The Tirith Short Info

The Tirith are a cult alternative / progressive rock band that have somehow found themselves transported by time into the 21st Century. The band were formed in the 70s in Loughborough where they played as their previous incarnation Minas Tirith. Coming together again in 2010 they are now building their reputation in the Prog Rock world, definitely a case of unfinished business.
The band’s track “The Daughter Of The Water” featured on the May 2013 cover disc of Prog Magazine who said of the band “The Tirith are both hardy veterans and cult heroes of the UK Prog scene. Reactivated in 2010, a new EP of blues-tinged Prog wonderment in January proved that their creative flame still burns brightly”.
The current lineup comprises founding members Tim Cox (guitars) and Dick Cory (bass and vocals), with Carl Nightingale on drums. The Tirith’s music is a harder edged guitar based Prog than many current UK bands, the early reference points being Cream, Led Zeppelin, Love, Pink Floyd and The Doors. Current influences are mostly from abroad, relating to bands such as Dream Theatre, Opeth, Tool, Katatonia and Spocks Beard.
In 2014 The Tirith played a support spot with The Enid, at the CAMBRIDGE ROCK FESTIVAL, the RESONANCE FESTIVAL, and DANFEST4. So far in 2015 The Tirith have headlined one show themselves at Real Time Live in Chesterfield and were invited by the Classic Rock Society to support to Karnataka.
The band can create various moods featuring both rock ballads and acoustic material in the set. With the Tirith it is all about good quality songs alongside the virtuoso guitar playing of the bands guitarist Tim Cox. Recently the band has introduced live keyboards into the stage show. With an album to follow later in 2015 the Tirith are a band to watch.
