TSOM are a high energy rock band from Witney in Oxfordshire.  Sounding something like the Chili Peppers blended with System of a Down - mixed with Queen like vocal harmonies, their songs are brimming with massive hooks.  Based in the UK - the journey so far has included 3 U.S. tours, 3 singles with  U.S. based Toil Records, and playing alongside some major artists on both sides of the Atlantic. 

In 2018 the band went to Germany and began work on their first full studio album.  Their  summer festival schedule has taken them across Germany and back to the UK before they return to Germany in summer 2019 once again to finish work on the album.

Gigging from the age of 11, TSOM have built their reputation from great live performances. They played their first US headline show at The Legendary Dobbs in Philadelphia aged 13, watched by one of their early supporters - Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden.  In 2012, and aged 12 they released their debut EP - "RISE".  The video for the title track has over 50,000 views on YouTube, and although not now part of their live set it began the journey, which has also included 

playing live on stage with some incredible  

people, including Duff McKagan, Tony Hadley and Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.  TSOM also managed a few minutes on the BBC news after falling out with David Cameron.  All these videos and performances are in the video app below.  

Their second EP "Bury The Bitch" was also very well received and got some great reviews, and was also selected by TBFM radio above 22 other unsigned bands for their "Triple Play".  

They also recorded their first single in the US for Toil Records in 2014 "Letting Go" whilst on their second US tour.  You can see all the official band videos including "RISE" and "Letting Go" on the band Media page. 

After the tragic death of their school friend Liberty Baker, they returned to the studio in June 2015 to record  a charity single in her memory called "Forever". They pressed 500 copies, which were all sold on the first day of release.
