“There’s something a bit special about Accidents. Combing through worlds of post-rock, progressive rock and more that really doesn’t sound like any one specific thing. That alone makes it worth checking out. 8/10.” - Carl Fisher
WE ARE ACCIDENTS
Lying somewhere between post-rock and prog-metal, we fuse atmospheric soundscapes, jagged rhythms and beautifully crafted melodies to create something truly unique.
We formed in Manchester during 2018, after a long hiatus from former projects, with a singular vision to make music we all loved. Our first EP, Vemödalen, developed quickly and solidified our aspirations to create heavy, beautiful, progressive music without any unnecessary indulgence - ultimately, we still wanted to write songs, with great melodies and memorable hooks.
By late 2019, and a small lineup change, we had completed recording War Games and looking forward to booking gigs in 2020. Sadly, the world had different plans… Roll on a post-lockdown and the release of Dying Lights. These two singles combined our love of modern, genre-defying bands like TesseracT, The Contortionist, Palm Reader, Sleep Token and Arcane Roots.
In September, 2021, Dan Tompkins (TesseracT, White Moth Black Butterfly, ZETA) featured War Games on his Twitch channel and Underground Rock and Metal Spotify Playlist.
“I like this a lot! That intro is amazing, wow! This sounds awesome.”
Following our debut performance at The Castle, Manchester, supporting Kill the Silence, we’re now looking to book gigs and festival slots for 2023 and recording our next release.
