London's Southbank Crows - Alt Rock/Pop at it's finest

Southbank Crows are an Alternative Rock/Pop band from London, started in the early stages of 2017 by a group of guys who met at a blind audition.

Southbank Crows and their stepladder. They don't get on with their real ladder..

Will Bright (Vocals, Guitar) and Patrick McCann (Keys, Vocals) started working and writing together in London's Southbank where the name was taken from. With their unique blend of Rock, Americana and heartfelt stories, Southbank Crows was formed.

Ryan Fielder (Drums) and Take Hofstra (Bass) completed the line up later that year and the band recorded their first self titled EP at Soundlab Studios. The EP emerged with 100,000+ streams and plays on national radio. This sparked the band to embark on their first UK tour. A follow up EP was released a year later called The Wild Ones.

The band's debut show was in November 2017 at the New Cross Inn. Since then, the band have toured the UK, played dozens of festivals including Togfest, Shynefest, Hammerdown, Sussex Music Festival, The Big Meat, MoFest, Keynsham Music Festival and many more. The band's last show included them as the supporting act for Scouting for Girls.

The band then begun working on their debut album choosing to record with producer Jason Wilson of Steakout Studios. The lead singles from the upcoming album "SW9th" and "Paradise Park" were released in early summer 2019.

In August 2019, Take Hofstra left the band and Matt Willis stepped in to fill the role of bass player.

Southbank Crows debut album is due for release in the spring of 2020.
