A GROUP of schoolfriends will be releasing a brand new EP next month.
Queensburys, who recently changed their name from the Bow Street Runners, are releasing the six-track EP Beneath the Tide on Thursday, March 28.
Tom Champion fronts the band, singing and playing rhythm guitar, Dan Lambert is on bass and brothers George and Archie Brown play lead guitar and drums.
The band, which has been together for the last two years and are all aged between 15 and 17, draw their influences from the classic rock Gods of the last four decades.
Tom, who lives in Grays, explained: “We are big fans of the Doors, Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy.
“Me and George have been friends since primary school. “We play Burtons and Chinnerys in Southend, wherever we can play really.
“We found out there was an old psychadelic rock band that had the same name – Bow Street Runners – so we just decided to change our name in case it got complicated.”
The band have been busy recording their EP at the Ursuline Convent School in Brentwood.
Tom added: “It is all original material. We made it over the last few months, we are going to put it on iTunes and sell hard copies at Chinnerys on March 28.”
Copies of the EP will be on sale for £4 when the band play a gig at Chinnerys in Eastern Esplanade, Southend, on Thursday, March 28, with The Print, Emys Parade and The Art of Rebellion.
