Colour of Noise are a Brighton-based band that have a passion for cranked-to-the-max, vintage-influenced sound, delivered with skill and abandon (especially in live performance), adds serious power and drive to their crafted, meaningful lyrics, exploring present day "issues of permanence."
CoN's founder, guitarist Bruce John Dickinson played in the charting hard rock band Little Angels between 1988-1994. Little Angels' album 'Jam' went to number one in the UK album chart in 1993 with the band enjoying 11 Top Forty hit singles, which still get well-deserved airplay on Planet Rock today. Little Angels opened for Guns N' Roses at the Marquee Club in 88 and went on to tour with
Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, ZZ Top, Aerosmith and other heavyweight acts. The band played their final gig to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall in 1994. They would, however, reform in 2012 for the Download Festival.
The reunion revived Bruce's determination to perform again, leading him to form Colour of Noise in 2015 with friends linked and gathered throughout the years: Vocalist Matt Mitchell from Furyon; and' Silent' Ben Daniels on bass. CoN's current line-up reunites Bruce John Dickinson with fellow Little Angel Mark Richardson (also of Feeder and Skunk Anansie) on drums.
Midlands Rocks described the band as "ones to watch in 2016." Colour of Noise's self-titled debut was pre-released via Pledge Music in November 2015, following the road testing of songs on tour with Thunder, at the Download and Steel House festivals and Hard Rock Hell IX.
CoN's last three singles ('Cant Take It With You', 'Can You Hear Me', and 'Medicine Man' ) taken from the debut album have all been playlisted by Planet Rock, featured as Classic Rock's 'Tracks Of The Week and gained plenty of regional airplay.
