The Bath-based blues brothers are classic British rock band, taking influence from the country’s historic lineage of stellar acts from the 60s to the present day. Their incendiary live performances have seen them share stage with the likes of The Rolling Stones, as well as touring with Miles Kane and Jake Bugg. Blood truly is thicker than water with The Family Rain. The band have an understanding and connection with one another that most bands could only dream of and still share the same room in Bath in the house they grew up in, constantly writing and perfecting their craft.
Under The Volcano was recorded at Hansa Studios, Berlin, with producer Jim Abbiss, who’s previous credits include work with the likes of Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys and Bombay Bicycle Club. The album features previous singles ‘Feel Better (FRANK)’, ‘Reason To Die’ and ‘Pushing It’. The Family Rain also recently premiered the video for their incredible track ‘Trust Me… I’m A Genius’.
