Pocket Apocalypse Short Info

"They show great promise indeed with this excellent take on melodic post-rock fusion. Their vocals and instrumentals put them somewhere in the ballpark of Failure, A Perfect Circle and early Oceansize" - Prog Magazine

"

A gluttonous heap of interlinking guitar lines and evocative vocals, think And So I Watch You From Afar meets Queens of The Stone Age with an obvious mainstream bent" – ManGoneBlog


Finding themselves out on a limb in the city of Liverpool - not known for its kindness to alternative rock bands - Pocket Apocalypse are turning their differences into their strengths as they artfully interweave post-rock, math-rock and progressive influences into an anthemic sound that often defies expectation.



Already drawing early comparisons with the likes of Oceansize, Arcane Roots, ASIWYFA and Queens Of The Stone Age, their individuality on the local scene has helped them to secure a host of support slots with the likes of Arcane Roots, This Town Needs Guns, Black Peaks, Cleft, Victor Villarreal (Owls, Cap n Jazz, Joan of Arc), God Damn, Fatherson and many more. 

The band have also played sets at ArcTanGent, Liverpool Sound City, Threshold, Newpath and Liverpool Fringe Festivals.

Debut album 'Under Our Sky' was released in March 2015 to overwhelmingly positive critical reviews from the likes of Echoes & Dust, Punktastic and Prog Magazine, with the latter hailing it as an “excellent take on melodic post-rock fusion”.



The album can be streamed in full at: pocketapocalypse.bandcamp.com.
