World Vs. World
World Vs. World has been a name on the South Wales music scene since 2007, and has consisted of the current line-up of founder members, Kirk Bowen (vocals/guitar) and Damian Harris (drums) being joined by Krist Davison (bass/vocals) in late 2009.
After spending many years honing their sound on the road and with the self-released “Our Own Personal Tabloid” (2007) and “The Six Degrees of Separation” (2009) E.P.s, World Vs. World have managed to gain a solid reputation as a live act and also in the studio, and this helped contribute to them catching the eye of independent label, Death Monkey Records, with whom they signed in late 2012.
Musically the band’s influences both differ and unite due to vast musical tastes and backgrounds, and the songs combine haunting vocal melodies woven to intricate but powerful guitars from Kirk, backed up by the solid, flowing basslines and thumping beats of the Krist-Damian rhythm section combination, to create something which sounds both familiar, yet refreshingly different.
Add this to a passionate and energetic live presence and you can see how over the years, World Vs. World have become such a prominent band on the South Wales scene and have gained the respect from fellow musicians, fans, and promoters, alike. It has all also contributed to acquiring a truly worldwide reach with fans in over 30 countries around the world, whilst regularly making the playlists of a number of UK and internet radio stations.
World Vs. World have just released our debut album, The Sentinel Paradox, through Death Monkey Records, and have recruited the services of Adam Lee (China Drum) who has taken on managerial/mentorial duties for the band as of March 2015 and became an official Dirtbag Clothing band in July 2015 (www.dirtbagclothing.com)
