Originally formed in 2006 HOOK consists of John Hook, Rob Hook and Marc Hook who together write and record original only songs. After getting lots of USA airplay in 2009, John says "We decided to look at performing our songs live around our local area, Norwich, just to see what kind of response we got. Our first gig was in 2019 and then Covid came and, like many other bands out there, our musical future and our live gigging was held up."
"Not letting that stop us though we got busy during the lock-down and started writing for our first studio album, Sanantorium, which was recorded between lockdowns, so we were kept very busy!"
All instruments on Sanatorium were played by John, Marc and Rob, with a drum machine due to restrictions and produced and engineered by Roaul Crane at Blaze studios in Caister Norfolk.
"Now the madness - excuse the Sanitorium reference - has passed we are looking at moving ahead full steam and have a new album, Breakout due for release very soon with a full band line up playing on the whole album, so a very different sound and feel is here this time around."
HOOK are: Rob Hook, Vocals - Marc Hook, Guitars - John Hook, Keyboards - Mick Grant, Bass & Damion Dogget, Drums for the recording of Breakout.
The band offer a rare mix with their music drawing on all of their musical influences from Rock/Metal, 80's music, 70's Punk to a mix of Glam & Electronica! It's safe to say they have all their bases covered and we are sure you will love them!
