Absolution formed in May 2010 with the sole intention of fulfilling an obligation for a 40 minute support slot. Now, with the second album Live From The Front released, international sales and critical acclaim for debut effort Issues along with a growing fan base, that 40 minute support slot has over-run somewhat!
With three musicians from different backgrounds and different styles, Absolution create a fresh and exciting sound. A British blues-rock power trio, they sound like a souped-up Cream, with elements of early ZZ Top and Joe Bonamassa thrown in for good measure! Having already shared stage with blues legends Dr Feelgood, Danny Bryant, Larry Miller, King King; Absolution have also performed two gigs at London’s exclusive Embassy Club and the iconic 100 club! They are headlining arts centres, theatres, clubs and also managed to fit in a storming set at the British Rock & Blues festival in January 2013!
The band took home two awards at the 2013 WRC Awards - 'Ones To Watch' and 'Best Guitar Solo'.
Absolution are a fantastic live act, bringing energy and enthusiasm to every gig they play. Not only playing their own material flawlessly and with tremendous attack, they also throw in a few classics for good measure, keeping the feel of the original intact while still putting their own unique stamp on everything they play! Blues purists and music lovers everywhere have never been disappointed yet by an Absolution concert! Indeed, many fans have been heard after shows commenting that Absolution are "The best thing I've seen and heard for many years!"
Come and see for yourself!
