The Leathernecks Short Info

This band from Rotherham started out (as many bands do) playing in a five piece Indie/Rock covers band. After a few years of playing together up and down the UK and throughout Europe four members decided to have a go at doing some of their own stuff... in late 2013 The Leathernecks were born, fronted by Guitarist Nick Wild who brings a 'very Sheffield' vocal to the mix. His style is often compared to the likes of Milburn and Arctic Monkeys with a sprinkling of Courteeners very own Liam Fray added in for good measure.

The band are in general fast paced, upbeat and very energetic, drawing on clear influences from The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and The Libertines with obvious comparisons emerging towards Sheffields Milburn and The Courteeners. All blended together to give a new, yet also very familiar sound. Having honed their skills playing covers together over the years and with a full repertoire of original songs in the locker, these four lads are working hard to put their own stamp on the Sheffield Indie Music Scene. Building on the release of their debut track Bunny Boiler in June 2014 and with their debut EP released on 19th March 2015, it is looking like a busy year already for these lads.
