Rising Cambridgeshire-based rock band, Phoenix Calling, have released their latest single and video which features Chatteris boxing legend Dave ‘Boy’ Green.
The band, which includes guitarist and backing vocalist Dom Greenwood and lead vocalist Steve Chapman, from Chatteris, also feature title-chasing boxer Tommy Martin, from St Neots, in their video.
Tommy has a Commonwealth title fight on Saturday. The video will be widely shown on music TV channels including Kerrang! TV and the fight itself will be screened live on Sky Sports.
The single, ‘Hold On To Glory’, has already received massive airplay around the globe and is from the highly-acclaimed debut album ‘Forget Your Ghosts’.
Phoenix Calling, who also comprise lead guitarist Martyn Hilliam from Whittlesey, bass player Jason Howard from Ramsey and drummer Matt Cope from St Neots, have been together for two years.
They were signed to The Fort record label just over a year ago and have had a phenomenal 12 months, releasing their debut album and enjoying sell-out gigs for the launch tour, including at the O2 Academy in Birmingham.
All three of their previous singles have received worldwide airplay and the videos were all playlisted on Kerrang! and Scuzz TV. They supported Young Guns and Nothing But Thieves, played music festivals and gigs and even squeezed in a tour of Poland.
Of the new release, songwriter Dom said: “This is a really special video for us – we were absolutely delighted that Dave ‘Boy’ Green and Tommy Martin were so enthusiastic about being involved.
“Dave is a local sporting icon and an incredibly genuine guy. Tommy was awesome to see in training and we’d like to wish him all the best for his title fight on Saturday.”
Their second album is scheduled for release in the autumn.
