about

Since the release of Hit The B Button’s debut EP ‘Apartments’ in 2014, the band have evolved and honed their unique sound, ripping apart the conventional genres and ‘frankensteining’ them back together again to make something completely new.

In late 2014, the guys finally had a steady line-up in place with the new addition of Adam Weston (frontman of Leeds-based band ‘Weaponess’) behind the kit which enabled them to tour in support of their first home recorded EP. In between shows during the ‘Apartments’ tour Hit The B Button began revisiting older song ideas during rehearsals, morphing them into some of their best material to-date with a fresh perspective from Weston. These songs would eventually become ‘To Water On Mars’.

The band started including some of the new material in their live set to high acclaim. Listeners fell in love with the new material so much that these new songs became the foundation for their live performances. Embracing their new more complex sound, a new Hit The B Button had been born and gig goers started asking where to get their hands on the new tunes…

This is when HTBB decided they should head into the studio. Using all of the cash they had scrapped together from the Apartments tour. The band approached Niall Doran of Start Together Studios, Belfast in the Fall of 2015 to record some new music made entirely possible by the support of their fans.

On September 27th 2015, Hit The B Button entered the studio to record four tracks over two days. The band recorded all the instrumentation by getting in the live room together and playing as a full band to help recreate their unique live sound and then overdubbing vocal tracks and some finishing touches at a later date.

NASA were set to make a big announcement at a press conference on the same day Hit The B Button started recording their new record. Lead vocalist/bassist Stuart Ledgerwood who loves all things space related was constantly checking his phone between takes to see what the news was. Eventually somewhere between takes while quoting old Simpsons episodes with Niall an article was finally posted – “NASA has discovered new concrete evidence that at one-time water did indeed exist on Mars”.

about

Hit The B Button! Belfast, UK

A venomous four piece who thrive on ripping apart the conventional and frankensteining it back together to create monstrous Alt Rock magic.

Their twisted blend of face melting riffs and pop sensibilities have been compared to the likes of Biffy Clyro and Jimmy Eat World. With Ledgerwood’s vocals drawing comparisons to Dryden Mitchell of Alien Ant Farm or Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria.

Track Name: Crushed
Did you paint these lights?
Did you watch them glow?
Among the wasteland
Cold by the fire but a warm heart grows
What does it take to feel at all?
Your heart or your soul?
To give you the strength to know now
Where to find a place to belong
Under the darkness of lust and greed
You’ve spent every life that wasn’t yours to bleed
The darkness calls to me
This world’s had enough
Motherfuckers be crushed
