The band comment: "Skies is a love-letter to the one that got away. That one person that can change your mood with a smile. They say that it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, but we think whoever coined that phrase was just lucky enough to have never experienced heartbreak to it’s cruellest limit."
Peterborough alt-punk quartet Call to the Faithful have been winning over fans with their electrifying live shows and passionate performances across the UK. The band was born out of a burning desire to shake things up and inspire a new generation of the disillusioned to fight for what they believe in.
With influences that range from nu-metal to punk, the band refuse to be pigeonholed. Their music is a raw, unapologetic expression of the frustration, anger and passion inspired by the modern age. Whether they're delivering blistering guitar riffs or spitting acerbic vocal hooks, this band makes their presence felt.
But Call to the Faithful are more than just a band; they're a movement. They're a voice for a generation that refuses to be silenced or marginalised. Their music is both anthemic and introspective, exploring themes of resilience, perseverance, and hope in the face of adversity. It speaks to the struggles and triumphs of young people today, whether it's the fight for social justice, the battle against mental illness, or the search for meaning in a world that often seems cruel and senseless.
Drawing influences from Turnstile, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and Kid Kapichi, the quartet have positioned themselves firmly on the UK live circuit, supporting the likes of Press Club, Kill The Lights, Brave Liaison, Polar and Glitchers, as well as completing their own headline tour to promote the EP in September 2023, with Summer appearances at Lume Fest London (alongside Dream State & Lake Malice), Breaking Bands Festival and Willow Fest Peterborough already under their belt.
