Hailing from the heart of England’s ale brewing capital, on the edge of the National Forest, Burton-on-Trent three-piece, THEIA, bring the world their blend of hard rock n roll. It’s a classic rock feel for the modern era, played with a smile on its face.
“…it is hard rock with a recognisable smile and mischief but lit by a freshness which just hits the spot…. it is muscular rock ‘n’ roll, a flavour to feed most appetites”
“Full of crashing guitars and those soaring vocals, the band manage to sound far more immense than just a trio. With a sublime guitar solo and a delicious heavy rhythm throughout”
Raised on his father’s record collection of Marc Bolan, Alice Cooper and AC/DC, mainman, Kyle Lamley (guitar/lead vocals) teamed up with lifelong friend, Paul Edwards (bass/vocals) to form the spine of the band, with drummer Jake Dalton recruited in 2016 to complete the current line-up; and after two early well received EPs, THEIAreleased their debut album in September 2015. They continued to lay the groundwork for a bright future, heading out on the road for a mixture of headline, support and festival shows across the UK including Hard Rock Hell X.
A second album Back In Line was released in Spring 2017 receiving highly favourable reviews, accompanied by a short headline tour and prestigious support slots. Back up-to-date and Planet Rock Winters End was a storming success for the band in February 2018 accompanied by a Planet Rock “one’s to watch” feature. Album no. 3 is being released on 13th July via a fully-funded Pledge Campaign and a round of summer festival slots beckons.
