TheDetours Short Info

Glaswegian rock quintet The Detours have become renowned for their dynamic live shows; leaving many jaws on the floor and venues in their wake.
The Detours combine energetic guitar riffs and soaring sing-a-long choruses to create an impressive modern rock sound.
The band have the pleasure of sharing the stage with many distinguished artists including Europe, Yashin, The Answer and Slaves To Gravity to name but a few.

From day one The Detours were never going to be just another unsigned band. The original
lineup went on to win “Live and Unsigned” in 2009, beating over 10,000 other hopefuls in the
UK’s premier Unsigned Band competition. Over the last couple of years the band have
worked tirelessly on writing, production and live performance. Working with producer Romesh
Dodangoda (Twin Atlantic/Funeral for a Friend) on two EPs since 2011, the combination of
energetic guitar riffs, and catchy sing-a-long choruses saw the videos for “One Last Chance”
and “You Jump, I Jump” on rotation for Kerrang TV from March 2012.
Both singles retain the same simple, catchy, radio-friendly formula that has become the
band’s musical trademark.
Most recently with two sell out shows at Glasgow’s famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and
headlining at the equally famous Barrowlands Ballroom, and several thousand internet “likes”
this band must finally be reaching some kind of critical mass.
2013 promises to be interesting year for The Detours as they add “musical maturity” to their
repertoire, with a clear sense of musical direction complementing the undoubted energy
of the band. With the addition of an experienced manager, new songs in the bag, a tour with
Attack! Attack! (UK) in negotiations and looking forward to releasing a brand new EP with one of Scotland’s top producers in the springtime, finally their hard work appears to be paying off.
