02/08/19 - The Rock Riot!
The Rattlebacks are a 5 piece new generation hard rock outfit based in Surrey. In November 2017 the barebones of musical arrangements for over 30 songs had been put together. Following an extended period during which the first lineup was built and 10 songs completed. June 2018 - The Rattlebacks are born. What followed was a warm up gig in Horsham from which several more gig offers poured in, including a festival. Following on from the success of the warm up gig, more were planned in Guildford, Brighton and Horsham; all of which sold out, and two of which were over capacity on the night. The Rattlebacks headed into the studio in December 2018 with a view to record their debut EP. March 2019 saw the release of the EP ‘Five Lines To Start’ and the single ‘Backdrop’ – which in total have achieved over 12,000 streams on Spotify alone in only two months. The goal of The Rattlebacks is to bring rock music into a new generation.
