Age of Distraction

Age of Distraction is a thrilling new collaboration which spans across the contemporary UK progressive rock circuit.

In 2023, founder member and guitarist John Cook (ex-This Winter Machine, ex-This Other Eden) began writing the songs that would shape the musical direction of this new band. He recruited rising-star Charlie Bramald (Ghost of the Machine, Shadows On Mercury) on vocals, gravity-defying bassist Mark Gatland (Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate, IT), and multi-instrumentalist plus producer-extraordinaire Dom Bennison (Last Motion Picture, ex-This Winter Machine) to occupy the drum stool and handle production duties.

Together, Age of Distraction has created a debut album which explores the boundaries of melodic, accessible progressive rock and metal, evoking a unique sonic atmosphere in the process.
