Formed in 2013, Derange is made up of Cat Pereira (Vocals), Nick Crosby (Guitar), Justas Brazdžiūnas (guitar) and Joe Macpherson (Bass).

London's purveyors of 'Sassrock', Derange are a wall slab of tech-influenced alternative-metal, accompanied by imagery inspired by cinema and video games. They’re a sonic blend of angst and diversity, described as a ‘perfect blend of metal madness and subtle beauty’ (Jammerzine), all topped off by the haunting and powerful vocals of Cat Pereira. Described by Russ Russell as ‘one of the best vocalists I’ve ever come across’.
Since joining Elicit Music in 2018, Derange has released singles “Runaway” and “Divide”, which we’re welcomed with great reviews and have set a new path for their new sound since their debut album ‘The Awakening’. This has led to playing shows alongside Exist Immortal and On Hollow Ground in early 2019. With an up and coming UK tour alongside Valis Ablaze and show offers flooding in, new music awaits release, and Derange are using their time wisely to get their audience excited to hear what's in store for the future.
