Axis Of, Rock City Basement (As Part Of Stick Tight)

  • Thursday 16th April 2015

Axis Of formed in 2007, and after various line up changes they released debut single "Brobdingnagian" in late 2009, launching in Belfast in January 2010. Since early 2010 the band have enjoyed a rise in popularity, partly due to the release of their 2nd single "Port Na Spaniagh", which was released along with a music video, available on YouTube. Following one of the band's UK tours in early 2010, Rock Sound magazine dubbed them "the most exciting band to come out of Northern Ireland, possibly ever" and gave them a 9/10 rating for their live performance at a show in Newcastle. As a result of this coverage the band were subsequently asked to take part in a Maida Vale Studios session in January 2011. On 10 October 2012 they announced that they signed with Derry based label Smalltown America Records. Their début album was released in Autumn 2012 and titled Finding St Kilda.
