Formed in early 2019, The Addiction are one of the hottest most energetic and up and coming rock n’ roll bands in the UK right now.
Their sound is influenced by stadium and arena style rock bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Black Sabbath, Queen, Kiss, Mötley Crüe plus many more.
The Addiction quickly picked up national traction after they embarked on their debut tour of the UK in early May, supporting the legendary Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, The Dead Daisies) on his Viva La Rock World Tour.
Since the tour with Marco Mendoza, the band have gone on to share stages with artists such as Skid Row, The Quireboys, Crashdiet, Grand Slam and more.
On July 31 2019, The Addiction released their debut single My Sweet Valentine, to large critical acclaim. Their second release came on 01 December 2019, Cut the Wire, which reached #1 in the Amazon Music charts.
– ‘If you can, catch the boys live if you like your rock music full on with lots of guitar and a singer who can wail as you will not be disappointed’ – Moshville Times.
– ‘Go see this band 10/10 rating from Real Time Live …. Professional, easy to work with, and an absolutely top notch performance supporting Marco Mendoza’ – Niki Stephenson, Real Time Live.
– ‘The four-piece turn in a solid set of hard rock with shades of Buckcherry. It’s their first gig in Scotland and they quickly get the crowd onside a well-received cover of Kiss’ Love Gun. Frontman Adam Methven projects confidence centre stage and has a voice reminiscent of Alter Bridge’s Myles Kennedy’ – Rock & Roll Traffic (Live show review)
