In Crowded Skies are an unsigned rock band based in Kent, England consisting of Pete Herbert (vocals / bass), Shaun Taylor (guitar), Luke Martin (guitar) and Matt Downes (drums). The band formed in 2013 after their previous bands’ adventures came to an end, the highlights of which were playing the Download and Sonisphere festivals and supporting acts such as Madina Lake, We Are The Ocean, Mayday Parade and Cancer Bats.
Driven by a passion for music and influenced by bands such as Coheed And Cambria & Circa Survive, In Crowded Skies draw from a range of genres to create music that can be loosely described as catchy alt-rock with an interestingly progressive edge.
In Crowded Skies have spread their wings and played shows in London and Southampton in addition to higher profile Kent slots, and are currently booking a UK tour to support the release of their 2nd EP Everything Comes To Light on August 8 a true progression and refinement of their sound – undeniably darker music that has still retained the same catchy vocal hooks and musical intricacies. In Crowded Skies released their first music video – filmed by DarkNorth Media – for the upcoming single “You Were Right”.
