Formed in 2001, the band rocketed to stardom when iconic British music magazine the NME hailed them as “Britain’s best new band”, igniting mass media frenzy. Along with this came huge interest from the music industry itself, with nearly all the major record labels flocking to sign this new and exciting act from Birmingham.
The Twangs’ first single release was Wide Awake in March 2007, shortly followed by second single Either Way in May which reached #8 in the UK charts. In June of the same year the five friends from Birmingham realised their dream by releasing debut album Love it when I feel like this, which reached #3 in the UK charts.
They’ve been busy working on some new material, and they’re ready to show it off at Hard Rock Calling. Don’t miss them!
