Originally the solo project of Peter Field, formerly of Stoke-based Punk bands Senseless and Ambassadors of Shalom, Peter118 stormed onto the scene with the release Make It Or Break It EP in 2014, when Field was joined by his wife Janine on bass and backing vocals, and friend Sam on drums to form fully fledged three-piece punk outfit.
2016’s Need You More EP marked a pivotal point in Peter118’s career when they won the support of legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer in LA who championed the lead single. The accompanying music video was also playlisted by JUCEtv and BlankTV.
After adding rhythm guitarist Alisha Palmer, the band looks set to further their reach during 2018 with the band confirmed for a UK tour in October and November 2017, and a return to the Rainbow Rock festival in Stockholm, Sweden.
Peter met fellow punk band No Lost Cause over in Nashville last year as they played on the same bill at a show. They got on so well that night that a friendship blossomed and they’ve gone into this split EP release together as a result.
This is a track that does not pause for breath but shoots along at a million miles an hour. With definite punk influences, the drums and bass create a wall of sound, with fuzz and distortion whilst the vocals cry out “We’re wasting this time to fight, we’re wasting this time to save my life”. Rather than sounding angry this short track has an upbeat feel.
