25 year old Matt Long has carved himself a reputation as a stellar front man of multi award-winning British Blues band Catfish. Alongside playing with Catfish, Matt is now also on the road with his own band, Matt Long and the Revenant Ones, with powerful new riff-influenced original rock material.
Their phenomenal energy on stage, Matt's powerful songwriting, Adam's dark underbelly basslines and Kev's outrageously hypnotic drum skills make this a band which stands out from the crowd in a genre full of talent.
With a European tour in the pipeline for 2020 and festival bookings coming in, this band is already causing a buzz both in the UK and abroad.
This new band allows Matt flex his songwriting muscles with a new project focused on rockier riffs and showcasing his impeccable guitar wizardry.
The band consists of talented and inventive Catfish band-mate Adam Pyke on bass and critically acclaimed ex-RavenEye drummer Kev Hickman on drums who is no stranger to the world stage. Kev has performed regularly across three continents and supported acts such as Slash, Deep Purple, Joe Satriani and The Darkness.
DEBUT ALBUM ALMOST READY...
The new album is almost complete - mixing and mastering going on over the early part of November so hope to have it to you early next year. Thanks to the incredible Dan Lucas of Anchor Baby Studios in Kent who has made it sound epic.
