DEBUT ALBUM READY TO GO
The debut album The Other Side is ready to be released just as soon as Covid restrictions are lifted enough for the band to tour again. We have a tour pencilled in for April onwards, but will be back with you just as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience to all those of you who have preordered, some of you a while ago now - if we are able to go ahead with the release in April, we plan to have a pre-release date a month or so before to send out all the preorders.
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 their first European tour completed in early 2020 and festival bookings coming in, this band was already causing a buzz both in the UK and abroad before Covid struck. The debut album 'The Other Side' was due for release this summer but has been put back, Covid permitting, to the new year when they hope to be able to take it out on tour.
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.
New t shirts are now in stock.
You can preorder the album here - we dont yet know when we will be able to release now due to Covid-19, likely to be early 2021, but we hope it wont be too long until the guys are able to get back out again to tour it.
