Bursting out of South Wales’ hotbed of talent in early 2007, the charismatic quintet Kids in Glass Houses found a large and loyal fanbase almost instantly thanks to their huge songs, tireless work ethic, charming demeanours and stylish aesthetic, with media support to match.
It was frontman, Aled Phillips, who started the band, while still in school in 2004. It would be another two years before the right line up – consisting of guitarists Joel Fisher and Iain Mahanty, bassist Andrew Shay and drummer Phil Jenkins – was found amongst a variety of young bands doing the rounds on the South Wales circuit, but once the quintet were together, there was no stopping them. And after signing to Roadrunner Records, Kids In Glass Houses became an essential part of the UK’s musical landscape.
With multiple successful albums under their belt (Smart Casual, DIRT, In Gold Blood, Peace) and a live reputation envied by many, Kids In Glass Houses proved to be one of British rock’s finest talents. Throughout their career the band headlined stages globally & appeared on line-ups alongside Paramore, Stereophonics, Fall Out Boy & You Me At Six. They graced the covers of multiple magazines, had numerous Radio 1 playlisted singles & TV performances including Children in Need, MTV, & the 2012 Olympics
