Following two strong studio releases, tours with King King and Gun and a main stage appearance at Ramblin' Man Festival, AUSTIN GOLD are causing a stir.

Classic Rock magazine have given glowing reviews of ‘Before Dark Clouds‘ and their self-titled vinyl-only mini-album. These coupled with regular plays on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show and Planet Rock Radio, have catapulted the English quartet firmly into the limelight. Now fans eagerly anticipate their next release, which, on the strength of the first two albums, promises to be an epic.

The band of David James Smith (vocals & guitar), Lee Churchill (bass), Russell Hill (keyboards) and Chris Ogden (drums), have been building a reputation as one of the best live acts around. Their melting pot of influences come together to create something that is really very special. From heavy guitar riffs, to the most delicate heart-felt ballads; from atmospheric sonic landscapes, to hook-driven melodies; this is a band that deserves to be heard.

Armed with their scintillating live show, Austin Gold are selling out venues and in huge demand for festivals all over the world.
