Croydon band hope to make it big
After 15 years cementing their place on the Croydon rock scene, trio The 23 Enigma are preparing to make a step up to the big time.
Combining elements of prog rock reminiscent of Led Zeppelin with 90’s grunge the three grew up listening to, The 23 Enigma has begun attracting attention from a number of record labels, and next month will put out their first EP.
Bassist Jules Eccleston, says: "We’re not daunted by the step-up at all. You can’t be afraid to push yourself."
Singer and guitarist Dave Sears adds: "We have been at that level before so it is all about getting ourselves to that level of recognition again."
The three previously performed as part of band Flight 16, touring the UK and US.
As part of a bid to spread their music the four-track EP, due to be released after Easter, will be distributed for free to gig goers, as well as offered as demos to record labels.
Drummer Chris Hancox, said: "The industry has changed so much in the last four years. There are so many different ways to spread your music. We have been spending a lot of time in the studio this year, but will be back gigging more in the summer."
