For well over a year now, Star Scream have been shaking the boundaries of music.
Prior to Star Scream, Adam played in The Candys, a popular Sussex band, The highlight of his time with The Candys was a tour of New York, where they played with both Electric 6 and The D4, which was a very successful tour.
Meanwhile, whilst The Candys had been successfully playing gigs in the south and mainly London and New York, Adam during the day had met Aoife whilst they were both attending Lewes Music Academy, they instantly decided that they gelled inextricably and so their musical future together was born. Little did they know what an amazing future that would be!
Adam & Aoife initially outlined their influences as being: - The Manic Street Preachers, The Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, Jane's Addiction, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Batman (animated) and Bingo. But this is forever changing and the band take influence from anything they can. Adam incorporates every musical style and always strives to write in different and experimental ways.
With Adam's unique flair for song writing, Aoife's probing lyrical contributions and many late night rehearsals, they soon felt it time to share Star Scream with whoever was prepared to listen. Once they began to perform, the need for a third member to drum became apparent.
It was after a very successful London gig, that Dom walked into the unusual world of Star Scream. His personality, experience and passion made Adam and Aoife’s choice very easy and the band was complete. Star Scream have now played to well over 60 audiences, entertaining from Brighton to Bristol, from Leicester to London and many other places along the way. Performing alongside such bands as Halo, Rachel Stamp, Ariel-X, The Meteors, Johnny Panic and Serafin.
This hasn’t gone unnoticed. Star Scream’s songs have gained the position of “Single of the Month” on heathenangel.com, and have been voted “Number 1 Song of the Month” by users of thewhitelabel.com, which enabled them to play at thewhitelabel’s showcase night of the best unsigned talent at the Concorde 2, in Brighton.
Star Scream have also been hand picked by Casey Chaos to support Amen on their upcoming tour, and were also chosen to support classic 90’s Britpop band Space. They have gained the title of winner of the Hastings Battle of the Bands and successfully made it through to the finals of the Purple Turtle’s (Camden) Battle of the Bands.
Most recently Star Scream have been chosen from over 700 bands to play at this year’s TMF Rock Festival, the largest event of it’s kind (over 10,000 capacity) which showcases the artists at the front line of their music scene – “the bands and DJs truly making noise in the UK”.
Their success has also been noted in the media, with smashing internet reviews, and printed reviews in Brighton’s ‘Badger’, plus various local press reviews, listings in Time Out, Radio slots and undoubtedly much more with their completed music video on its way.
Star Scream are facing a glowing future. With an excellent EP and a single ready to be released, they are still at the start of their journey.
Star Scream are still writing and recording but are fanatical about performing and are striving to play at any opportunity.

i've been lucky enough to see them live and thought they were excellent... stage prescence, great live sound, great musicianship and some interesting songs
i've downloaded and listened to a few tracks and domino stands out for me.... cracking big muse/pumpkins riff... lots of dynamics some shouty bits and some musey type falsetto vocals over an arty chord pattern.... nice
