GIG – The Visitors at The Cellars At Eastney – Fri 25th Nov 2011

Born in a dark, basement studio in Portsmouth, The Visitors have come a long way since their early days of university house parties and intimate front room gigs.

Taking their name from their very first jam song, The Visitors have always been about the energy, which they create through their live performances.

The band’s evolution is heavily reflected in their music, which is a constant reminder of their musical journey through life. Describing themselves as a Folk-Rock band with an Americana twist, their music has been compared to Counting Crows, Whiskeytown and Wilco and have supported the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, Nizlopi, Frank Turner, The Bees, Nick Harper and The Commitments in the past.

Having enjoyed a successful few years with their music being used by Sony Computer Entertainment during the launch campaign of the Playstation 3 and distributed on demos in stores in over 101 countries worldwide. The Visitors debut album Travelling was released in 2009, gaining critical acclaim. Meanwhile, the video for the band’s first single, Another Day made it to the top 100 on the Sony Vidzone chart in its first week alone, making the “2010 Ones to Watch” feature on the homepage of the Vidzone site.

Now hot off the back of the release of their latest, brand new full length album “Daylight Breaking”, The Visitors are looking forward to build on the success and credibility of their debut album. After recently signing a deal with the US music licensing company Audiosocket, becoming part the company’s reputable artist roster, exciting times lie ahead and the band are looking forward to a busy and rewarding time promoting the new album.
