"Recluse strike the right balance between classic rock and modern rock... their music is weighty and impressive" Big Cheese Magazine (4/5)
"The pure meat and noise produced from these 3 guys are so strong that once they've pierced your head you can almost feel your mind bleed" Gig Reviewer
Recluse release The Quiet Hours on 31 July 2015 through Tiny Revelations Records
Praise for The Quiet Hours already includes:
"I'd give anything for that guitar sound" Adam Walton BBC Radio
"The Quiet Hours is an exciting album for you to immerse yourself with. Highly Recommended" Sludgelord
"The Quiet Hours is a worthy second album to their cause, with layers of scuzzy, growling riffs "occasionally giving way to trippy and more upbeat moments. There is also plenty of thought given to decent melodies, which sets this band apart from some of their gloomier contemporaries" 4* Buzz Magazine
"The vocals know how to be fragile without being neither weak nor whining. In the same way the instruments that know how to be powerful without taking up all the space. Rather, it is the band as a whole that manages to roar together and fill the space it has reserved." Les Immortels
Following on from their highly praised debut studio album Crooked Heart, Recluse have embarked on promoting their new album The Quiet Hours throughout 2015. Progressing from the darkly lyrical "slow burning, chunky, bluesy, riff-fest" (Metal Talk) of their debut album Crooked Heart, Recluse reconvened in the winter of 2014 to record The Quiet Hours with Doom guru Chi Lameo (Spider Kitten) at his own Pentastar Studios. Expanding on their sound, The Quiet Hours is a darker, heavier and more complex album than it's predecessor that more suitably captures the heavy groove of the band's live act.
Recluse have played the local South Wales scene and festivals throughout the UK with a great response to their dynamic and powerful live show. Recluse regularly play alongside the UK's up-and-coming bands such as Henry's Funeral Shoe, Kyshera, Bad Sign and Spider Kitten. Drawing comparisons to Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age and the desert rock scene, the album seamlessly blends the moody, acoustic-driven calmness of songs such as 'Bury Us Separately' with the driving heaviness of tracks such as 'Machine's Way' and 'Soothe'.
Recluse are currently in the planning stages of their UK and European tour, autumn 2015.
Other praise for Recluse includes:
"Recluse Produce a heavy, bass filled sound laced with good, emotive vocals which do the well penned lyrics the justice they deserve" Stereoboard
"Crooked Heart is a slow burning, chunky, bluesy, riff-fest" Metal Talk
"Crooked Heart is a brilliant piece of British Rock!" Room Thirteen
"All 11 tracks of Crooked Heart are pure dynamite" The Bite Magazine
Celebrated American Pro wrestler Tim Donst (CHIKARA / AIW) has begun using the Recluse song Heartjacker (off their debut album Crooked Heart) as his entrance music. “I use Heartjacker as my entrance music because it unselfishly exposes self doubt with self resistance. Blending the pursuit of triumph with heroic acknowledgement of tragedy...” Tim Donst
