We won’t bore you with where we were before we became LifeCry… We’ve had our successes and failures (who hasn’t!) but frankly that doesn’t matter, and hey, if you recognise us from before, so much the better; make sure you follow our progress from here.
LifeCry is a Hertfordshire based Melodic Orchestral Rock/Metal band that became a reality in March 2012 when Mr.Tee, Simon Eightball and Dave Rook lay down a concept sound with a grounding in war and struggle; the internal and external human journeys that make us all who we are. Zara North joined the band in November 2012 and gave voice, melody and an understanding to the sound.
Liam Orlowski Joined the band July 2016, replacing Simon Eightball. In January 2018 Cheryl joined the band replacing Zara North.
We’re here to stir you, to make you feel, to make you think and to make you listen. We’re here to create that feeling in your chest when something moves you and makes you feel alive.
If that sounds like something you’re in to, then what else can we say? Why not get to know us?
