Hailing from Chippenham, Melksham, Badminton and Box and formed in late 2010 by Jake Reid, Lee Butler and James Spiller, Roads to Nowhere are completed by vocalist Lauren Todd and guitarist Joe Grimes.
Roads to Nowhere in the past year have gigged extensively in North Wiltshire, Swindon and Bristol. They have begun to spread their wings getting gigs in Northampton, Kettering and Gloucester recently and have quickly developed an impressive local following after releasing their first EP in March 2011.
Roads combine a unique blend of melodic riffs with truly brutal breakdowns and the vocals of Lauren Todd punch well above their weight.
The band reached the local final of Bloodstock- Metal 2 The Masses at Riffs Bar in June 2011 and have during their time taking part in Live And Unsigned have bagged two days of recording studio time at Anton Rd Studios in Andover, a brand new TC Electronics BG250 watt bass amp, a Blackstar HT-1 practice amp and a Gold Disc from Future Copyright for best Original Song in area final for ‘Jakiller’.
On top of this the band say the whole Live and Unsigned experience has made a huge difference to the bands expectations of themselves and that they are a much tighter, and more professional outfit for this experience, which they believe was very tough, but very rewarding.
“Roads to Nowhere were the best metal act of this year’s Live and Unsigned. Musically brilliant and with an engaging lead, they have something special, which will open doors for them.”
