From frenetic, screeching guitars, pulsating drums and bass and brash choruses, to stripped bare, lo-fi introspectives (galvanised with socio-political lyrics).

UK rock act LiVES delivers a raw, unapologetic, guitar driven sound that makes them one hell of a tasty racket!

LiVES was formed by Peter Chisholm formerly of cult UK rock duo (along with his brother Alex) THE SEA.

The Sea released 3 studio albums and played over 1000 concerts and festivals (Glastonbury, SXSW, Eurosonic, CMJ and supported Muse and The Kills on UK and European tours)

As well as having 3 songs in Kerrang Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Songs of the Week’ and ‘Record Of The Week/Month’ in various other music publications, i.e. – The Guardian, Rocksound, Classic Rock, The Fly and CMJ Magazine. They had radio hits with songs; ‘New York’, ‘Love Love Love’ and ‘Get Up, Stand Up, Die’.

After early the independent solo LiVES releases of ‘The Naked EP’ and ‘Bayonne 21’ Peter REUNITED with Alex and, along with bassist Dan Billing, the brothers returned to what they do best – hard hitting guitar led rock! Firmly sitting in the rock and post punk sphere.

Coupling their aggressive soundscape with explicit socio-political lyrics LiVES make music for the disenfranchised, for the people that don’t belong, it’s melodic, angry, visceral and LOUD!
