WIGAN alternative rockers Deepshade hope to ink their names at the heart of the local music scene with the release of their debut single Tattoo.
The psychedelic-fused three-piece, made up of David Rybka on vocals and guitar, Tom Doherty on bass and Paul Barlow on drums, will give fans the first sample of their debut album Everything Popular Is Wrong when the single comes out on May 18.
The group will take audiences on a journey into the heart of some of the most successful sounds in rock history, drawing influence from the likes of Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Alice In Chains, The Doors and Queens of the Stone Age.
The band will also show off Tattoo and some of their other tracks in Wigan over the Bank Holiday weekend when they appear as part of a packed bill raising money for victims of the earthquake in Nepal at The Old Courts.
Deepshade has chosen to release Tattoo as a free single for fans to download.
Since being founded the band has developed a loyal following across the North of England following a series of successful performances on the local circuit.
The group has also had its music played on radio stations dedicated to discovering new talent as well as being heard on the airwaves across Europe and the USA.
As well as regular appearances on the Wigan scene Deepshade has also secured high-profile support slots for groups including punk-influenced Glasgow rockers The Amazing Snakeheads.
Tattoo, by Deepshade, will be released on May 18, available from www.soundcloud.com/deepshademusic
The group will play The Old Courts on Sunday May 24.
