Artist Of The Month: March 2023
For Fans Of: Royal Blood, Muse, Fangclub
March has arrived and we are back with another cutting edge band that we just know you are all going to love. This month we are showing some love for UK alt-rockers Honeycub, whose distinctive blend of grunge and alternative rock has earned them rave reviews in the unsigned scene. With over 127k streams on Spotify and a string of anthemic singles under their belt, the future looks very bright indeed.
About The Band
Emerging from the northern powerhouse of Leeds, Honeycub consist of Ollie Wilson (vocals/ guitars), Eddie Dawson (bass) and Charlie Lord (drums). Having formed the band in 2018, they set about crafting an intricate fusion of 90s inspired guitar rock, taking influence from legendary touchstones such as Radiohead and Muse, whilst also championing modern rock greats such as Royal Blood.
The band have since gone from strength to strength on the back support slots with fellow scene heroes Fangclub, Big Spring, Black Foxxes and Sick Joy. Following the release of the veritably anthemic single ‘Waking Up’ - which racked up an impressive 70,000 streams on Spotify alone - the band's latest release 'Imitation Heart' was also played on BBC Radio 1 by Nels Hylton on his ‘Future Alternative’ show.
Having already received airplay on the coveted BBC Introducing platform (the springboard for bands such as Blossoms and Catfish & The Bottlemen), the band come armed with an arsenal of compelling anthems ready to invade your collective consciousness.
What’s Next For Honeycub?
The band are currently in the process of recording their next release and will soon be setting up camp in rural Wales to work with producer Alex Loring (Big Spring, Fangclub). They also look set to continue to gig up and down the UK, supported ably by their ever-growing fanbase.
Where Can I Check Them Out?
You can also catch them right here on altrockradio.ca at 9AM and 5PM EST. Every day in March 2023 you will hear a track from Honeycub.
Honeycub pair hard hitting riffs with stadium-sized choruses to produce a fresh and compelling take on alternative rock. Wearing their grunge influences firmly on their sleeve, this Leeds three-piece have already established themselves as a force to be reckoned with on the underground scene, and 2023 looks set to be the year that they break out to an even bigger audience.
