Enjoy Life. Love. Don't Be Late". Not indicative of what the 2nd Ferocity Lights album will sound like! March 2013 will see the release of the "Transmissions" EP - a self recorded and produced slab of punk rock joy. 2013 will also see the release of a brand new album.
This will be 110% awesome.

With increasingly regularity, I’ve been waking up with their demos in my pocket. And now, they’ve sent us this rather fine little album. Compromising of all those demos properly recorded with Pat Collier (Hundred Reasons, Jesus and Mary Chain, Maximo Park), this is a remarkably sweet 10 tracks of punky rock n roll mayhem. Rolling effortlessly from tender choruses to Green Day-esque blasts, and bouncing along at an often breakneck beat, this is punk rock, but made by people who have actually thought about what they’re doing first. There is also something quite indefinable going on here, it’s a very intelligent and different record, in an area where you’d think things would be very simple and easily pinned down.
Singer Charlie Gray, with backing vocals at times by guitarist Marilyn Ford, isn’t necessarily the voice you’d expect for this record, but somehow pulls it off marvellously, handling sweet powerpop melody as adeptly as the shouty bits. Occasionally it reminds me a bit of Cay, if anyone remembers them, but that’s by no means a comprehensive comparison. This record bodes well for Ferocity Lights, and I for one am certainly interested in where this could go next." Reviewed by Sexy Dave for Pure Rawk - September 2010 "...lead support Ferocity Lights went straight for the jugular with a raw & dirty approach. Bashing out dense, skull-shaking basslines & fragile, trebly guitar stabs over a relentless, pounding punk-flavoured beat, they were less out to charm the audience & more clobber them into submission". Reviewed by James Burton for the Herts & Essex Observer, February 2009 "Falling somewhere between Green Day and Orange Goblin the bands title track from the EP 'Your Hair' ramps up with a demonic guitar sequence from Ford that oozes 90's punk rock and duelling, cockney vocal harmonies from Gray and Ford complete an infectious chorus that draws to many the memories of many a beery knees up. 'Long Lost Smiles' brings the bands American punk-rock influences in to line with it's more rapid fire rhythm and care free lyrics..." Reviewed by Matt Clutton for Music-Zine, June 2008 "After a long day, what do you need? A takeaway and a veg-out in front of the telly? No.
What you need is a few beers and some cheery punk rock down the pub. Ferocity Lights at The Gaff on a Tuesday delivers all this with great aplomb. First on and in front of a small crowd of early bird gig-goers, they approach the whole thing with a cheeky grin and an all-out positive attitude. Sulky egocentrics who spend the whole gig moping on stage because their girlfriends only brought 20 people should take note. ...Playing pretty much all the songs from their recent album (it’s free if you want a copy by the way – go ask ‘em), Ferocity Lights pack a tight and well-directed punch. Happy hooks and rockin’ guitars sit happily with original melodies, all combining into a great bouncy sound to drink beer and forget the pains of the day to. No dramas, no crap, just some good tunes for some good times.
If only everything was this simple!" Reviewed by Sexy Dave for Pure Rawk - September 2010 Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
