“By taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid, Sonic Boom Six demand attention.” Kerrang!
SONIC BOOM SIX is an explosive and outspoken five-piece rock band from Manchester, UK described by Kerrang! as “taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid”. With a live show known for “clashing activism and good times”, SB6 play firmly for the dance-floor while retaining enough power and aggression to be an active fixture of the UK’s rock scene. The Boom’s influences include The Specials, The Streets, and Public Enemy and the band signed with Xtra Mile Recordings in early 2012, who released their self-titled titled album ‘Sonic Boom Six’ on October 17th 2012.
Having toured the UK, Europe, the US and Japan constantly for the last six years (while also managing to release three albums on their own label Rebel Alliance Recordings) the band took time out in 2011 to write the ‘Sonic Boom Six’ album and record it with Peter Miles (The King Blues, Futures, We Are The Ocean). The release of the infectious first single ‘For The Kids of The Multiculture’ gained SB6 a new audience and industry champions, being playlisted on national and regional radio and TV, gaining ‘Single Of The Week’ on Kerrang! Radio and being chosen as ‘Record of The Day’ on industry tastemaker site recordoftheday.com.
Sonic Boom Six has released 4 studio albums and two full-length compilations with countless singles, EPs and compilation appearances. SB6 has performed headline tours of Europe, America and Japan as well as slots at festivals including Glastonbury, Download, Sonisphere and the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festival. Sonic Boom Six has written and performed songs that have appeared on BBC Radio 1, Channel 4, BBC 2 (TV), Rock Band and Sims 3 video games and much more.
