The theme of positivity and self-expression underpin JUNIOR‘s first album and are key to the band’s own identity. Beyond this, the band’s drummer Si Martin is known for running mental health non-profit Heads Above The Waves, which raises awareness of depression and self-harm in young people.

In addition to SiJUNIOR‘s vocalist/bassist is well-known WWE wrestler Mark Andrews who performs weekly on NXT, 205 Live and NXT UK to an audience of millions. Guitarist and co-vocalist Matt Attard writes theme tunes for wrestlers – and all band members have been keeping themselves busy in the time of Coronavirus.

Mark created a homemade wrestling eventMatt’s written more wrestling themes, and Si continues to run his charity from home.

The trio’s vital messages do not detract from the fact that JUNIOR are, above all else, a fun band. The highly versatile and impressively mature debut brings to mind elements of Blink-182Biffy Clyro, and Jimmy Eat World, breaking beyond anthemic pop-punk tropes to create a highly irresistible first offering to all fans of modern rock.

In their short history, JUNIOR have already played Download Festival, toured Canada, headlined London’s The Dome and received significant support from Rock Sound, Kerrang!, Alt Press and many more.
