Box Time – Another Excuse (2020)

Box Time is a four-piece from London ready to capture you with their relentless rhythm. The band came together in 2018, but members John Chamberlain (vocals, guitar), Barny Skinner (backing vocals, guitar), Paddy Chamberlain (bass) and Ryan Peek (drums) all knew each other and had played together in the past. In a matter of weeks, they were tweaking their sound from acoustic bedroom to fast-paced rock.
