The Aliens are coming

It is unusual for an independently released, debut album to achieve mainstream adult, contemporary pop/rock success as fast as aliensdontringdoorbells’ ‘Arrival’ did.

But then again, aliensdontringdoorbells (pictured) are no ordinary band. Fusing pop, rock, jazz, prog and swing, the one common factor throughout all their songs is that the band is there for a good time.

Finding success in the States with two songs breaking into the Top 30 in the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts (Daylight and It’s Your Night), the Aliens broke through with ease – owing to people relating to their music and its popularity on Spotify playlists.

Now the band are supporting Scouting for Girls on a UK tour which includes a date at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre on 14 October.

Their kind of fun-loving attitude secured the band a spot at the sold out Camper Calling festival, which exposed their brand of energetic rock ‘n’ roll to the right audience.

So, too, is their support slot with Scouting for Girls, a partnership which has led to the latter’s lead singer, Roy Stride, offering to come into the studio with the band, to co-write and produce when they record at Dean Street studios – which has seen the likes of Adele, U2 and Pink Floyd walk through its doors.

aliensdontringdoorbells convey a timeless sound, proving that it is possible to bring back feel-good, ‘get out and dance’ music.

aliensdontringdoorbells released ‘Slipping Away’ on 29 September.
