It’s Call Of The Wild time and this summer’s first big rock festival is just days away. This week we’re featuring even more of the must-see bands heading to Lincoln.
Friday May 20
Born To Be Wild
Staples of the burgeoning NWOCR scene and familiar faces on the UK’s club circuit, North East noiseniks Twister are ready to take their game to the next level.
Formed by charismatic frontman Stevie Stoker, the band dropped bristling debut Cursed And Corrected via Off Yer Rocka in November 2020.
But Twister’s new material, new branding and new video screams of an ambitious outfit targeting the rock and roll big leagues.
Former fanboy turned lead guitarist Jake Grimes has developed into one of the most exciting six string talents in the country seven years after joining Stoker.
And the band’s dynamic rhythm section — drummer Jack Corbett and bass player Ryan Lee — drives a foursome as tight as they’re tenacious.
What We Said
Produced by Grammy nominated Romesh Dodangoda, Don’t Play Nice is the no holds barred sound of a band on a mission.
Twister have always screamed potential but this powerful statement of intent puts their entire back catalogue in the shade.
It’s sharp, shiny, shockingly catchy hard rock.
And if you don’t play Don’t Play Nice right now then you don’t know what you’re missing.
