With an album that has already been described as ‘an early contender for best British record of 2014’, the band are currently taking the UK by storm, having already featured in a number of international music magazines this month. Metal Hammer magazine said they had ‘a devilishly potent record that will reward you’, while Rock Sound magazine described them as ‘the relentless pulse of dark-hearted rock n roll’.
Servers were formed last year by local musician Lee Storrar, and became the first signing in two years for the recently relaunched Undergroove Records.
Lee has been an integral part of Barnsley’s live music scene since the 90s; fronting such popular bands as Sunlounger and most recently, G.U. Medicine. His bands have graced the pages of Kerrang and Metal Hammer, have recorded sessions for Radio One and toured with the likes of The Wildhearts, My Ruin, and Skid Row.
Lee Storrar said ‘I’m not only excited to launch our album but also to play our debut gig in our hometown at The Polish Club. This gig will also act as a tribute to one of my best friends Pete Williams. He drummed with me for many years and next month will be five years since he passed away. This album is definitely dedicated to him.’
Servers will be supported by two brilliant local rock acts; the fantastic singer songwriter Lauren Tate and local favourites Black Vines, who will be launching their new single on the same evening.
ALTERNATIVE BARNSLEY PRESENTS…
SERVERS’ ALBUM LAUNCH @ THE POLISH CLUB
SATURDAY 22nd FEBRUARY
DOORS 8:00pm / £3
with special guests BLACK VINES and LAUREN TATE
“Lee Storrar’s churning guitar lines and towering vocal melodies lead us through 10 tracks that draw influence from the likes of QOTSA and , more indirectly, Sabbath. The cacophonous fist-pump of Universes and Supernovas is neatly served by swooning strings and gives the first indication that this is more than your standard rock album. A charming, devilishly potent record that will reward you.” – Metal Hammer Magazine
“Servers specialise in apocalyptical anthems of the sonorously heavy variety. Leave With us is a white hot slab of incandescent fury. It would appear that today belongs to Servers.” – Rock Sound Magazine.
“Servers are awesome. An early contender for the best British record to land in 2014” – DailyDiscord.com
“Wouldn’t be out of place on a Queens of the Stone Age record” – Cack Blabbath
“Dark and dirty. Infectious, groove-laden, hypnotic vocal hooks and big choruses.” – Force 10 Music.
If you would like to attend the concert, please reply with your name and a guest if you wish and we’d be delighted to add you to the guest list.
