Biography

Call to the Faithful are an alt rock band from Peterborough, featuring (pictured left to right) Matt Beard (vocals), Ethan Grice (bass), Will Bowen (drums) & Oscar Smith (guitar).

Following 2020’s melodic rock release ‘Demons’ & off the back of their 1st live album, the lads are back with their biggest & most monstrous sound to date. Animals is an anthem for the age – an anti establishment call to arms for all that are paying attention & angry about the path their leaders force them to walk.

From the moment the track opens you’re hit with huge guitar riffs and heavy drums before Matt’s vocal performance grows ever more angry, culminating in a chorus not unlike you might expect on a Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes record. 

Written prior to the events of 2020 that unfolded into eventual lockdown, it’s hard not to draw the parallels from the lyrics that many will be feeling now – “They keep us locked in cages. They take away our light”. Released just days before the expected removal of lockdown measures, it’s easy to imagine the message will resonate with a listener made to stay inside for much of the last year. The single will follow with an animal-themed lyric video.

Having positioned themselves firmly on the live circuit (gig history) supporting the likes of Dead Reynolds, False Hearts, We Are The Catalyst & Piston –  the return of live music in 2021 will see the band continue to hit the road across the UK.

Lyrics

They keep us locked in cages
They take away our light
We should be free, we should be outside
We will stand up and fight

We won’t’ take this shit
We won’t spread your hate
It isn’t time for us to comply
It’s time to choose our own fate

We’re not one of your slaves
We are animals
We won’t do what you say
We are animals
We won’t play this game
We are animals
We’re through with all of this shit
We’re fucking animals

The post-mortem read
There’s nothing we could do
Well that’s a lie and you know it
A twisted point of view

Humanity didn’t die because it was destined to
You poisoned it with hate and you corrupted minds too
And I’m sick of seeing people that I know become extremists
When we’re all the fucking same, so why don’t you believe it
Now down with the rhetoric that you’re out there on your own
That the wolves are at your door and they’re coming for your throne
I see none of that at all, I see people getting by
Struggling together, united as we try
So don’t listen to your captors who preach their hate
Love everyone around you and rise up and say

We’re not one of your slaves
We are animals
We won’t do what you say
We are animals
We won’t play this game
We are animals
We’re through with all of this shit
We’re fucking animals

Press Quotes

 

“Demons begins with some gentle guitar and it already makes you feel that you are listening to something special. Matt’s voice comes in calmly at first but then he takes control and unleashes a sorrowful and angry vocal – the mental power of which is truly frightening. Each instrument demonstrates the sound skillfully and each one gives the song something special.”

Music Matters review of Demons

 

“Huge, unique and powerful sound. It rocks and crashes with a punk edge. Nice and furious, but melodic and so well put together. It’s an epic sound.”

Matchbox Music PR on Ultraviolet Wasteland

 

“I was hooked on that guitar riff from the get go.

Then I read their bio which talks about their “…unique brand of hard-hitting guitar riffs.” – no argument there.”

Tony Bell, Grapevine Live on single Sin City
