Welcome to the Boneyard:
“One of the UK’s hottest nu-metal influenced bands”
“GPs need to prescribe this to everyone”
Following the new lease of life provided by its recent airplay on BBC Introducing Rock with Alyx Holcombe, 996 (Nine Ninety-Six) Artists are delighted to re-present ‘Final Round’, the latest in a line of anthemic singles from Neptune Rain.
Testament to the Cheltenham quintet’s innovation, drive and sheer determination, Neptune Rain have gone from strength to strength since launching to the online world in April 2020.
A series of lockdown covers, gameshows and livestreams not only led to BBC Gloucestershire giving debut single ‘If That Was Love’ their first ever airplay, but the release of EP ‘Chaos & Light’ culminated in an invitation to perform at BBC Airwaves festival alongside Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and Manic Street Preachers.
The band then ended 2021 in supreme style with their debut on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, in addition to regular airplay on numerous platforms including Total Rock and ERB Radio.
Taking their name from the theory that it can rain diamonds on our solar system’s most distant planet, Neptune Rain see this as a fitting metaphor for their belief that hope can be found, even in the darkest of times.
This message is epitomised by the band’s focus on positive mental health, with fundraising for mental health charity Young Minds a key focus at live shows.
Powerful single ‘Final Round’ continues with that theme as it documents vocalist Kieran Ayres’ ongoing experiences with depression.
With the tunesmiths now thriving off the back of their high-octane live performances around the country, Neptune Rain will continue bringing their ‘metal-meets-pop’ sound to the masses.
With work under way on EP 2, Neptune Rain have shown that they have the quality and mainstream appeal to be one of the UK’s next breakthrough bands.
