The Reaper is metal band aged 13-16 creating a bit of a storm around the country and a product of Witchwood School of Rock. They are: Joey Kenny (14), Harry Winks (13), Joe Landles (16) and Callum Woodward (15).
They were nominated by David Cameron as the best band in his constituency and went on to become runners up inRock The House 2012. They were semi finalists and awarded ‘most shocking band’ in theMetal To The Masses which was a competition to win a slot at Bloodstock.
They’ve had a busy couple of years, with many festival performances which included taking to the main stage two years in a row at Alex James’The Big Feastival alongside Razorlight, Gaz Coombes and Texas. They did 29 gigs in 2012 alone which must make them one of the hardest working bands around.
They’ve also played festivals at Crabstock, Riverside,Cornbury andChippy and have the ultimateaspiration of performing at Download some day. They caused a riot at the Milton Queen's Jubilee Festival where the local residents and Woman’s Institute complained that they were too loud!!! By the time the Police arrived, they had packed up and were rocking hard again at the Chipping Norton Festival for their second booking of the day!!
They’ve been gigging pretty much every weekend supporting the likes ofTrucker Diablo andTragedy at theO2 Academy in Oxford, Mentallica, Guns 2 Roses, Midgar and Iron On Maiden. Other venues they have played are Fat Lil’s, Witney (their favourite), The Roadmender, Northampton, The Facebar Reading and The Wheatsheaf. They’ve been played onBBC Introducing, Biker Rock Radio and Midlands Metalheads Radio.
Their debut video forCry Me A Place To Be now has 10,000 hits on YouTube.
They’ve just released their second studio album entitled ‘You Will Fall’ which was launched at theSkeletor Night at the O2 Academy in Oxford on 26th January. Have a listen to one of the tracks called‘You’re Not What You Say’
