The New Surge

Colt48 is fully cocked and loaded!

London-based two-piece have hit the ground running!


WHO: Colt48


  • Adam Jerome – Vocals, Guitars
  • Matt Savini -Drums, Percussion

WHERE: London, UK


Formed in June 2017 by long-time friends and band mates, Adam Jerome and Matt Savini, the London-based two-piece have hit the ground running! The guys have opened for Puddle of Mudd, Crazy Town, Trapt, and Saliva in recent months, and gained 65k+ views on their debut single, Hate Hate Relationship. They are releasing their self-titled debut EP on November 2nd and will be touring the world heavily in support of the EP next year.

So…take it away, Adam!!

What would you say that your band has to offer that is different from what is out there? 

We’re a high energy band live, for two of us I think you’d be surprised and hard pushed to see a band rocking out harder than us. We also love to write relatable, catchy rock anthems, heavily down-tuned, and as I mentioned before, there’s only two of us.

What would you say is the essence behind your band?

We’re a band forged by friendships, made stronger by going through the same awful experiences, so we write about real experiences, and when we play, it’s all real emotion, so shows can be incredibly cathartic for us.

How do you compete in today’s market?

We bribe everyone. But no, honestly, in order to compete all you can do is play harder and be more driven than anyone else, life is all about hard work and the journey, we just like to rock out, do it as loud and often as possible and work our asses off to get ahead.

Describe your music. What do you want it to convey?

As mentioned before, our music is relatable, emotional, and hopefully what people will judge as ‘real’. Our EP has been mixed by Chris Clancy from Mutiny Within, and assisting him was none other than Colin Richardson (bullet for my valentine, machine head, trivium, etc) who have done a great job of making our record as loud, raw and full on as we are live, so hopefully people will see us as an honest heavy rock band, and that’s just fine by me.

Define some of the goals for the band.

I think next year we want to do some tour supports, we’ve opened for a lot of bands we looked up to growing up so far but to do some full tours of Europe or America with them would be amazing, I think we have a few ideas like that in the pipeline for the end of next year but we shall see.

Anything else you would like to add?

Our EP is coming out on 2nd November, digitally, worldwide, for free via Spotify, Amazon, Deezer, Apple Music and our Bandcamp page, so please go grab it and share it about to as many people as possible. If you want an actual copy of the EP, come to our show in Camden at the Black Heart on the 2nd, this is the ONLY place you can get physical copies.
