Those four fresh-faced guys above are Lanarkshire's epic rockers 4dayweekend. At the beginning of the year they released their cracking 6-track Urban Lies & Rural Skies EP, and it is very impressive indeed. I asked guitarist Darren a few questions about the band, and what we can expect from them this year. Take it away Darren...
Kowalskiy: Who are 4dayweekend?
Darren: 4dayweekend are a rock pop quartet from Motherwell consisting of Grant Carrol: vocals and piano, Darren Hay: Guitar and vocals, Scott Hayes: Drums, guitar and vocals, Scott Macfarlane: Bass and vocals
Kowalskiy: How would you describe 'your sound'?
Darren: We write Melodic rock with big gang vocals and hard hitting choruses.
Kowalskiy: What can we expect from you in 2011?
Darren: Plenty of gigs both local and across the UK touring our Urban Lies & Rural Skies EP. We also have some new tracks in the works which will hopefully become available in the not to distant future. In addition, we are supporting Toploader in the King Tuts in March, and we also hope to be playing some of the Scottish Festivals this year so keep an eye out.
So Toploader are still going then... who knew?! Anyway, as Darren said, their rather good Urban Lies & Rural Skies EP is out now. You can get your hands on a download from iTunes. If you're not convinced yet, then here's the pick of the tracks, the rousing anthem When I Go. This oughta do it!
