Counterfeit: 'The sound we’ve created resonates with us as a whole'

Rock band Counterfeit, made up of actor-turned-musician Jamie Bower, Jimmy Craig, Sam Bower, Tristan Marmont and Roland Johnson, have opened up about their sound and style.

During an interview with Wonderland magazine, the band explained that their live stage show is frenetic and completely engaging:

"Expect sweat, loud noises and a sea of black. If you like music and instruments you might enjoy what we have to offer. If you don’t however, we’re going to have a problem, because we have are a very particular set of skills. Skills we have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make us a nightmare for people like you. If you let your inhibitions go now, that’ll be the end of it. We will not look for you, we will not pursue you. But if you don’t, we will look for you, we will find you, and we will sonically assault you."

When asked about the progresion of their sound, the boys added that they have brought together all of their influences to create what fans will hear on their latest release:

"Since the inception of the band the style has remained the same. The music has always had a punky/heavy vibe which we think encompasses our collective feelings. It’s hard in a band because everyone has their own interests, but we feel this sound that we’ve created really resonates with us as a whole." 

The band's tour dates are as follows:

  • 27.4 – Rome Orion
  • 29.4 – Milan Fabrique
  • 30.4 – Zurich Dynamo
  • 3.5 – Barcelona Bikini
  • 4.5 – Madrid Caracol
