Live Titans Ronin are a well established touring band. Infusing energy and fun into seamless handcrafted live shows they rapport and unite every crowd into comrades-in-sound. Sing along Rock that demands to be heard.

Forged in 2011, Kit, Loz & Jake (aged 23-25) converged to create the musical maelstrom of Ronin; quickly releasing their 6 track debut EP Hybris to popular acclaim, they followed this with relentless gigging, writing, and rehearsing; they covered the miles, polished the show and honed their intent. 2015 saw the addition of bassist Carl, whose riff addiction and penchant for weird signatures brought a magnetic new texture to their already diverse sound.

Songs from Hybris still stand out; with lead single ‘Fly Away’ being featured on a few episodes of Jamie Oliver’s ‘Food Tube’, It’s follow up Limerence – launched in late 2013 – quickly became a fan favourite and showcased an edgier, more defined sound. Featuring singles: ‘The Bearer’ – released with a kinetic typography video – and ‘Trespasser’ – with its own striking and ambitious music video – and the captivating and tragic ‘Mimi Woolfe’ – whose video featured footage from the E.P’s month long release tour, the EP’s additional tracks are ‘Hard Lines’, the euphoric hymn for unity ‘Serenity’, the honest and emotional ‘Always in my Heart’, and the powerful insight into madness that is ‘Mirrors.’

In 2015 the band released ‘In The Beginning’ the first single off their as-yet unreleased new E.P, It, along with the rest of their back catalogue are available on iTunes, and have been consistently achieving FM radio play.

These songs join new, as-yet unreleased tunes in set lists alongside the bands stable of unusual cover songs, including: Destiny’s Child’s ‘Survivor’, and Fleetwood Mac’s ‘The Chain’ – learned especially for their repeat performances at the F1 – some of these covers can be found alongside the bands music videos on their Youtube page.

Ronin have shared the stage with rock royalty; they’ve played with musical icons ‘The Blockheads’, 80′s stadium fillers ‘Then Jerico’, ‘Rainbow’s Graham Bonnet, and the band have also played to a sold out 02 Academy 2 with the Jackass and Viva La Bam star Bam Margera (as F**kface Unstoppable).

In 2014 they were invited to perform at Silverstone for the Great British F1 and after several headline UK tours took Europe by storm as support on ‘The Shadow Garden’ winter tour for legends ‘Magnum.’

In 2015 Ronin were invited to return to the F1 and accepted with great aplomb.

Ronin prove a draw for industry types too, with a fistful of endorsements, Jake Howarth signature sticks and a Kit Kinrade signature guitar in the works, a deal with Speegra Publishing and managed by Sun & Stars, a record deal will be their next big step and Ronin are ready.

Now part way through 2016, and festival season drawing to a close; the band have two singles recorded and ready to drop, with video’s on the way. The next 6 months should see them record and release a sound defining E.P. and doing what they do best, hitting the road.
