Cheshire-based riff monsters 1968 have been smashing riffs together since 2013, as the name suggests, they pull influences from the death of the summer of love and the realisation that everything wasn’t quite as “peaceful” as it could have been.

Drawing influences from Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer and riff makers such as Mountain, 1968 are pushing the older sound into modern ears and using volume to ensure that listeners or spectators are left with the feedback, for days.

Having completed their self-titled EP in 2015, the release was added to the Black Bow Records digital label for release on January 15th 2016 and is available on Spotify and iTunes.

Following the success of the first EP and critically acclaimed reviews from the likes of Kerrang!, 1968 unleashed their second EP »Fortuna Havana« in 2017.

Jimi Ray – Vocals
Sam Orr – Guitar
