Bulletproof Bomb Viola Beach The Elephant Trees at Oporto Wednesday 23rd September 2015 16+ The Bulletproof Bomb, a brand new five piece band from greater London. Members – Joel Douglas, Mike Hendry, Thomas Butler, Robbie Cottom and George Thompson. At the age of 18 the band came on to the scene last year and have already built a reputation for their raucous guitar driven sound and explosive live performances. Originally the band started off as only two of the original members (Joel and Mike) writing and recording demos in their bedroom. After gaining interest from publishers The Bulletproof Bomb evolved into a five piece set up so they could play their music as a live band. The band self released two singles last year through Paper Round Records ‘Suitcase’ and ‘Five Green Bottles’ which gained unprecedented support from the likes of Zane Lowe and the second single even ended up on the BBC Radio 1 playlist. This lead on to the band landing some great gigs playing the likes of Bestival, Boardmasters and headlining the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds. The band are published by A Songs and managed by Anglo Management. All the bands material has been recorded and produced by Rory Attwell (The Vaccines, Yuck and The Palma Violets) in one of the coolest and most unique studios in London ‘The Lightship 95’. After laying down the foundations last year the band have been hotly tipped for 2015. Get ready, The Bulletproof Bomb are about to explode!
