Cheshire rockers 1968 launch their debut EP at Telford’s Warehouse on Friday, January 15.

The clue to the band’s sound is in their name, as many of their influences come from the year Led Zeppelin were formed. You will also hear echoes of Black Sabbath and Cream in their crunching, fuzzy riffs.

Free copies of the band’s self-titled EP will be given out on the night, and there will be merchandise on sale too.

Formed in 2013, the band are led by vocalist Jimi Ray. Completing the 1968 sound are Sam Orr (lead guitar), Tom Richards (bass) and Tom Drury (drums).

A statement from the 1968 promises “new material, wiser outlooks and more volume” for their Telford’s performance.

They add: “Expect loud, expect fuzz, expect riffs, expect beer, spirits and wine, expect cold smokes out front, expect tinnitus, expect 1968.”

Entry is free before 10pm, and £4 thereafter.
