Suburban Myth is an alternative rock band that takes its music influences from bands such as The Goo Goo Dolls and Shine down, with lyrical influences ranging from rock legends such as Mike Peters to Paul Rodgers. However they bring their own unique individualism which together produces a melodic rock sound that surrounds and encompasses storytelling that gets the feet moving and the mind reflecting.
Welcome (If Only) which will be released July 28th, is the latest single from Suburban Myth with the album of the same name following the single release on August 11th.

Welcome was born through the collaboration and dedication of Phil Wormall (Lyricist) and Derek Daisey (composer) thousands of miles apart but just a second away in an online collaboration that has brought to life this punchy rock track. Full of melody, story and guitar mashing these guys know how to compose a song. This track has an electric atmosphere to it with a hard thrashing beat behind it that is complimented perfectly by the hardcore tones of vocalist Derek Daisey.
Over a four year period the partnership and friendship of Phil and Derek grew stronger to the point where Derek relocated from New York to Charleston, South Carolina, where Suburban Myth was formed and one part of the journey was complete. Songs were starting to be written at a rapid pace, with over 40 songs composed it was time to release “Plastic Souls” Suburban Myths EP. A six track compilation that received great reviews with the single “River of life” which saw a good deal of media attention, reaching No.3 in the Reverbnation charts in South Carolina. Following on from that success, they created ‘Can you help me find my Christmas’, which received air time on BBC radio.
“This outfit have a tasty way with a trad-indie-alt-rock tune and there’s a rising taste for this sort of thing in the face of the deluge of hideously cheesy dance-pop…”
Thomas H Green – Daily Telegraph/Arts Desk/Mixmag/Napster
“They are the kind of band you’ll be lucky enough to see up close and personal in a small venue, as a growing name… Until they hit the mega bucks, and they’ll be headlining festivals before you know it.”
Suzie Kidger – News Reviews
“…With sing-a-long melodies, conventional structures and a radio friendly quality, there’s little to stop this band becoming a household name in time to come… Heavily influenced by those who have profited from the Goo Goo Dolls, Seether and Matchbox 20 sound, their music is marketable…”
