Hailing from London, England, Slaves to Gravity have arrived to send a Tsunami-sized wave of angry, dirty, passionate rock music across the world. Armed with monstrous riffs, huge grooving rhythms and battle-cry melodies, they cut through todays tired rock scene like razor-wire through an artery.

Sick of the watery-eyed nostalgia of the classic rock revival and the macho-misogyny of so much modern metal, Tommy, J and Toshi – formerly of The Ga Ga's – joined forces with Mark V, former guitar supremo with Ariel-X, to drag real rock music kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Drawing from a huge range of influences they combine melody and muscle to devastating effect, creating music that demands to be heard.

“After years of getting ripped-off, fucked over and burnt, we're painfully aware of how naïve a band can sound when they talk about conquering the world…” Says Tommy “… but instead of all this negativity killing us off, it's become our cause. We realize that we're all at the mercy of the forces around us. We're all Slaves To Gravity. It's the admission of our own mortality, if you will, that gives us a unique strength. A realism and honesty you don't often see in bands. It's the ultimate weapon.”

Be sure that in a world so ruthlessly controlled by dollar signs, disposable idols and parasitic executives, STG represent the real alternative. Rock music from the heart, for the soul. A band from the below screaming at the world above, giving voice to the millions who feel cheated by the system they were suckled on. The soundtrack to your revolution.
