The new album from ska-punkers Detached, out since August 23rd 2012 and streaming in full below!
Thanks To Punktastic
Detached are a hard working punk/ska band from South Wales. The band formed in the summer of 2006 and haven't looked back since.
They have played and toured their energetic sweaty set all over the UK and Mainland Europe. Sharing the stage with big names such as;
Less Than Jake, Bowling For Soup, Zebrahead, Wheatus, UK Subs, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Sonic Boom Six, Random Hand,The Skints, We Are The Union, The Toasters, H20, Bomb the Music Industry, Jaya The Cat and many more.
Detached self released their debut EP ‘You Only Live Once' in 2007 which was made at home DIY by printing, burning & designing it themselves. They promoted the E.P playing lots of live shows and a self-booked month long UK tour in the summer of 2008 - the EP was well received and eventually sold out, playing a crucial part in launching the band onto the UK scene.
In March 2010 the band self released their 'None The Wiser' E.P. The E.P has been promoted with more touring and shows thoughout 2010/2011 which has seen the band making new fans and friends all over.
The E.P featured artwork by the legendary Horsebites (Richard Minino) who has worked with bands such as Less Than Jake, Strike Anywhere, The Flatliners and many other awesome bands.
The E.P is available on all major download platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Spotify etc, from the band themselves at all live shows and their bigcartel store.
The band had a great response from the E.P including positive reviews from Punktastic.com and Punknews.org as well as it being well received live during tours all over the UK and Europe.
The bands debut album 'Finding time' was released 23rd August 2012.
"Detached are a six piece ska/punk band from South Wales, the place which is really buzzing with talented musicians these days and you can now add Detached to that list as everything about these guys is fantastic from their big sounding catchy ska/punk music to their artwork and even professional looking promo pictures, these guys clearly know what they want as a band and they are out to achieve the success they deserve and the release of their new EP ‘None The Wiser' should help them out in their mission."
-- Alternative Vision
"Playing an aggressive if not groundbreaking brand of skacore, the young outfit manages to ooze boundless energy and deliver a buoyant half hour set.'
"So if you've managed to convert someone who doesn't like ska that much to actually quite enjoy an EP, you know you're on to good things. If you enjoy homegrown ska bands then Detached are pretty essential listening - for the rest of us, just enjoy a good time, party band doing their thing."
"The brash band serves out a decidedly raspy, scrappy and brass-assisted pop-punk sound that should likely appeal to fans of Less Than Jake, We Are the Union and maybe even the Arrogant Sons of Bitches. "
Totally Fuzzy was the name, music discovery was the game.
It only took one braindead Google monkey to destroy almost 10 years of dedication...
