NUMB released their self-titled debut album on 1st September via Attic Records
This fierce, hard driving rocker throws up fabulous tunes track after track, showcasing twists, grooves and surprises galore and the end result is a truly stunning album, made even more so by the fact this is their debut offering. An extremely exciting future awaits this formidable quartet.
«It’s certainly a sound that would go down a storm on current US rock radio, thanks in no small part to vocalist Lee Rayner whose range is up there with the likes of Shinedown's Brent Smith. Tracks such as 'Time' see him more than able to pump out an impressive arsenal of notes and harmonies.....It's an i...nteresting juggling act that could see Numb appeal to punk, metal and rock fans alike...»
“The tracks are entirely original and have their own distinct sound .........the stand out tracks for me on this album are ‘Common Love‘ and ‘Burn‘. As debut albums go this is among my favourites, I expect big things from this band and can’t wait until I get the opportunity to see them on tour”
Broken Arrow Magazine
«The self-titled introduction offers up eight slices of rousing multi-flavoured rock littered with imagination spearing hooks and ear thrilling grooves. The band is also no lightweight in casting fiery seductive melodies and a rhythmic incitement which has feet and hips as submissive as the senses to the combined temptation........There are numerous times when as a reviewer you feel really blessed to have the opportunity to cover new music and there are other times when you feel truly honoured; this is one of the latter moments»
«Common Love, hits into its full-throttle pace taking absolutely no prisoners. Seriously, if you're listening to this whilst driving — watch your speedometer! This band does exactly what it says on the tin. With vocals reminiscent of Queens Of The Stone Age, head thrashing beats and sexy solos — it's a winning combination»

“NUMB’s self-titled debut album is a solid rocker that burns from beginning to end. Their sound is unique, combining elements of hard rock, metal, groove, punk, and even some country twang in the form of Lee Rayner’s vocals. The music is riff after riff and runs the gauntlet to a more modern hard rock to southern friend metal”
NUMB released their first track 'Common Love', a cracking rock track taken from their self-titled debut album which was released on 1st September via Attic Records.

Established in 2015, a rekindled long term musical collaboration between guitarist songwriter Darren Caven-Quantrill and multi-instrumentalist composer Barney Byron (The Calling, Audioeinstein) joined forces with unknown but talented lyricist and vocalist Lee Rayner.
An album’s worth of original material was rapidly composed with the fresh writing partnership says Rayner, “Darren and me just clicked and we immediately knew we had a unique sound, some might hear the Randy Rhoads/Osbourne esque guitars? Some may hear our combined appreciation of bands like System of a Down? Others possibly the punk edge of the Dead Kennedys? The angst of Rage against the Machine? or even the neo classical Muse edge?”
The band was soon joined by drummer Damo Falkowski (Deadeye) whose technical and powerful style yielded the modern edge that defines Numb’s resonance.
Excited as they were with the new sounds they were laying down, Numb never anticipated the buzz and enthusiasm they received from the first string of gigs locally “it gave us the real desire to take the time to perfect our unique sound – we took the old industry route! Demoed the entire album first, taking our time and this allowed us to craft an album which not only met our expectations musically but we now honestly feel deserves to be exposed and out there” says Caven-Quantrill.
“The songs are semi-autobiographical” remarks Rayner “they are extremely personal — this is Real Life Rock"
Following the release of the debut recording, Damo sadly decided he had taken his journey with numb as far as he wanted to amicably stepping aside and handing all drumming duties over to the extremely talented James Redden (Cerebral Scar)
Numb’s eagerly anticipated debut is out now on Attic Records
Numb are: Lee Rayner (Vocals), Darren Caven-Quantrill (Guitars), Barney Byron (Bass) and James Redden (Drums)
