TWISTED ILLUSION hail from Manchester and were founded by front man Matt Jones in 2014. Serving up a hugely enthralling sound built around intriguing guitar parts, dynamic drums, thoughtful structures, and powerful vocals, TWISTED ILLUSION’s output and standard of musicianship are of the highest order. To date, the band have managed to independently cultivate a diehard fan base within the UK and into Europe and the USA. They have sold thousands of albums directly to fans, across five continents and to over twenty countries—all without a label.
During the next eighteen months, TWISTED ILLUSION will release four studio albums. This is the culmination of three years of intense work. First up, they are set to release, Temple of Artifice, to mark the album’s anniversary. Matt Jones elaborates: “Despite this album initially being written in 2016, it’s more lyrically relevant than ever to me. Temple of Artifice is very much at the core of TI’s ethos and sensibilities and will continue to be so. It represents integrity, a promotion of good mental health and a joy to be found in the absurdity of it all.” After the release of Temple of Artifice, the band will drop The Excite the Light Trilogy, which are three albums distilling the essence and all aspects of the band’s incredible sound. From huge prog rock epics, to short three-minute radio friendly slices of pop rock, TWISTED ILLUSION are here, and ready for widespread domination.
