Space Elevator self titled debut LP out – March 2014 – Space Elevator Records

Space Elevator band shotReleased through their own label, the debut album from Space Elevator (and debut single ‘Elevator’) is the work of a classic rock 5 piece comprising a collection of bona fide rock veterans. With credits including West End shows ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘Rock of Ages’, not to mention stints playing alongside the likes of The Who, Black Sabbath and Whitesnake, this is a group who know how to rock, and it comes across in their songwriting.

Chock full of tight riffs, distorted guitar and pounding drums that manage to stay the commercial side of heavy, this is music that recalls the glamorous days of 70s and 80s rock, when AC DC, Freddie Mercury and their ilk were putting out a range of ballsy, melodic tunes that had edge. Similarly, Space Elevator are a band who are trying to do something that no other mainstream band are trying to do at the moment. Namely, make big, melodic rock commercially successful again.

Often forgotten in the post-Nirvana era of grunge and indie, this is a genre which remains solidly entertaining – check out the single ‘Elevator’:
