Coming from the depths of Suffolk, Renegade Twelve were born in 2014 and unleash their new brand of melodic metal that tips its hat to everyone from Iron Maiden, Metallica, Killswitch Engage and Pantera, through to Slash and Alter Bridge. With rock driven riffs, rich vocals and armed with face melting solos, Renegade Twelve create music that is accessible, yet original.
The crew are fronted by Sam Robson, who’s powerful and infectious melodies are the ideal complement to Jacob Mayes’ and Dan Potter’s dual lead guitar flurries. With a strong work ethic and even stronger bond as friends, this five piece band has gigged extensively throughout the UK. By the end of 2016, the tuneful metallers had clocked up over one hundred shows within the calendar year.
Renegade Twelve also have a solid recording pedigree having released their self-titled debut album with Rupert Matthews (collaborating producer for Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath) in Jan 2017. Renegade Twelve’s debut album boasts ten tracks that burst with razor sharp riffs, shrewd phrasing, and dominant magnetising vocal lines. From their first single Heroes Of Mine, which soars and ignites from the get-go, to the dynamic and pummelling Bipolar, Renegade Twelve have physical proof in the shape of this debut offering that they are sure to become a prominent force in the commercial rock/metal scene for years to come.
These guys absolutely rocked the Corp when they supported Tequilla Mockingbyrd. Awesome vocals and a great bunch of lads both on stage and off. If you get the chance to have a chat with them, don’t miss it.
