Killers by: Ryan Burnett & The Vanguards


Ryan Burnett and The Vanguards, announce the release of debut single, Killers, out 30th October with Ryan as the face of the new Guitar Hero Live game.


Ryan moved from Manchester to Brighton at the age of 17 on receiving a scholarship to study music. He went on to form and play in several bands, recording albums and touring all over the world with previous band The Crave. Performance highlights included opening two sell-out Hammersmith Apollo shows, Rock Am Ring and three tours of the US.

After a period in Nashville, writing and working on new material, and realising that a solo career was not the direction for him, singer-songwriter Ryan formed The Vanguards with CJ Evans, Dan Logan and Ben Johnsen.  The band’s music has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and Kodaline, but The Vanguards are set on printing their own contemporary stamp on a popular sound. The band is backed by Metropolis Studios Label team, with the track produced and mixed by Guy Chambers’ right hand man Paul Stanborough (Katie MeluaKylieINXS), and mastered by Mazen Murad (The Rolling StonesMuseBjörk).

Ryan was chosen to front the new Guitar Hero Live game, released earlier this month, but this is a great time to highlight Ryan and the band, being all about the music and performing live as often as possible. The band will next perform live on 10 November at Paper Dress Vintage Boutique and then on 30 November at the Sebright Arms. For details of all upcoming gigs, keep an eye on the website.

The Vanguards released their debut single to coincide with the Guitar Hero Live launch, with ‘Killers’ out on 30th October 2015.  Impact date is 4th December 2015.
