Debut single - 'Romantic / With Loaded Guns'
Out September 10 - Fierce Panda.
THIS CITY: Arran explains how This City formed… “Chris and I met in October 2005 at a tattoo convention in London through our mutual friend, who also happened to be our tattooist. We got along really well, and both being hugely into tattoos and playing music we decided to start a band. We hooked up with my good friend and original drummer Ken Wong (who drums on the single) and wrote Track One which has now become ‘With Loaded Guns’. It so was amazing to write something so fun in one rehearsal session we decided to carry on. After a month or two, George (bass & vocals) joined (around Jan / Feb 06) and that’s when the band This City was born. Grant (guitar) followed in March / April 06.” They have had a few drummers since forming. Jason who followed Ken is now in The Pipettes and Sam Carter is now the singer of The Architects. Current drummer, Ben Morgan joined the band in April 2007.
Past tours have included...Biffy Clyro, Capdown, As I Lay Dying, The Ghost Of A Thousand, The Beat Union, Brigade, Miss Conduct, From The Wreckage and The Outcry Collective to name a few.
