Piston are a British five-piece rock ‘n’ roll engine made up of four members from the Midlands greased with a vocal roar from the south; which, when put together and fired up produce a no-nonsense sound not to be reckoned with!
The band release the second single ‘Rainmaker’ from the upcoming album on Friday 31st May. The single was produced by Dan Swift and remixed by Romesh Dodangoda. Their first single ‘One More Day’ received airplay on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show with Johnnie Walker, Planet Rock and many more.
Piston will release their long awaited self-titled debut album on Friday 13th September 2019. The album was recorded at Silk Mill Studios in Newcastle Under Lyme and produced byDan Swift (Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode). They will take the album on tour in the UK – the Stand Up, Shout It Out! Tour – with co-headliner Collateral in September and October. Tickets via www.pistonuk.com.
‘Rainmaker’ is a thunderstorm of slow dirty riffs, kept up to pace with the constant thumping from the rhythm section and preacher style vocals, it is the very essence of rolling thunder forced down the ear drums. This track never strays too far from its path and just when you think it’s going to give you a break in the pre-chorus, it drags you back by the scruff of the neck into the heavy ostinato!
Guitarist Jack Edwards has described the recording process of the track: “Rainmaker was the very first track we recorded for the album. You can hear all of our excitement in the track — we were all back together in one room and we tracked it right then and there! We love it and its not perfect, and we don’t want it to be — rock n’ roll has never been perfect. It’s a huge step in the new sound of Piston, it will easily stand there with some of the modern greats, but it most certainly pays homage to some of our idols.”
“A band whom has been getting airplay on radio. Their single ‘Leave If You Dare’ pummels and it thrusts, much like an actual piston.” – Classic Rock Magazine
“Every single day I get tweets and emails about this group from people asking for more, back by popular demand, Piston!” – Wyatt, Planet Rock
“This rocks hard! I LOVE IT. PISTON!!” – Paul Anthony, Planet Rock
“The guitarists slay! The sort of riffs that would go down in rock history! I love it.” – Alex Baker, Kerrang!
