Formed in 2013, Derange is made up of Cat Pereira (Vocals), Nick Crosby (Guitar), Joe Macpherson (Bass) and Joe Farrell (Drums) . They marked their work soon after their inception, with their singles ‘Ego’ and ‘Unleash’, appealing to fans and receiving positive reviews.

In 2014, Derange would take their time to produce their acclaimed EP ‘Change’, featuring their single ‘Pretty Ones’.  Once released, it brought the band to a much wider audience, and garnering national press.

Throughout the rest of 2014 and 2015 the band were hard at work bringing their debut album ‘The Awakening’ to fruition. Produced by the legendary Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Sikth, Amorphis and Evile) ‘The Awakening’ is a glorious tech-metal affair, referencing forward thinking bands like Karnivool, TesseracT, Periphery and Dead Letter Circus, all topped off by the haunting and powerful vocals of Cat Pereira. Described by Russell as ‘one of the best vocalists I’ve ever come across’.

Their first album single ‘The Thinker’ was released and premiered through MetalHammer, instantly creating a buzz through social media. Following the successful release of Derange’s new music video, the bands debut album ‘The Awakening’ was released October 5th 2015, gathering excellent online press, and featured in such publications as Metalhammer, PowerPlay magazine, and Fireworks. Following this successful release, Derange went on to have a great 2016 by touring the UK and Europe, and having the opportunity to play Bloodstock festival at the Sophie Lancaster Stage as well as HRH Metal. Since then, the band has been hard at work bringing their long awaited new material to fruition such as their band new single’s ‘runaway’ from their upcoming album coming in late 2019.
