After grabbing the attention of the music industry in the UK in 2007, New Generation Superstars continue to work hard with consistency, perseverance and enthusiasm which have gained them accolades worldwide.
Built upon a solid foundation over 5 years, the Nottingham based band has mastered their craft with anthemic choruses, crunching guitar riffs, accompanied by thundering bass lines and drums.
Hailed by rock fans and media critics alike, NGS capture the reason why, in their debut album “Crash Course in Rock n Roll”. Laid down in a record four days, with Grammy Award Nominated Producer Alan Smyth (Arctic Monkeys/Pulp).
The bands' debut album released in September 2007 (Underdog Records Ltd), has seen NGS attracting worldwide attention and glowing reviews, with distribution and sales in the UK and countries such as Japan, Finland, Spain, Italy and the USA. 2009 sees further work with Alan to complete the second album “Raising the stakes”, due for release July 2009.
2007 saw Kerrang! Magazine award a KKKKK live review, and naming them “Serious hope for British rock!’, with further praise following in late 2007. NGS were approached after a worldwide search by Classic Rock Magazine, to feature on the "Sons of Guns 2" cover mount CD, and have continued to be featured in Kerrang in 2008.
Relentless touring with many home grown and international acts over the past 2 years has led to the band jointly playing sold out shows at the Mean Fiddler (London), Underworld (London) and Rock City (Nottingham). A triumphant set at the Rock and Blues Festival (2007) to 2,000 Rock fans in the Cross Pistons Saloon, the Hard Rock Hell Festival (Minehead), the prestigious City Showcase in London and the headline slot on the second stage at The Bulldog Bash (2008) have all brought much deserved attention. Including being hand picked by Bruce Dickinson to be featured on his Radio 6 Rock Show, and to play with Duff McKagan’s Loaded.
With a style that has attracted fans from all walks of life, and tastes in all genres of music, New Generation Superstars are continuously forging a following worldwide, with major hits on official band sites, a strong presence on social networking sites, forums and even unofficial fan pages dedicated to the band.
The band has toured/played alongside the likes of: Duff McKagan's Loaded, The Distillers, Linchpin, Ginger/ The Widlhearts, The 69 Eyes, The Supersuckers Vain, Tokyo Dragons, L.A. Guns, Crystal Pistol, UK Subs Love/Hate, Blaze Bailey, Vice Squad, Wolfsbane.
