Spreading the disease is a modern metal band, the baby of Steve Saunders, ex bassist of ‘The Self titled’.
“The band is based in KENT. UK. Born in late 2014. having spent five good years with the above mentioned band Steve decided to move on and create a band that allowed for a different approach to both band policy and creativeness. The end goal to produce a sound and music that although draws from many bands and influences throws it all into a melting pot and comes out the other side with something that in this day and age is hard to achieve, a sound of their own, a distinctive style that cannot be pigeon holed to say the least.
The band has gone through a couple of member changes and now consists of Richard Worrell (Drums and percussion), Steve Saunders (Bass and backing vocals).
Adam May (Lead vocals), Martin Osbourne (Guitars and Backing vocals) and Steve King ( Lead guitars).
Writing began in early 2015 which developed into some ver y original tracks with widespread influence ranging from Pantera, Kill or be Killed and Stone sour to Slipknot, Machinehead, Breed 77 and many more. The bands music is contemporary and modern with amazing riffs, hooks and licks multi layered full of groove that hit you like a freight train. Having released the EP Viral to much acclaim and great reviews including a 4-star KKKK in Kerrang! review which is rare for a debut EP, n 8/10 from Powerplay magazine plus many more great online reviews the band then set out throughout 2016 gigging right across the Country pretty much non stop again to much acclaim and great reviews.
The band is extremely energetic and interactive with the crowds impressing everyone at every gig to date including gigs at the 02 Academy, Birmingham/ Rebellion,Manchester/Portland Arms, Cambs with Attica rage and many more.
The band were looking for a singer with presence, aggressiveness and stance who can command a stage and the crowd and they sure found it with Adam May. A voice full of anger and rage that is no nonsense, in your face vocals. The band has a richness of talent between all the band members that shines through both on recordings and specially live with true professionalism and experience.
A full album is also imminent officially supported by a video clip for the Spring of 2017 which promises to be acracking album. The band has also recently filmed a Live video to help promote the band for festivals and bookings .
The bands official website has some very good reviews, music, photos, tour dates and much more and they believe in working closely with all aspects of the industry to help 0ptimise their promotional wagon and at the same time supporting the Industry as a whole wherever possible is also a standard and staple part of the bands ideology that already has provided them with a good reputation for doing so, and do it with good effect and commitment.
With dozens of Radios giving the band airplay all over the globe also with great acceptance things are looking up..
Catch them on the road soon to see their full on metal onslaught live and loud!”
