<p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Forty Four Hours comprise redhead twins, Joe and Alex, joined by drummer Alix. The band was created in 2014, and are known for&nbsp;their stage presence, with Joe saying,&nbsp;</p>

“We’ll play the same show to ten people as we would ten thousand!”

Forty Four Hours aim to break genre boundaries, bringing a new sound to the alternative scene.

<p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">The four-track alternative EP displays the band's impressive talents as musicians: with strong guitars, drums and vocals, as well as how they have incorporated keys and electronics, creating a genre-defying sound.</p>

Forty Four Hours’ debut single, ‘Earl Gray’ received high praise from both fans and critics alike, and so Forty Four Hours hope ‘Only Just Holding On’ will receive similar commendations. The band will tour to promote the EP, starting on January 24.  

‘Only Just Holding On’ is self-released and will be available from all major distributors from 22 January. CDs will be available for £3 from the band’s online store.
