A Tower Of Crows are a Coventry based band that started in 2013, with just three members, Jay Hughes, Wayne Turner and Lea Cross. Then in November and December 2013 Sam Clay and Steve Hands joined the club and then everything for us just took off.
After our first gig at the Dog in Coventry we got invited to play the Gods of Rock competition and after winning our heat and then winning the final on our third gig in front of a packed crowd, wowing the judges from TBFM & Kerrang we arrive where we are today.
Just three month since our first gig we signed to TBFM Records and supporting some fantastic bands plus supported Balls Deep during their recent tour.
We as a band are still unsure of what we sound like though we have been likened to Sabbath, Kyus, Queens of the Stone Age, Clutch etc so it looks like we have a stoner feel with maybe a hint of doom.
As for our influences,well there are just far too many to mention but here are just a few that at least one of us at some point has been influenced by: Black Sabbath, Pantera, Gunsíní Roses, Tool, Faith No More, Down, Led Zeppelin, Black Label Society, Deftones and Pearl Jam,the list goes on.
But with so many different tastes itís amazing that we manage to agree on anything we do in the rehearsal room and yet somehow it works and we really do enjoy our music,we hope you will too.
Played our first festival 'Out Of The Ashes' in Ellesmereport in July 2014.
Our first single 'Livewire' is due for digital release on 1st August 2014 as a free download.
