About the band…

By Definition

For the last six years there has been a band in Brighton’s humming music scene. A band who eschews the more traditional rock and metal stereotypes. A band who have time and again proven they’ve got what it takes to give the audience what it needs. That band is By Definition.
Dubbed “The Hardest Working Band in Brighton”, By Definition have taken the city by storm with their no-nonsense approach to heavy music, an explosive live show and an unstoppable charm that’s sure to win you over. In a time bristling with introspective indie and screaming metal, By Definition are here to show people what it truly means to rock in the 21st Century.

For proof, check out their EP “Over Clocked, Under Threat” which is available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and AmazonMP3.

Well received by fans and critics alike, “Over Clocked, Under Threat” is a combination of soaring riffs and down ‘n’ dirty foot stompers, guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a crick in your neck!

With support slots for Black Label Society in Europe and Black Stone Cherry at a sold out show in Brighton under their belts, plus a new album on the horizon, By Definition are surely the band to be watching in the next year.
By Definition are coming. Will you be there?


Opener track “Dead Stop” hits home hard and doesn’t take a moment to let up. The inexplicably contagious, albeit raw, rhythm of this song when combined with Si’s dirty vocals, makes for a sure fire hit.

Straight-forward, heavy-hitting and down right filthy are, By Definition, what this Brighton, UK based Southern/Stoner Metal band are all about. The band bulldozes through four titanic chunks of raw, unpolished heaviness on their latest EP “Overclocked, Under Threat”. Leading the way is the mesmerizing gritty snarl of vocalist Si. Each song shit-kicks you with punishing riffage, bombastic drumming and a whiskey-swilling attitude. These boys have been putting a boot up your ass for some time now with their high octane live shows. Show your support and check them out!

“Overclocked, Under Threat” is best described as the 30 year old you’re not entirely sure you invited to your party, who has drunk all the beer, eaten all the food and is hitting on all your friends. You may not have invited him, but frankly, he doesn’t care and you kind of want to get to know him anyway after you’ve busted out a secret stash of whiskey saved for emergencies.
