This Burning Age

This Burning Age’s music is violently beautiful, bridging the “Electro-Rock” divide with finesse. Building on their first studio album “A Muzzle for the Masses”, they’ve now released the first of four 3 track EP’s that meld distorted guitar riffs with stark, angular synth lines, electro beats, driving bass and darkly shimmering vocals. Entitled “Supplication” it’s available now from iTunes, Amazon, .co, .de and everything in between.

Here’s a small selection of what people within the music industry and fans are saying about This Burning Age:

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

This band are one of my “Midlands bands to watch out for” – Emma Scott – Radio DJ/Promoter (Kerrang Radio, Q Radio, Heart FM)

‘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

I believe you have the potential to go all the way and more, that the album is stronger than much of what is currently polluting the music industry – Vince Appleby – Scout for Universal Music Group

The music has a real edge and passion – Paul Murphy – founder of Songwriters Café and formerly of “The Destroyers”

Looking forward to seeing you become the next big star in your genre…your work is beyond brilliant; genius, in fact. ‘This Burning Age’ are going to set the world on fire – Leia Honda Scandur – U.S. D.J/Director/Producer

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

There are probably not more than a handful of bands that inspire me with every single one of their songs, but This Burning Age definitely have a place among those who do – Luna – Head of the This Burning Age German Street Team (who organised a group of fans to fly over to watch them support Hundred Reasons)
