This Burning Age Short Info

This Burning Age’s music is violently beautiful, bridging the “Electro-Rock” divide with startling finesse.

Their influences range into diverse and often conflicting genres: New Wave , Punk, Post-Punk, Industrial, Neue Deutsche Härte, Synth-pop, Post-Rock, Goth, Drum and Bass and Trip-hop with the end result giving rise to a depth, quality and intelligence of song writing and a distinctive, individual voice all of their own.

Originating from Birmingham, U.K. , This Burning Age are:

Friday - Vocals, Guitar, Synths, Arrangements
Jon Farrington-Smith - Guitar, Keys
Davey Bennett - Bass Guitar
Jack Josypenko - Drums

Here’s a small selection of what people within the music industry and fans are saying about This Burning Age and the first two releases in their current 4 EP cycle:

“Nine Inch Nails meets The Smashing Pumpkins and Sonic Youth. 9/10” – Mind Equals Blown

“we have something remarkable on our hands. 8/10” – This Is Not A Scene

“Definitely are a band to look out for” – Mutiny Press

“Hits you like a tonne of bricks. 8/10” – Soundscape Magazine

Interpol meets Sonic Youth in thoughtful, dark “alt-electro-rock”...they deserve attention - Birmingham Live Review

Every once in a while a band comes along that that defies the current practice of genre pigeon holing, This Burning Age are just such a band. Technically it’s quite brilliant. You find complex layers of distorted guitars and synths, with dark, brooding drum and bass lines. The use of analogue equipment rather than the more modern digital equivalents give it a real retro feel without losing the up to date minimalist approach. I can almost imagine Eno doing something like this. A stunning debut album. - Midlands Rocks Online Music Magazine

'Human Condition' holds a Duran Duran-esque suaveness while maintaining the credibility that comes with good, hard-hitting rock music. In a world where young bands think that a few flashy wailings from a Happy Meal synthesizer make their music electronic, This Burning Age really know what they're doing and where the right noises fit. Whether it's the apocalyptic groans of 'Repeat To Fade' or the oddly uplifting 'End Game', this album is a goddamn glorious example of electro/industrial/what-have-you rock. Your ears need this wonderful punishment. - Black Velvet Magazine

A whole lot of passion, work, thoughts and emotions have been put into ‘A Muzzle for the Masses’. It’s audible in every note that’s being played and word that’s being sung. The record’s going to send you on a rollercoaster ride through various emotional states and by all means should be checked out by any fan of ambitious, electronic/rock music. I think this band’s got a bright future ahead of them - “Reflections of Darkness” - German Online Music Magazine
