HALO BLIND confirmed for CRS stage at Cambridge Rock Festival 2016
Categories: CRS news, News

HALO BLIND are the next band to join us on our stage at the Cambridge Rock Festival.

Drawing on elements of contemporary progressive and alternative-rock HALO BLIND create a hybrid that’s engaging, dynamic and immersive.

Inspired by the likes of Sigur Ros, Pink Floyd, Boxer Rebellion and Radiohead, HALO BLIND recently released their second album Occupying Forces which is lauded for its direct, fearless songwriting, and nuanced, inventive musicianship.

Their debut album The Fabric and its subsequent tour cemented a reputation as a high energy, must-see live unit, won them the award for Best New Band from the Classic Rock Society, and secured them a place on the Garden Stage at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Individually known for their work with Fish, The Seahorses, Mostly Autumn, Mantra Vega and St Etienne, Halo Blind are Chris Johnson, Stuart Fletcher, Alex Cromarty, Chris Farrell and Andy Knights. Such a collection of musicians in one band has seen them dubbed a ‘UK Prog supergroup’ and a ‘megagroup’ by Prog Magazine.

2016 will see HALO BLIND writing their third album and taking to the road, including a full tour with the Heather Findlay band and selected festival appearances.

Powerful and complex, yet completely accessible, HALO BLIND make cerebral music that rocks.
