A West Norfolk band is currently recording their new album in the same studios as Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Elton John after they were snapped up by a multi-platinum producer.

Last year’s joint winners of KLFM’s Battle of the Bands competition, The Brink, sent out copies of their album out to industry experts in the hope of being taken on.

The group were speechless when they received a call from multi-platinum producer, Dito Godwin, who has worked with the likes of KISS, Motley Crue and No Doubt, who said he spotted great potential in the album. He booked a flight to England and began work with the group straight away at Sensible Studios.

Gary Connor, bassist, said: “We are extremely excited about this project and working with Dito has been incredible.

“We would like to thank our fans for their continued support and we hope to make our very strong music scene back home proud.”

With Jon Moon, who has worked with Brian May, Ke$ha, Florence and the Machine, Bullet for my Valentine and Stevie Wonder among other greats, engineering the album the buzz around The Brink is building.

Later this month, Canadian film-maker Martin Julian, who has worked on music videos for Roger Clown, Brighton Rock, Alex Pangman and Kirk Elliot, will be flying out to shoot The Brink’s first music video from the album.

Influenced by great bands of both past and present, The Brink boys, vocalist Tom Quick, lead guitarist Alex Bittles, bass guitarist Gary Connor, second guitarist Joey King and drummer Dave Forster bring new life and energy to the table of today’s rock scene.

Weaving delicate harmonies, both vocal and instrumental, together with hard driven rock riffs, they have created a fresh style of their own, enticing fans from all backgrounds with their showmanship. Fuelled by great influences, they create fist pumping anthems and solid rock ballads. Producing a fresh young look, a live performance filled with excitement and vivacity, and a song writing ability befitting early Def Leppard and Bon Jovi.

The band play The Maids Head in Lynn on March 1.
