BAND BIOGRAPHY

“WE ARE ELECTUS!” - West Midlands, U.K. Based HARD ROCK BAND!


ELECTUS can be accredited to Rhythm Guitarist/Vocalist Russell Peake in early 2008 when he knew that it was time to form a group that would satisfy his hunger & Passion for Hard Rock Music.


As the music progressed concentrating on songwriting from 2003 & from the initial acoustic 
recordings & occasional touring the song list grew, the line-up expanded to welcome Dan Smith in 2014 on Bass. 2015 the band welcomed Mick Hales on the Drums & Pete Checkley on Lead Guitar! 
With a lineup complete ELECTUS! wasted no time learning the material and launching onto the UK gigging circuit.
ELECTUS! has no boundaries blending all the elements which have influenced the band along 
with melodic chorus lines giving the band the breathing room to experiment their passion.


ELECTUS will always create music which conjures the full range of emotions & deliver a Visual live performance that leaves the audience thinking “WOW!... More Please!”...
