A Guitar/Bass & Drum two piece band from the North West of England with songs & a sound that not only separates them from other two piece's but other bands. Their sound has been described as Alt Rock/Indie/Dance/Funk (all styles they happily take influence from) but they simply see theirselves as a two piece Rock band.


Originally an experimental duo created by Phil Ireland & featured Adam Darwen on drums, the sound has evolved into the range of a full 4 piece band.


In this period of the band evolving, Peat Hicks took over as the bands full time drummer.

Peat & Phil played together for 5 years with their previous band (Exit State) as Bassist & Drummer, which has created a rhythm section connection like no other & have gone on to write the self titled 'Breaking Waves' album together.  


Together they have impressive musical accolades under thier belts, playing along side Mallory Knox/Michael Schenker/Gun/Reckless Love/Marseille & touring all over the UK & Europe in venues such as The Ritz Manchester/02 Arena Glasgow/Shepard’s Bush Empire!


Explosive & High Energy performers live, with a sound that matches thier recorded material & a great imagination for music videos.
