“By taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid, Sonic Boom Six demand attention.” – Kerrang!

SONIC BOOM SIX is an explosive and outspoken five-piece described as “taking ska, pop, grime, dubstep, punk and metal apart, then rebuilding them as a hyperactive hybrid” (Kerrang! Magazine). With a live show infamous for “clashing activism and good times”, SB6’s legendary gigs are a party that started in Manchester, UK, with an open-door policy towards all races, genders, ages and orientations. The Boom’s influences include The Specials, The Streets, The Clash and The Fugees, and the band signed with Cherry Red Records in early 2016 to release The F-Bomb in May 2016, following up with the Cardiac Address mini-album in June 2017.

Having toured the UK, Europe, the US, and Japan constantly for the last decade and a half (while also managing to release three albums on their own label Rebel Alliance Recordings), the band has performed headline tours of Europe, America and Japan as well as slots at festivals including Glastonbury, Download, Sonisphere, Boomtown, the main stage at Reading and Leeds Festival and the whole of the Vans Warped Tour 2017 in the USA.

Sonic Boom Six has released 5 studio albums and three full-length compilations with countless singles, EPs and compilation appearances. Sonic Boom Six has written and performed songs that have appeared on BBC Radio 1, Channel 4, BBC 2 (TV), Rock Band and Sims 3 video games and more.

“Progression and change have always been key in the band’s career and it’s clear they are far from ever going stale…” Punktastic.com
