Exit Calm album&Single release news

Hearts and Minds [edit] video
Got this off Exit Calm management:

May 3rd sees the release of 'Hearts and Minds' the unstoppable new single from South Yorkshire based four piece, Exit Calm. A rousing and commanding call to arms, showcasing their distinctive wall of immense and anthemic sound, the track is the perfect introduction to a band whose sincerity, presence and originality resonates both sonically and soulfully, serving to remind you what real bands are all about.

Taken from their forthcoming self titled debut album produced by Paddy Byrne (Unkle, The Hours) and mixed by Ulrich Schnauss (Longview, The Engineers) 'Hearts and Minds' proved a live favourite as the band travelled the UK last year supporting the likes of Echo and The Bunnymen, The Charlatans, Modest Mouse and Soulsavers; gathering and expanding a fervently loyal fan base along the way.

With heady guitars, ambient and effect laden layers, echoes of musical heroes such as The Verve and Spiritualized are undeniable, yet Exit Calm's delivery is incomparably unique and in a class of its own. This is a band that once seen, leave no doubt in belief; coming alive on stage and evoking an atmosphere of epic proportions.

Hearts and Minds is available on digital download and heavyweight coloured 7" vinyl on May 3rd with their debut album 'Exit Calm' following on May 17th through Club AC30.

The single can be pre-ordered from Club AC30 here:

Exit Calm are: Nicky Smith (vocals) , Rob Marshall (guitars), Simon Lindley. (bass) and Scott Pemberton (drums).

" With ragged vocals and swathes of widescreen guitar effects reminiscent of early verve, South Yorkshire’s four-piece Exit Calm have a penchant for all things epic" (Q MAGAZINE).

"Exit Calm are so far out in front of the rest of the competition at present it's frightening. In fact, you can almost imagine bands forming in their wake as we speak." (DROWNED IN SOUND).

"Unashamedly epic, their effects-laden sound adds a wide-eyed romantic edge that is alluringly easy to lose yourself in." (THE METRO)
