Reachback released their debut official video for the track No One Else off the Wake Up EP, which was exclusively released through Ourzone Magazine, and resulted in Reachback having a double page spread in Ourzone’s April/May edition.
