London-based Alt-Rock trio, INK. have released their debut EP, Heaven. The band, founded by Dougie Poynter (formerly of platinum selling UK bands, McFly and McBusted) and Todd Dorigo (former solo artist who has previously played Glastonbury and toured with Carl Barat of The Libertines) and completed by the addition of drummer Corey Alexander, draw influence from a wide range of sources from The Rolling Stones, Nick Cave, The National, and Nirvana to the writings of Alan Ginsberg, Vladimir Nabokov, Leonard Cohen, and Jack Kerouac.

INK. enthuses: “We’ve been busy conjuring up this world in which INK. can exist and now we’re finally ready to throw open the gates and populate it!”.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
