Plainview is a hard rock band formed in early 2013 by brothers Dave and Jonny Smale, drummer Chris Williams, and bassist Danny Cross.
Initially formed as a result of four tour-hardened musicians' desire to get back on the road, Plainview locked themselves away for six months writing and rehearsing an album's worth of material. By summer 2013 the band were ready to record, with the aim of a winter release and a heavy tour schedule come 2014.
Influenced by the hard rock and grunge bands of the early 90s, Plainview fuse their passion for soaring vocal melodies, grinding metal riffs and crushing drums to create a uniquely dark and infectious sound with their debut 10 track self-titled album.
The album was released digitally on October the 25th 2013 via iTunes and various other online platforms. The CD was released on December the 21st 2013 and is available via Big Cartel
