This is an archive of the band profile for Voltz, The.
The Völtz formed in late 2005 in Headingley, North Leeds. They played their first gig to a sold out Leeds Cockpit five weeks later. The following year was spent writing songs, recording, and refining their live sound (not to mention building their own recording and rehearsal studio in the process). Their first demo CD was finally completed in late 2006, and received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike.
The band's sound has been likened to the classic guitar bands of the 1990s, with the brute sonic aura and attitude of early Oasis, guitar riffs that are catchy and heavy in equal measure, and the intrinsic embrace of synthesizers, orchestral instruments, and Hammond organ. Most importantly however, they write great songs.
The Völtz's debut single 'Prophecy' is out now on iTunes and limited edition numbered CD, available from Crash Records, Jumbo Records, and selected independent record shops nationwide..
