UK rock upstarts Reaper In Sicily are braced to up the ante with their brand new single ‘Horizons’, out 25th March, taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Islands’, which is also due for national release on 10th June.
 
Combining the contagious fluency and dexterity of The Blackout and The Used meshed with the biting attack of Rise Against, Reaper In Sicily have crafted a sound that will blow your face right off. The South Wales riff merchants have everything in place to set loose their spanking new single ‘Horizons’, and debut album, as they look to explode in 2013.
 
Originally spawned in 2009, Reaper in Sicily hit the scene with instant impact and soon won best unsigned live act by Kerrang! Magazine. The self-proclaimed ‘Power pop’ quintet then went on to sign a record deal with Search and Destroy Records and Raw Power Management. The band’s first single 'We Are The Show' graced TV screens throughout the nation, and the record received widespread critical acclaim, including radio airplay on BBC Radio One. 
 
Sadly though, in March 2010, Matthew Jenkins (guitarist) was diagnosed with leukaemia, and the band were instantly placed on a hiatus until the guitarist was well enough to play again. Reaper then made an astonishing come back at the Reading and Leeds festivals in support of their debut EP 'Eden'. The Welsh five-some then went on to release their sophomore EP 'Chapters' and extensively toured throughout the UK  in support of it, playing with everyone from Kids In Glass Houses, The Subways, Max Raptor, Attack! Attack!, Mallory Knox, Hawthorne Heights, Fightstar, The xcerts, Straight Lines, I Spy Strangers, Evarosa, Hildamay, and many many more. Towards the end of 2012, Reaper In Sicily bedded down at Longwave Studio with Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral For A Friend & Kids In Glass Houses) at the controls, to record their self-funded Debut Album 'Islands'.
 
Now loaded to the gills with a stunning debut album, the spirited five-piece release their record’s first single ‘Horizons’, out Monday 25th March. ‘Horizons’ is a glaring statement of intent from the band. Hugely anthemic with cut throat riffery, soaring melodies, and raucous energy, the single is destined to propel the quintet’s profile, and with further touring in the works for the late summer/autumn period, and the national launch of the album in June, there’s no stopping Reaper this time!
 
The album, ‘Islands’,  is set  for national release on 10th June, and new single ‘Horizons’ is out Monday 25th March.
