PLANET ROCK MAKE PISTON THEIR "ONES TO WATCH".
"The 54th band stepping into the limelight in our Ones To Watch feature are Midlands rock juggernauts Piston.
Hailing from sunny Cannock in Staffordshire, some Planet Rock listeners are no doubt well acquainted with the beguiling sounds of Piston by now. The five-piece’s rip-roaring single 'Leave If You Dare' picked up regular spins on our airwaves more than half-a-decade ago and then last month, Piston returned to the fore all guns blazing with their Romesh Dodangoda (Motörhead, Bring Me The Horizon, Phil Campbell & The Bastard Sons) produced single ‘One More Day’.
A searing, instantly infectious anthem, 'One More Day’ is custom-built to consume vast venues and, as well as landing a hefty musical punch, it’s packed with weighty and thought-provoking lyrics too. As vocalist Rob Angelico explains: “One More Day is about learning to trust in the natural progression of life. We can't turn back time here, we can only progress and move forward. We always have another day to find the light.”
