Manchester’s SONIC BOOM SIX can now unveil their brilliant new video for single ‘Keep On Believing’ which is released on 11th February through Xtra Mile Recordings. Hot on the heels of the World Darts Championship 2013, the video depicts the band hoping to save a pub from closure by winning the local darts tournament! To help them on their way they enlist the help of Bulleye’s Jim Bowen. But will they succeed?

In line with the tour, Sonic Boom Six has set up a very special competition where fans can win an Orange Crush PiX 12L Amplifier signed by the band, a pair of tickets to a show of their choosing and a meet and greet with the band and an EA Games Sims3 + Showtime Expansion Pack for PC. To enter go here:


Tracklisting for ‘Keep On Believing’ is as follow:

  1. Keep On Believing (Single Mix)
  2. Let’s Push Things Forward
  3. Keep On Believing (Capitol 1212 remix)


The single is taken from Sonic Boom Six’s brilliant new self-titled album. Laila K, vocalist and front woman from SB6 on the new single; “Personally this is my favourite song off the album as it reminds me of when I got into music and bands and how passionate and positive music can make you feel.”


The new self-titled album was produced and mixed by Peter Miles (Futures, We Are The Ocean, The King Blues), and massively built on the band’s previous reputation for progressive, genre-hopping punk rock, by adding contemporary electronica, crushing rock riffs, huge vocal hooks and anthemic song-writing to the mix. It’s a HUGE step forward in every aspect for the band, and one that will rightfully establish them as one of the most exciting new/old prospects in the UK.


Late last year the band announced a run of UK headline shows for next February 2013, with support from The LaFontaines and Under The Influence, which follows their main support slot through January with The Blackout. ALL dates for all shows and tours below:
