Scrolling through my Twitter followers, I came across these guys. They were nice enough to reply to my “thanks for following” tweet, so I did as they asked and checked them out!

SkyBurnsRed are a Swindon-based alternative band with a unique classical twist. Rarely does a band come along, who combine violins with guitars and drums but it appears that that’s exactly what this band are doing. Formed in 2010, they have since kicked up a storm in their hometown, regularly featuring on BBC Wiltshire Introducing and playing a number of sell-out shows, including a gig at IndigO2 in London.

Influenced by Biffy Clyro and Foo Fighters, they released their first EP Madness and Reason last summer and are currently at work on their second. They have two shows booked at The Victoria Inn in Swindon on May 17th and June 1st, as well as a show in Farringdon, Exeter on July 7th. They’ll also be appearing at The Fleece in Bristol for its 12 Band Indie/Alternative all-day gig on May 20th.

By just visiting their MySpace and listening to their tunes at or for live recordings at , you’ll agree that these guys are bringing something brand new and refreshing to the industry. For more information, go to or of course, tweet them like I did at
