Great Britain’s Counterfeit Storm The U.S.

U.K.-based punk rockers, COUNTERFEIT. have made a name for themselves across the
pond and are ready to conquer North America. Kerrang! has called the band “the real deal”
and V Magazine called their album, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER, “a fast paced, punk
inspired riotous debut.”
Lead vocalist / actor Jamie Campbell Bower’s (Twilight, Harry Potter) larger-than-life
presence adds tremendous energy and edge to the band’s hard-hitting live shows. Jamie’s
brother, Sam Bower, is a guitarist in the band, along with Tristan Marmont. Rounding out
the lineup are Roland Johnson on bass and Jimmy Craig on drums. The band’s latest
album, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER, is out now via Xtra Mile Recordings.

The latest single from TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER, entitled “You Can’t Rely,”
has recently been added to Spotify’s coveted ROCK
HARD playlist and the band has caught the interest of programmers at SIRIUS/XM Radio in
these early days for the band in this market. The band is coming to repay the love they
have been getting from fans by touring North America as a headline act for the first time!
“We are stoked to announce that we’ll be bringing the madness and mayhem that is
Counterfeit. to North America for our first headline tour in April and May. We are taking no
prisoners… this is bound to be wild, to say the least, and we’re pumped to get out and
thrash. We’ll see you down the front or in the pit,” says Sam.
In addition to headlining dates, COUNTERFEIT. will be playing the rock festivals –
CAROLINA REBELLION on 5/4 and NORTHERN INVASION on 5/12. Festival organizers –
Danny Wimmer Presents – are excited about the association. DWP’s Gary Spivack says of
the band “We can’t wait for Counterfeit to hit American soil this year. Our festivals will be
that much better with them on the bill. Bring it!”
