Bob Peach and Joe Bartnicki, formed Tokyo Storm in 2014 with a shared passion for music, the duo set out to rekindle their writing skills and create a sound that would pay homage to the music they grew up with.
The result of their collaboration was their debut album, "Optimistic State of Mind," which was released in 2020. With their unique brand of melodic, driving rock, Tokyo Storm quickly gained a dedicated
following, however, the band was not content to rest on their laurels and continued to evolve.
In their quest to progress their music to the next level, they brought in Jason Edwards on bass guitar. Jason is a creative and technically skilled bassist who added a new level of depth to their sound. In addition to Jason, the band also welcomed a new vocalist and frontman, Darren Collings. With his powerful voice and slick yet sharp stage presence, Darren has brought energy warmth and a new edge to the band.
The band are now putting the finishing touches to their next album "Alien Radio Station." This album showcases the band's musical growth and versatility and is a testament to their hard work and dedication. With driving rock riffs, soaring solos, and powerful vocals, this album is poised to be their breakout release.
The band will release their new album early in quarter two, 2024 and then promote by touring in the UK, Europe, and beyond.
Live Dates for 2024 to be announced
