Piston are a British five-piece rock ‘n’ roll engine made up of four members from the Midlands greased with a vocal roar from the south; which, when put together and fired up produce a no-nonsense sound not to be reckoned with!

The band release the second single ‘Rainmaker’ from the upcoming album on Friday 31st May. The single was produced by Dan Swift and remixed by Romesh Dodangoda. Their first single ‘One More Day’ received airplay on BBC Radio 2’s Rock Show with Johnnie Walker, Planet Rock and many more.

‘Rainmaker’ is a thunderstorm of slow dirty riffs, kept up to pace with the constant thumping from the rhythm section and preacher style vocals, it is the very essence of rolling thunder forced down the ear drums. This track never strays too far from its path and just when you think it’s going to give you a break in the pre-chorus, it drags you back by the scruff of the neck into the heavy ostinato!

Guitarist Jack Edwards has described the recording process of the track: “Rainmaker was the very first track we recorded for the album. You can hear all of our excitement in the track — we were all back together in one room and we tracked it right then and there! We love it and its not perfect, and we don’t want it to be — rock n’ roll has never been perfect. It’s a huge step in the new sound of Piston, it will easily stand there with some of the modern greats, but it most certainly pays homage to some of our idols.”

Piston will release their long awaited self-titled debut album on Friday 13th September 2019. The album was recorded at Silk Mill Studios in Newcastle Under Lyme and produced by Dan Swift (Iggy Pop, Depeche Mode) and singles remixed by Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Bring Me The Horizon).

The upcoming album features the searing, infectious anthems — ‘One More Day’ and ‘Rainmaker’. The album is a rock n’ roll rollercoaster ride treading the fine line between chaos and radio friendly rebellious rock. It’s got the guitar spirit of the Cult and the hi-octane energy of the Foo Fighters.

This album is the embodiment of hard work for the boys, having recorded one album already and choosing to scrap it all and start again in the pursuit of finding ‘their sound’. The album tips it’s hat to different genres as it progresses, but never strays too far from the path its intended to go down, it shows diversity, power and confidence from the first contact between stick and drum right until the last chord has been struck.

Piston will embark on joint headline UK tour with Collateral in September 2019 to promote the album. Tickets for all concerts can be booked from www.pistonuk.com.
