The Survival Code
The Survival Code, formed of Gary McGuinness (Lead Vocals and Guitar) and Tom Cook (Vocals and Drums) is an alt-rock band based in London. With influences ranging from Johnny Cash to the Deftones, this successful group have gathered a loyal fanbase as they gigged across the UK and Ireland over the last 4 years headlining some amazing venues and opening for some very talented acts.
The band have become known for their energetic and unforgiving live shows. Nothing is ever left on the stage with this lot!
Lead singer Gary is the project’s driving force and song writer. A classical guitar scholar and skilled drummer originally from Dublin, he drummed in successful alt-rock bands for over a decade before moving to London in 2010 to see if a dent could be made in the UK music scene.
After meeting and collaborating with Tom Cook, a talented drummer and Pete Agnelli (the bands original Bassist), The Survival Code was born. An EP “Everything but today” came in 2013 and was followed with their’ debut album “MMXV” in 2015 through “IRL” – “Strong Debut Album” Rocksound Magazine // “MMXV is a strong debut album, an absolute must for rock music fans” – Rocksins
This year is all about the 3 track EP entitled “Broken Strings” which will feature two lead singles, the first of which is the title track “Broken Strings” due on the 25th of Sept through IRL. The band will be gigging at venues in the UK and Ireland throughout the rest of the year. Dates to be announced via the website and social media, so be sure to check back for new announcements.
