Newcastle, County Down
Co. Down four piece Inch High have established themselves as one of the premier rock acts in N.Ireland.
Their 2005 debut album “Look kids, its Big Ben” received widespread critical acclaim including a 4K review
in rock/metal bible Kerrang! Magazine. Showcase gigs in London and a top 5 inclusion in the “Best unsigned
band” category of the 2005 Kerrang! Reader’s poll finished off an already amazing year.
2006 saw the band developing their fan base with an already renowned live reputation landing them
numerous headline appearances at rock nights throughout Ireland. They also got a coveted slot on the Belfast
leg of the 2006 IMRO showcase tour in June, a slot at the Celtic Fusion festival in August, and the support
slot on the Irish tour of UK rock legends The Quireboys. In November the band were included in the 10th
anniversary line-up of the belFEST showcase event.
In 2007,Classic Rock magazine contributor Jeff Collins described the band as “…having more hooks than a
convention of one-armed pirates…hard-hitting, a real joy to listen to…Inch High in name, potential rock
giants in the making…”
Spring 2008 saw the band supporting NWOBHM legends, Tygers of Pan Tang, on the Irish leg of their UK
tour as well as finishing recording sessions for their second album “The engine sounds…”.
The album was released in Nov 2008 and Kerrang again praised the band, saying of the album,”…Irish hard
rockers burn bright with promise…good songwriting comes naturally…INCH HIGH have done a fine job…”
The year finished with a bang as the band secured support slots with rising Irish hopefuls, The Answer and
US rockers Black Stone Cherry.
In May 2009 the band shot their first video for the live favourite, “Little man”.The band continued to develop
their fan base locally and in November they supported Scottish rockers Gun on their Irish dates. The year
ended with The Quireboys again asking the band to support them at their Belfast show.
