Brighton based The RPMs are Jack Valero (lead vocals & rhythm guitar), Miguel Cosme (bass & backing vocals) and Callum James (drums). A rock band not afraid of a good pop tune – they are in- spired by the likes of Tom Petty, The La’s, Arctic Monkeys and The Who, but with a little something all their own.
Their track ‘Down That Road Again’ - produced by Tristan Ivemy featured on 2015’s Xtra Mile High Club – an annual label compilation showcasing music from roster favourites plus newer acts. It was promptly picked up by 6Music’s Tom Robinson for his Mixtape show and BBC Introducing South as Track of the Day.
The band teamed up with Tristan once again to record the four tracks set to make their debut EP – due for release by Xtra Mile Recordings on 24th June 2016.
Following a recent run of dates supporting The Beat, The RPMs will tour the country and beyond throughout 2016. Continuing to win over audiences, as they've done already at Glastonbury, Brighton's The Great Escape, opening XMR's summer party at The Monarch in July 2015 and supporting Wolf Alice and Rudimental at Pilton Party at the behest of The Godfarmer himself, Michael Eavis.
