With an ample appetite for riffs, groove and melody, South Coast Alternative Rock crew Hercules Morse are primed to be one of the bands to emerge from the underground in 2016. Already armed with vast critical praise and favourable descriptors from Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Team Rock and Kerrang! Radio, the riff-smiths now press on with the release of their captivating new video single Do It Right. The single is taken from the band’s explosive new EP Equine Size Comparison, out in stores now.
Born at the end of 2014, Hercules Morse unleashed their debut EP Edge Of Life in December 2015 and soon racked up a collection of exceptional reviews; most notably KKKK (4 out of 5) in Kerrang Magazine and 8/10 in Rock Sound Magazine. Their consistently impressive level of song-writing was well demonstrated by the fact that five of the six tracks from the EP received airplay from Kerrang Radio and the BBC (6 music and BBC Introducing). As well as receiving much praise for their recorded work, Hercules Morse have also performed countless blistering live shows and have shared stages with Turbowolf, Band of Skulls, Brant Bjork (former Kyuss drummer), Tiger Cub, Orange Goblin and Dinosaur Pile Up, as well as appearing on an array of bills with everyone from Calvin Harris and The Go Team, through to Tynchy Stryder and The Streets.
So far in 2016, the band have consistently hit stages across the country and at numerous summer festivals, winning over audiences with their groove-tinted blend of Alternative Rock and wooing new fans at every turn. The release of their current EP Equine Size Comparison, has seen the quartet’s stock increase even further. Recent heavy radio rotation from Kerrang! Radio’s Fresh Blood show and Amazing Radio, as well as a Band Of The Week feature over at Team Rock, only further outlines the band’s growth. Now, Hercules Morse are sure to hit giddy heights with the release of their alluring new video single Do It Right, which is set to propel them into orbit.
LIVE: 30/09 – The Joiners, Southampton.
