Reviving the Spirit of Original Rock 'n' Roll: SuperZero's dream to Conquer UK Festivals

In a world still dominated by shoegazing, catchy pop tunes and electronic beats, there's a growing longing among music enthusiasts for the raw power and authenticity of original rock and roll. Enter SuperZero, a formidable four-piece band hailing from Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells in the UK, determined to breathe new life into the festival circuit and reignite the golden era of rock. With their electrifying sound and unwavering passion, SuperZero aims to captivate audiences and leave them craving more of that pure rock 'n' roll experience.

Formed in 2019, SuperZero has been making waves with their hard-hitting blend of hard rock and roll. The band is composed of vocalist Brandon Keenen, lead guitarist Neil Abnett, drummer Martyn Cheesman, and bass guitarist Rich Bex. Together, they channel the essence of rock's glory days, drawing inspiration from legendary acts like AC/DC and ZZ Top. Their music is a nostalgic yet refreshing journey, filled with infectious melodies, thunderous riffs, and anthemic choruses that awaken the soul.

One of SuperZero's primary objectives is to join the festival stages across the UK. They firmly believe that festivals, with their diverse audiences and celebratory atmosphere, provide the ideal platform to reignite the flame of original rock and roll. By infusing their performances with relentless energy and an unwavering dedication to their craft, SuperZero aims to transport festival-goers back to the days when rock music pulsated through their veins and ignited their spirits.

But SuperZero is not embarking on this mission alone. They have formed alliances with like-minded bands who share their vision and passion for original rock and roll. Collaborating with progressive rockers Gramma Veddetta, renowned for their captivating compositions, live performance and mind-bending musicality, SuperZero has found kindred spirits in their quest to revive the essence of true rock at festivals. Together, they are an unstoppable force, poised to deliver electrifying performances that will leave audiences awestruck.

Another band that SuperZero deeply admires is Thorn, known for their gritty sound and rebellious attitude. The fusion of Thorn's alternative edge with SuperZero's unyielding energy promises an unforgettable experience for festival-goers, with a blend of raw power and authentic passion that is sure to ignite the stage. And of course, one cannot overlook Clutch, the legendary rock band celebrated for their blues-infused hard rock sound. SuperZero draws inspiration from Clutch's timeless music, incorporating elements of their influence into their own unique style. The prospect of a collaboration between SuperZero and Clutch is a dream that would undoubtedly send shockwaves through the boys in SuperZero.

To accomplish their goal of gracing festival stages and bringing back original rock and roll, SuperZero relies on the unwavering support of their dedicated fan base and the wider rock community.
