Tim Everington, lead guitar in Sinners Highway.
How did you get started?
We set up together in 2011 and have been gigging around the UK ever since. We are currently demoing and in the pre-production stage of new material for an end of year release.
What’s it like to make it to the final eight of the Red Bull Studios competition?
Absolutely amazing! It’s a dream come true for all of us to play at a festival that we’ve been to as fans; last year me and Simon (vocals) got to stand on the main stage and look out to the crowd – this year we get to play to them! We are so thankful for the support we have received throughout the competition.
Have you got any surprises in store for you Download set?
Brand new, unheard tracks and tons of energy and fun! The rest you’ll have to come and check out for yourself!
Who are you most looking forward to seeing play at Download?
Bring me the horizon; their newest album (Sempiternal) has been a huge inspiration and I’ve never seen them live! But let’s not forget Aerosmith!
What’s your best festival memory either personally attending as a fan or in the band? And what’s your advice to all the festival goers?
Crowd surfing in the rain to Rage Against the Machine at Leeds 2008. People should check out as many bands as possible – support unsigned music and don’t forget to go crazy and get involved!
This is your chance to have your say to make people come see your set at Download.
