Artist of the week - Scarlet Rebels
Melodic hard rock band Scarlet Rebels were formed from the foundations of rock band V0iD.
The band have released three official albums under the name of V0iD – Ballads For Beauties And Beasts (2009), Zer0 (2010) and Keep Fighting (2015).
In 2018, singer-songwriter Wayne Doyle, energetic and powerhouse drummer Gary Doyle and harmonic, rhythmic bassist Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde we’re joined by blistering lead guitarist Chris Jones and on second guitar/keyboards, Josh Townshend, who has rock royalty flowing through his veins, being the son of The Who guitarist Simon Townshend and the nephew of rock icon Pete Townshend.
And with the re-energised and re-imagined line-up came a new name – SCARLET REBELS
Scarlet Rebels are:
Wayne Doyle (vocals/guitar)
Chris Jones (lead guitar)
Josh Townshend (guitar)
Wayne ‘Pricey’ Esmonde (bass)
Gary Doyle (drums)
We really like this brooding yet punchy, confident new one from Welsh melodic rockers Scarlet Rebels. No One Else To Blame will appeal to rock enthusiasts and more mainstream passers-by.

A truly outstanding release – 10/10
Geoff Wootton, Powerplay Magazine
‘Show Your Colours’ is quite possibly the most impressive new rock album of 2019 – 5/5
Album of the month
Guy Bellamy, Great Music Stories
Scarlet Rebels manage that most seductive of combinations… hard-as-nails guitar chops and the kind of soaring, alt-infused choruses that instantly places them in a contemporary light.
