“Channelling moments of Queens Of The Stone Age, Pink Floyd and Muse in their creeping, unsettling alt.rock” Team Rock
In the Summer of 2016, Laurent Barnard and Steve Sears decided it was time to make a record together. Not only were the two old school friends but in the last few years Steve had produced two albums for Barnard’s punk band, Gallows. Soon, drummer Jack Kenny (Nervus / Blackhole) joined the freshly named Gold Key and by the autumn James Leach of heavy prog legends Sikth completed the line-up

Funeral Shakes are a four piece rock n’ roll band from Watford UK, who formed from the ashes of The Smoking Hearts, including founding members Calvin Roffey (bass/vocals) and Simon Barker (guitar). The duo worked tirelessly demoing tracks before embarking out into Watford’s music scene to track down the rest of their band. Funeral Shakes were swiftly joined by Gallows’ drummer Lee Barratt, after a chance meeting at a Metz show; the line up would finally be complete with the addition of Nervus guitarist/vocalist Em Foster.
