    Default New exciting rock band - Idols are Higher

    I would just like to introduce you to a new exciting rock band called 'Idols Are Higher' from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK.

    I think their music is a breath of fresh air. I’d recommend you give them a listen at
    You can listen to a few tracks off their album ‘Saturnalia’ and I’d like to get your feedback on what you think.

    As to why I’m plugging them, take a look at Mowbray Publishing - Helping Unsigned Independent Artists Publish Their Music Online . I’ve had it with the rat race and am trying to follow my dream of being in the music industry. My wife say’s it’s a mid life crisis - I look at it as a career change. If you know of any bands that would like some help in getting published then please feel free to pass on my details.

    For reference I have included the full press release below for the Saturnalia Album.

    Many Thanks


    Idols Are Higher, a group of 5 talented musicians from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England have re-released their album ‘Saturnalia’.

    The album will be available exclusively on-line, which will hopefully re-acquaint old fans and build upon their fan base and get their music heard by more people than ever.

    The album, ‘Saturnalia’, consists of eight original songs from the band, each providing a combination of their melody driven rock with sleaze soaked guitar riffs, strong rhythms and distinctive vocals.

    Their grounding came in playing traditional Rock music – which began to get them known whilst playing in venues throughout the North East and across the UK. They were always keen to bring something unique to the traditional guitar sound. ‘Saturnalia’ was born, bringing hard rock back to the forefront.

    The album was recorded at The Cluny Studios in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England and was produced by Tony Davies who has worked with Maximo Park.

    The band have been influenced by numerous artists and genres of music from across the globe, including, Biffy Clyro, The Black Crowes, Whitesnake, Bad Company, Free, The Jesus Lizard, Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi and Red Hot Chilli Peppers amongst many others.

    ‘Saturnalia’ has a raw lyrical quality and uniquely melodic edge, which is hard to find in today’s manufactured rock music scene. Fans of Rock music, old and new, are encouraged to visit: or idolsarehigher.comIdols Are Higher .

    The album is now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3 for download on a worldwide basis.

    Idols Are Higher are: Shaun Dillon (Vocals), Martin Williamson (Guitar), Peter Casey (Guitar), Mark Osborne (Bass) and Phil Bell (Drums)

    Canada - England's Queen, to us, is just some fugly chick on our money :)


    No MS links please.....

    I hope you're not here just to flog this band.

    Drummer seems to have some issues to me....seems like he rushes through a fill, and has to compensate after which creates a hiccup in the seems a bit over-indulgent...that kinda killed it for me overall.

    on a side note: i prefer slower punchier more impacting fills

    Thanks for the feedback guys - it is much appreciated. I'll pass the feedback on to Phil. Didn't realise the rule on MS links - apologies. It won't happen again.
