The Skinny: By experimenting with various elements from all eras of pop punk, the South Walien band Man Of The Hour have succeeded in creating their own twist and unique spot in this growing genre. As their infectious tunes slowly appear on airwaves transmitted by BBC Radio 1, Nation Radio and Amazing Radio to name a few, the band’s guitar rhythms and addictive melodies are making their ways all over the world.

Together since 2008, Man Of The Hour have had an action-packed career thus far. They achieved success before even playing one concert and within a year would go on to gig all over Wales. Former vocalist Kevin Barnes would exit the group in mid-2009 which prompted Richard to pick up vocal duties before they returned to the studio to record the track “Shatter”. More line-up changes ensued, but the guys have endured and the end result is tight-knit group hungry for more new music and international success.
