EUROPEAN TOUR / DEBUT ALBUM
Since kicking off their first UK Tour and the release of their debut album - 'Come Out To Play' - in May 2012, Scottish rockers ESTRELLA have been earning themselves a reputation as one of the best live up-and-coming British rock bands around today!
Now selling out headline gigs, they have created a real underground buzz within the UK's rock community for not only delivering irrepressible live performances - firmly led by a captivating frontman coupled with stunning STAND OUT lead guitar solos – but by accumulating an ever increasing fan base of loyal Estrella Warriors!
Their sound is pure 70/80s infused rock - mixed with melody and riffs, thunderous beats and anthemic choruses - delivered with a fresh modern twist that places rock back in today's mainstream music!
