Horsham Band Cloud set to play Download Festival

Remember Horsham Battle of the Band 1997 winners Cloud?
In August 2003, Horsham based band Cloud played their last show at the Kings Head in Fulham hung up their instruments and went their separate ways.
Fifteen years later, the band reformed for a one off show in Brighton which (to the surprise of Matthew & G the two original members still playing in Cloud) sold out: “It was all flung together quite hastily and we didn’t really leave ourselves much time to put together a 2hr show, considering at the time of discussion regarding a reunion our original drummer was unavailable so a frantic search for a replacement ensued explains G.”  The band was, however, fortunate enough to land local drummer Seb Philp who had in previous bands been the opening act for Cloud.
After the Brighton show, the band decided to play a few more shows and start recording new material for a possible E.P release. Cloud’s first
single “Burn it Down” will be released on the 14 February on all major platforms.
Now secured to London based management, Cloud are looking forward to a busy year with the band now playing bigger shows opening for The Fun Lovin Criminals and, of course, playing the massive Rock festival Download.
Cloud can be seen in February:
Sat 23 Feb Brighton Electric (Horsham band Solice supporting);
Sun 24 Feb Brighton Tattoo Convention, Brighton Centre 5pm.
