Metal five-piece band, The Hollow Earth Theory, have won a competition to play at Scuzz TV’s online launch party.

The gig will be broadcast live on the new Scuzz website and rock social network from the Electric Ballroom in Camden Town on November 29.

The band earned the opportunity to kick off the gig and play alongside bands Reuben and Exit Ten.

Bass guitarist and vocals, Chris Clark, a student at Staffordshire University, said: “We didn’t expect to win, we saw the competition on the Scuzz channel and thought it would be worth a shot, but didn’t anticipate winning at all.

“We are all feeling very excited about the prospect of this gig.”

“We have played with Exit Ten before and they are incredible live, it should be a very good night.”

Chris is joined by Ben Davis, guitar and vocals, Craig Mackay, drums and samples, Nathan Biggs, vocals and Jonathan Stubbs, guitars, in the band Kerrang! FM named as their ‘Official Breakthru band’.

After the gig, the Electric Ballroom will be turned into a 1,200 people rock club until 3am with metal and rock DJs Angels of Decks.

The Hollow Earth Theory not only write and perform, they have also directed their own music video for their single ‘Letter to the Lost’ which was played on Redemption TV and Scuzz.

The band, who are influenced by acts such as Pantera, AC/DC, Queen and Slipknot, recently came fourth out of 185 bands in the Kerrang! Overplay National Battle Of The Bands.

Their latest release ‘Hanging on the Followers’ has gained the band stacks of radio time across Europe, America, Canada and Australia.

They have been the cover mount CD of Metal Hammer twice and have been interviewed by magazines and radio stations, such as Total Rock and Unsigned magazine.

Kerrang! magazine, said: “There’s no greater proof of power than the ability to master subtlety within grim heaviness.

“Most metal acts do one or the other a few, like this band, do both.”

Chris hopes that the gig will generate word of mouth for the band and establish them a bigger fan base.

“Fingers crossed people will recognise the name when we release our full length album early next year,” he said.

Tickets for the launch party are £5 and are available from their website

Doors open at 7pm.
