Four Kent lads playing catchy, ballsy punk rock anthems! Taking influences from artists such as Biffy Clyro, Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins, whilst being likened to Jimmy Eat World and Lower Than Atlantis to name but a few, IRIS are the fresh sound of British rock in 2014.
Since forming in 2010 the band have shared the stage with many up and coming acts, toured the UK many times and won ‘The Road Redfest’ nationwide competition which saw them open the main stage at the festival last Summer.
Releases include two EP’s, ‘In Retrospect I see’ and 2012’s ‘Out Of Fiction’ (Engineer Records) both receiving rave reviews in Rock Sound and Big Cheese magazines. 2012 saw three music videos…’Long Walk To Sleep’, ‘Lights At Ten’ and a live montage for ‘Second Best’. IRIS are the latest addition to The Knee Deep booking agency and will be touring the country throughout the year and festival season, so get to a show and see what the fuss is all about! The band will be releasing their new album very soon so watch this space!
