East 17 opt for 'house of rock'
East 17, who are known for their distinct blend of British pop and R&B, stated in a press release that their record Dark Light, which comes out in April, showcases their "new transatlantic rock sound, reminiscent of bands like Kings Of Leon and U2 and even artists like Brian Adams and Billy Joel".
The band will be performing as a threesome after Brian Harvey, their pint-sized rapper, left after a disagreement about his ability to commit.
Although disappointed, Tony Mortimer, John Hendy and Terry Coldwell decided to continue on without him.
Judging by the images of the band on their official website, they still mean serious business – the moody look suggests they haven't lost any of the spark that made them famous back in the early 90s.
Mortimer expanded on East 17's new direction: "I think everyone is subconsciously inspired by American music and rock 'n' roll and this time around we wanted to do something more live with less tricks."
