FACEMELTER are a high-energy classic rock band captivating the south west. Passionately delivering 70's and 80's classic rock FACEMELTER was never intended to be a play something 'everyone' likes sort of band which ironically has a lot to do with their success. They are comfortable and uncompromising with the songs they play and deliver each one with the unique presence and spirit they deserve.
...In order not to lose the excitement and essence of this explosive genre, FACEMELTER comes complete with it’s own dual lead guitar outfit and versatile high tenor front man. These essential aspects ensure these classics are played in the way they should be heard. There is no trying to pull off twin guitar songs with one guitar or constant down tuning and changing of vital vocal harmonies. The idea is to give each song the depth of sound, variation of styles and energy classic rock fans have come to expect.
Entertaining a crowd is something FACEMELTER love to do so you never get half measures when it comes to performances. The reason they do not do half-hearted gigs is because it is FACEMELTER’S ethos to present a show!
2011 marked their first full year in which the boys have already played alongside rock legends Girlschool! In 2012 highlights include playing the Eden Project in May and headlining the popular Rock n' Blues at The Tavistock Wharf in October. Watch this space for more.
