Colour of Noise are a Brighton-based band that have a passion for cranked-to-the-max, vintage-influenced sound, delivered with skill and abandon (especially in live performance), adds serious power and drive to their crafted, meaningful lyrics, exploring present day "issues of permanence."
CoN's founder, guitarist Bruce John Dickinson played in the charting hard rock band Little Angels between 1988-1994. Little Angels' album 'Jam' went to number one in the UK album chart in 1993 with the band enjoying 11 Top Forty hit singles, which still get well-deserved airplay on Planet Rock today. Little Angels opened for Guns N' Roses at the Marquee Club in 88 and went on to tour with
Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, ZZ Top, Aerosmith and other heavyweight acts. The band played their final gig to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall in 1994. They would, however, reform in 2012 for the
Download Festival.

The reunion revived Bruce's determination to perform again, leading him to form Colour of Noise in 2015 with friends linked and gathered throughout the years: Vocalist Matt Mitchell from Furyon; and' Silent' Ben Daniels on bass. CoN's current line-up reunites Bruce John Dickinson with fellow
Little Angel Mark Richardson (also of Feeder and Skunk Anansie) on drums.

Midlands Rocks described the band as "ones to watch in 2016." Colour of Noise's self-titled debut was pre-released via Pledge Music in November 2015, following the road testing of songs on tour with Thunder, at the Download and Steel House festivals and Hard Rock Hell IX.

CoN's last three singles ('Cant Take It With You', 'Can You Hear Me', and 'Medicine Man' ) taken from the debut album have all been playlisted by Planet Rock, featured as Classic Rock's 'Tracks Of The Week and gained plenty of regional airplay.

Cant Take It With You http://teamrock.com/feature/2015-12-11/classic-rock-s-tracks-of-the-week-54
Can You Hear Me http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-02-26/classic-rock-s-tracks-of-the-week-63

Medicine Man http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-10-21/david-bowie-glenn-hughes-sixx-am-and-more-vote-for-your-track-of-the-week

The band's most recent single, 'Medicine Man' (an exclusive from RAK Studios) was produced by Luke Postashnick of The Temperance Movement, whilst the song's heady psychedelic video was directed by Mikee W Goodman (not only a member of progressive metal band SikTh, but also an award-winning director).

RAWRAMP vividly describes 'Medicine Man' this way: We had a listen — The ooze of this guck sucks you into it like a hidden vortex in a mudhole. The dark pools of riff fizzle in the viscose acidity...

If you can imagine a psychedelic jug band had come-over all fuzzy because they listened to too much of Hawkwinds 'Silver Machine' then you might be able to picture the sound here. It has a spongy texture and aptly suits the topic: The user/dealer experience — as the addict becomes swallowed in an increasingly inescapable circle of dependency.

CoN see themselves as a live band. Moshville Times agrees, With a band like Colour of Noise, its great to see musicians play to a room and have as much fun as their audience.

In 2016, the band have played Download, Steel House, Ramblin' Man, Wildfire (where they headlined), Hard Rock Hell, Stone Free, and Cambridge Rocks. They've also supported Thunder, Dead Daisies, and Toseland.
Powerplay Magazine caught CoN's London show and said, "What we witnessed tonight was a band developing like the groups they were influenced by and also doing it how they used to, by schlepping up and down the country and playing gigs."

Powerplay also caught Colour of Noise's set at Stone Free festival: "Colour of Noise came out next and know how to pull a crowd in thanks to the capable experiences of former Little Angels guitarist
Bruce Dickinson, looking like he just filled in for Rival Sons, and former Pride and Furyon singer Matt Mitchell. The combination of the two ensured a blistering rock set. 'You Only Call Me' and
'Medicine Man' really getting the reasonable size crowd moving.

'Can You Hear Me', 'Can't Take It With You' and 'Hit Rock Bottom' all prove that they were one of the top bands of the day. No massive sets, no stage arena, just classy rock 'n' roll. I can't wait to see them again."

Dickinson retains an ear for an ultra-catchy riff," said Rushonrock, "and there’s a burning authenticity underpinning the bombastic 'Hit Rock Bottom' and groovesome 'Can’t Take It With You’. CON artists? More like the real thing.

RAMzine also praised the band's style, sound and look: Brighton cult favourites Colour of Noise: a fine blend of 60s blues-rock, Audioslave-esque vocals and a dislocation of 90’s Brit-rock. This band are definitely dressed to the nines and sound just as cool and quirky.
