LOCAL hard rock band Crössfire has spent the last few months of Shetland’s relatively lenient form of lockdown to work on their second EP, which will be released on Friday.
Appropriately named Locked Down, the five songs on the new EP all take inspiration from the band’s influences such as AC/DC, Airbourne and Motörhead.
The new EP is also the first to feature the band’s new singer Kari Williamson who joined in May of last year.
Crössfire’s line-up consists of rhythm guitarist Rowen Thomson, bassist Lewis Hall, lead singer Kari Williamson, drummer Chris Coles and band leader/lead guitarist Stuart Alderson.
All the songs on the EP were written by all members, and then produced, mixed and finally mastered by Chris Coles.
Although still relatively new on the local rock scene, Crössfire have been known for their highly energetic live performances thanks to the antics of guitarists Thomson and Alderson.
Locked Down will be available to stream and purchase on all major platforms from Friday.
