Birmingham rock band The Crimson Star are continuing to stream their full EP online following its official launch at the O2 Academy 3 earlier this month.
The group, enjoying what was their first ever headline slot, were supported by Our World Below?, Piston, Black Star Bullet and Opheon to launch ‘New Road’.
Despite having broken his elbow in a biking accident, drummer Ross Edgington managed to play the gig with one arm, and the band commented on their Facebook page that the night was “totally amazing.”
Ross, together with singer/guitarist James Shaw, formed the band in October 2012, and after a frustrating early search for the final two members, were joined in early 2013 by Chris Rowley on bass and guitarist Dave Musson.
Dave, from Acocks Green, who by day is a press officer, said the band was really excited about its material.
New Road has received positive reviews from various sources including Powerplay and The Midlands Rocks, and has been praised for its “bristling guitar solos” and “crushing riffs”.
The Crimson Star will be playing at The Marrs Bar in Worcester and Digbeth’s The Rainbow on September 20 and 27 respectively.
