Formed in Ipswich in 2009, Basement comprises of brothers Andrew Fisher (vocals) and James Fisher (drums), plus
Alex Henery (guitar / vocals), Ronan Crix(guitar) and Duncan Stewart (bass). Just a year after forming, Basement
released their debut album ‘I Wish I Could Stay Here’ and quickly followed it with 2012’s breakthrough second album
In 2014, they regrouped to pen the ‘Further Sky’ EP, which breathed new life into the five friends. Inspired by the
creative chemistry they felt from the sessions, Basement were ready to begin on a more significant body of work,
which would later become the celebrated ‘Promise Everything’.
