The Exits - The Fear Inside

from by Various



The Exits

The Exits have become best known to play a mix of energetic synth rock, continually evolving from guitar and a smattering of electronica, to a heavy synthesised, dance orientated audio assault.

With their eclectic mix of electro-indie-rock, the band focus on driving beats, pumped up bass that synths and guitar building up their dance sound. Ray’s lead vocal is intense with an indelibly coarse edge. You're close to imagining what THE EXITS are about.

On the back of their last release, The Exits signed a deal with MTV to feature the bands new track on the forthcoming series of Dirty Sanchez. In addition, received 7digital track of the week (No. 2 in their charts), a Bebo video featuring receiving over 100,000 views and TV coverage on Sky channels.

‘The Exits’ EP was met with excellent reviews and radio support, including BBC London, Radio 1 Northern Ireland, Kerrang Radio (ones to watch), while the band also picked up a music award for ‘Best Song’ as well as ‘Sexiest Male Vocal’. It all seemed to be going so well for the Portsmouth band, but suddenly within band issues led to arguments that would cause the band to take a break. This was a break that would span for almost 2 years. The album was put on hold.

Finally, things began to turn themselves in 2013, when the band solidly reunited and got back into the studio. Currently recording their debut album, things have never looked so positive for The Exits. With label, Criminal Records, always supporting the band from the wings, it is with great anticipation that the band will finally reveal their scene debut in September 2014.

Previous show include Hi:Fi Festival (Winchester), The Wedgewood Rooms (Portsmouth), Brixton Jamm (London) followed by DJ sets from Bez (Happy Mondays) and Mani (Primal Scream), Water Rats, The Marquee. They have made their presence known, and have been welcomed by local indie types and dance promoters alike, including PunchFunk, 12th Hour, Sumo, Rossco, UYN, PSP and Contact.
