“After forming in April 2010, “The Illustrated” quickly built up an original repertoire and began gigging around Central Scotland with their take on Alternative/Indie-Rock Music. The bands Demo EP titled; “Up’s and Downs in Small Time Towns” was released in December 2010 and it has been a springboard to their growing fan base.
Having recently won a competition seeking local talent in Edinburgh, they performed on the main stage at Leith Festival, to large crowd, which grew as they played. Having airplay of their Demo EP on Leith FM, as well as a live acoustic set too, has increased their notability and popularity around Central Scotland.
“The Illustrated” are perhaps best known for their incredible live performances. They play onstage with a close connection and vibrant energy - both tight and entertaining. This is born from a love of simply doing what they do, which is seen easily by anyone watching.
They are in the process of writing and recording their new anticipated EP. This will light the way towards a momentous EP Tour Launch around Scotland, and more acclaim to the band and their distinctive, appealing sound. These big plans will lead to even bigger achievements - impressive for a band which have been together such a short space of time.”
