Better Than Never
Comprised of James Harris (vocals), Will Keating (vocals/guitar), Max Peniket (guitar), Jim Allsop (guitar), Jake Aitman (bass) and Alex Hinton-Smith (drums), Better Than Never is UK Pop Punk with a twist. Catchy hooks and killer riffs are a staple of the UK Pop Punk community, but these lads have a few aces up their sleeves, including a "killer three guitar front" (RockSound), and two vocalists dueling side by side. Late 2015 saw their first studio EP, Homemade Hero, recorded at The Ranch Production House (Trash Boat, WSTR, Boston Manor, Creeper). Since then, the lads have made great progress in the scene, sporting a paid sponsorship from Wychwood Brewery/Hobgoblin Ale, press with Inception and coverage in Alternative Press (US), Kerrang and Rocksound to name a few. They've toured steadily throughout the UK and played some great festivals including Teddy Rocks alongside Don Broco, The Hoosiers and The Gospel Youth. In 2016, Better Than Never recorded their second EP at Emeline Studios (ROAM, Homebound) with Ian Sadler. During this time, the lads perfected their sound, building upon the foundations from their previous release to really work around the three guitars, dual vocals and James' ability to drop a few screams here and there, bringing a new, more diverse and maturer front compared to their previous release. Things are remaining strong in the Better Than Never camp, with plans for UK and EU tours in 2017, they are only just beginning.
