In early 2018, Natt and Alex from local punk heroes Atombuzz decided that they wanted to break away and do something a bit different. Atombuzz had reached the end of its long life and the boys were hungry for change. Armed with a few songs they got back into rehearsals but needed a bassist and a singer to complete the lineup. By chance Alex had been in contact with an old friend and former work colleague Jim who offered to come down to a rehearsal and give it a go. Jim had been the former bass player in the hardcore band Wall Of Denial as well as the guitarist in SoulsScream. Right from the start the band just gelled together and Jim was offered the position after the first practice. From there on the new songs started to flow with all three contributing with varied styles. The hunt was then on for a vocalist. The band put out several ads and spoke to contacts but had no luck (apart from a couple of James Hetfield wannabies). The band were looking for a male or Female vocalist. At the end of 2018 they had some interest in the position from a Facebook ad they posted, Shona came down for an audition and the sound just came together beautifully. The lineup was complete and the band had well over 10 songs ready to rock. Two-Tonne Vice are a band you can’t really pigeon hole into one genre. Due to the mix of influences each song has a very unique sound – from pop punk all the way to metal, the band love to mix it up so that every song is interesting and different from the last. After a couple of line-up changes in 2020, the band have now rebranded as Mirrors of Madness.
