Described by the press as ’one of the most impressive new names on the melodic rock radar’ this young, British quintet fronted by current TNT vocalist Tony Mills are riding a resurgence in melodic rock. Originally founded in Wales around the talents of keyboard player Gareth David Noon, guitarist Christopher Gould and bassist Gareth Vanstone, the band were keen to capitalize on their burgeoning reputation and returned to the studio late last year to begin recording their follow up at M2 Studios, Wolverhampton, England.
They recently completed a highly successful tour of the UK alongside Crash Diet and Houston, ending with a triumphant night at London’s Islington O2 Academy. Classic Rock Magazine commented: ‘Introducing a couple of impressive-sounding new songs, “Philadelphia” and “Cry”, they cruised through the cream of the debut leaving the audience drooling. Given the overwhelming response to their debut album, headliners Houston were adjudged the top dogs of course, but I have to say that Serpentine pushed the Swedes every darned step of the way!‘
Playing an unashamedly keyboard led, yet guitar infused brand of hard rock, the band have once again teamed up with producer Sheena Sear (Magnum) and her crystal clear production on “Living And Dying In High Definition” has captured the muscle and melody the band display live.
