Born of a collective love of all things deep down, dirty and driving, Ten Ton Friday is a thundering four headed behemoth that has powered relentless across the North East of England since 2004. Describing themselves as “a collaboration of brothers in arms, seeking to write songs that invoke head banging and fist pumping mayhem”, they have an attitude which unapologetically beams from both their no bullshit live perfomances and carefully constructed recorded work.
Ten Ton Friday return with new EP ‘In Pursuit of Cyborgs’ released in October ’13 which looks set to ride the wave of buzz and anticipation harnessed by 2012’s impressive full length release ‘Crunkshaft’.
With inspiration from the likes of Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, Zakk Wylde, Soundgarden and Metallica, Ten Ton Friday walk the heavy path in a classic fashion and with a solid tread but are equally as likely to throw you a musical curve ball and flex their versatility with country fried, Skynyrdesque grooves or epic melodic powerhouse showpieces that Stone Temple Pilots would be proud of.
Having gigged with Hayseed Dixie and Wishbone Ash amongst others, Ten Ton Friday have become renowned for their live shows that seamlessly shift and surge in both musicality and stage presence.
Ten Ton Friday create music laden with earth crushing riffs, intricate harmonies and hooks that barb their way deep into your musical consciousness. Self assured and uninterested in pandering to fashionistas and scenesters, their sounds are rooted deep in their own influences, influences they wear proudly on their sleeves.
So raise a glass of whiskey, get ready for an audible beating that you’ll enjoy and join the brotherhood for an experience you’ll not soon forget.
