It’s unusual for an independently released, debut album to achieve mainstream adult contemporary pop/rock success as fast as aliensdontringdoorbells’ Arrival did. But then again, aliensdontringdoorbells are no ordinary band.
Fusing together pop, rock, jazz, prog and swing, the one common factor throughout all their songs is that this band is truly here for a good time. Finding success in the States with two songs breaking into the Top 30 in the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts (Daylight and It’s Your Night), the Aliens broke through stateside with unprecedented ease - owing to the relatability of their music and its popularity on Spotify playlists and others.
It’s this kind of fun-loving attitude which secured the boys a spot at the sold out Camper Calling festival, a spot which exposed their timeless brand of energetic rock ‘n’ roll to precisely the right audience. So, too, is their support slot with Scouting For Girls, a partnership which has led to SFG lead singer, Roy Stride, offering to come into the studio with the band, to co-write and produce when they record at legendary Dean Street Studios - which has seen the likes of Adele, U2 and Pink Floyd walk through its doors.
aliensdontringdoorbells convey a truly timeless sound, proving that it’s possible to reinvent the mainstream, and bring back feel good, get out and dance music. Proving that rock ‘n’ roll is alive and truly kicking, aliensdontringdoorbells are here to stake their claim on the adult pop-rock territory which is ready for something brand new.
Aliensdontringdoorbells’ tour with Scouting For Girls kicked off at the end of September at the William Aston Hall in Wrexham, so Headliner recently took the opportunity to find out how things are going…
You’re currently on tour with Scouting For Girls, how did that come about?
Luckily, we managed to do some festivals this year, and we were on the same line up as SFG. We had previously been discussing contacting Roy, from SFG, as he is a great producer. We had already submitted to a few different bands for the support slot. So, after the festivals, we had a chat with Roy via Instagram about producing a few songs for us, he said he would love to do it, so we booked Dean Street Studios in and then we heard the wonderful news that they would like to offer us the main support for the tour - what a wonderful day that was.
