We are The Routines. Three friends from Caernarfon, North Wales. Dion Jones on Lead Vocals and Guitar, Jamie Thomas on Bass Guitar and Gethin Magee on Drums and Backing Vocals. Influenced by the humdrum life of full-time menial work in a place where even that is scarce and sought after. Big listeners of Pete Doherty's work, Sleaford Mods and other hard-hitting bands with spot on social observations, we have found what we like to write and sing about.
We are the working-class band that has been missing from the scene for a while now. We like who and what we are and we do not hide behind a story of ourselves in our lyrics or in our demeanour. Our live shows are what we live for and they are extremely energetic. Jumping off platforms and into the crowd is a regular occurrence.
Having released two English singles through Youtube videos, we have just released our first Welsh singles in 'di Arfar and Lyfiw Del. Carrying on a narrative of our social observations. Stories from the eyes of everyday people about everyday things.
What are we working on at the moment? A couple more Welsh singles on the way and currently recording our debut English album.
