Altered Sky, a four piece pop-rock band from Glasgow, are taking on the college rock scene with their insanely catchy and upbeat sound. Formed in 2010, the band started out by playing small venues, up and down the country, before being thrown into the limelight thanks to their 2014 EP, Stop and Live. Smothered in enthusiastic energy, singles including Live For It and Where I Belong have received airtime on Kerrang Radio, Scuzz and Planet Rock – pretty impressive, huh!?
Already likened to Paramore, the female-fronted band have carved out a lucrative niche thanks to Ana Nowosielska’s sweet tones and infectious lyrics which have also proved popular with fans, seeing the band amass a passionate and loyal fan base. Backing vocalist and drummer Amy Blair has also received praise for her exceptional drumming abilities, not forgetting Richard Passe on guitar and Ross Archibald tackling bass.
The bands latest single Bury It All has been released in the form of a lyric video on Youtube to drum up excitement for the bands upcoming tour, prior to the singles official release on the 20th July. The track appears to be everything fans have hoped for and more and has already been described as truly amazing, epic and awesome! If you’re yet to hear the latest from Altered Sky, check it out now:
The group are gearing up for Summer and the start of their 2015 Bury It All tour with supporting act, Speaking In Shadows. The five date tour will see Altered Sky play throughout England and Scotland, with their Glasgow show set to go through the roof thanks to their Scottish roots and native supporters. Johnny Doom from Kerrang Radio has already given the band his seal of approval, describing the group as brilliant – quite a feat, we’re sure you’d agree!

Not only are the four-piece heading out on tour this year, they will also be visiting schools as part of their Edu-tour; a unique hybrid of pop-rock performance and educational careers seminar, focusing on the music industry and how pupils with potential could possibly follow in the bands footsteps, and carve out a lucrative career as professional musicians. The presentation will also see the band tackle topical subjects such as cyber bulling, safety over social networks and drug & alcohol abuse.
The Edu-tour experience, described by participating teachers as inspiring, has already been shared with schools throughout Edinburgh and Glasgow and is on track to hit the UK, commencing the 10th June. For a full list of dates, see the below poster:
