Fortune Favours The Brave was formed in late 2006 after the collapse of My Own Enemy (Adam Aldridge, Ashley Dines, Jamie Tritton). They have gone through various name changes including 'Rivers Run Red' and 'Twist the Knife'.
In the first year of being together a 3 track Demo entitled Flourish and Grow was recorded by Adam at his home studio. The songs on the demo have since been re-recorded for a new e.p with new lyrics and vocal patterns. Their musical style is somewhat frenetic with brutal drumming and shredding guitar solos found prominently on their songs Between The Bullets And The Bloodstains and Call of Duty. After initially gigging in the Essex area the band started branching out and playing further afield with gigs in London and the like.
FFTB have recently finished recording their debut album Through The Bullets And The Bloodstains which is due for release through Transcend Records April 2011. They have been touring extensively and have been playing a few songs off of the album which have been met with great reception from fans. During the recording of their debut album the band have documented the process with a video diary entitled Between The Bullshit and The Shitstains. On 15 March 2011 the Band confirmed that their debut album will be released on 23 May 2011 via their Twitter Page. Long time friend and touring bassist Rob Oliver was confirmed as the bands new bassist on 22 May 2011 and that there has been an amicable split with Transcend Records, both via their Facebook page.
