Replica Jesus was established in 2016 by lead guitarist Howard Rigg, bass player Lee Barber and drummer Stu Cheeseman. They quickly realised they needed someone to front the band, with this position eventually falling to Mike Knight who has established himself at the helm as main vocalist and second guitarist.

Based across Derby and Nottingham their sound combines a plethora of influences combining the heavy riffs of 90’s stoner rock, the fuzz and feedback of grunge and the catchiness and groove of 70’s heavy rock. Influences include, Kyuss, Refused, The Bronx and The Jesus Lizard to name a few.

Live, the band delivers their colossal noise laden riffs with an infectious ferociousness that won’t fail to get your head nodding and your eardrums rattling.

The band has played alongside groups such as Evil Blizzard, War Cloud, Chuck Mosley, Kurokuma and has completed a brief UK/European tour with death electronica friends Bone Cult. They have appeared at Hockley Hustle, 2Q and DH Lawrence Festivals and were finalists for Metal 2 the Masses 2021.
