After having made the rounds of their softer side with their last for-charity effort, ‘CRISIS‘, Partisan return to that harder yet melodic side with their new track titled ‘Today Somehow’. This, to me, is a giant leap in their musical evolution as they expand their sound and their song-space with the addition of ‘new-wave’ style keys expanding the melody and thicker guitars that bring the song to a lush crescendo in a way that only a true Partisan can deliver!
Partisan formed in Manchester, UK, early 2013. As the name implies they are passionate about their cause, which is to inject some authentic rock into the limelight, as serious contenders to pick up the music scene with punchy, bold and unflinching rock anthems!
The band’s members are Stuart Armstrong (lead vocals and guitar), Dan Albon (bass guitar) and Rob Jones (drums). Founding member Stuart Armstrong (lead vocals and guitar) left his previous band Six10Repeater, that disbanded in 2012 but returned to the scene with Partisan working on new material with his rock edge and progression from Six10.
They have achieved numerous accolades including being awarded as ‘Best Unsigned Band’ by XFM in 2009, two tracks, Hearts and Nails and Today Somehow featured Pro Evolution Soccer, supported prominent bands such as Nine Black Alps, Baby Shambles, Status Quo and The Damned as well as being reviewed by influential peers within the industry, Mark Radcliffe, and BBC Introducing.
The band has recorded and released many rock anthems, including the very popular Two Lovers and Juggernaut in recent years, followed by Ashes and Too Late in 2017. They have had the pleasure of working with notable producers, Jim Spencer, Christophe – Oxygene Studios and Mike Bennett.
But now, they have another single release, Today Somehow which will be officially released on Halloween. This is a re-release of the track that has been re-recorded, mixed and mastered with Mike Bennett. Their melodic rock is an inevitable feature of the song, mixed with Stuart Armstrong’s haunting vocals.
In addition, they have just released a single, Crisis for the homelessness charity CRISIS UK which has received fantastic support from fans. This was born from their support of the Musicians Against Homelessness Initiative that they participated in last year, that also supported the charity. You can find links to this as part of the press pack and they would appreciate all the support for this great cause.
They have had an exciting year, playing huge gigs such as The British Sound Project, Victoria Warehouse and before ending 2017, they have further gigs lined up.
