THE KEEN-EARED AMONG YOU WILL HAVE BEEN AWARE OF CELESTIAL TRANSMISSIONS FROM THE DEPTHS OF SPACE WHICH SEEM TO SUGGEST THE COMING OF A BAND AND TRUE ENOUGH THAT BAND HAS ARRIVED.
INVADERBAND IS SOMETHING OF A NORTHERN IRELAND SUPERGROUP LED BY SONGWRITER ADAM LEONARD WHO IS FLANKED BY CHRIS McCONAGHY ON GUITAR AND GAVIN McCARTNEY ON BASS WITH RION McCARTNEY KEEPING TIME WITH MOTORIK AND METRONOMIC BEATS BEHIND.
"Invaderband's idiosyncratic brand of garage-laced artrock betrays the hallmarks of a band content in doing things their way without neglecting the power of the hook. Nowhere is that more self-evident than on their forthcoming single ‘Ship of Nothing’, an impossibly earworming three minutes that simultaneously rollicks and lulls via chopping guitar chords, handclaps, seagull samples and organ lines in confident, mercurial synchronicity" - The Thin Air
“Sly and cunning with a great hook. I really like this…” – Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
“Everybody in this band has pedigree. There’s vibes of Wire and The Fall and I’d recommend checking them out” – Across The Line, BBC Radio Ulster
"Bottom Line: The songs are amazing. Get them into your life as fast as you can" – Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Foyle
“Like Swell Maps and your other favourite band. Very good” – Michael Bradley, BBC Radio Ulster
“Keep an eye out for the debut release from Invaderband, Leonard’s new quartet. It’s pretty flash” – The Active Listener
"Unique. We definitely don't hear enough live Artrock / Garagerock / Krautrock in the Northwest" - Bluestack Records
“On an aural axis that freewheels between Roxy Music and Magazine albeit as though headed up by a proto dystopian electro punk’d John Foxx. Slickly drilled post-punk” – Mark Barton, The Sunday Experience
