Marshall Records artists, London/Belfast-based alternative rock-pop duo Rews announce their North American release of their debut album, Pyro, out now under exclusive license to Eleven Seven Label Group, available HERE and on music services Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, YouTube and Deezer.
Rews, featuring Shauna Tohill (vocals/guitar) and Collette Williams (vocals/drums), generated a buzz on the UK and Irish music scene and BBC Radio last year when they opened for Halestorm on a UK tour, and with their own headlining UK tour. The band’s single “Shine” has been a staple on Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and Radio X, and has also been played on BBC Radio 1 and Ireland’s most popular commercial radio stations, Today FM and 2FM.
The album’s sound is raw and burgeoning with infectious choruses and deadly distorted riffs. Lead singer/guitarist Shauna Tohill delivers soaring vocals alongside drummer Collette Williams’ bewitching harmonies and thunderous drums, drawing influences from the likes of Grohl and Bonham with pounding toms and a shit-kicking bass drum.
Inspired by life events from the dramatic to the mundane, Pyro covers topics from heartbreak to shady characters and breakfast cereals. Rews have shown insurmountable talent and commitment to developing their unique and inspiring sound. Pyro promises to deliver a musical punch in the face.
Shauna comments, “I find myself incredibly inspired by experiences whether they are things I’ve been through or observing and listening to what other people go through. I want to use our music as my voice and to speak honestly into the world and people’s situations as I feel music really has the ability to do that (and it has done for me!).”
Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, Pyro courses with dynamic energy from start to end. It’s a testament to the duo’s unstoppable drive, belief and passion as they continue to cement themselves as one of the most relentlessly hardworking and exciting new acts to emerge this year.
