BRAND NEW SINGLE & VIDEO UNLEASHED & LIVE SHOWS ON THE WAY!
MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY are a highly accomplished UK South coast rock ‘n’ roll band with prominent influences which shift from Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen to Thin Lizzy and The Gaslight Anthem. MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY dispatch a sound that hurls out engrossing twin-guitar solos, heartfelt emotive hooks, and unstoppable energy. The band have now released their powerful new single and video, Runnin’ – https://youtu.be/PDCHg5rXCnc.
Mikey Ball cut his teeth as a captivating solo performer, and as his songwriting craft evolved, so did his sound. As part of Mikey’s natural progression, he recruited ‘The Company’, aka Chris Collins (Guitar, Backing Vocals), and Dean Hurst (Bass, Backing Vocals), who both joined in 2018. By 2022, MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY had a solidified line-up, which also includes Sam Hurst on drums.
Having amassed a wealth of material during the recent pandemic, MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY dropped their highly absorbing debut album, Through The Night, in the Autumn of 2022. Momentum grew as the band unleashed their single The Morning , which instantly garnered support for its Gaslight Anthem-esque woven guitars and soaring refrain. Soon after, their follow-up single, Burning All Night, captured the imagination of many, recalling Thin Lizzy’s dueling guitars framed by Mikey’s trademark hazy vocal lines that elevate the track to a whole new level.
Due to the success of the album, MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY picked up interest from many UK promoters resulting in the four-piece being invited to support everyone from Wicked Smile, Cassidy Paris, Toploader and Geoff Tate to The LA Maybe. The band more recently wooed audiences at the Call of The Wild Festival where they played alongside Kris Barras Band, Ginger Wildheart and more.
MIKEY BALL & THE COMPANY will kick forward even further with their explosive new single, Runnin’. Mikey comments about the track: “’Runnin’ was one of the most fun songs to record. It’s a song quite literally about escapism, but the inspiration behind it is the romantic, cinematic idea that you find someone, and you just run for the border. Beyond that is the freedom you’ve desired.” With rampant shows and festivals planned for the year, stay tuned to the band’s social sites for updates.
