Colt 45 formed in 2009, Workington, Cumbria from the ashes of various other local bands that both Neil and Gareth had previously played in. Plenty of early shows around Cumbria's modest, but dedicated live music scene helped develop a passionate local following, attracting Carlisle-based drummer Adam to join guitarist Neil and bassist Gareth. Upon joining in November 2010, the three-piece have gone from strength to strength with a pretty relentless touring schedule around the UK and the production of two self-released EP's, both attracting critical acclaim from the mainstream rock press. Here you have three very down to earth Northern lads with a bunch of catchy tunes and a burning desire to succeed the old fashioned way - substance over style. Source: Band's biography on Last.fm.
