LIVERPOOL BAND SMASH ITUNES CHART
It has been a busy summer for sixth form pupils Ben, Freddie, Harry and Sam, members of the Liverpool band, The Basement Effect. The band has smashed the Itunes pre-order chart by climbing to position 22 in under 24 hours of their debut EP going on pre-sale. The Basement Effect went head to head with some well-established and household names such as Meatloaf, Metallica and Michael Buble, in some cases going ahead of them in the chart.
The boys have been playing together for two years and have spent the last year writing over 25 songs. They have selected 5 songs for their EP, ‘Young and The Same’ which were recorded by Sugar House records at Catalyst recording studio based in St Helens – the same studio where Warrington Band, Viola Beach, recorded a number of tracks for their final album. Sam Jones, lead singer of The Basement Effect, described their time at the studio as ‘a huge honour to record in the same venue as such talented and much missed musicians as the boys from Viola Beach’.
The Basement Effect have also recently beat hundreds of other musicians and won the opportunity to play on the Academy Stage at the Liverpool International Music Festival in Sefton Park in July. Following the band’s performance the music blogging website GetIntoThis commented ‘these retro rockers have an abundance of promise in their hands, these are a group to keep an eye on.’
They have all just taken their GCSEs and balanced their burgeoning music career with the demands of exams. “We knew that we had to concentrate on our GCSEs so were delighted to get into the studio when they were all finished. We can now look forward to our EP launch on September 10th at the Arts Club in Liverpool,’ said drummer Harry.
