57 Short Info

57 is a two-piece rock band from South Korea featuring male guitarist Junhong Yoon and the female drummer Seol Kim. Originally formed in 2012, 57 began in their hometown of Jeonju as a 3-piece named Rainbow Stage. After losing one of their members, Junhong and Seol decided to carryon on their own under the new name 57, which comes from the song of the same name by the Scottish band Biffy Clyro, a major source of inspiration for both of them.
57 is pronounced as ‘OH-CHILL’ in Korean.

In 2014, the band moved to Seoul, the capital of South Korea, and released their first album, the self-titled EP "57." Heavily influenced by alternative, garage, and punk rock bands, the "57" EP captured the sound fans have grown accustomed to at their electrifying live performances.

Most recently, 57 won first place at KT&G Band Discovery 2015 and reached the finals of Hello Rookies 2015, two of South Korea's most prominent band audition competitions. Currently, the band is gigging throughout South Korea and planning for their first UK tour in 2016.
