The Peppermint Beat Band, a 5 piece band from Brighton who play a soulful blend of pop and psychedelic rock. Since forming at the end of 2009, they have gained a large following through their energetic, charismatic live performances, drawing in crowds wherever they play.
The band released their first single 'Lemon Tree' and their debut 3 track EP in June 2010, which receives great feedback from anyone who listens. Off the back of the EP they have been constantly performing in venues throughout Brighton and London, all the time building on their growing fanbase.
In the winter of 2010 they started recording their second E.P at Cold Room studios in Oxford, which is being mixed and produced by Mark Gardener (former frontman of Ride and Animalhouse). Due for release shortly, the band have completed a hectic year, performing on internet show BalconyTV, supporting one of Mani's (Primal Scream, ex-Stone Roses) legendary DJ sets at the brixton Jamm, a support slot with Nimmo & The Gauntlets, a part in The El Collectivo Arts Festival in Madrid, as well a some amazing festivals all around the county.
Over christmas the chaps will be recording a collection of new songs due for release next year.
